How do I set these up? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Sorry I used the wrong terminology, but we are saying the same thing.

I should have said, "patch cords", or as you stated, "Analog Stereo".

These
are the cords I meant to refer to.

Those would work?

I think the people in this thread are talking to far above your head. All you have to do is get some speaker wire and connect it to an amp, the one you linked on amazon should do fine.

I recommend using Optical out on your blu ray player to connect it to your amp, but the amp you linked doesnt have optical in.

If you spend more and get something like this one above you get the capability to eventually add a bass and two rear speakers and have a 5.1 set up. In the mean time this also acts as a HDMI switch meaning you connect you can connect your blu ray player, ps3, xbox 360 or whatever in, and have one HDMI cord going from the amp to your TV.

I have two paradigm tower speakers like this and they act as the two main front speakers in my 5.1 set up. I think thats what most people would eventually use speakers like this for because most home theater amps support 5.1 and 7.1 speakers.

You mean this one, right?

Because your link doesn't quite work.

How about the Yamaha RX-V640 - AV ? There's some guy selling a slightly used one for around 120 dollars. It still has warranty.

Yeah, those are component, I am not sure if they are the exact same but they should be as I've used component cables on analog inputs.

OP: You will hook you blu-ray player up to the receiver through those cables, then use speaker wire of the appropriate size to hook the speakers up to the receiver.

You guys are missing the point....What's his budget? Amp/receiver can range from $10 to thousands.
