I have a Yamaha HTR5660 6.1 channel receiver, Denon DVD900 DVD player and Polk Audio R50 speakers.
I need advice on:
1) what is the best type of cable for connecting the speakers to the receiver (I heard about banana plugs). Any suggestions for brand/model numbers?
2) how should I connect my DVD player to the TV through the receiver and the TV to the receiver? I have heard of component cables (Y, Cr, Gr) for best picture quality, but I am not sure about the hookups - like I connect the 3 component cables from the DVD player to the TV, but how should I also connect the TV and DVD player to the receiver? My TV is a Sony with component cable connections available.
Please help with connecting all this together and the cables I should purchase - I'm a complete newbie at this.
Thanks in advance.
