I think you're okay with the 576 (it has HDMI connectors need it to get HD audio from PS3); the 576 can decode DolbyDigital Plus, so maybe you'll need to decode other formats on PS3 ...but you'll be fine.I was considering the Onkyo TX-SR576 which is priced at 350 euro which sounds reasonable to me. Am I right in the assumption that I do not need a receiver to decode HD signals as the PS3 can output the sound in linear PCM ? Or must I invest in a HD decoder? Is the extar price for the HD worth it ?
Good luck with your project.
