Got married....Convinced the new wife for new hardware!!!

July 13th I got married....It was a great time and I am extremely happy.

My wife and I made out pretty good on the amount of gifts...For a while now I have been talking about upgrading the home theater in my our apartment.

So anyway, yesterday I met her at Tweeter...and we did some shopping.

At Tweeter we bought a Mitsu WS-55859.....
Later on that night I bought a Harmon Kardon AVR 520 receiver new off the net.

I am pretty damn happy right now.....I dont know when I was happier...the wedding day or yesterday when I had vivid images of a 55 inch WS TV sitting in my living room. MMMMMMMM GOOOD!

What do you think about the new set up?

I think you still need a few components.... like.... speakers, DVD player, 8-track tape player and a Pronto remote!







Good job my man! Sounds like you've got a great system in the works!

Sorry man...forgot to say originally that I am upgrading my current system.

I have JBL 810 book shelfs for my front and rear speakers.
JBL S-Center 2 Center Channel
JBL 75 watt sub
Pioneer DVD Player - I believe its the 525
and my DVD collection is at 310 titles. LOL

And yes....since the TV is being delivered Thursday I will be buying a Progressive scan DVD player before then.

You are right about the ring though...hard to believe that the little ring cost twice what "my"....ooops I mean "our" new TV cost.

That only lasts for the first round of component upgrades. After that prepare to get new furniture if you want something new.

I dont know what your price range is, but I have been using a compbination of Mirage, Martin Logan, and B&W, and love them. Especially the sub. It is unbelievable. Congrats on the wedding.

Congrats! Sounds like some good stuff.


Getting married soon myself.

Just purchased a new home and moved in with her and her two kids.

I decided the only way I was gonna get what I wanted was to buy it before I moved in

Upgraded my TV to a Toshiba HX 50" widescreen and surround speakers to Polk FX 300i's.

This home is adequate. We're planning on building in the future and I've already planted the seed of a dedicated home theatre room...just gotta wait 5 years
