Hi.

I used to have a 5.1 system, but due to remodeling and failure of certain critical components, coupled with all manner of distractions and thin wallet, I no longer do. I'm pretty much limited to a 2-channel system that barely satisfies for TV/DVD/Blu-Ray right now, and is woefully inadequate for my vinyl listening habits. Now my 9 year old Onkyo AV receiver is periodically shutting itself down, so sometimes I have no system at all! I'll look into having it repaired, but I'm thinking about replacing it with something new that can handle HDMI inputs.

So that's why I'm here. I want to learn a bit about setting up a modest 5.1 system for movies, games, and TV. I'm also working on a separate 2-channel setup for my vinyl and CD.

So greetings. I look forward to participating in the forums.

Thank you all for the welcome.

This is a huge site, jammed packed with excellent information!

tonyvdb, that Short Circuit movie was great, wasn't it? The original, I mean. I believe there's a remake in the works. But alas, my number 5 is a reference to the narrator of "The Fifth Head of Cerberus", a novella by Gene Wolfe from the early '70s. I'm old!

Short Circuit was funny for its time, I watched it again about a year ago and it still had its good one liners however it sure shows its age. I turned 40 this past May so not so young either anymore.:bigsmile:
