    I've already ordered the Onkyo SKS-HT240 speakers (I used the C-net review), Denon 3805, and Optoma H27. I just found this forum (maybe a little late, oops!).

    I did some research, mostly c-net and tried to pick good stuff. Have I screwed up with my purchases or am I on the right track?

    I've got a basic progressive scan dvd player (can't remember the brand right now) and direct tv rcvr d10-200 (s-video out).

    Should I get the denon dvd or another brand? I also didn't order the direct tv hdtv. I just didn't know enough to even consider it when I ordered it! Can I upgrade to direct tv hdtv and is it worth it?

    I've got "Screen Goo Silver Lite" and want about a 70 in diagonal picture. I've ordered an Inmounts brand ceiling mount. I'm new to this stuff but I've read lots lately. I liked the smaller speakers because of their low profile and the stuff I read on c-net made them sound really good. I know they are 6.1 and my rcvr can do 7.1.... If you were buying speakers but liked the compact or good looking styled speakers what would you recommend. I ordered them from Vanns and they seem like a super vendor, very quick and really on the ball!

    My room is 14 x 22 vaulted ceiling with my seating planned about 14 ft back in the 22 ft direction. I just bought this house and it has a perfect home theater room, with a nice wall with high windows on the viewing screen (it has an exterior rock wall outside). It is a separate room from the main house and when I looked at it I said to myself "finally get the HT of my dreams".

    Thanks you so much for any suggestions you might have.

    Those are very low end speakers. They are not bad for a HTIB but I would never buy them as seperates.

    Hi,

    U appear to have u'r budgets reversed. Instead of spending a $1000 on u'r receiver and $300 on the speakers u should do the opposite.

    As for the DVD player, the difference in quality between a cheapo $50 player and a good $400 one is going to be a lot less obvious unless u have a really good display unit (TV, projector) so save u'r money on the DVD player.

    njoy
