    I bribed my wife with a diamond bracelt and now in return I have up to £3500 quid to spend. Woohoo.

    I initially intended to spend it on a velodyne DD18 sub, but allready have a half decent sub and could not justify the cost on one speaker.

    I then thought that the old style 28 ich tv I have needs updating. Enter the plasma zone.

    In my setup I only need to use the plasma purely as a monitor with component connnection.

    I have read various articles re the Pioneer and Panny 6 models.

    Which would be better suited to my needs. I understand that Hi-Def models exist but im not too sure whats what with them.

    I was in selfridges in London last week and although I didnt spend much time in there the Fugitsu plasma seemed to have a brighter / clearer picture! Maybe setup issues etc with the other models.

    After suggestions as to which model to go for. Appologies if this is a duplication of other threads.

    I was also in Selfridge's last week and thought the Fujitsu looked very good.

    Or at least I thought that for a while, but then I noticed that it seemed to suffer shocking banding when things moved. Once I saw that I couldn't help noticing it. Basically, on still or slow-moving images it looked great, but really dire with fast motion.

    They were playing the Matrix at the time and during the fade in at "Welcome, to the real world" it looked truly awful. So, I'd have a good close look at this before parting with any cash!

    I'll have another look at the plamas. Already have a projector so no need to go down that route.

    Thanks for the info re banding issues on Fugitsu.

    Looking at your sig, £3500 would go a long way to getting decent speakers.

    No offence!

    ps I just posted in the special offer found section - Tannoy Eyrises are a bargain at the moment. A set of 7 of these (with Eyris 3s at the front) would only cost you .£1336 at the moment. You couldn't get better than that for twice the price IMO.

    pps. plasmas do look luvverly, though. mmmm shiny

    Agree with Jasper - get a 32"/36" Panasonic CRT and spend £2000 on some nice new fronts/centre speakers. :cool:
