Looking for TV suggestions

I'm looking for a good inexpensive TV. I don't understand anything much about HDTV, LCD, WS and all the hoopla, but I want good picture quality and something that actually doesn't make my stereo look cheaper than it actually is (it's hooked up to a 10 year old RCA tv... yay!). I want to spend around 1000$ (US) and the smallest TV I will take is 27''. Any suggestions? Bear in mind I live in Canada so don't have any Best Buy to go to to get a deal, assume I will be paying full price (actually, I'm buying furniture to furnish my house so I'll be haggling a deal on the TV in the price).

My system :

Paradigm Monitor 7 mains
Paradigm CC-170 Center
Paradigm Titans rears
Paradigm PW-2500 Subwoofer
Denon POA-3200 Receiver
Sony DVP-C600D Dvd player

I've had great luck with a couple of Toshibas....their 36" sets are well below the $1000 mark.

All right, I'll give it a shot.

Well, I know the $1199 samsung 30" ws, but that was at bestbuy.
I don't really know of that many TVs that is in ws for under $1k.
I'd recommend you get the sony wega. I think they are around $800 for 30", not ws but still has compo outputs, which is what you'll want. I don't know where to get one in canada, since you can see my location.

What percentage DVD/TV do you watch? Do you have cable/sat/rabbit ears? Have you considered ordering a TV online? My recommendation:

A 36" Sony Wega for around $1100 online.
