Digital pic's from my Toshiba 50H81

For those interested, I created a webpage with 17 digital images from my new Toshiba 50H81, including 3 images from a random TV commercial/news via an outside TV antenna.

I can not tell you how nice that looks. I am so envious.

How happy are you with your JBL speakers? I owned a set of JBL satallite and Sub, but one of the satallites blew. I was thinking about staying with JBL but I ended up with a pair of Klipsh Book Shelf speakers.

Enjoy your setup, I love it.

Thanks guys! Last NITE's DVD Movie (I usually have once or twice a month a Friday NITE DVD Movie) was "Rush Hour (#1)" with another family that wanted to see it for the first time. I had 9 family and friends over and the Toshiba 50H81 didn't disappoint in blowing them all away with the super sharp, crisp and dynamic 2.35:1 color presentation w/REF Level Cinema Theater playback sound!!!

How happy are you with your JBL speakers?
Love them - owned since April '00, and my regular Friday NITE DVD Movie family & friends all keep wondering when I'm going to start charging them an admission fee?? How much are turn-stile's???

For more JBL INFO and review links (including mine), see my webpage Why you should add JBL N & S Series to your audition list!

How much did you pay? Where at?
Internet e-tailer' for $2,075.00 (Free Shipping, no CA tax) from Continental Trading of USA, Inc., based in Brooklyn, NY.

Ordered HDTV: July 23, 2001 (shipped from Atlanta, GA)

I heared the NSP1's at a store and i really like them. My brother in law is looking at getting some klipsch Quintet but I am thinking about telling him to go with the NSP1's. I think the JBL's will be a better value.

Don't get the Klipsch Quintet! You are gonna regret it, they are too small non-theaterical sounding. Get bigger speakers. I know there are certain tiny subsat systems that acoustically they blow out the big ones, but this package ain't it. Get the JBL's.

By the way, I have the Klipsch Reference Series, I can't imagine how awesome that 50X81 set must look near my black towers!

You're welcome dani-wan! The Yamaha & JBL combo is very impressive and dynamic - as long as your neighbor's don't mind!

Anyway, . . . glad to help consumer's obtain the best sound performance for their hard-earned cash!!!

Judging by your pics..I can see on your video/audio shelve near the set, that you also have a Sony 560D DVD Player? Am I correct?

Also, those images (Toys Story, Galaxy Quest, Rush Hour images) are from a progressive player?

Also, I found out, I am not far away from Bedford, which is the store that sells this cute set. I think like I am 10 stops from my train station.

P.S: Where did you get the "Now Playing" DVD holder stand?

It's a Panasonic DVD-RV31K . . .

. . . are from a progressive player?
. . . using component-video outputs only.

NOTE: I originally used the $20.00 Sony Video cables, then replaced them with the $30 (Best Buy) AR Component Video and it does make a difference in the overall picture quality by tightening up the vertical sharpness in the image.

Bigsteele answered your ""Now Playing" DVD holder stand" question - they updated the stand since I bought it!

Ahhh..the Panasonic. It has a strong resemblance to the Sony 560D.

I see. Thanks again!

Pestilence,

I was looking into getting the Klipsch reference series speakers.
How do you like yours? What reciever are you running them with?

This is what i was looking at

RF-3 $349 each (mains)
RS-3 $479 pair Surround
RC-3 $299 center
KSW-10 $279 Sub

than i was looking to get some reciever for about $600

I still dont know which RPTV i want to get either

I have some JBL's now. Are Klipsch better?

I just saw this tv for the first time in person at local SEARS.
Damn tempting to upgrade my 40" (although I'd have to sell the 40" and just pay the "difference" since I can't afford EVERYTHING).

And especially tempting since Sears price matches the internet prices!

Sorry for the late reply! I missed your post.

I love my Reference Series. This is truly a theater setup having these types of great speakers. The sound is so rich and detailed. The RF-3 pump massive bass, and the center does a great job too of dialog. The surrounds are incredible. The enveloping field of these surrounds is awesome because it gives you the impression that you have extra surround speakers at the back.

I payed for the entire set $1,300 from J&R Computer world.

Jandr.com

I am running my set on a Yamaha 795 DTS/DD receiver. An old receiver, but does a great job.

You're making a huge leap from sub/sat to Floorstanding big setup Reference Series.
