    I have a kenwood htb504 and a 25in tv hooked up to DVD player with an RF modulator. I have a $800 upgrade limit should i just get a 32in flat screen tv with anamorphic squeeze like JVC AV32f703 or a regular 32in with component video and the JBL NSP1 speaker system? I watch a lot of DVD and DSS. I like both picture quality and sound quality. The speakers i have now arent very good and I know im missing a lot of good picture quality. Any advice welcome...thanks

    I think you're already leaning in the direction I would advise: Your television is in most dire need of replacement, and I would go for one with the vertical raster compression (like the JVC you mentioned). Right now, this is your highest priority.

    Normally, I'd say speakers in a situation like this, but in your case, I'd have to agree the TV needs to be upgraded first.

    You will gain some clarity, but not a lot more impact, from the NSP-1 package. I'd say get a decent TV now, and save for better speakers down the road.
