The ES line is Sony's best - which speaks volumes about the rest of their stuff. You have stated it isn't getting it done for you. I think you answered that question in your first post.

I'm in the same boat. I bought a Panasonic 60st30, a PS3 for blu-ray and I have an Onkyo 807 receiver which doesn't do 3d passthrough. If I use my suggestion and utilize the PS3 optical out, would I lose anything else besides True HD? I don't want to have to shell out another grand for a different receiver; I just got the 807 like a year a half ago. Thanks.

Is there a dual hdmi out blue ray player u guts know of that I could get from BB? I was thinking about it and I just love the 1007 so I might as well keep it and do the dual hdmi with new blue ray. Only thing is th arc on my tv won't work. Then I could the money I'm saving into a nice set of tower speakers?

Hello,

Sony really has been trailing behind when it comes to AVR's these days. Often the value/performance ratio is not very good. Especially when spending $1000 Dollars plus.


Provided your 1007 is still working well, I really would simply get a BDP with dual HDMI Outputs and call it a day. Granted 3D is now available via many Cable and Satellite Providers as well, but the offerings are relatively sparse. Moreover, 3D is really not gaining a great deal of traction in HT. I totally understand Movie Theaters charging almost double for 3D Movies to maximize revenue, but so often the Picture there is so dark and often poorly presented. It seems for every Avatar, there are about 10 Clash of the Titans...

Cheers,

AD

If cash is a concern go with the least expensive option: dual hdmi bluray.


Not worth replacing the 1007 unless you sell it for enough cash to offset the cost of a 3008.

Or a Samsung - 3D Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player Model: BDD6700ZA if you need better streaming off of a usb hard drive and a 1 year warranty vs. a 90 for the panasonic.

I would keep what you have and run toslink to the receiver and HDMI to the TV. I have a ps3 setup this way and it sounds the same as when I ran HDMI through my receiver. I think the newer 7.1 codecs sound pretty much the same as dolby digital.
