McIntosh Mx130 question

Hi All,
I'm coming into a McIntosh MX 130 unit, with a McIntosh six channel amp. I've heard it's excellent (it will be my first McIntosh piece), but it has no HDMI capabilities. I'd love to use this with my new plasma TV and Blu-ray player. How can I get the most out of this without HDMI in or outputs?

Can I simply run the HDMI directly from my Blu-ray player to the TV and use conventional interconnects for the sound from the McIntosh to my speakers?

Thanks in advance.

You answered your own questions in the last paragraph, simply run the cabling as you suggest.
I agree if you have a BluRay with Six Analog Output, use those directly to the Six Channel Input on the 130. You may have to use component video between the BluRay and TV, depending on the players output configuration options. I owned a 130 years ago and it is a fine piece of equipment. What amp are you getting with it?
Thanks so far all! I think it's an MC7108. Don't know anything about it, but it's my girlfriend's, so it's part of a package deal (the girl and the stereo!)

any ideas or alternative recommendations?
The 7108 is a 8 channel amp. That would give you an opportunity to bi-amp your front speakers! Or you can bridge that ampo as well for more power.
