Hi Guys - I just ordered a HK AVR 525 and a Pioneer 563a. I'm pumped! I'm also feeling a little overwhelmed with all the stuff that I need to do to set these things up. My last HT was set up by a custom installer - this one I'm going solo .... So what cables and accessories do I need to pick up?? Should I invest in a SPL meter from Radio Shack? I'm not exactly sure how it works but that's another thread ... Cables - I - for now - don't think cables can affect a system. At least not a budget system like mine. If I ever spend 20 g's on my HT I might consider expensive cables. For now, I am going to stick with Radio shack Gold cables. This is a list of what I *think* I need. What I don't know is what their exact names are and that's where I need your help so I know what to ask for at Radio Shack 1. S Video Cable x 2 - one from DVD player to receiver, one from receiver to TV. 2. Subwoofer cabble - allready purchased 3. Speaker wire - allready purchased 4. Cable from DVD player to receiver for DD/DTS - What is this called??? 5. 6 analog cables from DVD player to receiver - what is this called and what exactly do I ask for??? That's all I think. Am I missing anything? Please make sure to give me the exact names for the cables so that I don't look totally stupid at the store.
