Confused about receivers & set up
I'm tired of budget "home cinema" kits which can't play a decent sound range, so I've been advised to get an amplifier to hook everything into: TV, PS3, and CD/DVD player.
I spent a few days researching amplifiers and was literally about to buy a Yamaha AS500 and Wharfdale Diamond 10.1 speakers when I suddenly realised I'm probably looking supposed to be looking for "AV receivers".
I'm now looking at the Onkyo TXNR609 and figure I'll need the diamond speakers as well.
However, is this all I'd need? Not quite sure, or what extra cables I'll be needing as well.
Also - there's no possibility of sync issues playing DVD's through an amp like the Onkyo, is there?
Anyway, looking to take my first steps into upgrading into an entry level real sound system for the home, but just need a little guidance.
Any helpful replies much appreciated.
