    I'm new to all this and can't afford to launch into home cinema just yet. I've bought a phono to phono cable to connect my TV system to my music centre mainly for viewing films. Presumably the best route is to use the audio out on the TV. The reason I ask this is because my DVD player, my VCR and cable box all have phono audio out facilities. Are any of these better than others?

    In an ideal world you would connect the individual boxes to the amp directly.
    However you should not notice much of a difference by connecting the one set of phono cables from the TV to your amp.

    Go straight from your DVD player to the stereo.

    I would use audio outs on TV there should be no degradation in sound quality and will allow for stereo from all sources.
