Long time lurker first time poster. I have a question as I was trying to find the information by myself online but I never got the answer I fully wanted.
Currently I have an older HTIB system Onkyo HT-S330 which I will be getting rid off as after 2 years it is starting to fail and Blu Rays are being played through my fat launch day PS3.
Now I want to buy a standalone blu ray player and just use the PS3 strictly for games.
I am looking at buying the Panasonic DMP BDT500.
My question is, since the blu ray player can decode all the high end codecs and can hook up my current speakers, will it be worth it to also buy a new A/V Reciever or will that just be a waste of money?
I eventually plan on buying new speakers (Klipsch series just not sure which series yet)
For recievers I was looking at the Pioneer VSX-1122-K.
Is it a good idea to get the BR player and the reciever or should I just stick with the BR Player to process audio and video?
