Here is what I have.....
Epic 80-600 package 5.1 setup, Halo C1 controller, Halo A51 amplifier, Oppo DVD player, Mitsubishi 62 DLP 1080p
I will be using balanced cables for speakers from the controller to the amplifier, 12 guage speaker wires from amp to the speakers, HDMI cable from Oppo to TV, Opital cable from DVD to Controller, monster subwoofer cable from controller to the subwoofer....I will have to caliberate once all the connections are made.....is there any better way to connect the above setup.....
For now the system will be used for watching movies only.....but later i will add the satellite/cable
any thoughts/comments are appreciated

Sounds like you've got it handled well -- with the exception of the overpriced monster sub cable.

Peter, get out of my head. I was just going to reply with pretty much what you said word for word. That's just creepy.

If you have problems, give me a call and as I mentioned, I can always make a trip over to offer any help I can. Again, congrats on the Halos, and if you decide the C1 is not right for you, I'll gladly make deal on trade for a C2 C2.

As Peter says, you seem to have things well in hand. Only thing I could possibly suggest would be to hook up the 5.1 analog outputs of the Oppo to your controller in order to take advantage of the Oppo's ability to play DVD-A discs.

It is possible, however, that you aren't interested high resolution audio, and the relatively expensive DVD-A discs that provide it. I'm so hooked on the damned things (DVD-A AND SACD discs) that I suffer mild disappointment every time I listen to a standard (redbook) CD.
