Brand new to this forum, read through many posts, thought it may be easier to shorten my journey this way. I was hoping that someone out there has a similar setup to me and could offer sugestions. I had purchased a Yamaha YSP-1000, that was 2 weeks ago, it was an amazing product that truely will blow your mind when you hear it in the proper seting. Although, when I installed it in my situation, it was stellar on the left side of the room, but had a massive dead spot on the right where there was nothing to reflect off of. The next day, I returned to the home theater/audiophile store, and exchanged the unit (with some additional $$$ outlayed) for a Yamaha RX-V4600 receiver, and a Yamaha DVD-S2500 DVD player. I am completely stunned at the new look of the video, and sound compared to my last products. I'm now hooked,and realize that to fully take advantage of my new situation I will need to address my center, fronts, and surround speakers. Video upgrade will also be food for thought, I am currently using a 3 year old JVC 36" tube television, which has new life since the new DVD player has been addded. What I am looking for is some suggestions, for video display and speakers, from those who may have a similar setup? Also, what difference have any of you noticed going from component video to HDMI, especially on an LCD projection situation?
