I need some help. I'm kind of an audiophile, but unfortunately, I don't know a ton about setting up sound. I just know I like crisp, clear audio and clean, heavy bass. So, with that said, I'm looking on upgrading my audio system.
I'm wanting to upgrade, and I found a killer deal on a Yamaha HTR-5890 Receiver. Now, I know this is a 7.1 and my soundcard is only 5.1, but eventually I'll have a new desktop with a 7.1 soundcard, so don't worry about that little point.
Also, I'm looking to upgrade the satellites over time to these: Polk Monitor Series II and the rest of the Monitor II series, or something in that range.
My question is... help me get everything I need to get this setup working properly please! What would I need to hook the Klipsch sub to the receiver? Would the 3.5mm to mono RCA connector and RCA cable work? Am I going to blow anything with that receiver? What speaker cables should I use? What's the best way to connect the receiver to the 5.1 sound card?
I'd love to read a great guide on audio setup, if anyone want's to link one. But I'd also love to get some feedback on my questions for this setup, thanks!
