It's been my dream to put in a nice home theater system in the basement, and recently my wife has become accepting (actually, a bit positive!) on the idea. So I need to get working on this before she changes her mind. I've currently got a setup in my living room with a 36" Panasonic superflat, a Sony DE-925 receiver, Pioneer 434 DVD, Infinity minuet surrounds and center, Infinity BU-120 sub, plus a first-gen ReplayTV (which we love, except that the video quality sucks). I want to step up to something a lot nicer, and I arbitrarily put a $10K limit on my spending (and I'd be happy to spend less!). Here's what I'd like to get for my 10K: HD TV (DPL?) Receiver speakers (at least 5.1) DVD player a DVR that lets me playback in HD Cables Stands for speakers and racks or stands for the TV and other electronics I'm overwhelmed by the number of choices and possibilities and I'd love to hear any suggestions, even general ones, about what to get. I'd like to listen to the sound system and view the TV before purchase, so that probably means a local dealer. I'm also concerned about ongoing maintenance (not wanting to spend $600 a year for bulbs on a CRT set, for example). I've heard some Paradigm speakers that sounded nice (but the reference speakers sounded a lot better than the monitors, especially when hooked up to Rotel tuner and amp). Also some M&K speakers that weren't bad, but they were at a different store, so I couldn't compare. I'd value any or all suggestions for brands or models to consider, TV technologies and sizes that might be better, stores in the Portland, OR area to check out, and other resources to consider. Oh yeah, my viewing area in the basement is about 15' deep by 12-1/2' wide. 7.5' ceiling.
