Another 3D question

Im wondering how many of you all with 3D tvs are using a PS3 as their primary 3D blu ray player and if so how does it stack against stand alones? Im not worried about losing lossless as I dont have surround sound (will invest in a soundbar)

I know the ps3 constantly ranks in the top for BD players as its easy to upgrade, rarely ever fails on playing movies etc

thanks

Re: Another 3D question

I use my PS3 for playing everything, including 3D, and have been since it was first released. I've never had a problem with it playing anything, and since I got the slim model it's better than ever since it barely makes a sound. I think you knew the answer to this question when you posted this thread.

For what the PS3 can do and for the price you pay, it's a great machine. From playing games to films, it's does so much so well.

But the Oppo is the king among Blu ray players.

You really should consider surround sound. It's so much better than a sound bar.

+1. Can't beat it for what it offers vs cost.

You have to install a full surround sound system and then invite your neighbors over for movie nights. Everybody wins.

Re: Another 3D question

so the new slim PS3s are a lot quieter? my PS3 (not one of the really old ones but older than the slims) kicks the fans into high gear all the time and its annoying even from across the room

Re: Another 3D question

^^ Yes. Before the slim there was the original design, the "fat" one. If you don't have the slim, then you have the fat boy, as I do. I did end up buying the slim to replace the fat boy, and ever since then, it runs nice and quiet. I have heard the fan kick on once when I was playing a game, but for the movies, it hasn't gone on once.

I had surround sound when I lived in apartments, even ones not on the ground floor. I would say as long as you don't have a monster subwoofer, you should be fine.

Re: Another 3D question

Actually, a monster subwoofer is probably better, at least, if it is tuned correctly. It's the little boomy crap ones that will go right through walls and torment others.

Depending on what I'm watching, my HSU Research subwoofer can be felt on my back patio and rattles the dishes in my kitchen. I wouldn't want to live below that.

Re: Another 3D question

Well, yeah, if you have it loud. They'll also be able to hear the higher frequencies, perhaps.

But if it is tuned properly, you should still be able to hear/feel that kind of sub in the 70db area, which is only conversation loudness. With an in-the-box sub, you won't hear anything turned down far enough to be quiet for the next room, because it will be hard to tune it well enough.

Re: Another 3D question
