    Samsung 56" DLP
    Denon AVR3803
    Monster HT2600 power thingie
    Mirage OM7 fronts
    Mirage OM center
    Mirage OM surrounds
    SV 20-39PCi sub (oh boy!)

    2 x Digital Audio Cable, Belden 1694A, 3 foot

    I still have to buy a Samsung DVD (DVI) and a DVI cable. I'll be using an old Panasonic non-progressive DVD player until then.

    Now the waiting begins.

    Thanks to this forum and the keen folks on it I ended up saving over $2000 compared to what I was going to originally buy. Thank you!

    It's all been trickling in, but the last bit (the TV and tv stand) will be in August 15th. I'll wire it all up and if there's no problems I'll be watching my first movie on it August 16th.

    Shane,

    Really impressive selection! How fortunate you cud acquire a fairly advanced-level system in one swoop.

    You've got the surge/power center; the sensible industrial-level cables and wiring; even the brand new Samsung DLP 56-model. Where'd you see it? (I want this size, too).

    Aree you getting the model stand...cuz I wonder where the center spkr will rest for some of us with fatter CCs.

    bill

    Bill,

    I haven't actually seen the TV yet - it doesn't come out till August 15th - but I've seen older Samsung DLP tvs, plus a few other companies' DLPs. What really sold me on DLP was no burn in for video games, much thinner than standard RPTVs, and the picture looked great.

    No model stand - I'm getting a triple from http://www.salamanderdesigns.com/syn/triples.jsp. Tweeter sells them. My CC still won't fit in that, though. I'm going to have to put it on the wall above the TV.

    well, I didn't mean crap as in 'bad poo on my shoe', but as crap as in 'neato stuff'. Crap good, not bad. Bad crap bad, good crap good. Crap on shoe bad, A/V crap in media room good. No bad, just good.
