Lets Talk about Home Entertainment Systems!

Ok, I have a 52" DLP LG T.V. and a 5.1 JPL sound system with a Denon Reciever. My JPL speakers are about 6 or 7 years old, and I want to get new ones. So, I want to see what you guys are running, what you think of your system and how much you spent.
Also, let me know what you use it for mostly i.e. Action Movies, Drama (lots of words) Music, or t.v.

-Mike

What Projector do you have? Also, what kind of reciever are you running?

How is AR's 7.1 system?

I'm running a Proxima Desktop Projector. I'm not sure of the specs. The Receiver is a Sony STR-DE835 Digital Audio Receiver.

The sound quality on the AR system is top notch.

On the wall, I have a 43" Pioneer 433cmx with a 5.1 setup running B&W Nautilus 805's with a HTM-2 center channel. Ths speakers are all powered by a Pioneer Elite receiver. I just installed a Panasonic AE900 Projector that shoots a 106" widescreen picture on a Dalite High Power screen. I just watched my 1st two movies tonight and it is incredible! The screen rolls down over my plasma. As soon as I paint the canopy, I will take some pics.

Ah... those are the speakers I want. I currently have B&W 602s for my bedroom setup.

My HT setup is a 45" Mitsubishi TV, Boston Acoustic sub/sat system powered with a Marantz receiver. I'd buy better speakers, but my family room is too tiny for anything bigger

I'm planning on getting a 50" plasma for the bedroom (to replace a 27" tube) Then upgrade my B&W 602s to 804s. My bedroom is 2-3x bigger then my family room.
