Yamaha A2010 Receiver, Q Acoustics Q7000`s, What cable to use.

Hi, i just recently bought a Yamaha A2010 (£850 Delivered with three year warranty new) and some Q Acoustics Q7000 speakers to go with my Panasonic 50" V20 TV.  Looking for some decent speaker cables to hook it up with, and some HDMI`s to connect my Panasonic BDT220 Blu Ray player and Virgin TIVO box.  Need 6-7 meters for front and center and 20 meters for rears, and also a subwoofer cable.

Also what are your thoughts on the system and how will it perform, i currently have an all in one panasonic 5.1 blu ray system but wanted something better and bought after reading some reviews without a demo (i dont have access to any show rooms near my home).

Feedback much appreciated.

Hi barry platford

Nice one Smile

I'll suggest standard 79 strand or at a push 500 strand OFC speaker cables as i feel these will be more then good enough for your amp and speakers. Fwiw, i use/used these standard speaker cables with AV amplification such as the Aventage RX-A2010, RX-A3010, Plinius Odean, Chord Electronics SPM3005, Yamaha DSP-Z11, etc.

Btw, Q Acoustics speakers work very well with Yamaha AV amplification :rockout:

All the best

Er sorry I can't answer your technical question, but from where did you get a new Yamaha RX-A2010 for only £850, with a three-year warranty??

Hi Son_of_SJ

All Aventage Series AV receivers carry Yamaha's three year warranty as standard Smile

Btw, as the current Aventage range is on its way out the prices have generally come down by quite a margin.

All the best

Thank you Rick. I realise that they will be superseded by the 1020 etc series fairly soon, as I said yesterday in another post. However, the cheapest that I can find for the RX-A2010 is £949. Hence my wondering precisely where the OP got one for a hundred pounds less, as I am seriously considering buying one.

Hi, i got it from slrhut.co.uk, its priced at £790 but that is without warranty, managed to haggle and get the 3 year warranty for £60 when i think its priced at £125.  Comes from america and arrived within 48 hours.  :grin:

Thanks for that information Barry! The last time that I bought something from America (two of my Tannoy TS12 subwoofers) I forgot about the difference in voltage between America and the UK, and I unthinkingly plugged one in - and blew the circuit board, which led to a £300 repair. Ouch! I'll be more careful next time!
