You're asking for too much. No-one is going to spend ages looking up reviews and prices for LED or plasma TVs and checking which ones have twitter, facebook etc., as well as sound bars, surround sound systems, blu-ray players and then researching the net for bundles.

You need to narrow down your criteria by doing the majority of the research yourself, and then asking for recommendations of a couple of models, or search the Forum for separate categories where members have already asked and been advised, eg sound bars or 55 inch tv.

Few weeks ago they had a great deal at Currys - the BRAVIA KDL-55HX853BU + Sony 3D Blu-ray Player for just 1,429.00. I have no idea if they are going to run it again.
It is an amazing TV for home cinema and I would recommend you to combine it with Harman kardon HKTS9 sound system for maximum performance.
I myself have the smaller Bravia KDL-32EX650 hooked up to a 2.1 system and I am very pleased with the results.
I will send you a link if I see a similar deal anywhere soon.

The HKTS9 is just a set of speakers so would need an AV receiver to drive them which would up the price somewhat.

For the same sort of money as those speakers you could get a full receiver/speaker system such as..

Yep, it really is but he is spending some 1,500 on a TV... Anyways, these are pretty good alternatives you mentioned above.
