I hope this was catchy enough to get a few of you experts in her because I've got some hard decisions to make and I do not as yet have enough information. Here goes. My friend had me over some time ago, and we watch Jurasic Park on his Home Theater System. It was great! but as I am beginning my foray into Home Theater, I spend most of the time watching cable and old movies, and I will watch DVD only occasionally. I have a 36 inch Mitsubishi from 1995, and it has a S-video connection and two external audio inputs and outputs. Now, if I purchase the onkyo 595, and the Sony 670D DVD changer, and it is all connected to a 5.1 channel Ascend Acoustics speaker surround sound package, will I get great sound from my DVD and not so great a picture because it is not a HDTV? Also, when I watch Jurasic Park over the cable, do they send over the 5.1 sound and only those so equipped can pick it up, or is the sound coming through cable coded differently that that from the DVD. Basicly, can I get a more realistic sound coming from my old TV system if I add these components?
