    I have been looking into getting an All in one for a little while now, and thought I had settled on the Denon 550.

    I had thought I would also like to get a recorder as well, and reading the reviews in the new Home cinema mag they have recommended the Panasonic SC-HT1500 and the Philips LX7500R. Has anybody had any experience of either of these two?

    Thanks

    Shaun

    I've just bought an LX7500R. I was originally planning to get a denon, but the recorder bit swung me in favour of the Philips. As you have seen, the reviews on this wery pretty good.

    The one thing that i had a small reservation about was it having a passive sub - having read that active was the way to go. But the reveiws on the sound quality of the Philips were good so it didn't bother me too much.

    This is the first system I have bought, so unfortunately I can't really advise on how good\bad it compares to others. All I can say is that the sound is definately good enough for me (at the moment!) & the dvd is better than my Sony, which was forever having problems reading disks - no problems with the Philips so far.

    Cheers

    I'm looking at this one now as well after reading the review mentioned. I had initially thought about the Sony DAVSR4 but this looks a better option. I have a philips DVDR610 recorder at the moment so this allows me to keep that functionality but get al the surround options I need and the wife will be happy as it matches our 30" Philips LCD.

    Just for info I've seen this on the web for around £493.

    So does anyone care to offer any more experiences with it before I go and splash some cash?

    www.cheapelectricals.co.uk. I emailed them last night witha couple of queries and got a pretty unhelpful response back. I'll be going else where. Sorry to get your hopes up.
