    Post what you're using, pics if you got 'em...


    TV: Samsung HL-P5663W 56" Widescreen HDTV Monitor TV with DLP

    Media Player: WD HDTV Media Player (for playing HD/BD without having to convert and burn), HDMI to TV, optical to receiver and a cheap Samsung upconvert DVD player.

    Receiver: Yamaha RX-V793

    Speakers: And a conglomeration of speakers - Bose 301 for the main (left/right in surround), some Kenwood center, JBLs satellites bringing up the rear, and a Kenwood sub enclosure with a Phase Linear 10".

    I've got a 40" Samsung LCD that I use as a computer monitor. I run all my media off my pc, so I use some logitech 5.1 surround speakers with it. Cheap as hell, but you'll never get better sound for the money (they were free)
    Only problem is with wiring the rear speakers, the cables aren't long enough, and I haven't had a chance to run wires through my walls yet.
    I dunno, the TV's in a corner, so that makes surround sound hard to set up.

    I'm running a 36" old school 150 pound TV, and a $300 surround system that came in a box. But I have furniture and wall decor. I'm happy with it.. Its not huge or HD, but it gets the job done. When this TV dies, I'm going to get a 40something inch samsung.. Whatever fits in the hole that my current TV is in. But the old 36 is a trooper, has been for the last 6? years. I don't forsee a TV purchase in the near future.
