Oh brother...... One thing that is SO overlooked hear is that all your product works as a package. You can make a B&W speaker sound like crap if you put a Jap Crap processor behind it or run Silver cables. You have to DESIGN your ENTIRE system to work TOGETHER. This does not mean that you have to buy it all at once but decide what you want and then buy the projuct that is in your design. I could NEVER recommend a speaker over the internet as there is one question that no one has asked that being WHAT DOES YOUR ROOM LOOK LIKE. What size is it, where is the TV located (corner, middle of the wall). Are the speakers in room, on shelf, or in wall? What is the size of the room and were are doors located........ You get the point. There are a lot of BAD speakers out there. Some of the best are the B&W's, Dynaudio, Wilson Audio, Triad, and so on. But they all must be used properly to get them to sound good.
Also don't be so concerned about your projector not shooting HDTV. You can still run HD to it (480P) and if it is properly set up you will be REAL happy with the picture.
My suggestion is if you do not have the time to sit down and do this correct now save the money and waite tell you do. You will get a much better finished product that you will enjoy for quite some time.
Hey Troutly you ready for the EAD Yet
