A coworker who is *really* excited about HT has been given a $500 limit by her husband (grrr) for their new TV for the basement rec room. They've got a DVD player and seating distance will be around 6-8 feet away from the set. She's aware of 16x9 aspect ratio sets and would love one but this budget seems like it might make that impossible. So...what can we do? How big can we go? Can we get 16x9 resolution for anamorphic DVD? I'm thinking a 27" Sony Wega might work cuz of the 16x9 compression and generally great picture. Is there a TV out there I'm missing? Is there a 16x9 SD or HD set that's in the ballpark (even if a little higher)??? Thanks!!!
