I hope to soon purchase my first HDTV. I have all but decided on the Sony KDL - 52W3000 LCD. Any input, pro or con on this set???
Also, I have 4 year old 7.1 home theater system, and a Sony DVD recorder. The receiver has S-video and digital coax, but niether have HDMI connections. Will these be ok and adequete with this HDTV, or do I need to upgrade everything. I guess my main question or concern is DVD playback quality with the older systems. I hope these questions are not too dumb, but like I said, I'm new to all of this. Thanks in advance for your input and thoughts.

My buddy has that set, and it's awesome. You'd be hard pressed to find a better picture at that price in my opinion. At 52" I don't think you'll be impressed at anything but HD. So the old DVD player has to go. You can get a cheap upconverting (<$100) player or a new HD player for under $300. Shop around, by buddy paid $2400 at Fry's.
