    I am looking to buy an All in one home cinema system for my living room.
    I have narrowed the choice down to 3 systems

    1.Panasonic SCH520
    Great reviews,but doesnt seem to upmix stereo from TV source and volume is a bit low

    2.Pioneer DCS 222
    Looks good ,sounds good ,multiregion

    3.Sony DAV SB-200
    Good system,lots of power,not multiregional,but has floor standing speakers which I like.

    I already have a DVD player and the most important factor in buying the system is the sound aspect not the picture.
    I want a good clear powerful system so I can watch lots of DVD's and upmix standard Tv.

    Anyone have experience of any of these systems or are they all good and I cant go wrong ?

    the panny is ok....but as you have a DVD player why buy an all in one? why not buy a basic AMP and spekaers? how much do you have to spend with the CANTON CD1 speaker (much better than any sub £1000 all in one for £240 delivered and a basic AV amp for £100 you will get a much better sound..........

    Dont want to spend more than 300 euro in total.
    Would the 3 systems I mentioned be any good ?
    The Cantons look good but I cant really afford them at the moment after buying my projector.

    How would this perform ?

    Okay how about the Pioneer VSXD 514 receiver with the Canton Movie 6 CX speakers.
    How would that compare with the 3 all in one systems ?
    Also do any cables come with the Canton set ?

    Dear mranarchy

    The canton system will spank the other systems into oblivion. Big time. and its more discreet.

    If you want any info on the movie 6CX let me know.

    regards

    How would the Yamaha AV 50 Package compare with the Pioneer DCS222 system ?
    I've decided I'll go with one of the above.
    Any recommendations ?
