I'm a home cinema 'first-timer' thinking about joining the DAV S500 society... but comments on this forum have got me thinking otherwise. Can the seperates crowd recommend a Sony DVD/5.1 speaker combination that would perform better for the same money? Approx £450. As a newbie I need some help pairing up the seperates so they kick DAV butt - if indeed they can for the same money! (like what DVD>Amp connections to look for - optical, digital???) Cheers guys.
