Need all new, 100% fresh set of cables for all equipment


Second Unit

Well, the JVC will be here Monday. Hoping you can help me on this. I think I am going to need some new cables to hook stuff up for best performance.

The TV is the JVD HD-52G787. The DVD player will be the Panasonic DVDS52K

And my A/V receiver is the Marantz SR5600

My video source is a dual receiver DVR from Dish Network (non-HD, though I probably should upgrade to an HD one)

My CD player is a Marantz CC4300

I have two goals. Reduce the number of wires. I have an absolute jungle behind the TV stand. And get the best performance out of the equipment.

Obviously I am going to want HDMI to connect the DVD to the TV I assume. But also likely an Optical cable to connect the CD player to the receiver. What about from the TV to the receiver, and/or DVD to the receiver. And the Dish Network box to the TV?

Lets assume I do not own a single cable at this point and nothing is hooked up. I am going to the store. What do I need to come home with to hook all this up and get optimum performance with the minimum number of wires running all over the place? I know nothing about cables and connections. Know nothing about particular brands. Just looking to get what I need at a resonable (cheap) price.

Will likely purchase from or (unless another may be better).

So what does my shopping list look like?

Hi Brian - here is your shopping list:

1. DVR -> TV, Component
2. DVR -> Receiver, Optical Audio or Digital Coax
3. DVD Player -> TV, HDMI
4. DVD Player -> Receiver, Optical Audio or Digital Coax
5. CD Player -> Receiver, Optical Audio or Digital Coax
6. Receiver -> TV, Component

Both or are excellent choices for quality cabling. Enjoy!
