    I'm looking for some additional suggestions or advice. I want to buy a 32" TV with Dolby Digital built in. I currently have a great Stereo system setup so the last thing I want to do is add another component and purchase more speakers. I'm just looking to get a decent sound and do not expect it to match a seperate DD amp.

    So far I have looked at the Panasonic TX-32PS5 (£678) and the Toshiba 32ZP38 ( £884). The intention is to just pull out the rear speakers when watching DVDs but otherwise store them behind the TV.

    From what I have read these are both good choices but not exactly the latest products on the market. Are there any other choices I should be considering ?

    Any advice is appreciated. Am looking to make the purchase in the next couple of days.

    Why not just buy a processor and integrate it with your existing amp and speakers ?

    Loewe Aconda 9581 - you will need active speakers with this set up though. I'm guessing your existing speakers are not active and so this'll be a fairly expensive route...

    First of all I don't really want to open up Pandora's box to the process of selecting a DD amp, rear speakers (hmm try matching them with Quad 11Ls), wiring, stands/brackets, etc.

    For once I'm just looking for the easy solution and as my needs are pretty basic I thought I'd take the route of least resistance. Yeah I know that I could get a better solution for the same money but thats not my priority this time.

    I'm probably one of the few so it looks like its case of tossing a coin between the Toshiba and the Panasonic. I really don't know if their DD offerings are much better that the normal nicam or DD Virtual which seem to be more popular.
