I want to add a blu-ray player to my stereo system and need some guidance. My stereo system has two custom-made speakers, a Plinius 8200 integrated amp, Arcam Alpha 9 CD player, and Pro-Ject turntable. In a separate room I have a 37-in. flat screen TV connected to cable and DVD player. In a third room (office) is the computer and online system. My preference would be to add the blu-ray to the stereo since I want it for the improved sound and the video is incidental (to me). Can I just buy a blu-ray and connect it into my system? I assume I also need a TV for the blu-ray so how does that connect into the stereo system? Are those the only two components I would need to add?
Another option would be to add blu-ray to the TV, but the audio for that system is abysmal. Should I consider a home theater with the blue-ray and TV to upgrade the sound?
How does all this work and connect to the computer?
Basic questions, I'm sure, but I can't find all these answers anywhere and the local hi-end audio "expert" spent my time continually talking over my head despite my best efforts to dumb him down.
Any help will be appreciated.
