Hello! I just wanted to intoduce myself, I just joined the board and I'm currently setting up my home theater and thought this seemed like a good place to start! I purchased a used Harman/Kardon AVR 310 off eBay It's hooked up to 2 Harman/Kardon HKB6 speakers I also have the HKC center channel and HKB4s for the surounds All the speakers were purchased new from Harman Direct also on eBay I haven't hooked up the surrounds or the center because I still need to get mounting brackets for the surround speakers. Is there any advantage to hooking up the center without the surrounds? or will it just sound funny? Most of my video equipment isn't hooked up at the moment because I have been a little short on cash lately and the cables are all pretty pricey, also I have an older TV which I plan to replace in the next couple of weeks and I want to be sure that I don't need to replace what I've just bought. I currently have a Motorola Digital cable box, Sony DVD player (about 5 years old), basic Sharp VCR (I don't watch too many VHS movies), a PS2 and a GameCube. any advice on hooking these things up would be greatly appreciated as I'm very new to all of this. The only thing hooked up to my system now is an Apple AirPort Express and an iPod, and those sound great! Thanks for all your help and I look forward to getting to know all of you!
