    Moving into a townhouse this summer and was wanting to build a small home entertainment system. Sadly I can only go 3.0 right now. Everything will be connected up with HDMI through the reciever and I will but converting the exsisting TV cabinet so that it will be able to have a TV mounted in the front.

    Main Components
    TV - SHARP LC-37D42U 37" AQUOS Widescreen LCD TV
    [​IMG]

    Reciever - ONKYO TX-SR604B 7.1 Channel Home Theater Receiver
    [​IMG]

    DVD Player - ONKYO DV-SP404B Component DVD Player ( Black )
    [​IMG]

    Front Speakers - JBL STAGE Venue Series Speaker
    [​IMG]

    Center Channel - JBL VOICE Venue Series Center Channel Speaker
    [​IMG]

    Power Protection - MONSTER CABLE MPHT800HP Home Theater Power Center

    TV Mount - Sanus VM200B

    Everything Ronin said is spot on. I have an Onkyo 603 receiver, and it's nice, but if you can pick up a Denone or Pioneer for the same price, you're better off. And as far as DVD players, your best bet is an HTPC, but aside from that, the Oppo is one of the best upconverting DVD players on the planet. There is a Denon that it is better, but it's a thousand or more higher than the Oppo. for that money, you could get an HD-DVD player, which supposedly upconverts almost as well, and still have money left over.

    And yes, anything Monster FTL.

    i find that denon amps have a different sound than the onkyo... denon amps tend to sound better for music as opposed to video....
