I used to be an HTF reviewer and sold TVs at Circuit City as a way to get out and talk about my hobby. But then I changed careers and lost touch with the home theater market. I was satisfied with my tv and receiver, and didn't really have the money to upgrade anyway. I am, however, now in the position to reignite my passion with a home purchase and new job with a little extra cash. I have found a tv and receiver that I like. I'm in no rush to buy, so I figured that I would open a question to the crowd: when would be the best time to pull the trigger on a purchase? When do model years change over?
