Sort of a newbie in the audio area. What are the benefits of having a system that cvonnects the audio and visual thru hdmi? The salesperson I spoke with told me that no system uses both thru hdmi. I told him that I read that some did and he then said that maybe some highend setups might.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER go to a salesman without knowing a lot about a model that you are buying. Unfortunately the pay that they give some of these salesmen doesn't encourage them to really understand their industry. You don't need to spend any more than $400 to purchase a true 5.1 surround system with HDMI audio/video. The benefit is that you get digital audio/video in one cable (some people have HDMI issues but that's a whole different argument). Also you can buy HDMI cables for under $10 and the quality is the same as the supposed "high end" Monster HDMI cables. Just google HDMI and you'll learn about how it supports more than 5.1 surround sound.
We have a 46xbr4 with an hd dvr with FIOS. What is the best way to hook it up for the best audio/visual experience?
Look in the back of your HD DVR box and there should be an HDMI connection. I'm assuming your Sony TV has at least one HDMI connection as well. Just hook it up to whatever HDMI receiver/HTIB that you end up getting. You'll get the best audio and video.
Should we get a different system? The wireless rears will make our installation more simplified. Any info appreciated.
I don't mess with wireless rears as I've read nothing but complaints about them. If you don't want to/can't run wires behind your couch then go with the Sony CT-100.
