I have a Samsung 4095d TV and was looking for a nice surround sound system for it. Aside from having the TV, Xbox 360, PS2, and whatever else I hook up to my TV be supported, I wanted to be able to hook my computer up to it and for it to also have a CD player and FM tuner. I bought the Samsung HT-Q70 home theater setup today, but I just realized I think I would have been better off with a receiver. It seems to me that right now I can only use the Q70 for watching movies, but I want everything (game consoles, computer) to take advantage of it. Both the TV and HTIB support HDMI so I got to thinking maybe if I connect the two through HDMI and then hook up a switch through the component inputs on the HTIB I'd be able to use the sound system for my game consoles. But how would this affect quality? I know part of it depends on the switch I use (right now I've got a Pelican 8 way switch that's only decent), but would I also lose quality for adding another potential bottleneck?
It seems buying a receiver and hooking each device up to it individually makes more sense (and is easier), but the Q70 was a decent price and so far it sounds great. I'm just wondering if it's feasible to hook my consoles up to a switch, then connect the switch to the Q70, and have the Q70 connected through the TV through HDMI.
Sorry if this post doesn't make much sense, part of it is just me rambling and the other part is my inexperience with this stuff - this is the first time I've even thought about a surround sound system
Any input and advice would really be appreciated.
edit: I left out a few things. I'm on a budget, I bought the Q70 for $375 after taxes and am pretty happy in that price range. Also I don't want bone-jarring sound - I've got people living beneath my apartment and don't want to upset them.
edit 2: crap, just realized it's only component OUT. it has two RCA aux in's but those won't help with my component 360, ps2, and cable box. guess i gotta return this and look for a new system
