Well I am getting close to putting the last piece (at least for a while) of my Home Theater together. I have really settled on two brands, either the Pioneer Elite or the Mitsubishi (i am not sure what their top line is anymore). What I am hoping for is real in home experience (or close to it), the pros and cons of each and any other signifigant info you may have to offer. I am a Direct TV user about 60% watching regular tv and 40% watching DVD movies. I have visited Magnolia hi-fi which has the two modles in the same room and the Elites seem to be smoother but also carry a much higer price tag. I would be willing to pay the higher price tag if it gained me something more than a prety cabinet. I have also read that matching the Elite DVD player with the Elite tv smoothes out the picture even more. I talked for a little bit to a sales rep but would like to know from you what I should be asking and what lies I should be warey of. Thanks for all the help in advance.
