Really nice. Mirage speakers are excellent. What does the AVS500 5.1 setup cost?

I prefer the Onkyo SR600 to the Denon 1802, but they are both great receivers.

Is the 42" HDTV size based on room size or budget or both?

Have you looked at the Panasonic RP-62 and RP-82 DVD players?

Overall, these products seem like solid choices.

well I decided to go with the 42" cuz my friend talked me into it
and cuz it only cost a little more than the 36" Flatscreen HDTV I wanted to get, as for the audio setup, HIFI Buys got a package
that includes the Denon and Mirage+sub for $1000, I think that's a pretty good deal right?

As for the DVD player, I really just want something that'll do mp3,svcd,dvd,progressive scan. would u suggest the panasonic?

also I'mondering if my PS2 and Gamecube will look ok in Widescreen

thanks

Sounds like a good deal. I'm not sure what the retail price on that Mirage setup is though.

The Panasonic players are excellent for everything you mention except SVCD, perhaps the only thing they don't support.
