I am new to Home Theater, but anxious to get my feet wet! I am currently in the process of refinishing about 1500 SF of basement space, and I'm lucky enough to have a sliver of the space allocated to a media/home theater room. This space will be approx. 13'x 23' x 8'. I now have the daunting task of selecting the components that will comprise my system. I have investigated several screen alternatives (and have viewed many commentaries on this site), and I am leaning towards a Phillips/Marantz PV6480W. Anyone have any opinions on this unit? I am able to get a factory refurbished unit for 1/2 the retail price...any concerns there? I like the screen size and picture quality this unit provides. My primary picture experience will be via cable or DSS signal. I also hope to enjoy DVD's and limited HDTV channels (currently 2 in my area) on this unit. This will be my first experience with theater sound, so where should I begin? My original budget allowed for the same dollars allocated to screen, rcvr/dvd, and speakers. Because I currently have a blank slate (both physically in the unfinished basement, and figuratively within my lack of knowledge/experience), I would like to ensure that I make sound decisions at this time to obtain an environment that will make my experience a real delight. Kudo's in advance for any assistance that you all can provide...K!
