I am in the process of building a HT in the family room and have a 20-25k budget in mind for a Plasma Display, Receiver, DVD player, and 5.1 speaker system. I've done a ton of reading online at this forum and at AVS, as well as testing at my local boutique, and have to come to the following conclusion regarding my purchases: Plasma display: Panasonic TH42PWD4U ($4,000) DVD Player Denon 3800 or 9000 ($1,000-$3,000) Receiver Denon 5803 ($3,500) 5.1 Speaker System M&K S-500 THX Ultra System ($4,500) M&K MX-5000 MK II THX Sub ($2,500) Total Cost ($18,000) including misc. cables & installation. It even leaves a little room for me to consider M&K's S-150's My goal is to get the best audio/video performance for the budget that I have allocated for each piece of equipment. The next step in the process is continued testing, and feedback from this forum, relative to performance, pricing, and interaction of the different components. Any feedback would be much appreciated.
