There's no question that the 5803/9000 combo will be awesome. I doubt very much you'd be able to buy these units together for less than $5000 street. Unless you really want the best of the best you'd be better off going with an Elite 49TX and a DV-47A for roughly $3700. Think of what you could do with that extra $1300!! I'm sure the 49TX will go toe to toe with the 5803 but the 47A vs. the 9000 won't be as close. I'm just not sold that the 9000 will be so overwhelmly better than the 47A (or whatever new reference dvd player Elite has in the works) to justify paying $1500 more for.
