    After many questions (answered by these forums!) and tons of research here is what I got:
    Harmon Kardon AVR 520
    JBL S38II Front L/R
    JBL SCII Center
    JBL N24II Rear L/R
    Dahlquist 15" subwoofer
    Panasonic R82 DVD player
    Paid $1574 delivered.
    All of it came from www.JandR.com except the sub!
    I can't wait to set it up!
    Of course I will have many questions on how to do so! [​IMG]

    Sounds good Tray,
    Now the fun begins [​IMG]
    Set up is fairly straight forward, but and SPL meter and calibration disk (i.e. Avia or Video Essentials) is considered by most here to be a crucial "upgrade".
    Good Luck,
    Bill

    Another good setup disc that is substantially cheaper than the ones recomended is Sound and Vision Home Theater Tune Up. I's made my ovation, the same company that makes Avia, and has all the test tones, clibrations, AV tests, advanced tests, and demonstrations that you would need. It retails for $20 and can be found for much less. I got my copy on ebay for $6. This combined with an analog SPL meter from radio shack is really a necesity for properly calibrating a quality home theater system.

    Congratulations on the purchase and have fun.

    Second the Video Essentials or AVIA and the SPL meter.
