Please help! What equipment do I need to do that?
The idea is to avoid running two hdmi cables across the whole living room - from the pc to the receiver and back from receiver to projector pc and projector are close to each other. Would i need a gadget such as a media player between the pc and the receiver to decode media files from the PC?
If so, ideally such a media player should have an easy and responsive explorer-like menu, which I can easily navigate to find relevant content on my PC. Otherwise, even better, I'd prefer to just launch files on my pc and have the receiver play them sound and pictures All advice will be much appreciated. I tried everything I could think of so far and cant figure out what will work May 29, 2, 1 22, 1,By Danny Briere, Pat Hurley. The receiver itself connects to your speakers and to your display with another set of audio and video cables.
Keep your right and left in mind with audio cables. Any device that connects with analog audio cables has two connections the cables themselves usually, but not always, come in attached stereo pairs. One jack the right is usually colored red, and the other is colored white.
Make sure that you connect the left output on the source device to the corresponding left input on the back of your receiver. Use digital audio connections whenever possible. Use coaxial or optical digital audio cables to connect DVD players, game consoles, DSS receivers, or any source that has a digital audio output.
If you want to use Dolby Digital or DTS with any of these sources, you must use the digital audio connection. Keep track of which connections you use on your receiver. This is where keeping track of your connections comes in handy. To send the audio and video from the game console to your speakers and display, you have to select the laser disc input on your receiver.
Use an extra set of audio and video cables to connect your recording systems. When you connect your VCR or PVR to these inputs, use an extra set of cables to connect the receiver back to the inputs on these sources labeled Audio In and Video In on the back of the source.
This lets you route audio and video through the receiver for recording purposes. Use the highest-quality video connections available to you. Otherwise, use component video if your sources have these connections. Some sources such as many VCRs have only composite video connections.Create the home audio setup that fits your life, wirelessly. Multi-room, stereo, surround sound — the choice is yours.

Hi-res everywhere. Subscribe to the magazine. Subscribe now.For many people, hearing every nuance of sound in a recording can be almost more important than the songs themselves. Some may think that an analog Hi-Fi system is the only way to enjoy this level of detail.
But with the rise in popularity of digital audio and continuous ongoing innovation, analog may have met its match. There are already some wireless speakers that can stream Hi-Fi audio from any mobile device without a significant drop-off in sound quality.
Before you begin, be sure you understand the differences between the types of audio files you can stream.
As shown in the illustration below, analog audio is usually represented as a wave. You can think of its digital equivalent as boxes that fill in the space with small gaps in-between:. There are two important terms to understand here.
This describes the number of times per second the incoming analog signal is analyzed. The higher this rate, the more accurately a sound is recreated — in other words, the better the audio. The downside is that higher sampling rates result in more numbers, so the files created are larger … and therefore require more bandwidth to be streamed. The second term is bit resolution.
This describes how large each digital word is. A bit digital word, for example, will yield better audio than a bit word. As an example, CDs store data as bit words, with a sampling rate of 44, times per second This is what many streaming services provide, and therefore what many wireless speakers support when streaming.
High-resolution audio is typically produced at 24 bits but with higher sample rates of 96 or even kHz. The file type also needs to be in a lossless format to be considered high-res. There are also limited hi-res streaming options on the market for Bluetooth. Wi-Fi offers more stability and distance, in addition to the ability to stream to multiple devices at the same time.
Coming to the U. However, you can also stream high-res files that have been downloaded to a local storage drive, such as a thumb drive or NAS Network Attached Storage drive. Due to the large size of high-res files, we recommend you use a 2 TB NAS drive if you have a large library of files. However — and this is important — not all speakers are designed to support the streaming of high-res audio.
The good news is that MusicCast -enabled devices from Yamaha which also provide multi-room audio solutions make it a breeze. The Yamaha MusicCast Controller app offers a user-friendly option for streaming high-res audio to any MusicCast wireless speaker, such as the MusicCast Next, select the device you want to stream to.You can stream SiriusXM on a wide variety of home and custom audio systems.
