Question about Samsung LN52A650A LCD TV

1 Answer

Older Onkyo Compatability with newer HDTV

I am strongly considering buying a Samsung LN52A650 flat screen LCD HDTV. I also believe, from what I have read that I will buy a Sony PlayStation3 as my blu-ray player.

We mostly watch TV, with sports and movies, listen to radio and CDs.
We have NEVER used this TV flocation for video games but might do a little of that now. We like good quality but are not fanatical about it.

I would like to know if I can effectively continue to use my old Onkyo TX-SV525 receiver? If not, could you make a recommendation of a replacement? Also what connection cables should I buy and am I missing anything important?

Hi rmccormick,
That Tv with the PS3 is a fantastic setup, The tv has one of the best picture quality ratings and the 4ms response time is great for fast action video and video games. The PS3 is a good decision for the Blu-Ray player, for the price you get a great game console along with the player, the drawback is that the PS3 runs alot hotter than a stand alone player, it will need to be well ventilated.
Your reciever will work but you won't be able to watch Blu-Ray in 1080p and that is the pupose of the PS3, you have to use the HDMI output on the PS3 to get 1080p and I doubt your reciever has HDMI, if it does your set if not I would buy a newer model with Dolby 5.1 and HDMI support, or if you want the best go with Dolby TrueHD.  
You will need HDMI cables.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star
