Well, what is most important is DVD and Sound capability... we already have some good headphones connected to an IR extension with this system, and, uh, there isn't a good set of multichannel headphones out yet; the sony one's suck, the akg one's suck, the good akg one's aren't out yet (and, what's more, even thebad akg ones aren't in the states, last I heard...), and the only way to get dolby headphone is one particular high-end denon Reciever, and I want a DVD/Reciever combo... which that one isn't.
Also, we want to put the rear speakers in the wall, against which the bed is set. Basically, it will be right above the viewer's heads, and maybe six inches behind. What specific designs would negate the problem of this placement as much as possible? It is one type of speaker, correct?
I also heard that JVC made some good HTiB's, as did Boston Acoustics/Kenwood (the 'slightly over budget' one I am looking at). However, while I have the names of some companies that supposedly make DVDP/Reciever combo's, I don't have a single clue about what models. I can't even find product sheets... I'll go look again soon, but I haven't found much yet...
And for the speakers, they are secondary. It might be best/cheapest to simply get the electronics, and save the speakers for later....but, the problem is, which electronics to get? Should I just go by wattage? I am thinking of adding some sort of subwoofer, to at least get some bass; that is on my to-do list as well.
