Question Denon 3808 & PS3

Okay guys I will be hooking up the Denon tomorrow to the PS3 and was hoping to get some info on what settings to use on the PS3 for optimal sound and what formats will I be able to utilize with the new receivers handshake to the PS3? I will be going HDMI all the way.

I'm not too familiar with that receiver, but with my Pioneer receiver and PS3 I have the PS3 set to LPCM for audio via HDMI and it sounds amazing!

The 3803 does not have an HDMI input, and the PS3 does not have 5.1 analog outputs. Unfortunately, this means that you'll never get full uncompressed PCM or lossless TrueHD quality from your Blu-ray discs. Instead, you're limited to standard Dolby Digital or DTS quality over the Toslink optical connection.

Inside the PS3, you should set the S/PDIF output for "Bitstream". When playing a disc, you should always select the Dolby or DTS sound option when available (PCM will be downgraded to basic stereo if you choose that option).

If the model number is actually 3808 then it does support HDMI. The 3808 is one of the new receivers that Denon just announced. Didnt know they were out yet.

For audio setup, set the PS3 to lpcm in order to get lossless audio.
