Hello, I'm new to posting on these boards but I registered almost a year ago. Around that time I was in the proccess of upgrading my Best Buy theater to something of higher quality. Here is what my setup consisted of. Old Setup --------- Receiver: Sony STR-DE945 Mains: 15" Pioneer CS-G403 (Old and crappy.) Center: JBL N-Center Rears: JBL N-24's Sub: None at the time. TV: 25" Sharp DVD Player: Sony DVP-S360 DVD Player CD Player: Sony CDP-CX53 Cables: Basic Previous Setup -------------- Receiver: Onkyo TX-DS797 Mains: Paradigm Mini Monitor Center: Paradigm CC-170 Rears: Paradigm ADP-170 Sub: Cerwin Vega LW-15 TV: Sony Wega KV-24FV12 24" DVD Player: Panasonic RP56 CD Player: Sony CDP-CX53 Cables: Monster Cable New Setup ------------- Receiver: Denon AVR-4802 (Purchased) Mains: B&W DM602 S3 (Purchased) Center: B&W LCR60 S3 (Purchased) Rears: B&W DM600 S3 (Purchasing this Friday.) Sub: SVS 16-46PCi Subwoofer (Puchasing end of September.) TV: Upgrading but not sure as to what yet. Recommedations? DVD Player: Denon DVD-2900 (Purchasing in the months to come.) CD Player: Sony CDP-CX53 (95% Movies/5% Music. No need to upgrade.) Cables: ????? Not sure what to get. From looking at my progression from about 3 years ago and to where I'm heading I'd like to think I've come along way. Many thanks to these boards for showing me the way. My dream of having a great home theater is starting to come true. I came to these boards right after I bought the Onkyo receiver along with Monster Cable for my interconnections. I soon learned shortly after that I got ripped on the overpriced cables and that I could have done better for the money on the receiver. To say the least I was alittle bummed out. Luckily I was about to purchase speakers and you folks pointed me to some quality brands and I ended up with Paradigm speakers all around. All the other equipment I have was on the upgrade list but I never got around to it. Now I'm in full force and these will be upgraded for sure. The DVD player is ok but with all the high quality gear I have now or plan to buy it just doesn't fit well anymore. Now I'm babbling, Well to get to the point I bought all my gear from one shop and they've been good with cutting me deals on all of it. They sell some high quality Pheonix Gold interconnections for alot cheaper than what Monster charges. It looks to be of higher quality too. Plus they said they would cut me a deal. So my question is should I upgrade all the cables to Pheonix Gold or stick with the Monster I have now? I told them I was going to get all my cables from Bettercables.com and it would run about $1000 but they said that was too much money for the kind of setup I'm running.
