Okay, i am in the process of trying to do (2) systems in my home on a budget. One for bedroom use and one for the living room. Lets start with the bedroom... I currently have a 32" GE television and a Panasonic All in One SAHT-80 unit in there now which is going out with the garage sale stuff. I was thinking of doing a flatpanel 42" EDTV and bose 3-2-1 system in here until I found out the the 42"inch EDTV didn't have a tuner, so now I am looking at a panasonic 42"Plasma with the built in tuner and it also has quam among other things. I know there are some bose haters here but I need something simple in the bedroom that sounds good and has dvd/cd/radio functionality and not alot of wires & cables running everywhere. The living room is a little different... I currently have a toshiba 55inch projection in there that i am getting rid of and mostly sony equipment. The wall unit that i just purchased will hold a 60inch tv but the tv cannot have a base like most projection tv's have. The sony equipment i have for the most part sounds fine to me except i want it to have a little extra umph which is why I am willing to upgrade it. It does have one functionality that I would like to have in the new system (which is, being able to view cd and song titles in my remote window from the 300 disc cd changer). My total budget for all of this will be $8K and cannot exceed $10K. I am open to all and any suggestions as i would like this sytem in place by xmas.
