    Me not respond to a TV thread? That's impossbile!

    I am not a fan of the WEGA TVs at all. For the money you pay, the picture is very grainy.

    My suggestion: pick up and XBR if you have the money. If you don't, then put your cash towards a Hitachi or Panasonic set. Better picture for your money if you are in and around the $1,500 price range.

    I am sure I'll get arguements from those than own WEGA TVs about how they are "the best", but when it comes to the actual quality of the picture, those "black bars" inbetween the pixels are very noticeable.

    BTW, the appropriate TV size is dependant mainly on the distance you will be sitting from it. If you have a large room, a 32 or 36 inch unit is great. But if you are sitting only 7-8 feet from your TV, then that is too big and will strain your eyes.

    But for most rooms, a 27 inch TV will be adequate.

    well, think 13 inches times 2, and there you go.

    Not quite. A 27 inch TV has more than 4x the screen surface area of a 13 inch TV.

    I like Sony too. I have one myself. But I dislike the WEGA series and feel it is over-priced and plays up the "it's a Sony flat screen" angle as its main selling feature.

    Put an Sony XBR series TV next to a WEGA series TV and compare the two. You instantly notice how crappy the WEGA's picture is.

    I'm only pissed cause I know you are right. The XBR is one beautiful TV. I just find that its best to use all one brand for a system to avoid problems. I find that Sony has the best complete package of products.

    If you know what you are doing then you can mix and match but I wouldn't suggest that to to many people. And then there is the problem of even finding the components you want. Pain in the ass.

    Huh? That's the whole point of "component" systems. You can use any components that you like. Hooking a Harman/Kardon DVD player up to a Sony TV is no different than hooking up a Sony DVD player to a Sony TV.

    Selecting a receiver, speakers, television, and DVD player are all independent choices for the most part. All that is required to connect them are standardized cables. There are the very rare compatibility problems that can crop up when matching certain DVD players to certain receivers, but for 99% of the combinations out there, everything will work fine.

    I posted some links to the Canadian prices of the XBR series.

    Yeah, I debated on wether or not to get that model. Nice large screen, but it is still a rear projection model (but still the best rear-projection I have ever seen). In the end, I decided to go with the lasrgest picture tube that was available at the time in the XBR series (36 inch). Of course now they have a 40 inch out. Anyone wanna buy a used TV? LOL

    I should have clarified. The TV is a big part of it as its the end visual medium. If you're tv only takes an rca imput then its not the greatest thing to build a home theatre around. S-video is good but component is better. Most people understand that. With the amp there are a few things to consider. Does it take a digital imput? Does it configure for smaller speaker applications like satellite speakers? That was one of my deciding factors. Theres just a lot of little things to consider.

    jeremy -so many little decisions one big choice- jive

    theres not much room, with electronics, basically the sale price is close to cost and that is with all electronic manufacturers

    the most you can push is an extra 50 off, and thats if your lucky
