OK, I have up to around 5 grand to spend on new AV stuff (DVD player+Plasma). After reading this forum for ages I have 2 options: 1. Get a Pio435XDE from LeConcepts.com for £3550 - with stand, mediabox/freeview tuner, 2 year guarantee, desk stand and safe in the knowledge I am relatively future-proofed. Partner that with the Pio868 via HDMI (have been put off the Denon2910 as I use alot of backup DVD+Rs and apparently the Denon can be fussy with these). 2. Get a black Panny6 from av-sales.com and hook it up to a mid range DVD player via component and pocket the £1700 or so difference and put it towards a hidef panel in about 2 years to take advantage of Sky HDTV/bluray when that all settles down a bit. My problem is that I have yet to see a well setup Panny - either via DVD or via RGB>VGA converter for TV. I know this is a bit cheeky - would anyone in the Bristol/Cheltenham/Swindon area let me have a quick look at their setup?? Have seen the Pio spinning DVDs and seems fine although I have never seen a Pio look any good with Freeview/Sky. The only plasmas I've seen good with the latter have been Fujitsu's - my brother in law has just bought one and I'd never hear the last of it if whatever I bought was inferior!! Need to make a decision soon...cheers in anticipation guys.
