GQL: I have that 36" flat-screen Wega, and I've been very pleased with it. Very good picture quality with regular television channels and superb quality with DVD's. Although the sound quality is not necessarily the finest in the industry (I think most technical buffs would tell you that), virtually every untrained ear (i.e. any other human not completely obsessed with the tiniest auditory subtleties) would not be able to tell the difference, and would be very pleased - as I am - with the sound. I have a somewhat interesting set-up. I bought my Wega as part of a package. Surround-sound, including two columns on either side of the TV, both of which contain speakers and one of which contains a 6 CD/DVD changer. A true buff might spend more and mix and match various components (i.e. speakers from another maker) but I absolutely love my package. It's all Sony, it's all intended to go together (so it looks right aesthetically within the room, sleek, silver, and cool), and it's much easier this way (even my stand goes with it). Look into it if you're thinking Wega. One thing to be aware of (assuming you're not already) is that this unit is enormously heavy. In fact, many television stands/entertainment centers/etc. simply cannot bear its weight - it'll give way eventually. So be sure to carefully think through where you'll be putting it, and on what sort of stand (be sure it's sturdy - ask the salespeople).
