    Hi, I'm somewhat new to the home theatre world. I was wondering if it is best to buy all the equipment (receiver or amp/preamp, blu-ray player) from the same company or is it better to buy from different companies. For example, I've heard Denon makes an excellent receiver and sony makes an excellent blu-ray player. From a sound and video quality perspective, is there an advantage to buying seperate companies? From a functional perspective, is buying from the same company a better idea? Also, is there a link that compares/reviews receiver brands (not sure if I should get Denon or Pioneer)? I could also spend a bit more to get a seperate amp and preamp, but does it sound and/or look any better? Thanks! Michael

    I don't think I have 2 pieces of equipment that have the same name on them. Amps and pre-amps will only benefit you if you are going pretty expensive on the speakers. What are you planning on using?
