    Hey guys, I'm new 'round these parts. I joined up because I'm soon going to be purchasing a high-quality television and I know you're the guys to turn to for recommendations.

    Basically, I'm open to any suggestions. The only caveats I have is I'm looking to spend around $2700 canadian at most. For americans, prices don't simply translate based on the current exchange rate, i.e. a tv you could get for $2300 american I could probably get for $2600 canadian. Other than that though, I'm open to any brand, and any size of tv(although price limits me to about 50-inch and under presumably). I'm hoping to get a widescreen, although a 4:3 display is fine too if it really blows me away(like Sony's 40-inch XBR's, although those are too pricey).

    The sets I've already done a lot fo research into are Toshiba's 34-inch Cinema Series widescreens(the new 34HFX83) and many of Sony's 50-inch RPT widescreen displays. But as I said, I'm open to any suggestions, so fire away. Any thoughts you guys have would be great!

    Well, quite a bit is personal choice and your budget. Shop around, do not go to only one store. Research on sites like hometheaterspot.com, keohi.com, and avsforum.com. Bigger does not always translate into better.

    Personally, I went for a Pioneer Elite (a little pricer than most and out of your range) but as soon as I hooked it up, I knew I made the right choice.

    Good luck and welcome aboard!
