New DVD Player, Don't Buy Anything Sony

I’m telling ya. If it’s not one thing, it’s the other. My DVD player broke a couple of days ago right after I had finished setting up my home theater system. It was this nice Sony but now it’s a big ass paper weight. I take real good care of my stuff and anything I’ve owned that was Sony has just never kept. Their products (both high and low end I’ve bought) are just cheap and chinsy and I’ll never be buying anything from them again (except Playstations). I urge you to do the same.

Anyway, I can’t live without my DVD player so I hopped over to Circuit City and picked up this very nice Onkyo 5-disc DVD changer. Well, it’s awfully big and (go figure) it doesn’t fit properly in my entertainment system. It does look bad ass next to my HTS, though, because they’re the same material and brand. Now I’m thinking it’s time to get a new entertainment system but I really should stop since I’ve spent $550 on the receiver and speakers, $250 on cabling (Monster all around), $100 on speaker stands, and another $300 on a new DVD player. I’m also looking into the HDTV by summer this year. Consumer whore? Yes, and I love it.

I’m gonna try and take that QTVR pano sometime this weekend so you can see how the setup looks in the living room. I know you can’t wait for that.
