I would like to talk about evolution. Like the dinosaur before it, the CRT is dead and is now replaced by flat-screen technology in the competing shapes of Plasma and LCD (yuck). Now it seems to me that the only reason these flat screens were developed was a result of an aesthetic imperative to mount them on the wall like a picture. And IMHO this is where they should be deployed. My PW8 is mounted thus and I can only gasp at its infinite beauty. It's even better when its switched on! I can't see the point in a plasma television sitting on a stand like a CRT. However, I can undertsand why this has happened and the reason is that the associated media boxes (DVD, Amp, Sky, TV-Drive etc) have not evolved from their nautral habitat; namely the shelves of the stand holding the CRT. Isn't somebody missing a trick here? Why can't I get my various media boxes in the same thickness as my plasma and then I wouldn't have to compromise the aesthetic by having to install a stand to hold them? I think only B&O have made any attempt to address this issue. Does this irritate anybody else or am I just picky?
