It's all new!
Ok, so you've probably seen hundreds of posts exactly like this one.
I've decided to buy the Sony 55HX8 series television, I'm also thinking of getting the Onkyo TX-NR515 Trouble is, I don't know where to begin as to matching equipment so that's why I'm here. Does that amp even go with the television? Also, what speakers would go with that amp? I'm not after ear destroying volume as I live in a flat and would quite like to stay on (reasonably) good terms with the neighbours so a nice even crisp sound would be good.
I was thinking maybe those DALI Zensor 5 5.1's? But again.I don't know whether to get floor standers or not. It might be worth mentioning that my flat is an L shape but the seating area is basically 3.5m deep by 4.5m wide (my sofa will be along the long edge so my viewing distance is 3.5m give or take) Also, one side of the flat where the sofa is, is under the eaves so I can't mount anything to the left or right walls either side of the sofa.
I have a budget of around 2K for amp and speakers and blu-ray, although I'm happy to get the blu-ray at a later date if it means a better overall system in the end (I was planning on the Sony BDP-S790)
Also wondering if there are specific types of cables I need to get for the speakers and will they be different to the amp cable and TV cable? Or do I just get a HDMI from the television to the back of the amp etc? As you can probably see. I'm completely new to the world of home cinema, and quite possibly the 21st century........
I apologise in advance for the barrage of questions and thank anyone for their assistance
