    Waiting for my new house to finish building.
    1st Home Theater set.
    I am slowly picking pieces one by one for my home theater set. So far, I have:

    Amp - Harmon Kardon AVR-7000
    DVD - Onkyo 5disk Progressive Scan
    Rear Surround - B&W LM's

    All are sitting in box waiting for completion of HT.


    1). My living room family room will be 16 X 18. Will I 65" too big? or 55" will do? Thinking about getting the Mitsubishi WS-65511 or WS-55511. I'm wanting the HDTV integrated TV. Best price found so far is $3200 for 65511 at Home Theater Store. Any other suggestion to buy a different brand of TV?

    2). What front speakers should I buy? Budget @ $1000.

    3). Still searching for sub and center. Thinking about the SVS sub but they are so expensive! Any suggestions?

    I am looking forward to my future HT set. I will be doing a lot of researching. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    My opinion on size. Go as big as you can. 16 X 18 is a pretty large room and about the size of a friends room and he has a Tosh 65" and I think it looks perfect.

    The "bigness" will wear off after about a month of use. [​IMG]

    Thanks for your reply Robert.

    I never knew that satellite and cable have HDTV integrated in their recievers. I thought that the only way for you to get HDTV was to HAVE the HDTV reciever. What about Progressive Scan DVD players? Will I be able to see the full HDTV?

    Now that I know that, I might just get the WS-55411. It's a lot cheaper too. It's good to catch over the air HDTV but not worth an extra 600 bucks!

    Robert,

    Yes, my local cable does have the local channels. That's great!

    I already have a progressive scan dvd player. ONKYO. What is 1080i and 480p?

    I have cable internet. If I hook the cable to the TV, I get the basic cable channels and local channels too, for free. I just pay the monthly internet service. Do you think I can get HDTV like this?

    Thanks again.
