first of all you don't need "lossless audio decoding" b/c the ps3 unpacks the formats for you. It cannot bitstream anyways, so the receiver doesn't need it. Just a clarification. B/c it'll be hard to find a modern receiver that does NOT come with them anyhoo.
Of all the components you list, by far the most important one is unlisted. Funny how that is. speakers. otherwise, don't know man. hf and gl.
I'm looking for a new receiver and I really like theses three receivers, which one would you recommend. Pre-outs are not important to me because I don't have an external amp and don't plan on getting one. If there are any other good 7.1 receivers with lossless audio decoding, at least 3 HDMI, upscaling to 1080 feel free to suggest those.
I will be using this with a sony KDLxbr4 tv, ps3, HD cable box, N64.
