I have read through several pages of threads and haven't really found what i was after so figured some of you would be able to provide some good advice.
I recently bought a Sony DAV-TZ200 Home Theatre System from Noel Leeming which was on special. I was intending on using this with my Sony Bravia 46" KDL-46W5500, my HTPC, and Xbox 360 all through HDMI.
Unfortunately to my surprise, there are no digital inputs on this Home Theatre system so i'm guessing this is useless for providing 5.1 surround sound with my TV, HTPC and 360? The only input i see is an RCA which won't give me 5.1 right?
Have any of you gurus got any suggestions on what i can do?
I have been reading that i need to get myself an HT Receiver or AV receiver? What would you reccomend? I really don't want to spend more than $800, i also have no speakers.
I'm thinking i will take the DAV-TZ200 back to Noel Leeming and get a refund, or should i hang onto it and use the speakers and just buy a receiver?
I also have a Pioneer SP-D07 Dolby Surround, AC3, Pro Logic Processor which was handed down to me. It has some digital optical inputs on it, but i think this is only a preamp. It has some RCA plugs for speakers but doesn't look like my DAV-TZ200 speakers will work on this.
Sounds quite complicated but maybe you can help me?
