    Hi.
    I Have A Panasonic Sc-dt110 Home Cinema 5.1 Dvd Player And I Am In The Process Of Creating A Home Theatre. Unfortunately The Speakers Aren't Much To Look At So Is It Possible To Buy A Nice 5.1 Set And Change Them. Do I Have To Look For Ohms And Impediance And All That Stuff Or Can I Just Buy Anything And Change Them Over To Something That Would Look Nice In The Room..
    Any Advice Would Be A Help

    Yes, you need to check the impedance of the speakers. The rule is simple: you can connect speakers with a HIGHER rating than the amp says and you'll be fine, albeit slightly less loud at any given volme setting. Unless you know what you're doing NEVER connect speakers with a lower impedance.

    Thus, if your amp wants, say, 8 ohm speakers you can safely connect 16 ohm speaker but not 4 ohm ones.

    Obviously the ideal is go match exactly, ie. 8 into 8, and most speaker systems are in fact 8 or 16 in my (albeit limited) experience.
