all right, after going through my stuff I have a few issues, and I want to explain how I had the system set up before. I do not remember having to use the mic, but I could be wrong, so I am going to explain most of my set up.
I used only the pre out and had Onkyo grand Integra's coming off the pre outs.
all my speakers was JBL or Cerwin Vega's
I can not find my hdmi cable and was looking on eBay for a replacement and realized they have up graded a lot since I bought mine, I believe the ones I bought was like a 1.4 compatible, but now they have the 2.0 witch is for a 4k and that is the Sony TV I just bought. plus they have gold plated ones and braided ones. would value another's opinion about this on witch ones to look for.
last but least, I can not find my sub remote, do I need it, and after you read my set up, will I still need the mic? thanks
your help and opinion's are appreciated.
