Hi, I just had a burglary at my house. I lost my 5 year old Yamaha HT amp, cd player and speakers, a 2 year old Epson EMP-TW10 PJ, and a Pioneer dvd player. Insurance thankfully will cover replacement costs, so now I want to work out how to spend the money the most effectively (don't know how much yet). I'll be getting a another PJ (of course!). I've been looking at the Panasonic AE900, or maybe AE700. I want to know what features are essential in a DVD player, and in a HT receiver. ie: progressive scan, what inputs/outputs, DTS etc. - What things make the most difference in picture and sound quality, and are offer the best bang for the buck? What things are absolute necessities? What things can be safely left out of an HT system, without making a huge difference? I'll be on a budget, so I want to spend only on things I'll really need. I'll mostly be watching DVDs. I will also use the system for some music listening, but I will be happy with "decent" stereo sound. By the way, the setup is in a very large room - bigger than most double garages (longer), and I have a 120" screen, so obviously I'll be looking for a fairly powerful amp and speakers. Any help/suggestions much appreciated!
