My wonderful wife had been setting money aside for my TV purchase and gave it to me this morning \:\)

I now have $2500 for my TV purchase, which sequence would you do?

Smaller TV 46", mid size 50-52" and Large would be 55" and up

Seating position will be about 14 ft give or take a couple feet(thanks for pointing that necessary point out Peter)

Any other ideas?

About 14' give or take a couple feet depending on seating position within the room.

How big is the wall surrounding the TV?

AFA the TV goes, bigger eez better imo(52"+) but it depends on the room obviously. \:\)

There is no substitute for "big".

I haven’t voted yet but based on the info you’ve provided I’d go “large w/ BD player” based on your seating distance.

A few other questions:

Do need the multi-format capability of the Oppo?

Do you need something that can stream Netflix?

Is the ability to play 3D Blu-ray content important to you?

How long do you need each component to satisfy you before upgrading especially the screen?

I'm with Tom. I sit 8-9 feet from my 50" and think 65" at that distance would be better.

If you are going to be sitting 14' from the screen, go with a pj.

I sit 7' from my 50" and wish it was bigger. 14' away, you're going to need opera glasses.

Our 46" Panny Plasma at 12ft works just fine in our upstairs living room, don't need anything bigger. Oh yeah, and the m22's and 350 sound great and are iceing on the cake.

Get something like this if you like plasma:

and still have tons of money left over for the PS3.

If you want LED, I'd go with as big as you swing and get them to throw in a BR player. I just bought a SOny BR player a couple of weeks ago for $119 on sale, so they aoe really coming down in price now.
