Well, im still really new to this forum, but i love it, you guys are all great, its so nice to get informed opinions, and thereby make myself more informed. so basically im going to give you a run down on what i have, my plans for future equipment, and i want your input, good bad or otherwise. let me know what you think i need what should be replaced down the road and so on. ok right now I have a 20" citizen tv (crap I know, but hey when i was 12 and i bought it, it was pretty damn good, and its still functional) I have a Sony Str-de445 reciever (in retrospect i should ahve informed myself more before i bought this, but im still happy with it.) I have PSB Alpha Intro line of speakers, and an alpha subzero subwoofer I also have a cheap sony vcr (personally i dont care to get a good one id rather watch dvd's) currently I watch my dvd's on my computer (i have a 19" flat screen monitor so its actually better than my tv) my next purchse is going to be a sony playstation 2 which I plan to use as my primary dvd player (im a big gamer so i figured this was a necessary step) and hopefully when i get my tax return (us students tend to rely on them) I plan to buy a good HDTV im currently looking at the sony Wega 32" XBR after that I have no idea what my next purchase will be so please feel free to say whatever comes to mind.
