Last year around April, I bought what i thought would be my last television for quite some time. I have a friend on a VERY tight budget who was dying to have an hdtv. He offered me 800 for mine earlier this month (it was a 50H82). I told him that would be fine. (no way he would have been able to get one if i hadn't done this) so I ended up using that money towards a new Toshiba 57H83. So, lets see... since 1985 (Christmas time) I have owned the following tvs (all toshiba)a 19inch, 20 inch, 27 inch, 32 inch ,50 inch and now 57. I honestly don't forsee any upgrades for quite some time.. it is a blessing this time (DVI port and 720p support upconverted to 1080i. still looks fantastic!!) not to mention Since 1987 2 jvc recievers, 2 pioneer, and 2 yamaha (just upgraded to a DTS capable reciever) new dvd player after a magnavox, panasonic and toshiba now own a pioneer progressive player.. just upgraded the rear speakers as well.. anyone else as addicted as i am? I HOPE this will be it for a while. I do have another question. the speakers I have put out PLENTY of bass.. enough to rattle the walls. Do i really need a subwoofer? would there be that much of a difference? That would be (If i get one the last piece i would need..) any help would be great.
