    Is it worth getting a AVR for PS3/PS4?

    Right guys how is this possible, since 1.4 spec most Home Cinema kits only have 1 HDMi(Arc) output with no inputs
    So how can I get uncompressed DTS/DD HD Master from the PS3?

    Update: see new post

    I currently have a pre-HDMi system so I'm setup via optical but I plan on getting a new HCS to replace it
    They all support uncompressed audio but they only have 1 HDMi so I'm confused
    Far as I know you have to plug your PS3 into the HCS via HDMi and then send it to the TV
    but you can't do that if theirs no inputs
    I know the stand alone AV receivers have multiple inputs
    But I ain't got to be tracking down good speakers to go with the thing for double the price lol

    Heres the one I'm looking at

    Where is REFLEX when you need him

    Haha, fair enough.

    What about:

    PS3 - Hdmi - Tv
    Tv - Optical Audio Cable - HTIB.

    Or

    PS3 - Hdmi - Tv
    PS3 - Optical - HTIB
    HTIB - Hdmi - Tv

    A receiver may be worth it in the long run. You don't need expensive speakers. People selling the gear make you think you need expensive speakers.
    The Speakers in my set-up are all from a HTIB (Secrets out). And it doesn't sound like $#@! at all.

    Hope i'm helping.

    (HTIB - Home Theatre In a Box).

    One would guess at least one HDMI input and one HDMI output are needed. Even HTiB have a couple inputs and one output.

    Share a link of the system you are looking at.

    Reflex is missed indeed.

    You need to provide us with the link. Having only one HDMI port means the system is geared towards a TV connection only. You'd be better off looking at alternatives if you want to plug in external systems like the PS3.

    And MjW, don't you worry about Reflex. Good riddance is all you need to know.

    Thanks guys, I would share the link but I think it'll be a waste of time for you guys
    This is the BDV-E490 I need the 870 or higher which is an extra £130 or £3 if I get from the Amazon warehouse but I don't trust the quality it'll be in
    I can get a proper receiver for less, just need the speakers
    I've got 2 nice SS-9's that belong to my good old Sony MHC-AV70S (the last of its kind) but the center and surrounds are satellite speakers which will likely blow and don't think they'll handle the power like the S9's can
    And the sub needs to be louder and compatible too as I just hook up a $#@!ty 50watt off an old Sony HTS which makes no difference as my S9's over powers it lol
    I'm just gonna wait till after PS4 is out and buy the top model

    If you got an AVR you'd get HD sound on all Blu-ray movies and games that support it.

    You could then buy separate speakers to suit you or do what i done and use HTIB speakers.

    An HTIB will only do so much. I love movies and use my PS3 for Blu-ray more than gaming so i upgraded from an HTIB to a receiver.

    It's really up to your needs and affordability. An AVR would be better in the long run because as things get superseded you can just replace speakers.

    An AVR would help with everything you have at home though. X-box, DVR etc.

    I have 4 HDMI ports on mine i can plug things into. So i use it for my laptop and PS3.

    I hope that helps in some way.

    I can also direct you here.

    Can a HTiB plug into a AVR?
    Just thinking if it would be a good idea to get a HTiB for now then save up for a good AVR and use the speakers from it for the AVR?
    and I'll just gain a dedicated Smart BR player with HTIB functions
