well any receiver that accepts audio via HDMI should accept LPCM, but i'm pretty sure receivers with HDMI switching don't accept the audio through HDMI, it does what it sounds like it does, it acts as a switcher. i guess i need a receiver with HDMI repeating then.
for someone who doesn't consider himself a big audiophile, is lossless audio worth it? is there a noticeable difference over DD/DTS? my older Yamaha receiver is kind of flakey and i just got a $175 giftcard for a local electronics store, so i was originally planning on just getting a Harman Kardon AVR-146 (which is just a basic 5.1 receiver with HDMI switching), but then theres an Onkyo TX576 7.1 with HDMI repeating (but no DTSMA/TrueHD decoding, but i wouldn't need it with the PS3) for only 80-100 more. but then again, i think i like harman kardon more than onkyo.
