Ok, right now I have a JVC 27", toshiba sd-1200, and the Kenwood htb-503. I've recently scored a better paying job and I want to soup up the basement with a better home theater for hanging out with buds and watching movies/playing videogames. I'm looking for the best value with decent quality. Here are some good buys from what I've gathered on this forum: TV: Looking for an HD-ready set no more than $2000. Would be nice to go higher than 40" diag but I've been hearing great things about this set... -http://www.toshiba.com/tacp/tv/40H80.html Thanks! btw- I don't know if this will help at all but I play a good amount of videogames. One of the reasons I want to go HD is because the Gamecube will support 480p on all of its games & GT3 supports 16:9.
