Reason NOT to buy the Onkyo 604?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a PS3 and watch BR movies and want to knwo if there is any reason NOT to buy the Onkyo 604? I looked at the 605 but there is about $100 to$200 price difference and the PS3 passes DDTHD and PCM as PCM, the only worry is how will the PS3 output DTS-MA (if it ever does)? Any major issues with this receiver and the PS3? Also, will the 604 output 7.1 PCM if the signal is 7.1? If it can what if the original signal is a 6.1 PCM how is this output?

The 604 does not pass 6.1 or 7.1 PCM, both will pass as 5.1. Also, it does not Matrix 5.1 PCM into 7.1. The 605 will pass 6.1 and 7.1 PCM, but also wont Matrix 5.1 PCM to 7.1.

Pretty sure it's 1080i only, which is no factor to me, but it seems for many this would be a deal breaker.

Its 1080p for HDMI... Are you talking about component? Onkyo.com says "HDMI 2 Input / 1 Output, 1080p bandwith - ready for next generation DVD players".

The 605 is 1080p, but I am pretty sure the 604 is 1080i only. Well, that was my one experience with it anyways, no video from a PS3 at 1080p, video at 1080i anyways. using HDMI.

I can't imagine it being 1080i over HDMI, but as you had it, I would take your word on it.
