I'm looking at piecing together a HT setup over the next couple of months, and I have some questions. They touch on a little of everything because I basically don't know anything, although I have read a bunch of threads on these forums so I am smarter than I was a week ago. I want to get a RPTV, and I want to keep the price to $1500 and below. I looked on Onecall.com and found two TV's. The Sony KP46WT510 and the Toshiba 51H83, and when I look through the information it lists a bunch of things I'm not really sure about? Other than looking at reviews, what listed facts should I be looking for? I read that after you get a TV you have to calibrate it, and I can do so with a CD, can I also remove the protective screen? If I remove it can I put it back on? I am going to get some Paradigm speakers, and I am currently looking at Monitor 7's for my L/R, a CC-370 for the center and I was recommended Titans for the surround. I would like to upgrade to Mini-Monitors for my surrounds, is that a wise move or is it just throwing away money? I'm going to get a subwoofer, and I'm not going to get a paradigm. I've seen some recommended here, I believe they have the Shiva driver? However, would I be better off getting a rear center before I get a sub? Should I get a rear center at all? The local sales guy recommended a Marantz DVD player, however it was $600 dollars. That seems a little too pricey for a DVD player? Are Marantz DVD players that much better. The salesman also recommended a Marantz receiver. He said that the power is cleaner and because Paradigm speakers aren't efficient it is important to run a good receiver. I've seen other people recommend a Denon receiver, I can't remember the model though. I spend most of my time watching Movies or playing games, although I do like watching sports and other shows. I really want a good setup for watching 28 Days Later, as the music is key to the enjoyment of the film. I would also like this to handle music well. I like all types of music, with the exception of country, but I would like jazz and classical to sound the best. I am interested in SA CD's and DVD Audio, but I don't have to have them, and won't if it will cost an arm and a leg.
