    Well I originally was going to get the Tosh65' but I want to go that extra mile. What set would make my HT shine?

    A Pioneer Elite PRO-720HD would be just outside your price range (by about $1000). Their PRO-620HD would not be.

    However, because size does matter, check out their non-Elite SD-643HD5. A very, very nice TV IMHO.

    Mitsubishi's Diamond-line is also in that price range.

    The Philips 64PP9751 64" RPTV with 9" CRT's might be a good choice at just over $3100.

    You can still get that extra mile out of the Toshiba if you get it professionally calibrated and you would have some money left over.

    Pioneer Elite. In my opinion the hands down winner.

    Get the Tosh, tweak the heck out of it, then have the ISF guy come in and do a FULL calibration with all the extras...
    The tweaks and cal will give you that $10,000 picture. [​IMG]

    I second what Aaron has to say. When people are spending over 2K, WHY would they get a TV? (Not commited to HT I guess)

    That's a divisive comment and smacks of elitism... There are lots of reasons "WHY" people choose TVs over front projection. And most of them have absolutely nothing to do with being [sic] "commited" to HT.

    Frankly, I don't think you could get even CLOSE to the picture quality I have right now with an FPTV setup costing only $2K... used OR new components.

    And remember, not all of us have unfinished basements, or extra bedrooms, or a lot of square footage to setup a projector and screen. That doesn't mean we aren't serious about the home theater experience.

    I think 'not commited to hometheather' means not JUST for HT. As in something that will be in a living room and used for regular TV viewing. If the overwelming use of it is for HT, you ought to find some way to make at FP. If it's used quite a bit for casual TV viewing too, then perhaps not.
