    :confused: looking to upgrade from pioneer 575A to all-in-one - i fancy the denon dht 550 - any idea if this has HDMI output? If not, is there a comparable all-in-one with HDMI output on the DVD player? I suppose I could change the DVD player - the all-in-one is the best bet for me due to space and budget restrictions.... cheers.

    don't think there is a HDMI output all in one. Neither do i think that thre is a DVD standalone player that is ready to play HD disks.

    There are dvd players that allow for a higher output of some sort for current DVD's.

    Abbeygoo,

    Welcome to AV forums :clap:


    With re to an HDMI output on an all-in-one system, I've had a look and cannot find one - the new Denon 2.1 (pseudo surround) system - see http://www.soundandvisiononline.com/moreinfo/index.asp?product_id=9814 - has one but I know that you'll really want rear speakers. How's about teaming the Denon DVD1920 (winner of best DVD in todays "What HIFI Sound and Vision" awards) - has HDMI output and is circa £200-£250; with the Denon DHT1356XP - see http://www.denon.co.uk/site/frames_...ppe_C=4&action=detail&Pid=258&main=prod&sub=1
    - is basically the amp and speakers without the dvd player. I can't find a price anywhere for this so have posted a thread on : http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2058578#post2058578

    Hope this helps. :smashin:

    Matt

    Found a Samsung HT-P70N at www.pixmania.com and HT-P70 at www.waratah.co.uk at 280£. Both should have HDMI, DCDi upscaling and much more. I´ve phoned Samsung support to make sure the HT-P70(N) also has HDMI, the supporter couldn´t explanin to me what the (N) stands for, but reassured me that both model have HDMI, so i guess i´m placing an order for the HT-P70N at pixmania, first thing next week.

    HT-P70N:http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/112554/art/samsung/ht-p70n-home-cinema-syste.html

    Don't know much about the P70 but I checked and it does have HDMI output. You can get full details in the manual - link on this page: http://***********/8v2ny

    (sorry about the tinyurl but the full url is ridiculous)

    Yes, the Samsung HT-P1200, which won the best European Home Theater System at the recent EISA 2005/2006 Awards.

    Currently available in the UK from £651.10 (incl. P&P).

    just received the Samsung HT-P70 ordered from pixmania.com (they call it HT-P70N, but on the box it got it clearly states HT-P70) and it has HDMI, Faroudja DCDi etc. So far i´m very very satisfied with the system. Think it´s extremely high value for 280£ dvd via hdmi looks stunning, sound is also ok but then again i have a tiny living room.

    #13 i´ve just got the HT-P70 (see the other thread in here) the PQ is IMO execellent via HDMI and scaled to 720p or 1080i and the Samsung package includes a nice fat HDMI cable

    here's a review I've found, looks like a good system!

    Pity that "review" seemed to have been written by a 12 year old with the IQ of an Amstrad product!

    This sytem (Samsung HT-P1200) seems to be exactly what i'm looking for but it's strange that the magazines don't seem to have got hold of it yet especially as it has won that award. It is a European award so i guess it's possible that it hasn't actually been officially released here in the UK yet.

    I'd also be grateful to hear more on this sytem from anyone, especially if it turns up in any of the UK wide retailer so i can check it out properly for myself.

    I guess it's too early for the Samsung HT-P1200 to have featured in a UK magazine review yet, but it does appear to be available in the UK. Futurehome have it listed at £799 (incl. delivery) and indicate that they do have stock currently.

    i'm looking at ordering the ht-p70 frm pixmania, but it's listed as a ht-p70n... which has no hdmi. yet you were sent a p70, correct?

    to make things even more confusing, now the samsung site has neither p70 nor p70n, but does have a p70r

    The "n" has not been confirmed as not having HDMI, Pixmania simply just haven't listed it from what I can tell.
    Someone earlier in the thread did say they called Samsung who agreed that the "n" does have HDMI

    Yes i called samsung (sweden/denmark) and they said that the "n" shouldnt matter. I went along and bought the HT-P70N listed on pixmania. The box i got last week clearly says "Samsung HT-P70" - Home Cinema System with HDMI etc.

    So i would give it a go, otherwise you have your 14days money back gurantee

    o27 - SELL it to me mate!

    Cant really afford it but also I dont want a seperate (non scaling/non hdmi but prog scan at least) dvd player and (old, basic) all-in-one cluttering up my new setup.

    Is it great? Is there anything else on the horizon?

    I would def. buy it at waratah then you´re absolutely certain to get what you pay for;-)
    So far i´m more than happy with it.
    Ceratinly you can get better performance by buying seperates, but for the price i seriously doubt you get a better deal ATM.

    Can anyone tell me if the fan is annoyingly loud. I've got one of the older ht-120 (at least I think that was what it is called) and the fan is very annoying. You can hear it at normal levels nevermind when there's little or no sound. It really detracts from viewing.

    Thanks

    Just spoken to Waratah and been told Samsung decided not to bring HT P70 to UK. :(

    Phoned up Samsung and told them above was strange considering the HT P70R was the first all-in-one system on their website so where could I buy it - after being told to go to Currys website (who also don't have it) and that their system was down today I was put on hold then cut off.

    Shame, this looked like an (almost) ideal system.

    I am looking to get an all-in-one system to replace my current sony amp and dvd,

    would like one with HDMI output
    5.1
    DD,DTS etc
    it would be better if it had the option of coming without speakers as I already have a set of speakers.
    inputs for ps2,sky+ etc

    the reason for the change is to allow the system to be more user friendly as currently i am using the dvd player to play cds, which the way it is connected at the moment(scart) it turns the tv on everytime i want to play a cd, which is not ideal. So would alos consider seperate amp and dvd if its easy to use.

    thanks
