I'm wanting to take the plunge into home theater and HDTV but I have not the foggiest idea of what to buy.
Actually I lie, I know exactly what I would get if I had $5000+ to spend. However my budget is more the $1500-$2500 for the whole thing.
Note that I need in addition to the TV itself at least: a DVD player, A/V receiver, and speakers. None of the components I currently have (old DVD player and crappy stereo) are worth recycling really and I'd want to replace any I kept even on an interim basis.
I do know I don't want a tube TV or rear projector. I also want the best sound and video quality I can get for the money.
So what would you recommend?
