I have been lurking for months trying to soak up the collective wisdom on display here. I am doing a brand new home theatre and am desperately trying to make an educated buy. I am going to buy a plasma this week and have tentatively decided I will do either the TH-50PH10UK or the TH-50PX77U. I am going to wallmount it, so I won't need the stand. I plan on subscribing to a satellite service for HD programming. I guess I would need to do a hdmi slot on the pro-series, too. I also am going to buy an audio set-up, also. I am clueless as to what I should go with there. I really would only like to spend $1,000 to $1,500 on the audio side which would include speakers and receiver (will probably buy the dvd player later once the "hd war" is settled. Again, really clueless on exactly what kind of cables i should be using on the audio side. And yes, I realize this is a plasma thread, but I figured that the experts here could lead me toward not only the best tv between the two, but also what would be a good complimentary audio set-up. Once I get some good suggestions on the audio side, I'll start a thread there to get some finer tuning on that aspect. Please feel free to suggest where to buy, also. Someone said Fry's was good, but they aren't carrying either of these models currently. Simply private message me if you don't want it up for the masses to see. Thanks. Trying to move outta noob-ville!
