    Hi everybody !

    Here's the deal, i'm going to install a home theater in my country house, i have a room of 8 meters long, 4,35 wide and 3,50(maybe a little more) height.

    I have the following :

    Marantz: SR4600 A/V Receiver

    Sony: TA-VE700  a/v amplifier    (but i'm not going to use it since the Marantz is newer)
             ST-SE 700 tuner
             CDP-XE500 cd player
             DVP-NS305 dvd player
             DVP-NS32     "     "
             SS-E 455V  main speakers
             SS-CN55    central speaker
             SS-SR55     surround speakers
             SA-W505   subwoofer
             KV-32 or 36 WEGA (i'm not sure because i'm not at that house right now but its a good tv)

    So i would really appreciate your comment's about this, I would also like to get manuals for all my speakers (except the sub) because i don't find them nowhere (neither in the house or the web). and what do you recommend for my surround back speakers as i have to buy ones but i would like something somehow "near" my actual speakers or better.


    Also what do you say about if i connect the cd player to the a/v receiver via the digital out port? i've never used it is really much better?

    Sorry for the long text but i would really appreciate Expert help
    Thank's and if some of you plan to visit Portugal, send a mail before and pay me a visit !!!

    Welcome to Agoraquest!  There don't appear to be manuals for the speakers listed; however, I can provide the specifications for the SS-CN55 and SS-SR55 speakers.  Is that what you are after?

    You should definitely try connecting your cd player to the a/v receiver via the digital out port, because you may notice an improvement.  How much of an improvement, I can't say.

    Hi jehill !

    The specifications are exactly what i'm looking for, so if you could provide them i would appreciate it very much.

    Regarding to the SS-E455V main speakers do you i think i should mail sony ir order to obtain the specs. ?

    And once more what would you recommend for my surround back speakers?

    Thanks again

    I am not sure what the V suffix means, but I was able to obtain the specs for the SS-E 455.  If the suffix was a U instead of a V I would assume that it indicates the UK model.

    Thank you very much !!!that was like the final piece of the puzzle, now i can start looking for some surround back speakers that approach those specs.

    after the remodelling works are done in that room i'll place a picture in the forum.
    i'm now wondering if i should get a lcd 16:9 projector to really turn the room in a cinema.

    thank's again jehill, your help was extremely important.
