My new KLV-46W550A LCD TV and BDP-S350 Blu-ray Disc Player (Part 1)
The Blu-Ray Disc player comes with free HDMI cable and free Surf Up Blu-Ray movie. Sweet. That should saved my money to get start with high definition movie right away as HDMI cable and Blu-Ray movie can easily cost you RM250.
But to road for me to enjoy high definition movie is still very far. First, I need to take out my old TV from the cabinet. The work for this commenced immediately.
Secondly, I need to rewire all of my sound system to include the new TV and the new Blu-Ray disc player, and taking out several other components in my system. Below is the diagram of my current system, which I blog last time in this entry.
I have Sony Home Theatre System at the moment. This is all in one system where the sound system and DVD player is combined in a single device. All this while, this has served me well for my surround sound need. But it lack of digital audio input (optical or coaxial) that allow you to plug any other device to it. So, I decided to take out this from the system, and use the previously bought Sony STR-DK5 Professional Karaoke Amplifier. This is already a full featured 5.1 channel receiver already. Did I mentioned in my previous blog entry that I’m Sony fan? LOL
So, I will unplugged everything from the system, and redo the cabling and wiring from scratch. Wow! The back of my TV cabinet surely keeping so my dust. And these are all tangled cables from my current sound system. It wasn’t this messy actually, but a few months ago, I need to take out my PS2 (selling it to someone else) where I have to untie all the cables.
All-rite. All the cables untied, and all the dust vacuumed away. Let get started from a scratch. If you are a regular reader of my blog, by now you should be able to guess already who is sitting on my TV cabinet.
The very first thing to do is to arrange and do the cabling for my 6-piece speaker. Instead on running the cable under my carpet, I decided to have the cables run along the wall this time. I hope my landlord won’t kill me for doing that.
6 different cables from my 6 speakers (except centre speaker) is nicely tied together.
And labelling is important. It’s easier later when connecting this to the receiver so that I know which one belongs to front speaker, which one is rear, which one is left channel and which one is right channel.
The clock shows 12:15am when I finish this. I get too tired already, and I don’t want to rush this. So I guess that’s all for today, and I will continue with the next step tomorrow.
