I just want to say thank you to everybody at the HomeTheaterForum. You guys have helped me pick out my first home theater system, which is... Fluance SX-HTB Dayton 10" Sub Harman-Kardon AVR-225 Receiver 100' x 2 of Sound King 12 ga wire from partsexpress I'm feeling pretty good about it, and I'm glad I convinced my parents to go this way rather than a crappy HTiB, which was my first option. I used UPS ground shipping, so it should be here in about a week. When I get it all set up and broken in, I'll post again. Until then, a couple questions... 1. Do I need banana plugs or do I just run the wire? 2. What subwoofer cable should I use? I read just get a coax cable from Radioshack with two F->M converters on the ends. That alright? 3.Which DVD should I test it out with? LOTR:TTT, Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Wars Ep 1 or 2, The Matrix, something else?!? I can't wait! P.S. Somebody tell me I bought well so I don't go second guessing myself. Don't lie though.
