    I am doing my first HT setup project.
    I have a onkyo TXR600 receiver.
    energy take 5.2 speaker and subwoofer package(will get this in a week's time)
    sony DVD player(with progressive scan)
    sony 32'' FD trinitron wega tv
    Panasonic VCR(new model)
    dish network satellite receiver
    all of these are recently purchased equipments.
    I have a wall unit in which i will keep all of these.as far as speakers go, my home is prewired for 2 front and 2 rear speakers and so i dont need to do any wiring.
    please advise
    thanks

    To get going you will probably need the following:

    -Subwoofer cable: coaxial w/RCA connectors
    -Component video cable to connect the DVD player to the TV
    -Fiber optic audio interconnect from DVD to Receiver and/or
    coaxial audio from DVD to Receiver
    -4 coaxial audio interconnects with RCA plugs for VCR to Receiver and Satellite receiver to Sony Receiver
    -2 coaxial video interconnects for Satellite receiver to TV

    There's lots to choose from out there. BTW, how are you going to connect your center channel speaker?
    Have fun!

    Thanks wayne & Tim
    "Speaker wires the correct length for the five main speakers."
    I will not need speaker wires except for center speaker as home is prewired on ceiling for 2 front and 2 rear speakers.
    what kind of wire i need to buy for center speakers?please see starting post for details of HT components.
    " If the sub is powered, a signal cable with RCAs on both ends. "
    Subwoofer cable: coaxial w/RCA connectors , should be fine i think
    -Component video cable to connect the DVD player to the TV
    -Fiber optic audio interconnect from DVD to Receiver
    -S-video cable for panasonic new vcr (SVHS)
    now Tim,
    why would i need
    "4 coaxial audio interconnects with RCA plugs for VCR to Receiver and Satellite receiver to Sony Receiver
    -2 coaxial video interconnects for Satellite receiver to TV
    "
    i am confused.
