I need to buy a new tv, and want a 55" 16:9 intergrated rptv, crt or lcd. Which would be better? I was looking at the mits ws-55511, but I don't want to overlook some of the other possibiltys out there. I was wanting to spend $3000 or a little more for the tv. I also need a never surround receiver for about $1000, and why where at it a dvd player for around $500. Can you guys help me pick out something, I know alot of you have researched these things but need a little reassurane on what to buy. Is there anything else I should consider? Thanks Guys!

If I were you, here's the setup I would purchase: Hitachi 57" RPTV (57TWX20B) ~ $2400 Panasonic DVD Player (CP-72) ~ $200 Sony DirecTV/HDTV Receiver (HD200 w/DVI) ~ $700 TOTAL: $3300 for a pretty damn nice setup. Just my 2 cents...

TV: Lots of nice choices in that size/price range. I'd be really tempted to look at the Samsung 50" DLP set, which may be a little more expensive, but no worries about burn-in. Receiver: Denon 3803, Onkyo SR800, Sony DA4ES (I'd only look at Sony's ES gear), HK 525 are good models in that price range. DVD Player: You can get a very good player w/prog. scan, DVD-Audio, DCDi and no chroma bug for around $220 w/$30 rebate: Panasonic CP-72.

Ok, just send me an e-mail to jskains at cox.net and I'll send you my home address. You can then send me the money and I'll help you spend it. Thanks, JMS

How about some more info on your decision points? You've given a budget, are there any other constraints, preferences, observations, etc.? Room size, viewing distance, lighting, style, anything that could affect your choice.

I want the best that I can get for those amounts. Lighting is no problem, my distance only alows for 55" and under. On the receiver, I want one that supports all formats of surround sound. I would very much like to use one remote for all items. Thanks

Here'd be my choices although you may go over budget: Denon 3803 $1199 Denon DVD-900 - $299 Samsung 50 inch DLP - $4000 YOu can probably get discount if you buy both together to get you under that $4500 price cap. Bad part? No HDTV tuner included at that price. I don't really care since cable is going to give me one anyway.
