I've had my head stuck in the sand for the past ten years with respect to AV matters and I now need some advice on what I need to buy. I got my nice 32" Sony (basic nicam sound) last week and I now need to buy a DVD player. My hi-fi system is also in need of replacement so I was hoping to combine the two. I've been looking at home cinema units such as the Sony DAVS550. I assume this sort of kit is good for DVD's but how good is it for playing music CD's? How does the sound compare to traditional hi-fi units in the £300-400 price range? Would it be better to buy seperates and if so, what would I need? So many questions......thanks in advance. P.S. I have been reading about the DAVS550 problems but I'm in no particular rush and can wait until they have got the problems fixed.
