a little Integra help
I suppose this has already been covered here.....
It's a nice reciever (then again, my current one is about 16 years old)
speaker cable size is kinda important. Think of it like the plumbing in your house. if your pipes are small, you won't get water as much or as fast as you want it. As for input/output cables, well, decent ones, I guess. I can't say--they either work, or not.
as for #3-yes..you're getting warmer. If all you use is red and white, then you'll get stereo. If you use HDMI/optical/coaxial, then you will get multichannel sound. You may have to enable it on the Bell HD Sat reciever you have, and get another cable (sigh)
