I currently own a Sim2 HT280-DM & have been given the opportunity by my local dealer of upgrading (for the same price) to a slightly-used (shop demo) HT300-XTRA, or a brand-new Domino D30H. Looking at the specs, there's nothing between them, apart from the mysterious "improved optics" on the HT300, and of course the HDMI HDCP-compliant connections on the D30H. Current bugbears with my HT280-DM are wheel / fan-noise (perhaps I sit too close, but I've no other option - it's mounted on the rear wall of my lounge, on a shelf near the ceiling), a slight flickering of the picture with some DVD's, and the overall resolution's a little too "pixely" for my liking. I'm currently using a 15m component cable, although I could probably get away with a 10m digital cable. I've a 2m wide 16:9 screen, and sit about 4m away from it. Thinking to the future, I will probably be implementing HD through SKY as soon as it becomes available, and I'll be playing it all through my TMA DVD32R-PSM192 + AV32R-DP. Any comments on which would be the better one to go for ?
