Default PS3/HDMI question

I've decided to go with a PS3 for my BluRay player. My current receiver does not have hdmi, so an upgrade will be necessary. My question is this: Will I need to get one of the new Onkyos to enjoy the uncompressed audio streams (Dolby TrueHD; DTS-HD) over hdmi? Or will any hdmi receiver do the trick?

Thanx in advance.

Any HDMI receiver that processes audio thru HDMI will do the trick. Beware of the ones that only pass video and don't get any sound thru HDMI!

dajohn29,

Thank you for your reply! What's a good hdmi receiver under $300?

Edit: I just found this over at amazon: Onkyo TX-SR505 Opinions?
