For music lovers with a PS3 and a sub-sat system.

Attention music lovers!

I found out a little something the other day when I was farting around with my PS3 and the "Pure Direct" function on my Yamaha receiver (HTR-6180B/RXV-863).

Normally when you go to "pure direct" mode when you're using a sub-sat set-up, you of course lose the sub, and therefore most of your bass. However, I have come across something with the PS3 that actually makes me very happy. If you're listening to a CD and you put your receiver into "pure direct," the sub stays on and in effect. Nice! I've tried this with the new BDP-S350, the HD-A30, and a few other CD/DVD players, and no dice. If you go to "pure direct," you lose the sub and are left with the front right and left speakers only. Key thing, perhaps, is that I am connected to the receiver via HDMI. I haven't tried this with an optical cable; nor have I done this by using a old-fashioned hook-up via the speaker terminals on the back of the sub. I am using HDMI and an LFE output to the sub via RCA cable.

In case some of you haven't tried it, give it a shot. Let me know how it works out for you.
