Just bought an apt that has been wired to an inch of it's life and am now trying to decipher the set up. Have patience if I use the wrong terminology. My needs are simple: TV/movies/music in one room. I have a 5-year-old Samsung TV (may replace this), Samsung Blue Ray player, Peachtree iNova, Paradigm speakers. The TV and stereo have always sat in different rooms and I've never had a surround sound system. Place is being painted, but this is what I now have. The room has connections for front, left and right surround sound. Has two large speakers built into the walls (another two in the master bath ceiling). Also has sub woofer built in. I see no place to connect the subwoofer preamp cable anywhere near the actual speaker. I see no connection for a rear speaker at the back of the room.. The TV wall. Closer with front and right side speaker jack, power on left and component/ethernet on right. Why configure a wall like this? Close on component/ethernet. 1.5 metres to the right of FP - two etherent/one phone jacks Closer. The rack and closet. Power and preamp. Ethernet. More power. Racked pulled with ton of wires. Back of preamp with both ends of SW cable - there is no place to plug the free end. More ethernet/coaxial cables heading God knows where. Green-yellow wire? Closer. Built in modem and router. Large component heading to FP - no idea where all that coaxial is going. More ethernet and I guess phone cable. No idea what the green-yellow cable is. Random jack in another room - coaxial and ethernet? Coaxial and phone? 6 phone lines? So, how to configure what I have into this? What is the purpose of all the ethernet? Should I pull the component cables and fish HDMI cables through? Would love to move the chimney configuration to be tighter and therefore hidden. If I put all the components in the closet do I no need a RF remote to control through the door? Anyone know a NYC AV tech that can help me with all this? Thanks.
