High speed passive HDMI cable is certified up to a maximum of 25'. But not all cables have been certified so you need to find out if a certification is available for the length of cable you buy. Any...

This appears to be a European model (PAL, Region 2 DVD) with an integrated (built-in) DVD player. That means that the sub is probably passive so you will be limited somewhat in your ability to adjust...

Again, the BA speakers are better than the Onkyo so I'd go with the Denon system. A powered sub makes all the difference.

You paid too much. The Denon was a much better system, and if you could find it as a refurb like afrogt suggested, you could've paid a lot less for a superior system. But, if you like what you hear,...

The BA speakers will be better than the Onkyo. What kind of speaker connectors do the Onkyo speakers have? They may not even work with the Denon.

Monoprice, Blue Jeans, MediaBridge, to name a few, all make good, reliable cables. If your lengths are short, say under 6', you can probably get away with a smaller gauge cable if you want...

I don't think anything is being broadcast in native 4k so at best, you'll get an upconverted pictured from a normally compressed signal.
