Hi guy's and girls new to all this so go easy. No nothing about av equipment so much jargon the back of these units look like an aeroplane's cockpit! After banging my head against a brick wall to decide what equip to buy i spoke to someone in London who installs cinema equip. He rang me back and advised me on the denon so i went with it. So i have a avc a11xv a dvd a1xv which i purchased from 7 oaks. In the demo he set both units up with standard cable and then with van den hul 1st ultimate the diff was shocking.So went with 1st ultimate. Once home got a local hifi shop to come round and set it up. He linked everything up with hdmi cables. I asked about van den hul cables reply don't need them hdmi just as good. Is this true. I could do with finding someone out there who knows my units in side out to help me set them up to get the best sound and picture out of them. Can anyone help. Don't you just hate newbies !!
