Now that flat-screen TVs generally cost considerably less than a Kia (a couple of years ago, they were in the Lexus range), you're thinking that maybe — maybe — you need to buy one. Walk into Harvey Electronics and you will buy one. The high-end audio-video stores have been transformed into shrines to the pulse-quickening art of hang-it-on-the-wall home cinema. The spacious midtown-Manhattan flagship has over twenty flat-screen TVs on display, and unlike most other electronics retailers, Harvey stocks all the biggies: Fujitsu, Sharp, Sony, Bang & Olufsen, Runco, Marantz, Pioneer, and Panasonic. You can pick up an exquisitely designed thirteen-inch SharpVision LCD Aquos for just $1,000, or dream big (really big) and walk out with an HDTV-ready 61-inch Runco PlasmaWall (the largest unit on the market) for $29,995. Harvey — now in its seventy-fifth year — does expert installation, too.
