500-700 dollar receiver

I'm looking for a receiver for my media room. It'll likely be paired with Aperion's 533 Cinema HD 5.1 speaker set. My sources are going to be a Moto cable box (component and optical), PS3 for gaming and Blu-ray (HDMI), and Xbox 360 for HD-DVD and gaming (component and optical). I just want HDMI video passthrough to my Panny plasma, no upscaling or altering of the signal needed.

Was looking at the Yamaha RX-V661, which seems pretty popular. It doesn't decode DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD, but the PS3 decodes those internally and sends them via 5.1/7.1 channel PCM, right? Also looking at Denon AVR-887 and Onkyo's 605 receiver, or anything else up to 700 bucks.
