    not to sure on the speakers, but the amp looks good for the job, although, the amp is 7:1, ur selected speakers are 5:! - 2 short

    it is all you need, the amp is very good but the speakers won't give you the full potential of the sound scape the amp can deliver

    You will also need a cable to link the PS3 up, i use an Optical cable, but you can use a HDMI if your reciever supports it

    Sony - pay for name
    Onkyo - pay for hardware

    that said, that particular sony amp does look pretty decent, does it have hdmi audio passthru tho?
    The last sony one I looked into did not take the audio from the hdmi inputs

    Have a look here: avforums.com/for…cs/ for some sound advice.


    Apologies for the pun......lol

    Some receivers only carry the picture through the hdmi, so you need separate phono connections for the audio. Quality suffers too:thumbsup:

    Why on earth would you use phonos?

    Any device that has HDMI out will have either a digital coaxial or an optical. You would use these for the audio and HDMI for the picture. You would need to tell the output device to use the coax/optical and then you would need to marry up the two signals on the amp.

    I have that amp, it passes through audio and picture on the hdmi, it all works very well, and passes the picture on the hdmi output to the TV, its a sweet amp.
