    Hi there,

    I'm not only new to these forums, I'm new to the world of plasma screens as well.

    I'm seriously considering buying the Hitachi 32pd5200 - but have one large concern. Does it have a port to plug headphones in? Viewing the specs of this TV on many sites doesn't seem to reveal this information, and it is absolutely crucial it has one of these, as over 50% of my viewing is done through headphones. Perhaps it has some highly technical name!?

    If anybody could help me out with this I'd be most grateful.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Simon.

    The 5300, which is the same panel as the 5200, has a headphone port on the media box (which doesn't come with the 5200). AFAIK, the 5200 doesn't have a headphone port.

    Many thanks for your reply John.

    Could somebody please confirm this for definite?

    If this is true, why on earth would a manufacturer choose to not put a headphone port in - surely it only costs them a couple of extra pounds?!

    Thanks in advance.

    Not sure if the 32pd5200 has a headphone port or not, but if it hasn't, all you need is small headphone amp & take signals from scart or line out if available.

    The Hitachi spec sheet is not very clear on this. Why not give Hitachi customer support a ring ? 01628 585000
