Future Mirkwood Upgrades

RECEIVER: Right now I am waiting for Integra, Sony ES, Denon, and Onkyo to announce their new receiver line. All I know is that I want a 7.1 channel receiver with an internal amp for all channels, plus a slew of other options that I don't want to list right now.

HDTV: Although I don't plan on purchasing an HDTV for some time, I have already started saving up. I want to see what technology will be the leader of the post CRT race. Right now I think that the DLP technology is the most promising. Although, if I had to buy a tv right now, it would be the Pioneer Elite PRO-610HD.

SPEAKERS: Slowly but surely I plan on upgrading my speaker system. I plan on taking a trip over the boarder to Canada to pick up some Paradigm speakers. The following is what I plan to eventually purchase.

Paradigm System Eight (with 2 ADP-370's for THX EX)
Fronts: Monitor 11 (x 2)
Center: CC-370 (x 1)
Surrounds: ADP-370 (x 4)
Subwoofer: PW-2200 (x 1)
