So I don't know much more than the basics...I have a set of Bose 301 IV's and smaller 161's...no center channel and an older AIWA sub (haha). I have a decent Sony Receiver (which I really wish I could find my manual so I can program the remote! GRR) and a decent sony DVD player. Not sure of the model number off the top of my head....BUT, I'm thinking of investing in a new TV...not sure what's what, I've done some looking around...pricing....etc...And so far this Sony 51" Hi-Scan 1080i CRT Rear-Projection HDTV with Enhanced Memory Stick Slot Model: KDP51WS655, at best buy seems pretty nice. It's on the Best Buy site...I'd post a link but I don't have enough posts yet Just looking for some input since I'm not that educated yet when it comes to all this. But there seems to be a typo since part of the description says "HD Built in" and "HD Ready"....but for $1799 it seems fair. Or I could be wrong...Plus it would help if someone could explain to me the difference between HD Built in and HD Ready...if it even matters that much. THANKS!!
