    any recommendations as to what should be the best interconnect to get first to make the biggest difference (if any)

    by the way it's a Yamaha RX-V350 (old but best i can get at the moment)

    Good old av50 pack and at a superb price.:D and nice toshiba.

    Connect the dvd player to the tv with a RGB only scart (means you will get NO sound from the dvd except through the amp) (approx £30) For example:

    http://www.hificables.co.uk/Product...D/2388/v/4035eff3-b8aa-46ea-82de-22ed0cc4a41d
    http://www.hificables.co.uk/Product...D/2388/v/4035eff3-b8aa-46ea-82de-22ed0cc4a41d

    or componant if you tv has them. EG:
    http://www.hificables.co.uk/Product...D/2384/v/4035eff3-b8aa-46ea-82de-22ed0cc4a41d

    Then use digital coaxial cables to connect the dvd to the amp and analogue cables when listening to cd's. You could also look to gettting better speaker cables or the CHEAP option is to use CAT 5e network cables.
    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/prod...2hvd19wcm9kdWN0X292ZXJ2aWV3&product_uid=16461

    Just cut the ends off and use the bundles of cables and trim to sizethen use as audio cables. Dirt cheap but should be better than the standard cheap cable supplied.

    The speakers that come with it are wired, so i don't know if that's an option unless the yamaha takes banana plugs aswell?
