Here is a bit of an odd question for everyone: what recommendations do you have for A/V receiver, subwoofer, and Television for a mountain home that is "off the grid".

The home is powered by a combination of solar, battery, and generator. I'd like to have an okay/decent setup for watching movies and sports, but I must first and foremost give thought to power consumption.

TVs: I figure the lowest power flavors are all going to be LED -- right or wrong in my thinking here? The next practical problem is viewing angle. The room is 25 feet wide and 18 feet deep -- the TV mounts on the wall about center (13 feet) and above the door. With width of the room I think I need something with fairly solid viewing angle. The last practical problem is light/screen glare -- the room has lots of floor to ceiling windows. Picture quality is high on my list, while 3D and internet capable are low. Here are the ones I have on my short list:
1. Samsung UN46ES7500
2. LG 47LM6700
3. Toshiba 46L5200
4. LG 47CS570

A/V receiver: I'd like it to be able to run 2 zones (one 5.1 zone, and one stereo zone). Power consumption is the key here. I don't have a short list created yet.
Subwoofer: I am going to have to compromise here as power consumption is key, but the room volume is large (25x18 with 15ft ceilings). No short list yet.


Thanks for the help!
