Hello all, long time listener, first time caller. I'm moving in less than a month into a house that I made sure had a much better lay-out for my home theater (approx 15' wide by 35' deep) than my current. As part of the move I plan on upgrading some components in my current home theater my question is this, based on my current set-up which components would give me the biggest increase in enjoyability? I don't really want to spend more than $3k at this moment. I know better than to ask for brands because experiences and opinions vary, but any suggestions you make I'll take to my local dealers and listen/view. Current Equipment: Pioneer VSX-D608 (dolby digital, DTS receiver) Pioneer DVL-919 (DVD/LD combo player) Pioneer PDF-1007 (300+1 CD player) Sony SLV-960HF (Stereo VCR) Sony Trinitron (1993 27" TV) Bose Acoustimass 6 (5 single cube speakers) DCM SW10 Subwoofer Mitsubishi SR-SD1 (dolby digital DirecTV tuner) Right now the only thing I'm sure of is that the 1993 27" Sony trinitron without S-video inputs has to go. I'm thinking of going with the Pioneer SD-533HD5 which I'm projecting will cost me about 2,700 out the door. But is that putting all my money in one area when I could upgrade a few more items at the same time while still being able to get a 50" or bigger 16x9 HDTV. Also how realistic is it to use the TV as the center channel? Do any big screen tv's with a center channel mode do a good job? What I'm ok with right now is only having 5.1 surround, my subwoofer (though only a 10" I can't turn it up more than ½ volume now because it's too much), and my VCR. I'm also not concerned with upgrading to a HighDef DirecTV tuner since as I understand it they only offer two channels of HighDef anyway, the rest has to come from OTA antennaes. So I guess what it comes down to is the TV, the speakers, and the tuner. I'll admit the tuner doesn't have enough power (100w x 5). I tend to listen to it set on -20 to -15 when watching movies, but I do plan on moving up to DTS ES and THX EX which could cost as much as the TV. I know I could get great surround speakers for about $500 like the Polk Audio f/x 500i I installed for my father-in-law, but what's the use in great surround when I'd still only have the single cube bose upfront. Thanks! Any and all comments and suggestions appreciated.
