My Home Theater Upgrade

Got the bug to finally upgrade my ancient, POS, Koss theater-in-a-box DVD player, with a real dedicated home theater setup. Knowing there's some avid A/V guys here, thought I'd share what I've finally settled on.

My starting point is a 61" Samsung HL61A750 LED DLP, which I picked up a few years ago & am happy with. To that, I think I'm going to add on the following:

- Denon 2312
- KEF KHT 5005.2 Speaker Package
- Sony BDP-S590 Blu-Ray Player

Via Accessories4Less.com, I can get the first two at an excellent price. Will also probably pick up a Logitech Harmony - either a One or 900.

Any thoughts & feedback, before I pull the trigger?

I can't agree more.

Dante: [to Randal] You never go ass-to-mouth!
Randal: [to Dante] Would you grow up!
Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

LOL, doubt a 61" DLP wouldn't fit into his little man closet.
