For PS3, it's a different story - 7.1 lossless and/or 3D. Since xbox only does 5.1 dolby and 2D, the benefits of HDMI are somewhat wasted on a 360.
Yep. Most won't see a difference, and many that do will see a perceived
difference rather than an actual one, perhaps trying to justify that $1100 HDMI cable from BestBuy: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/AudioQue...383276&st=hdmi
It is cleaner running one cable though, but not worth a grand! Talk about making Monster look affordable!
The only exception I can think of is if your display has different setting parameters and options for HDMI versus component, like mine. Even then, it's a matter of visual preference more than anything.
