I'm beginning to put together a HT system. So far, I've got my Axiom speakers (yay!) and a Denon 2808 receiver, which I understand has HDMI 1.3a capability.
On to the next purchase: A TV and BD player. My question is, am I missing out on something if I get a TV that doesn't have HDMI 1.3A, and if so, what?
Same question applies for the Blu-ray player. I've been somewhat informed from the other thread about which BD player to buy, and I think for my purposes I'd be happy with a PS3 that decodes the HD audio formats internally (except for dts-ma) and can output a multichannel PCM stream which the Denon can handle.
My goal, if possible, is to spend $1500 on a TV instead of $2500, if the cheaper one will suffice. But if I am missing out on something like "deep colour" because the denon can provide that and the TV can't, (or lip-syncing, etc.) then maybe I should bite the bullet and get a newer model that I know is 1.3a compliant.
Thanks for the feedback in advance.
