Hi everyone, Very useful coments from you all on most subjects has prompted me to tap your knowledgable brains! I am in the market for a plasma and as I want to put it inside an Ikea (don't curse me!) unit I am looking at the Hitachi 37PD5200. However, it would mean that there was almost no space between the edge of set and the edge of the unit. The manual talks about having 10cm of gap for ventilation purposes. Is this really required and should I be re-thinking my set placement? Also, when I was thinking of 36" CRTs, the connectivity issue was always about the number of RGB enable scarts (or composite input). I notice on the 37PD5200 that there is only a single Scart and the other inputs are via phonos. Is this degrading to the signal quality? I have a Sony 5.1ch amp which I could use to channel multiple sources through but I have always been confused as to how the video signal works through this and whether again you are giving up quality for convenience. I have a video, a dvd player, a sky set top box and an xbox. Although of them can play sound through the sony amp. Any views on these two points would be most appreciated. many thanks, Ig ps How come only Dixons and Comet stock this set?
