    Hey guys, new to all things AV so be nice :p

    I currently have a Sony KV21LS30 Nicam 4:3 television and a Sony NS405 DVD player.

    The TV only has left/right phono out, and the DVD player has digital out.

    In what way do the Mission speakers connect to my kit; do I need to buy a receiver?

    Cheers,

    Cheers Shirker, so I connect the TV to the receiver using hq stereo interconnects (QED).

    How is the standard phono/stereo output like for sound quality?

    And what is the best way to connect the DVD to the receiver? Using the digital output, or again using the standard stereo/phone out?

    Cheers,

    Hi

    You would connect the TV to the amp/receiver as you say, via analogue phono cables. Quality of sound will depend on the TV, my JVC is crap so I don´t use them.

    To connect the dvd to the amp/receiver, use either a digital optical cable or digital coaxial cable. You´ll then have Dolby Digital/DTS 5.1 sound (assuming the amp has both decoders). Connecting via the analogue phonos will only give you stereo and/or Pro-Logic/Pro-Logic 2 sound (depending on amp).

    cheers:)
