You do not need expensive HDMI cables contrary to what a salesman tells you. The HDMI cable carries both audio and video between devices including the 3 d signal.
That receiver you looking at is inexpensive comes with a dvd player not blu ray. I attempted to look up the number of HDMI ports on the back of the unit on the web. I was unsuccesful..
When you buy the television, usually the 3 d glasses are extra forget about the receiver at present, also you may have to buy a stand or bracket which will ad to the purchase cost.
That TV is selling for approximately $2000.00 in many places. Buy a blu ray player make certain that it is equipped with 3D most average to above average players are so equiped.
Connect everyhting up to the TV and enjoy it. The sound on the TV is not as bad as you think there are sound fields you can adjust on the TV and this set had a built in woofer as well as a left and right speaker.
Certainly your sound will be enhanced if you have an av receiver. These units usually enhance the video signal and improve the sound think of them as the brain of you audio video set up.
You would need HDMI ports on the back of the avi receiver minimium, TV, Blu ray DVD,aux This will permit a choice of devices that you can attach.
I would suggest that you buy the receiver or sound bar once you have become more knowlegeable and have a comfort zone in their function and use, or in the alternate have a knowlegeable friend assist in the purchase and set up
thanks for your insight dude..Dont worry i ve a adequate knowledge about receivers and HDMI. HDMI cables are used to interface TV with the input signal to tranfer datas at higher speed than the normal cables does which results in better PQ and audio if i'm right. i'm urging to buy 5.1 with the TV itself cuz i can snatch a 3D blu ray player + sony DAV DZ340 5.1 HT as a combo pricing 16k in discount where it cost around 30k(14+16) if i buy them separately. definitely i need to buy 3D payer to play 3D movies so if i get some queries cleared i can get a proper 5.1 with almost in half price. i dont ve a knowledgeable person around me to help so i ve to learn by myself so please help me, if u still think that combo doesnt worth it i'll better avoid it.this 5.1 model has 1 HDMI port ( for entire spec refer this link: http://www.flipkart.com/sony-dav-dz340-5-1-home-theatre-system/p/itmd29nzzgvm4kff
1.when we connect this model 5.1 with the 3D blu ray player, it wont play that file since it doesn't play BD format(since the receiver which comes with the sony DAV DZ340 will support only DVD, Xvid,... but not BD)...am i right?
2.how should i set up DTH and blu ray player with HTIB or HT with receiver?? wt are the HDMI compatibilities i should look upon the HTIB and bluray player b4 buying??
3.if i'm right, the o/p from DTH is 2 channel so the 5.1 connected with the TV doesnt plays 5 channel surround system so i need a receiver in between to convert 2 channel sound to 5 channel sound..am i right?
4. The price of the sony HX850(55 inches)quoted for me in Trichy showroom is 1.83 lacs where can i get the tv for much lower price as u said in TN ??also is it safe to buy from outside the showroom??Edited by Ganesh Raja - 10/22/12 at 4:08am
