    Hi all,
    As the title shows, home theater is a new territory for me [​IMG].
    Basically, I need to learn the whole shabang. My folks recently bought a new HD ready TV, the actual title is:
    Sony 57" Hi-Scan 1080i™ 16:9 Projection Television
    KP-57WS500.
    So this thing is pretty much the largest and most advanced TV my family has ever owned. I mean we jumped from a 12 year old 26" TV to this. Now that we have this TV, I feel the need to modernize. Basically, we're running a cheap-o Apex DVD player and 12 year old sound system. I just don't know where to start.
    I've been trying to read up on home thater systems, but it's seriously all Greek to me. All the websites I visited assume you know what 16:9 and i/p is. Hence, I decided to join this forum and talk to some real people. I have a billion questions, but I guess the one to start off would be, what home theater system would fit this TV?

    Ah,
    Just saw the Beginner's Primer and FAQ at the top of the forum. Maybe this'll help me with my questions, eh? [​IMG]

    Mike- Welcome to the forum!

    Start with the FAQ- come back when you're done and we'd be happy to help! The FAQ AND PRIMER is a personal pet project of mine- so I'd love to hear your thoughts on stuff that was especially helpful or portions which were hard to understand.
