You forgot the main reason I would wanna go to Japan, to get the white ps3! Looks sexy.There really isn't a need to get a Japanese PS3, unless you want your BC to support Japanese games (if you get an old model with BC). Also the firmware adds in your Edy feature, which is useless outside Japan.
Games are region free, Japan is on the same region as the US for blu-ray movies (thank god), and the PSU is 110/220v for all models in all countries.
I am finding that most cheap HDMI receivers are simply pass-through. They don't decode sound, at all, they just allow you to select between multiple video inputs.
Yeah the TV is off a bit I had to remove all the old cables and snake a HDMI
Pictures never want to turn out with the lighting in my basement, but here's my newest set-up. Thanks to Circuit City's 60% off sale, I picked up some Polk floor speakers and a center channel.
