Which Component to Buy First?

What component or components should I buy first when putting together a sound system or home theater?

Always start with your speakers!!! This applies to any sound system pro, home, car, etc. Until you know what speakers you are dealing with it is impossible to determine what kind of power requirements you will need in an amplifier or receiver. The quality of your speakers will also help determine what caliber of CD player you purchase, your DVD player and any other source in you system that is upstream from your speakers. There is no sense in purchasing a $2k CD player if you can only afford an $800 pair of speakers. Once you have picked out speakers that you like you can then audition any other components you may purchase on those very same speakers. This will give you the most accurate representation of what you system will really sound like.
