Hello all

I have been a lurker here for some time and now that Iíve pieced together my system I thought this would be a great thread to join in on. Please don't make fun of me as I am very new to this Technology
I am looking forward to what the future will bring.

My receiver is a Denon AVR-2803
Main speakers are JBL36 which I purchased in 1976
Center Channel is a JBL LC1
Sub is a Velodyne CHT-12
Surround Speakers are OEM SE-893KE Ceiling Mount

Iíll be attempting to hook it all up this weekend and I can't wait.
Wish me luck

Welcome to HDF!

I doubt that anyone will make fun of you. We were all new to this at one time and I am still little more than a noob myself compared to a lot of the folks on here.

Nice Denon you have there. I hope you have some good speaker wire to connect it up with. If you get stuf, have problems or even want to boast about how great it sounds, do let us know.

Default Denon AVR-2803

Hello

Well I am in the final stages of hooking up my system and to tell you the truth I am overwhelmed. I have all of the speakers installed and wired in with 14 gauge speaker wire. Iv downloaded the 75 page owners manual, its way over my head. I am trying to figure out why I need to run video though my receiver. I have dish vip722k dvr and itís hooked directly to my HDTV though a HDMI Cable my Denon is an older model and has only S video jacks. Your input is appreciated.

Please list the model of the Denon receiver.

In your case, running the HDMI cable from the DVR to the TV is your best bet for HD. If your Denon has a digital optical (TOSLINK) input and the DVR has the same type of output, you could get dolby digital audio to go along with the HD video.

In the newer systems, it just makes life easy to be able to run HDMI cables from the various components to the receiver, then one HDMI output from the receiver to the TV. In this way, the receiver is the "orchestra leader" of your entertainment system.

Agreed, it simplifies your connections while provides excellent info transmission between components.

The usual recommendation to run video through the receiver does not apply to older equipment like yours which can't support HD video. So, you should run HDMI from the sources to the TV and use separate digital audio connections from the sources to your AVR-2803. That makes switching sources a bit of a pain since you have to select and switch the TV and the receiver separately. A good remote like a Harmony takes care of switching headaches.

Hello

First off I want to thank you all for your replies, You are all a great help to me. I did check the back of my Denon AVR-2803 receiver and it does have 4- digital optical (TOSLINK) inputs and 1-output as well as my DVR. And cd player. On my way to pick up the cables.

I'm certainly no expert like many here, and I am unfamiliar with the ultra high-end Denon receivers that you guys are discussing in this thread, but I would really appreciate it if you could chime in on my situation. Link to my first High Def Forum post below:

......Sorry, the site won't let me post a link. My question is posted in a new thread titled "Did I make a mistake...."

I'm hoping that you guys will tell me that my "upgrade-move" to the 1911 was a smart one.

With the inclusion of the Denon 1911, here is what my current setup includes:

*Denon AVR-1911 Receiver
*Panasonic TH-58PZ800U
*Panasonic DMP-BD60 Blu-Ray Disc Player
*Sony CDP-CX400 Disc Changer
*Cerwin-Vega 5.1 speaker system

Thanks for any comments.

Well I finally got the system up and runing and I must say it blew my socks off. I am so happy I took the advice of of the members here and bought a good center channel speaker. I can now here whats being spoken. I still have a lot to learn about the system and it's adjustments but just getting it up and running was a big step for me.

Thanks All
