Okay... I know this is the basics area, but this subject doesn't just cover display or speakers, it pretty much covers everything. I already have a receiver and a center channel, both of which can be returned if the set up requires alteration. I have a budget that I'm firm with and I don't want to cap, but I need to know how to prioritize the budget so it covers sound and video. This is going to take time, boys, so any help will be greatly appreciated. Set Up A: This is the sound primary set up that will leave me with a small budget for my display device, probably a 32" non High Def flat screen, or maybe a used RPTV with 1080i capability. Center Channel: Infinity Primus C25 Black Floorstanding Fronts: Two Infinity Primus 360 Black Surrounds: Two Infinity Primus 160 Black Subwoofer: Velodyne CHT10 or Infinity PS10 Black Notes: This set up is primarily Infinity Primus, because as I've heard, you want to match the sound. The only thing is, the floorstanding and surrounds all use 6 1/2" drivers while the center channel uses 5 1/4" drivers. I'm wondering if this mix will cause inconsistencies in the vocals during scenes with speech and a lot of highs. The center channel is also a two way while the floorstandings are three way. The subs, while most of you will think are "under par" are actually ABOVE what I planned. I originally planned not to use a sub at all, because I don't want something that has a lot of low frequency boom. I will be watching primarily action movies, but I have room-mates and they study a lot. Total Thus Far: 597.97 Yes I know that's a low price for this equipment, but I get discounts on Polk/Harmon Kardon/Infinity products, which is why I'm going with an Infinity or Polk Set up. This leaves me close to 900 for the display/furniture/DVD Player Display set up: Samsung HCN4226 W - 42" silver cabinet widescreen HDTV RP $1133 - This is a little above my budget but I want HDTV so I can use progressive scan, and the only other tv's that are in that range are the analog HDTV 32" Panasonic, or the 32" Samsung which has reliability issues. or Panasonic CT32HXC43 - This TV is like a rock. Even Sony has TV's that come into Circuit City "defective" that need service, but I have NEVER, in the past 6 months that I've worked there, seen ONE Panasonic tv come back because it didn't work right. This TV is an HDTV set, but I don't know if 32" is "big enough". or Samsung TXN3245FP - This TV is an EDTV monitor, that can be "hacked" through software to display HDTV, because it uses the exact same board and tube that the TXN3275HF uses, which is High Def. My issue with this tv is its reliability, but it has the advantage of cost - $576 dollars is very attractive, considering I can always get the extended warranty. I just don't want to be in a position where I have to take my tv back every two months because it starts going haywire. Front Projectors are out of the question, considering I do not have an ergonomic advantage to use one. I don't have the space nor do I have the priviledge to use a pull down screen, and mounting one on the ceiling is out of the question. I also don't feel there is any reasoning to having to spend another 200 dollars to replace a bulb every year or so.
