    that's a good tv but it's somewhat outdated by some of
    Sony's newer and less expensive sets, specifically the XS series. I'd spend less on the tv and get the XS model and definitely more on the speakers. You are not gonna find a decent 7.1 speaker setup for under $500.

    That Sony ES receiver is also ok, but again there are cheaper models from other mfgs that will work just as well.
    A Pioneer 1015 would probably work just fine for you for about half the price of that Sony.

    Check out the Onkyo 770 system for your sound duties, it more than satisfies most owners. and is a complete package including a fairly respectable subwoofer even.

    As said about the display, but maybe you are getting a screaming deal on it, if so, go for it.

    The Sony sound stuff in that price range doesn't really cut it for many people.
