What I really want is a receiver that can do 7.1 LPCM, and even layer DPIIx over 5.1 and 6.1 PCM, as well as not have any of the bass management issues or any of that, for say under $600 out the door, but I know that such a receiver doesn't currently exist.


So instead, I'm looking for a cheapo receiver that can do lossless 5.1 for one of my other rooms. I have a small bedroom, with a nice 5.1 setup in there, and sometimes I watch HD-DVD movies and Blu Ray movies in there (when I happen to have my PS3 or Xbox with HD-DVD attachment hooked up in that room) , and I notice that alot of the Blu Ray movies have 5.1 PCM soundtracks, so I would love a cheapo receiver that can simply work with my PS3 and give me the true 5.1 PCM sound. I have no need for 7.1 in this particular room, and I don't even care about the bass management issues, cause this is a small room and I don't need earth shattering sound in there. Just would like it to be crystal clear and impressive. What is the cheapest one that can handle this? Anything under $350 out the door, or do they all start higher than that?

The Panasonic XR57 would fit that bill...I think it's cheapest although it's not that much cheaper than the Onkyo 604.

I bought my Onkyo 604 last month at CC for $349 when they have the year end clearance sale (plus a price match from an online retailer.


So far, no problems on my setup;

PS3 and HD DVD add-on => Onkyo 604=> Mitsu WD65731
