Hey guys, in preparation for my new house, I'd like to get an idea about home theatre shit.
Basically looking for a 5.1 or 7.1 (not sure if I'll need that) receiver and some speakers to go with it. Probably will only need 3 HDMI inputs, maybe 1 optical audio, not sure if it's better to go with that over the regular sound from HDMI.
Not looking for top of the line shit, basically something to get me in the surround sound game that's better than just my TV speakers in the living room, for not too much money. Wireless speakers definitely an added bonus since the living room is sizable.
I really have no idea about this shit as I've always just had TV speakers. Not much of an audiophile.
I'd go for HDMI for audio these days, if you have an older high-quality DVD player or LaserDisc then go for optical otherwise HDCP will stick in possibly.
