    need help looking for a 30 or 32 " lcd.

    this is for upstairs in our room to be placed on a wall about 3 meters from where we lay in bed.
    babya room is next door so was looking for a set where the speaker could be extended and placed next to bed and left at a low volume, would also like one with as small a frame as possible . was looking at the older sharp lcds which had a removable speaker but are hard to find now .
    as i say this is to be bought in the comming weeks so maybe a newer model by then would have the removable speakers.

    thanks

    Check out the trhread on the new Acer 32" or do a Google on it. Decent enough set with removable speakers! The thread's headline is something like 'Holy Macaroni'...etc.

    Yeah...fine. This is a very similarly specced TV to the Acer..in fact, Acer and Relisys have used the same OEM manufacturer before...could be the same TV!

    Please be aware that these budget sets may not perform quite as well as the Big Boys (Philips, Sharp, Toshiba, Loewe) but at the money the'll do a grand job. Fully HD Ready as well! Not bad...

    Would say the Acer is better, its about 20 quid more but has a 3 year ONSITE warranty, a better contrast ratio and IMHO looks alot better then the realsys!

    The Relisys is currently £799:95 from Richer Sounds and I believe their prices are vat inclusive.Bearing in mind they change them faster than the stock market though,you'll have to get in quick!

    ok looked at acer but think it has a speaker attached to the tv as well so when i put volume up the speakers placed next to the bed would go up but also the speaker on the tv which would wake baby , just need a lcd with 2 detachable speakers and good connections , saw a 28" hitachi looked good but only 1 scart

    The Acer speakers are detachable, it states this in the TrustedReviews.com review. I presume that the strip underneath the controls isn't hiding another speaker.

    Ive been looking at the Acer and the Relisys, and so far Im favouring the Acer. I havn't read any owner reviews yet though...

    The Sharp GA3 and GA4 has detachable speakers and is an excellent TV. However, they are extremely rare now and you would be doing very well to find one at all.

    Have you considered just using headphones? All the top TV's have headphone outputs which would certainly be very baby friendly...

    The Sharp you mentioned is a decent TV, but not as good as the GD3 or GD4. The Toshiba is probably a better bet and is HD Ready unlike the Sharp. Also take a gander at the Philips 9976 which is HD Ready, is nicely understated and good value. Superb picture performance.

    The computer speaker solution will work a treat!
