Nice!

Agreed... A picture is worth a thousand words!

We just sold one house and moved into our new/old "mid century atomic ranch". I'll post a few pics once I dig out of all the boxes. Boxes, newspaper and bubble wrap everywhere. Moving sucks!

Without Music, life would be a mistake... (FN)
There are no facts, only interpretations... (FN)

PS3, Harmon Kardon AVR-254, Harmon Kardon DVD-38, Yamaha YBA-11, Panasonic TC-55LE54, Chane A2rx-c L/C/R, Chane A1rx-c LR/RR, Rythmic Sub on the way.

I need assistance

I have ordered an Edifier s330d speaker. It has a coaxial connection, optical spdif, rca connections, aux connection. Which connection gives the best sound quality? I believe it is the optical. My other question is, I have my pc, my xbox and a bluray player all connected to my tv via their own hdmi cables. The tv has an rca out and what looks like an optical spdif out. If I connect to the speaker via the spdif out of the tv, would that be the same as connecting directly from my pc to the subwoofer box? As far as quality is concernet, seeing how the computer is connected via hdmi, as it is converted within the tv, does it keep it's integrity normally or no? Also, the speakers are connected via speaker cables. Doesn't that lower the quality anyway? Is there any point of using something of better quality like an optical cable when it is downgraded as it goes to the speaker anyway? I appreciate your help.

Looking to upgrade. Where to start?

I have :
Front - Optimus STS 800 Towers
Center- Sony SS-CR3000
Surround - Sony SS-CR3000
Sub - Sony SA-W2500
Powered by a Denon AVR-1610

I am considering upgrading. However, I am having trouble deciding the best bang for the buck. I have even looked at gutting the sub and installing a Dayton speaker and amp from Parts Express. I just don't know if it would be an improvement. The Towers have some age on them, but still sound pretty good.
Any ideas as to what my weakest link is?

Not sure what your budget is, but I just upgraded from an Onkyo 606 AVR and Paradigm 7semk3 Floorstanders to an Integra DTR 50.6AVR and Focal Aria 926s. I also have a polk center and sub that I may upgrade later. The old system served me well but the new one was a nice upgrade and sounds great. Total cost for AVR and speakers was ~ $4k.

I am looking to see if I can get an improvement for a couple hundred.That's why I was asking about sub upgrades and building/modifying my own. I understand if it isn't possible. My system doesn't sound bad. It just isn't as crisp as I would like.
