Hi all, first post so I hope I don't come off too terribly ignorent. Like the title says I want to put together a nice HT setup, however I can't just drop the kinda cash to put it all together at once . The good news is I have alot of components already so hopfully I can use what I have and start buying the rest piece by piece. So onto what I have; PS50C6500 Samsung 50" Plasma (New pride and joy, she is so beautiful ) DVD1920S Denon DVD Player AVR1906S Denon Reciever RTI4C Polk Audio B/Shelf speakers x2 PSW505 Polk Audio 12" Sub Xbox 360 (dunno how relevant this is but figured I'd throw it in) Now I pride myself in doing alot of research on products before I buy (hence my post here), but most the audio equipment above i bought about 5 and a half years ago when I was younger and stupider and just wanted to buy a awesome stereo. That said I'm still fairly certain it's decent stuff and I'm hoping I can fit it into a HT setup nicely (my main concerns are that it will be dated or not the best suited equipment for HT). What I'm looking for is a plan as to what pieces I should be looking to get and maybe some suggestions on what those pieces should be so that I don't end up wasting money and make sure I get a setup I can be proud of (my girlfriend and I watch ALOT of movies). So first thing I was thinking I would need was a Blu-ray player so that I can make the most of the TV (and the rest of the setup as it develops). I have heard good things about the Panasonic BD-65 and the Oppo 93. I realise there is quite a price gap and I'm still tossing up whether to get the BD-65 this weekend or save for a few weeks and get the Oppo. I guess selling the DVD player would also be a option to grab a little extra money (is there any point in owning a DVD player when you have a Blu-ray player?). Next thing would be to go for some surround sound. Was thinking I could move the 2 bookshelf speakers I currently have around the back and but 2x front and 1x centre speakers to make a nice 5.1 setup. I really like the idea of 7.1 sound, however I'm worried that it may take up too much space (as we don't have a theter room, just the lounge) and with 5.1 it should be fairly easy to move the rear speakers out of the way when they are not in use, that said, I could be...convinced...that 7.1 is the way to go . So that's where I'm at right now, I still have alot to learn (don't know what half the buttons on the reciever do ) but I want to get this setup underway and I can learn as I go. Please don't hesitate to say things like "that reciever is rubbish, you're gonna need something better if you wanna be serious", if that's the truth of the matter then I'd rather save for a while longer and do it right. Thanks for reading all, I know it turned into a bit of a essay but wanted to make sure I got everything in, also pretty excited about moving forward with this!
