    Where to buy?

    Well, I'm looking to change out a few things.

    Mainly more then anything a nice receiver and hdmi cables.

    I'm open to places and products options.

    Not worried about speakers or sub stage. I am going to build all of the that myself.

    Re: Where to buy?

    I bought my Onkyo receiver from Crutchfield. After a ton of searching I ended up getting the best deal there using a coupon I found on CouponCabin

    Not 100% sure I'd recommend Onkyo though, I did have to take it in for service because one of my HDMI ports just failed randomly.

    When I was in commercial A/V, we went through boxes of Monoprice-sourced DisplayPort cables that had faulty connectors. To the point where our engineers banned them from every bill of materials they could find You're definitely right, sometimes sourcing for a price point has its downsides. But their RCAs seemed to hold up.

    How much are you willing to spend?

    I'm partial to the idea of separating the equipment out into multiple components, as they tend to be built to a higher standard - so you'd have an integrated amp plus a tuner, or no tuner at all if you don't listen to the radio. But that costs much more than a typical Best Buy receiver does.

    As far as HDMI cables go, you can go with something basic like Extron (used a ton of them, never had any faults), or if you have a ton of cash to burn something like Blue Jeans (I happen to like their RCA interconnects, but they aren't cheap).

    Re: Where to buy?

    check out the yamaha p series for the sub stage.they are pa amplifiers.make sure the av has a sub out and get a line converter "ROLLS MB15B" it took my -10db rating from my yamaha htr-5830 and puts out +4db required for pro gear.no hum,amps fan runs quiet.no fuss,just works !! initially,i was going to go with a plate amp but read too many negative reviews about several different brands.the yamaha p series rocks.for home theater and music.and if thats not enough for you,then add a dbx 120a between the av and the amp.best of luck !

    edit;check out zzsounds.com excellent service with fast shipping
