My Small Bedroom High Definition Home Theater System.....

Samsung PN42C450 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV (Black)
1.  Samsung PN42C450 42-Inch 720p Plasma HDTV (Black) by Samsung
The list author says:
  "After reading about the "Floating Blacks" issues and seeing them first hand, I decided to give this Entry-Level Samsung a try.  Great picture, 1080p performance with Blu-Ray Discs and good performance elsewhere, this turning out to be a great TV for the price.

So far, I'm not disappointed.

Price:  About $600.00"

Denon DVD-2910B Progressive Scan DVD Player
2.  Denon DVD-2910B Progressive Scan DVD Player by Denon
The list author says:
  "I've been using this player since 2005.  Nice picture and nice sound for the money.  I have been using it with a 2000 Panasonic "CT-27SF37" Direct-View Set (TOL 27" Set Of That Year) with excellent results.  I see no reason to expect anything less when the new plasma arrives.

Price:  $700.00 (In 2005).

P.S.:  The Denon may eventually be replaced by a Blu-Ray Player in the next year or two."

  "I've seen this game system at a close friend's house recently.  And as true to her word, this thing is addictive (for lack of a better word).  I never knew getting and staying fit would be SO addictive.  This thing could put health clubs out of business.

However, it's pretty hard to find one at retail.

  "I actually own this thing right now, and let me tell you, it's "the bomb".  I mean....  this thing has enormous storage capacity (I have the 160 GB version) and the sound quality is incredible.  Has video capability too.  But make sure you ditch the earbuds that come with this thing and use some better phones with it.  You'll see why I love this thing so much then.

By contrast, Harman/Kardon includes an iPod Dock with their AVR-3600 Receiver at NO EXTRA COST.....

What a coincidence!!!!

All-In-All, a "VERY" tasty package if I don't say so myself.

The list author says:
  "This receiver has been picked to be my second choice just in case I sour on the Harman/Kardon AVR-3600 after I have finally purchased it.

It has most of what I want on it in comparison to the Harman/Kardon AVR-3600.  The ONLY thing I hate about the Marantz is that the iPod dock is not included.

The iPod dock is $250.00 extra.

Price:  $850.00."

And the cord can be easily replaced also.  What more can you ask for.....  for $300.00???
