Guys, wonder if some experts can explain the amount of equipment overlap out there? Take for example dolby/DTS decoding in DVD players, if you shell out £800 on a decent player, surely you are going to connect it to a price compatible amplifier, which will also have (better) decoders. So why not have a either make the DVD player cheaper or spend the money on better internals (i.e. the digital path)? The same can be said of the increasing amount of video scalers popping up in DVD players, amplifiers and DLP based displays. Also maybe stretching the point but speakers on 37"+ displays - obviously going to be part of a home cinema set-ups. Should we be getting these items cheaper or is the flexibility still important? Let me know... Didn't know where to put this so Mod's move at will!
