After getting square eyes on the net I've finally decided enough was enough have now ordered my 507 with Denon 2307 and 1930 with B&W M1s and a velodyne sub (after a great demo). Having finished patting myself on the back, my ignorance around interconnects has`started to dawn on me. While the retailer has been helpful, I think hes confusing me with someone who understands what he is saying. My plan is to run everything through the amp with just one HDMI to the screen (4m away). I want to keep cabling between screen and amp to a minimum as it will need burying in the wall. What I still cant get my head round is a decent plan for the interconnects for the rest of the kit. I understand that the connection between DVD and amp should be Optical or digital co-axil, but which is best and why not HDMI. Then what about the Sky+ box. Is it best to use HDMI. If not then what. The retailer said I need a RGB /component (£90) but for what I'm still not clear. Any ideas or advice please. The only other thing I want to ensure is in due course I can attach a decent game console. Whats the best connection for this. Equally, to play some of the old family vidoes ( while i done intend putting a video in the cabinet)as and when we want to watch one is it best to simple use a scart between the video and amp. Sorry for blathering on but I cant help it and probably wont be able to shut up till I understand this. Seasons Regards. Lanski.
