    As mentioned...I thought I wanted introduce myself since I am new to the boards here and think it is a good idea for new members to do so. Excellent information here, probably the best HT/AV forums I have found on the internet. I have been lurking for a few months trying to educate myself in HT before just going out and buying a system...So Xmas rolls around the my better half goes and buys me a Denon AVR-1803 receiver for Xmas...not knowing that she has managed to create a monster with this one unit. [​IMG]
    In any event...I have an addiction to VW's, automotive detailing my car and computers...now that this receiver has entered the household...I think I am in big trouble, as is my better half. Heh heh. So far we have pretty recent equipment that all is compatible with the Denon and I am on a cable and wire hunt this week to get that out of the way before the expensive stuff starts rolling in. A center channel first, then on to front towers...

    Thanks guys! Of all the other boards I belong to...This is probably the most professional and no BS going on here. I am sure I am going to have a lot of questions in the future as I start shopping for my HT system. Tonight/tomorrow...I am buying speaker cables for my fronts, and some composite cables for the reciver and DVD player, including optical cables for the DVD and PS2 as well. For the DBS, I am going to but a Monster Video 2 RCA component set as well.
    I don't think I am going to leave the house anymore...unless the cars need cleaning. [​IMG]

    It is already too late. I warned her.."You've created a new monster."

    She just shook her head saying, "What have I done?"

    Good thing for me...she is away on business till Friday. Heh heh!! Woot!

    Looking for cables? [​IMG]
    http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...hreadid=118133
    Acoustic Research, not as famous (or expensive) as Monster Cable but they perform the same. If you're not on a tight budget bettercables.com has some great choices.
    But enough tech talk, that's a whole other forum. :b So you're interested in HT, cars, and computers. I think we may have room for ya. Actually I should say you shoulda came here sooner! [​IMG] Welcome!

    Welcome, Doug.

    Have fun with the set-up; remember, the journey is as much fun as the destination.

    (by the way, I second the Acoustic Research cables remark)

    Welcome Doug, and leave all hope behind, I've been here nearly 3 years [who yelped?] and I only joined to find out if George Lucas's little space saga was popping out on digital discs anytime soon, and have been a prisoner here ever since...help me! [​IMG]
    A word of warning, followers of the unspeakable Cthulhu have been know to lurk in the darkest recesses of the HTF.. *cough*cough* ...and stay off the moors...

    Welcome to the HTF Doug. You will learn more that you realize here about the sick hobby of home theater! :O) You'll make a few friends also.

    --Slaps "Kick me, I'm a newbie" sticker on Doug's back.--

    Ah, just kidding, welcome! And remember, NO OAR = NO SALE!
