Hi all, Been cruisin around for a few days now but just registered a while ago. I am not real familiar with home theater...yet. I have been looking at terms and hardware and on and on and on.... Lordy, am I gonna need you guys and gals before this is over! I have what I think is a "decent" stereo system Denon POA 2400 Amp Denon PRE 1100 Preamp Sony CDP-CE272 CD deck Onkyo TA 201 Cassette deck MCS 6601 Turntable Denon TU 450 Tuner Infinity Kappa 7 speakers Bose AM-5 speakers OK, I dig two channel music, but I want to try video too. What I'd like to know first is- is there any of this stuff that can cross over to the HT aspect? No biggie if not. I can keep it as the "session" audio and start over with HT. So, I need some hardware. At this point I watch very few movies, probably because it's no big thrill to see a flick on an old Sears TV. We do watch a fair amount of regular TV, including satellite feeds. I would like to go about 36" HD ready (I think I like the Sony wega)but my preferences end there. I DON'T want distorted pictures, and I DON'T want to have to have a degree to run the system. I want to do surround sound too. Not the best in the world, but adequate. I have a 12'X 24' very dark room. It will become the "entertainment center". So my question is this- How do I keep from getting more confused? I'm hoping it is with you all. Anyway, blast away at will, remembering that I'm not made of money! Thanks for all the help way in advance. OH yeah, I build home entertainment built-in furnature for a second living, so I can package whatever we find. EDIT- I just learned that surround sound is an old term. We want 5.1 audio don't we?! Disregard that part of the post. Sorry.
