Ps3 Hdmi Connection Only?

In response to the Bose conversation, before you spend the $3000 I'd suggest taking a look here first. http://www.intellexual.net/bose.html. I cannot say it is an unbiased look at the Bose Speaker systems but it is very well thought out and should be taken into consideration before purchasing bose products. Especially if you are an audiophile.
I'm sorry for adding to the off topic track of this thread but I'd hate to see someone spend $3000 and possibly be unhappy.

The HD-pack has component and optical out. Had mine since before the Xbox even came out.

I also have some nice 4' tall speakers with Rubber cones (no I did not buy the metal or square cones), and the entire surround setup with preamp is a much better buy, is cheaper, and sounds remarkably better than those Bose things.
I use my Bose system to play surround-sound computer games, and I deal with that disheartening mess of wires that is the signature of Bose product quality. The TRUE surround sound system with 4' floor-standing speakers is best for your home audio that'll rock the house.
And, to reiterate, Blu-Ray movies will definitely require a secure connection, like HDMI, to view their HD content. But that's only the movies.

About the Bose...
Bose offers simple systems with decent sound.Women love 'em!Most people think
they're great just like all Sony products.I feel that they are far over rated!$$$
Typically integrated systems with small satellite speakers.
But, if you don't mind larger wooden speakers,
then buy some Polk Audio speakers.
For $3000 you could get a Mid level speaker package
and a $500-$700 Yamaha reciever.Most people don't not need
a $1000 reciever.$5-700 will get a good quality reciever with
out paying for overpriced technologies.Now if you are rich and want the best
or are a true enthusiast, then go right ahead ans spend the money.
HTB's btw are always limited in connections and have crappy plastic speakers
in them!Thats why they suck.For games they're good/ok but they
don't offer the full range sound that a good wooden speaker can output!

and to furthur hijack my own thread....
since Home theatre concerns were originally why I posted, I will throw in my 2 cents on the bose topic
IMO all home theatre in a box systems should stay that way, in the box... especially bose, sure they sound nice but, for that kind of money you can get something that has a lot more flexibilty, larger variety of inputs and outputs, and video up conversion etc.. so if you decide to get a HDTV, hook up all your gaming systems, computer whatever, you dont have to get a new receiver as well. I think you should take the $3,000 buy a kick ass receiver and a really nice set of speakers, you dont want to spend that kind of money and not get everything you want.
