been a lurker for awhile now...got some great advice regarding my polk speakers and onkyo receiver...just can't seem to pull the trigger now on a plasma TV... through a family member who works at CC, i can get a $2000 discount on a sony KDE-50XS955 50" plasma screen TV...i've done the comparisons with the sony XBR and the panasonics, and like this set. so, instead of the list price of $7000, i can get it for $5000. i'm curious to what others think...also, what cables would suffice (CC sales guys are always trying to get me to buy the monster surge supressor, etc.)...through my family member, i can get them for about 50% off. thanks!
