Bulk TV purchase for PA Nursing Home
MOST of the current crop of LED TVs seem to have decent pics, even "off brands" like Element, Sceptre, etc can be set-up with very good picture quality ... sound quality seems more varied with these lower priced brands.  Also not sure of the relia...

Customer service seems a "thing of the past" ... we have a couple small appliance dealers locally who advertise TV sales but when I contacted them they told me they buy their TVs from the Internet or eBay to sell!  Obviously they were no help eith... 
Ideal Cheap Low-Watt Amp for Martin Logan Quest
get a second set of efficient speakers and a Flea Watt integrated (just a power amp with passive volume control):) 
Calling all SET fans
Never heard these speakers but the Birch Acoustics Sparrow on AudiogoN MIGHT fit the bill ... 4" full range driver in a a laminated birch cabinet. Very attractive build (IMHO) and a nice price ($380). Claimed 87db efficiency but no crossover so sh...

Tube integrated with real bass. Does it exist?
vote 2 for Air Tight products ... I have the "Acoustic Masterpiece" M101. Only 8w but great bass even compared with my 200w/ch Lyngdorf SS integrated into 89db 2way floorstanders 
compact tube amp and in wall speaker
honestly if I did not already have a tube amp/preamp combo I would JUMP on the Swissnor amp on AudiogoN ... $900 for a $6000 retail Swiss made integrated tube amp. speakers, I would look to wall mount rather than in wall just for the placement fle... 
Recs for solid state integrated, $2-3,000 range
1. YBA Passion2. Jeff Rowland Concentra I or IIOlder but both (or all three if you count the JR's as separate units) will hold there own in today's marketHighly sought after and rarely available, they are worth consideration if you can find them! 
Starting from scratch ..need advice from you
the two sets of front speakers would be WEIRD ... SOUNDS like you are trying for a theater type set-up.vintage tube amps with some Klipschorns or big Altec's would be my choiceI would probably stay 2 channel BUT you could probably use Klipsch Heri... 
Shopping for speakers at $1500-$2000 is a chore.
