    This is a holy war topic, meaning it's like religion. Everyone has their own view, and no two views will exactly match. Hence, asking "what is the best" will simply get you a bunch of different opinions.

    I think you're going to have to do your own research here and come up with more stringent criteria than just "Good DVD, good SD, good HD". Perhaps you should be going to a Tweeter or such to audition sets?

    your going to find that everyone is different. I say single CRT, due to the numerous reviews that state that fact. certain brands tend to be better than others, such a Sony in the Single HD-CRT market as being one of the best.

    Check out the 3x9" CRT and 3-chip Mustang HD2+ DLP projectors from Runco and Barco. They will run you somewhere between $39,000 to $119,000. To get the best performance from them with SD material you will want a top-of-the-line Farouja scaler/decoder ($10,000-25,000). A good motorized masking screen will run $2500-5000 depending upon size & materials.

    Enjoy!

    I think the movie theater Christie does a better job. i think it's under 100k add a Quvis hard drive, buy a motion picture house and you're set.

    If you're looking for front projectors, you might check the Sony VPLHS20 at a local retailer. Under 4K with a 3000 hr $300 it's a great unit. In rear projection look at the JVCs and the RCA Sceniums. Nice sets, great values. If you're into the new digital technologies. RCA and Samsung DLPs. JVC 42" HD plasma and Sony in smaller plasmas. Both JVC and Sony have some nice offerings in LCD. Don't let a salesmen give you half-truths to sell one technology over another. Think of your viewing distance and ability to control light. You have 7 digital stations in Wichita, you may want a set with built in tuners. Cox is offering some HD. DirectTv will soon offer Wichita locals (not HD) and Dish is offering analog locals now. For the info, i exact a price of 3 NuWays

    i have a hitachi 50" lcd right now but if i dont want it i stil have a couple days to send it back. i mean it seems good to me but i just wondered if there was something better. i dont want a projecter i have no place to put it im in a townhome that is leased. and i dont live in wichita i live in overland park,ks a subbereb of kansas city. yea i get my locals off of dish right now but i dont think my tv has a built in tuner. i didnt buy one because i thought i would be receiving my HD channels over satellite but they dont offer them yet. so how do you pick up HD locals if my hitachi 50v500a doesnt have a tuner then what do i need besides an antenna

    Besides the antenna, you need something which has a digital OTA tuner, i.e. is able to receive and decode digital ATSC broadcasts. You can either use a stand-alone set top box which is just for OTA, or you can use a satellite receiver which has an integrated ATSC tuner, such as a Dish Network 811 or 921.

    The Sony Professional BVM_F24 Studio Monitor Display(that's mostly used on Hollywood movies) with 1920x1080 native progressive scan resolution and a 24" 16x9 screen seems hard to beat in terms of pure picture quality, and the dot pitch on that thing is almost unheard of for HDTVs.
    I've attached a pic below, but since the thing costs more than some of the new fully equipped models from Lexus, Mercedes Benz, and BMW, it's not a realistic option for most people.
    BTW, native 1080p displays are getting cheaper and cheaper all the time, they used to cost an arm and a leg, and a brain and a heart and a soul, and now they just cost an arm and a leg.
