    ....I posted this in the wrong forum previously, apologies!!!


    I'm upgrading my system from an old pioneer dvd player and prologic amp. I also have a 32" Philips 100hz with 3 scarts (2RGB) and svideo in.

    I'm looking for some opinions and/or information.

    I've seen a Pioneer HTD-5 Home theater system in Richer Sounds.
    However, I have been able to find no information or reviews other than technical details about it.

    400W total, 5 disc changer, CD-R/RW, DD, DTS. And at €699 for everything including all 5 speakers and sub-woofer it looks like a good deal.

    The Sony appears to have less power, is only €30 cheaper, but in it's favour seems well thought of on the web and in forums.

    But I'm still curious about why I can't find any info or opinions on the Pioneer. Does anyone have one? Can anyone help?

    Anything you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The Sony DAV range is poorly thought of in these forums and a search on the older threads should give you enough information to see why.

    Obviously, there are those who like the DAV units, usually because they have bought one and tend to be a bit biased. Those that have heard them and compared them to other units are less biased and more anti-DAV.
