Well I've been watching this model for a bit (finished the HT room a couple months ago) and with the new version (8030) coming out I think I found a good deal, $250 delivered. I decided to go with the JVC componets because I like the idea of setting up the Compulink so my wife and oldest son (4) can run the equipment. I currently have JBL N38 fronts, N series center, and N 24 surrounds set up for a 5.1 system. I'm running a panisonic 62 DVD player, Panisonic VCR, and Time Warner Digital cable. My TV is a 27" Philips. I plan on moving the panisonic stuff and the 27" TV upstairs and replacing it within the next year. I'm looking at the JVC FA900BK DVD player, JVC 3901U VCR, and I haven't decided on the HDTV yet. I'm looking at th 55" to 57" range. So far the Hitachi has caught my eye. I haven't really looked at the new 56" JVC yet. If anyone is currently running JVC components with the comuplink I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences on it.
