Yes, it's that same question that I'm sure you've been asked a million times! But hey, I'm new to the game and need a little help. I have just upgraded from 28" wide/flat screen panasonic tv with SCHT70 home cinema system to a 42" plasma - I now need DVD/Audio/Speakers etc. I am looking towards a progressive scan DVD, would like reasonable sound and vision, but haven't ever found anything to grumble about with the SCHT70 - but guys keep scoffing when I mention all-in-one systems! Budget for audio/visual set up is £600 (maybe a little more for something spectacular) and I want the DVD/Home Cinema to be multiregion and have component output to connect directly to the plasma. Please don't laugh - just give me a clue!? Is it best to go separate or all-in-one for convenience and budget?
