Yes, with an HDMI 1.1 receiver, you'll need to have the player do the decoding of lossless sound tracks.

Do you have one of the original 'fat' ps3 or do you have a later slim. The reason is that the initial ps3 have an older chip that will not bitstream the losless codecs while the newer ones (PS3) do have that capability as the chip was changed.

I don't understand that question but with a HDMI capable receiver and your ps3 you have the choice to let the ps3 decode the audio or the recevier - audio quality wise it makes no difference.

There's DTS and DTS-HD Master Audio. If you want the high res lossless audio, you need a processor that can decode Master Audio. But, regular DTS is plenty good, especially with the high bitrates used on Blu-ray. So, a processor that can decode regular DTS will give you excellent audio.

Meanwhile, if your 3090 has multichannel analog inputs, you can get a player with MCH analog outputs. The player would do the decoding and analog conversion. that would be a considerably cheaper route than buying a new processor.
