In light of the thread in reference to VHS, I'm curious about your first hi-fi vcr. My first hi-fi vcr was a Proscan #?. Got it in December 1999. Hooked it up to my first HT and I was impressed with the sound. The killer is after two S-VHS VCR purchases (3500 & 7600), I gave it to a friend when he bought his first HTIB.
