Your buddy may be really into "hi-fi", but he doesn't seem to know what he's talking about. Either that or he's not properly giving you the information you need to make an informed decision.erknjerk said:
I was told by my buddy who is very into hifi that HDTV is really only for television(you still have to have the right gear and channels). DVD with the right connectors will make it digital with or without HDTV. That's why I don't want it unless it comes at a good deal.
As to you Bowe I will be paying some upfront and no-interest finance the rest. Unless $800 is good enough

If you get it, let me know how you like it. I'm still debating on whether or not to drop the money on one. I read a review on the Samsung (Home Theater or Sound and Vision, can't remember which one) and they said that while it does technically give you better detail, that the added detail is sometimes distracting. For pure digital transfers (Monsters Inc, Toy Story etc) it was definitely better. For video sources... it could go either way depending on your preference. I haven't seen/heard anything about the Bravo other than that it exists.JawKnee said:
I would HIGHLY recommend the one I just got, the Sony KV34XBR910, but it's out of your price range. For your price range, you may want to take a look at the Toshiba Cinema Series 34HFX83 -- you can get it for ~$1600 at Video Only.
Hey Faster954, I'm thinking of picking up the Bravo or the Samsung DVD player Leaning towards the Bravo since you can get it for under $200
Given the title of the post, I'm guessing he wants a widescreen.
You should be able to easily find a 40" widescreen HDTV (more likely a 51 or so) in the price range you're looking. I got my 65" for 2260 after everything was done.
