    I am connecting a tv, dvd player, dts amp and dts surround speaker system.

    I am happy enough with buying the relevant speaker cable but what other cables do I need?

    My Canton speaker manual says the active subwoofer needs a cinch cable. What is that? Is that on top of connecting the amp to subwoofer by two phono plugs?

    Basically I bought the amp and speakers separately and this is my first home cinema setup. The no. of connections on the back of the amp (TEac ag10) are bewildering! I would like to use best quality connections. I notice the amp has several video connectors - do they need to be used? I figured it was only needed for audio.

    Thanks - great link but I don't know exactly what cables I need to order from them.

    Do I essentially only need a digital coaxial or toslink cable to hear my dvds in all their dolby digital or dts grandeur?
