my first question is....which receiver would perform better with my speaker set up? Denon 3801/3802 or the Onkyo txds787/tx-ds696? i have the rt800i,cs400i,rt35i,-spare cs245i,velodyne ct-150(may use it for the six channel) and how much of a noticeable difference in sound when/if i replace my low end JVC rx-6100v receiver with either the denon or onkyo? it's alot of canadian money to purchase either( brand ) receiver but be well worth the money if it make a big improvement to my system.
video question? i planning to upgrade my 27" sony trinitron tv for the panasonic pt47wx51 wide screen....but i'm not sure right now because a friend mind asked me if i knew that a rear projection tv's guns fades about 50% every 3yrs and after 6yrs the picture will be about 75% less bright and fading will level off after six yrs...this is process is very gradual.....he recommends me to buy a front projection. however, my problem will first be the cost for the front projection and the amount of work required to be installed......i wondering if anyone had any problems with their rear projection tv's and i should just go a head and purchase a the rear projection......(i don't know anyone that has a projection tv)
so please feel free if anyone has any opinions or advice in the audio/video questions above.....and i thank everyone on this site who gave me good advice earlier in the year when i bought my speaker system...ie Aaron, Russman..... etc. and many more polk owners.
