Now that I've indulged myself in the Studio 10 thread!.....
I am looking to add a Plasma monitor as a replacement for the big and boxy CRT TV. In terms of connecting it up to the surround sound system, no big deal.
However, my other/better half wants to be able to 'just watch TV' without having to deal with all the other bits. We've talked about how this could be done (e.g. macro programmable remote, plasma with built-in tuner/speaker, etc.) and it looks like we're going to go with a plasma monitor with an NTSC/ATSC tuner and external speakers. Essentially, she would just turn the tuner on (like she does with the VCR today) along with the screen.
My question is (actually) about speakers. I have been considering using a pair of RC65 (or RC55i) in-wall speakers for this. Nice and unobtrusive. I'm not looking for absolute audio fidelity here, but it should sound good.
Any thoughts on this approach?
(The existing Model 10's would continue to be used with the surround sound system for 'serious' video watching)
