I am thinking about purchasing the following components to start my home theater system:

A/V Receiver - Onkyo TXSR804
Plasma Display - Panasonic TH-50PX60U
Surround Sound - Infinity TSS-750 5.1 Home Theater Speaker System

All comments are welcomed and appreciated

Thanks

The SR804 is a great receiver but it's probably a bit overmatched for those speakers. What's your budget? Around $1000 - $1200 for the speakers and receiver? It's usually suggested you spend abut twice as much on speakers as you do on a receiver. Something like a Onix X-series 5.1 setup and Onkyo SR674 would probably be a much more balanced system. Great speakers will sound great on a slightly lesser receiver... but a better receiver can't make lesser speakers shine.
