The Onkyo TXSR576 is the perfect way to make the move to High Definition without breaking the bank. With an impressive array of features, the TXSR576 will be a top-notch hub for your home cinema system.

Supporting 7.1 channels of audio, the TX-SR576 is ideal for use with DVD and Blu-ray. Via HDMI, it will decode Dolby Digital Plus - the new HD audio format commonly found on Blu-ray movies, as well as standard Dolby Digital and DTS. The impressive surround sound will immerse you in your movies and make the experience all the more enjoyable. Set-up is also made easy, thanks to the Audyssey 2EQ equalisation and calibration system.

HD video is no problem either as the TXSR576 has three HDMI inputs and one output supporting 1080p pass-through switching. There's also component video, S-Video and composite video inputs and outputs for use with non-HDMI devices.

If you want to join the HD revolution, but don't want a hefty price tag, then the Onkyo TXSR576 is an excellent choice.

Doesn't decode DTS-MA or Dolby TrueHD unlike the TX-SR606 which is around £150 more but if your connecting to a PS3 for Bluray then that doesn't matter as the PS3 can only decode and send these formats via LPCM as it is unable to send these formats via bitstream. So just set the PS3 to LPCM and the 576 will output these streams as Multichannel audio just the same as how you'd have to receive them on a 606 via a PS3!

Seems to be a lot of negative voting for this deal, without any explanation being given.

If members feel this is not a good deal, would be helpful if they could state the reasons why.

I'd guess they don't really understand what it is and would rather buy a £100 Philips all-in-one :roll:

most other retailers want at least £250 for the same receiver (many nearer £280) a 5.1/7.1 Onkyo AV reciever for less than £200 is a good deal to my eyes/ears

Or connect via optical and use bitstream.

I'm guessing that's why someone has selfishly expired it. I've reported using the report post button so hopefully a mod will unexpire shortly

Optical doesn't carry enough bandwidth for DTS-MA or TrueHD. Has to be HDMI

I understand that, it wasnt a solution to achieving HD sound but to enabling bitstream using optical instead of running via HDMI cables and LPCM. I misread a bit of your post to.

Have read its better to use bitstream via optical where you dont have a HD receiver.

Cracking deal, I got the 506 a few months back for £210 which was very cheap and its very good.

If your using it with a PS3 the Bitstream audio issue only affects HD audio. for normal Dolby digital audio for games/SD-DVD/video playback Bitstreaming from the PS3 works fine.

So my settings for BluRay etc on my PS3 are both set to bitsream instead of LPCM as Im connected via optical, is this correct or will I miss out on any sound if its not on LPCM in the settings?

If your 506 can carry LPCM over HDMI (I'm not sure from memory if the 506 does) then you need to set BD/DVD audio to LPCM when watching blu-ray , the PS3 will then decode and send via HDMI as multichannel to the amp. Hit the select button on remote when watching a bluray and it will tell you the audio codec is TrueHD/DTS-MA even though the amp is showing multichannel.

If you watching a normal DVD set the audio output to bitstream and the AMP will then do the decoding and should indicate correct codec on it's display (DD/DTS etc..)

If you 506 doesn't do LPCM over HDMI you are best to just leave it as you have it on bitstream as you will not be able to get HD audio from the PS3 over Optical and at least you will have the AMP lighting up for DD/DTS :-)

Afraid it looks like your 506 doesn't handle any audio over HDMI just video passthrough. You'd need to upgrade to a 576/606 to get HD audio I'm afraid.
