    Just picked up a 3802, set of kef Q5's for fronts, Q1's for rears and Q9c for center to go with dvd, sat and video. My question is what is the best way to connect all the system up? My tv has 3 scarts (2 RGB). Is it best to just have the audio going through the amp and run scarts straight to tv or shall i run scart-svid,2 phono from each of the video and sat to the amp, coax,2 phono from dvd to amp and then a svid-scart from amp to the tv???

    Thanks a confused Baggy69

    scart straight to the tv using rgb where applicable

    phono to the amp where there's no digital output available

    yep, electrical co-ax from dvd to amp preferably, if not then digital optical to 3802, set the dvd player to bitstream audio output.
    you could use phonos also between dvdplayer and 3802 if you plan to use it for CD playback, then set dvd player to analogue output when playing CDs.

    then buy another Q9c for 6.1 ;)
