My current setup :-

Onkyo SR608 AV Amp
Philips 3000 BR Player (intend to buy myself a Sony BDP S370 or 470)
KEF KHT 3005SE Silver
3 x 1.5M Audioquest Indigo + for the Front & Center Speakers
1 pair of 1M Audioquest Quartz X3 analogue inter-connect btw BR player & AV Amp
1 pce of 3M XLO/VDO ER2 cable run as digital inter-connect btw BR Player & AV Amp
1 pce of 1M Wireworld Ultraviolet 6 btw BR Player and AV Amp
1 pce of 2M Wireworld Chroma 6 btw BR player and 42" LCD TV

What cable should I run btw the AV Amp to the Sub ?
Currently don't even know what exactly is the brand use.

Hello,
Since it seems you are a fan of Audioquest, I would go with a Sub-2. I am using the same Cable myself as it was given to me when I purchased my Martin Logan Depth.

Many thanks on the Sub Cables.

My current setup problem : Movies is OK, but Music wise, still lack the warm & details.

I use this setup 50% Music (mostly vocal) & 50% Movies.

Advises seem to be problem on the speakers packages.

Thinking of a few alternatives, which of them is a better choice for my application ??
Option 1 : Replace the front 3 speakers with Kef iQ30 + iQ6c
Option 2 : Mointer Audio BX2/BX1/BXC/BX-W10
Option 3 : B&W 685/686/HTM62/ASW608

On BR Player choices : Sony BDP S570 vs Marantz UD5005. Which is better ?

All of your speaker choices are top notch and i personally only have experiance with Monitor Audio, if i were you and had the opurtunity i would audition before i bought and made a decision, if possible.

Hello,
I am quite fond of the B&W's and Monitor Audio. I would not worry about getting a matching Subwoofer and instead check out Hsu Research, SVS, and Chase Home Theater for your Subwoofer.

You will get a far better sub by going this route as these companies are Internet Direct and have been tested by Professional Reviewers with stellar results.
Cheers,
JJ

I have to agree with Bambino concerning the quality choice of your speakers....and with Jungle Jack concerning the subs.



thinking outside the box here....do you have any room treatments?

No room treatment.

On the sub choice : do some research, naroow down to either a REL T2 or Sunfire HRS10.

Recommendation ?
