    Hi guys,
    This is my first post on this forum, and I know nothing much at all about TVs or home theater stuff. I'm thinking of getting a new TV and maybe a surround sound system. For the TV here are the models I was thinking of:

    Hitachi 65SWX20B
    RCA HD65W140
    Sony KP65WV700
    Toshiba 65HDX82

    And for the surround sound packages these are the models:

    Sony DAVC990
    Polk Audio DS7200
    Panasonic SC-DT300

    Could you guys tell me whats the best from those and maybe some pros and cons for each system. Also if there is maybe some other brands or products I should be looking at as well.
    Thanks for all your help everyone.

    Shaun

    Im a newbie at this but i've done countless hours of research on the subject. Consensus is that the hitachi is best followed closely by the toshiba. Then the sony followed by the RCA. I'm extremely happy with my toshiba 57hdx82 and it costs about 500 dollars less than the hitachi.

    hi shaun -
    i'm going to give a strong push for the hitachi. i read a recent review from sght that basically *glowed* on the 51SWX20B. the reviewer essentially said it was one of the best he's ever seen, etc. i posted this question about the tv.
    i'm assuming those system's you listed at htb's. i'm not familiar with them, but i'll give a slight nod towards the polk. i'll bet they've got the best speakers of the three.
