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.
