Hey everybody. I was thinking of putting together a "simple" surround sound home theater with as few of parts as possible and I need some help. I don't really know what I should buy. I've got the basic components and was wondering if ya'll could tell me how I could put them together, without having to buy some "all-in-one" system. I have a Panasonic CD Stereo Sound System that puts out some great sound and it came with extra satellite speakers for the full 5.1 surround sound experience. I'm guessing these are really included so you can hook the system up to a DVD player and have 5.1 Sourround. It enables my CDs to play in surround, but I don't think the speakers are being used to their potential in this way. My Stereo System (Panasonic model number SC-AK66) includes instructions on how to hook up a DVD player with 5.1. At the moment, my DVD player is a Playstation 2. Really all I want to do is see if I can get my PS2 to hook up to my Stereo so I can have 5.1 Surround on the DVDs and in gameplay. Is this possible with what I have, or would an Audio Receiver be necessary? ( Such as to hook the PS2 up to, and from the Receiver on into my stereo system? ) Sorry if this post seems to ramble, but I was having trouble trying to figure out how to explain it. Thanks in advance!
