That's a new one to me ;).
It would also help to know your relative budget for everything, and what actual components you want. Do you plan on purchasing a blu ray player as well (etc.)?
FWIW, you might be better served by having a laptop with an actual HDMI port instead of the USB-HDMI workarounds I've seen.
I am planning to set up a home theater system for myself. Am totally new to this and the array of brands/models/features are driving me nuts ! Would greatly appreciate some advice about the components to buy. Heres a set of features/requirements that I am looking at:
1)My room size is about 12X12 though this can change as I dont have a dedicated room.
2) Use is for movies as well as music.
3) Reciever should have HDMI switching, cross conversion and upconversion.
4) High res, multichannel PCM over HDMI support
5) Onboard DolbyTru HD and DTS HD decoders
I was thinking of a Pioneer VSX 819H K or Onkyo SRX507 reciever with Polk RM705 or Polk RM 6750 speakers. Which combination would you recommend? Being my first setup, dont really want to burn a hole in my pocket
Also I am using an external sound card on my laptop to connect to a set of Logitech speakers. I would like to connect my laptop to the reciever. (Like a media server, I guess). Is a USB to HDMI audio converter the best option for this? Is there any other better/cheaper way? Recievers with bluetooth will take only stereo streaming, right? And I guess, they will be in the higher price bracket.
Thanks in advance for your help !
