    The Sony Blue-Ray player.......on sale before Christmas 299.00....middle priced one....two years ago, this was over 1,000!

    what an amazing difference, plus because Blue-Ray won in a competition with HD, HD will be phasing out soon....movies are 1.00 more to rent than HD, but well worth it....and to buy blue ray movies, much the same as HD, some are more expensive, some are not......picked up KILL BILL 1 & 2 for 9.99 each!

    Options are plentiful now, like you said you can buy a much bigger one for the same....and with the recession on......prices have dropped even lower.

    You should go into one of your Sony stores and check them out.

    You should have seen the crowds at Circuit City going for the TV's when they started selling everything. I got out of there quick, it was a stampede!

    ours isn't a home theatre, just the t.v. and components.

    no dishwasher here either.....but it just us two, I would never be bothered to use it.

    I have a Panasonic and Im happy with it. I know Sony makes a nice set but Samsung Aquos just stands out above the rest when I compare all the pictures.
    My bottom floor is where Im set up for movies and music. Its 14' x 10' so I probably cant go more than 42".
    I was watching a Blu Ray dvd in the store and its almost scary. Almost too real.
    My receiver upconverts to 1080i but its nothing like true Blu.
    You didnt mention a sub. Critical component if you've already come this far.

    Likewise, you don’t need the full media centre anymore, the quality of TV, sound and equipment is great without the whole ‘movie theatre’ approach.

    I love my media player, all movies are downloaded and stored, they are digital so the quality is excellent. All my music is on it so my TV is also my stereo. My photos are on it so when not watching tv, the tv can also be a large picture frame displaying photos. They also take no space at all.

    I have attached a link to so an example of a media player.

    This is the way Im set up. The rear speakers fire downward and outward.
    The center channel (Infinity) is a mismatch from the front speakers (B&W) so thats the next change but everything is so expensive.
    I wanted to bury the rear speaker wire in the wall but its packed with insulation. Ive used these wire channels that you can see follow the ceiling then down the corner then behind the baseboards to the receiever. Its a clean installation and it was my only alternative. The tv used to be mounted on the wall but again I couldnt hide all the cables in the wall so I took it down and went with a stand.
