    Hi
    I am having difficulty connecting this up to the equipment i have.
    The jvc home cinema system i own has a one box dvd player/reciever.It has a coaxial connection to connect the box to the subwoofer.The sub then has cable connections for each of the 5 speakers.
    Now,the canton sub is different and looking at the instructions that came with it suggests that some of the speakers should be connected directly to a reciever and some to the sub.My reciever does not have these connections.I assume i have no choice but to upgrade by buying a new reciever and seperate dvd player.But i thought i would check here first to see if there is a cheaper alternative.
    thanks
    Bob

    "all-in-one" system rarely allow you to upgrade the speakers and keep the rest of the system get an AV AMP and DVD player (£150ish for cheapest)

    Hi myszka,

    I've just bought a CD1 system and no, you wont be able to do what you are asking. The JVC system uses an amp in it's sub enclosure to drive the 5 speakers and the sub. The Canton sub enclosure only has an amp to drive the sub. As HD says, All in one home cinema are a nightmare to upgrade.

    One suggestion I can give is to try and get hold of a sub from the Mission FS1 Sub/sat package. This has connections to the speakers from the sub box although I'm not sure what the connection you would need from the JVC receiver.

    Other than that, a new AV receiver.

    Richie.

    I know guys :thumbsdow
    Only have £300 so was thinking of the pioneer 575 and either a Pioneer amp from RS or Superfi or the Sony 795.Or a denon 1905.Has to be a musical reciver/amp though.This will be main system after my young son and his pals destroyed the tweeters on my Royd Minstrels.
    I will upgrade the speakers incrementally to cd100,s as time and money allow.
    cheers

    The Denons have had quite a good review of late. I have a 1601 (Dinasaur in comparison) and a friend has a 3803 (I think). I've hammered mine by hooking it up to my decks and running 2 sets of floor standers off them for parties a couple of times. I've got it hooked up to the Canton CD1 package and it sounds sweet even at low volumes.

    The 575 seems to be a good choice. I was thinking of this but I'm looking for a DVD player that upscales for my LCD.

    Richie.
