    My first post here although I have been a "lurker" for some time. Please give me your honest opinions. I am pretty settled on everything except receivers, but the Denon keeps coming out on top from all the comments I have read here. The Wega is on layaway until my custom oak stand is completed in a week or so. I decided to have one built because of the extreme weight of the Wega and not being able to find anything to my liking. I apologize in advance if any of my questions or comments seem naive, I am new to all this and sincerely would appreciate your help. I'm sure I will have many questions after this thread. Thanks!!
    Sony Wega KV36FV27($1599,no taxes,delivery included)
    Panasonic RP91 DVD ($389, no taxes)
    Energy Take 5.2 System with Sub (will order from soundpros unless I find a better deal)
    Receivers:
    Denon 3802 ?
    Onkyo TXDS595 ?
    Onkyo TXDS696 ?
    Outlaw 1050 ?
    Here's where I really need help. I like Pro-logic II and will probably go with the 3802 or the Onkyo 696. What's a good match for the Take 5.2 system? Thanks and please comment. I really want your opinion!!! Any good e-tailers for the Denon, Onkyo, or Energy's?? Soundpros seems good and I have read good comments about them on this forum. Let me know.

    If your are thinking about the Onkyo 696 now is the time to jump on Circuit City's misprice? of $549.99 as mentioned in another post. Wish I had my tax rebate in my hand because That's the receiver I'd gab at that price.

    If your budget is too tight for the 696, I would suggest the 595. I ordered mine from OneCall and was very happy with the transaction. You should be pick it up from them for less than $400 plus shipping.

    As a former resident of Niceville and student at OWJC, I highly suggest you totally re-think the TV.
    I own the Toshiba 56H80, it's great!

    Hi Jeffrey, I bought my Energy Encore Speakers from Home theater specialists they should have the Take 5.2's they gave me the best price and I did some searching. You can contact them at PH.407-251-1250 or FAX at407-251-4514 EMAIL is [email protected] They beat everyone's price by $200. I haven't heard the 5.2's yet but I really like my Encore's compared to the old model Take 5's. They cost me $890. + shipping. Good luck with your shopping

    I'd love to find out where you're getting the Panasonic RP91 for that price. The best prices I've found are $100 more than that.
