Hello,

Just wondering what kind of cables to use for setting up the oppo 83 blu-ray using the 7.1 analog jacks.

I was going to use 2 sets of component cables and 1 pair of rca jacks, would that work?

thanks

i have tried searching google and have not really had any luck.

Yes, that should work just fine.
I use two sets of component cables, from my Denon 2200 to my receiver, for scad and dvd-a, for 5.1 setup.

Samsung HL61A750 (LED DLP)            Onkyo TX-SR805
Oppo BDP-83 Blu ray                                  Polk Audio LSi9
Polk Audio LSiC                                  Sony SS-MB100H
SVS PC12-NSD (Sub)                       ...

thanks.. have the cables all good to go.... one question though,

Do i need to hook up any other cables to get 5.1 sound, like the optic cable i was using?  or do the 7.1 take care of all that?

The 7.1 cables should take care of that, but you may want to hook up an optical cable and try, when watching a regular dvd, to see which sounds best.

Using the 7.1 analog cables, the Oppo player will perform the Dolby Digital and DTS decoding. If you connect an optical cable and switch to that input, your receiver will be performing the decoding. Depending on your receiver, you may have more options for adjusting the sound using the optical input versus the multi-channel analog inputs for SD-DVD playback. As Ed said, it wouldn't hurt to try it both ways to see which you prefer. .
