That link does not have anything in the cart, just the message from the guy.
Sorry-I'll check the link.
Eh, screw it - here's the details:
56" high-definition 1080p rear-projection DLP TV $2,500
Polk Audio Monitor 30
Bookshelf speakers $200/pair
Polk Audio RC60i
In-ceiling speakers $200/pair
Polk Audio CS1
Center channel speaker $180
5-disc DVD/CD changer with digital video output and upconversion $150
Not necessarily looking to buy here, but a handy place to throw together a list.
Honestly, I would wait on the upconverting DVD player. This is for the new house right? Hopefully by then a real HD DVD player will be much cheaper. I mean, a good upconverting DVD player is at least $150. If the HD DVD players get down to ~$300-$350 then just get one of those instead, as they also upconvert DVD’s.
I am passing on the whole HD/Blue-Ray thing for now. Upconverted DVDs are just fine. Now, if something major happens in athe format war in the next couple months where one "wins", I'll change my tune. If not, I'll be happy with that.
I want a DLP - great picture and a decent price. The in-laws have one and I'm cool with the technology. The house will have a 8-ft wide "nook" for the entertainment system/TV, so plasma/LCD isn't an advantage space-wise.
A friend is going to give me an old projector for use in the garage, if I want. It isn't good enough for inside the house for day-to-day use.
Also note though, BestBuy and CircuitCity and the like almost every other month do deals on TV’s over $500 that there is no interest for 18+ months, so when you are ready to buy one I would look into that option.
Yeah, and the rewards points from BB with a purchase that large would be nice, too!
Edit - I have a Sony DVP-NC875V progressive-scan DVD changer now but am going to have a separate receiver hooked up to outside speakers on the rear patio and planned to use it for a CD changer. For that price, I'll get the upconverting DVD changer.
I am not really a Sony fan at all, but they had such a good sale a while back I got the receiver and DVD player on sale. Any other upconverting DVD changer for a similar price (of decent quality) would be fine. Any first hand experience with any of these speakers or TV?
