    Obviously Mr. TVR isn't much of a freak about home theater equipment. If you want top of the line go with View Master equipment.

    NO! I would suggest the Hello Kitty Tea Cup Clock Radio with Nite Lite.

    Damn, Mark, you have me beat again. But I have my eye on something that's still in the prototype stages...maybe it will be out by next year.

    If you are a serious audiophile, I highly recommend the addition of a fat man for true bass fidelity:

    Computer printouts taped to the wall can be an excellent substitute for a flat screen. Want higher resolution? Ditch the cheap dot-matrix stuff and go with laser printouts. Heavy text = black. Use crayons to add a dash of color. Your partner can slide them around if you don't have tape. Now it's not exactly high-definition video, but if you think of it as a static screensaver, it works just fine. Hours of entertainment!

    No need to tell the neighbors it's not real. Allow them a quick glance through the window, then draw the blinds quickly.

    Edit: Combine this with the old-socks-for-teabags for a very cheap date.
