    I bought a 57H81 and I can exchange it for a 57H82, should I? From what I've read here the 82 model is upgradeable to DVI. Are there any other important differences?
    Also there is a Bose speaker system for $399 at BB is it any good?
    Thanks

    You gotta love how Greg gets to the point.
    basically I am agreeing with Greg here, upgrading to the 82 if you can is worth it just for the DVI, as much as I hate it, you may be glad you have it in a few years.
    as far as the Bose speakers, well I ahve never been the elast bit impressed by bose, they seem to be vastly overpriced for what they produce. as well I assume you are talking in american dollars. for that much money I would suggest you toss a bit more cash at it and go with some PSB speakers. I absolutely LOVE mine, and I ahve never ehard a negative complaint about PSB. if you search thsi forum you would probably find some rather irate people whenever bose is mentioned. [​IMG]

    Yes, exchange the TVs.

    Go somewhere other than BB for the speakers.

    Cheers,

    I would second the PSB's, I've got the Alpha mini's in the front and the alpha mites in the back. These along with an alpha center and a Psb Subsonic sub and I' real happy. This is much better than the Bose and cheaper. Good luck on whatever you chose!

    Well, I took the 57H81 back they did'nt have an 57H82 in stock so I went to Amarican TV. I bought a 57HDX82 fo $5.00 less then the 57H81. MUCH better picture, and DVI ready. Thanks again!
