Our TV had been dying a slow death for quite some time – a 36″ Sony Trinatron we purchased about 14 years ago. The colors and overall picture quality were gradually deteriorating, and it became apparent that we needed to replace it.
My wife recently received a brochure in the mail from her credit union, advertising a 3% interest rate on Visa purchases made between now and the end of the year – so we bit the proverbial bullet and bought a new TV. It’s pretty cool to have a high-definition TV, we’ve never had one before.
Talk about sensory overload! This thing is like sitting at a movie theate in your living room. A 60″ Sharp Aquos LED/LCD. I’m like a kid with a new toy. Very cool.
I’m not sure if we will eventually add a 5.1 surround-sound home theater, or just go with a sound bar and sub. If anyone has any thoughts or recommendations about this I’d be interested to hear them.
Ho Ho Ho!
