My Samsung TXT3093 30" slim fit tube television and Samsung DVD-1080P7 up convert DVD player that we recieved as a wedding present. I absolutly love the picture on this TV. HD over the air and DVDs are great.
I didn't want any of the plasmas or LCDs that were in my parents price range beacuse they have a smaller screen and in my opinion no were near as nice of a picture as this tv has.
I have a 30" Samsung SlimFit HDTV. Nothing beats a good ol CRT for contrast and brightness. The only drawback is that a mere 30" TV weighs 120lbs. I would imagine a 40" would weigh a good 200lbs.

Re: Which new piece of equipment has exceeded your expectations?

My TV. I own a Mits 46" 1080i rear-projection joint. I bought it as a floor model display back in mid-2002. Since then, I have moved a total of 3 times (not counting how many times it has changed locations within my house) and it is STILL KICKING!!! The thing looks just as good as the day I bought it. Not one service, not one gun replacement, not one scratch on the screen.

The misses won't let me buy another TV (you know, one of those flat panel, 1080P, HDMI, 120hz refresh rate jobbies everyone else has) until this one dies.

Let's just say my success with my current TV has been bitter-sweet.

Re: Which new piece of equipment has exceeded your expectations?

I purchased Emotiva separates (MMC-1 pre/pro and XPA-5 5 Ch Amp) to replace an Onkyo integrated system (not a shabby unit at all). The sound, flexibilty and product satisfaction have boosted my HT experience more than I could have anticipated from a direct replacement. I could have spent 4x's the amount and not done any better as far as utility and quality. Bee line straight home from work and get the music on every night.

1. PS3 - Some DVDs look HD, Blu-Ray looks and sounds awesome, and they keep on releasing software updates for it!
2. Sony KDS-50A3000 Rear Projection TV - $1399 should not look this good!
3. Denon AVR-888 - My system sounded good before. How can Audyssey MultEQ make it sound so much better?!

Two things for me, Polk LSI 15 speakers and my new Emotiva LPA-1 amp. Got the speakers before the amp arrived and listened to them with the old HK receiver. When the amp got here and hooked it up the speakers really came alive.
I'm expecting my LPA-1 on Monday and I can't wait to power up my LSi25, LSiC and LSiC15s with it.
The LSi's sound great with my Pioneer VSX-1014TX receiver, so I can't wait for them to come alive!

My panasonic 1080p projector. It is a sweet piece of gear. I never imagined that projectors could have come as far as they have as fast as they have and at the price they are not at. If you are looking for a home theater projector, there is not a better projector for the money. IMO
