    I bought a Loewe Aconda 9381ZW 32" yesterday and I have thank the members of this forum for helping me to pick this set.
    Anyway I bought it from Alan James Hifi in Glasgow for the bargain price of £1349.99.
    It appears that Alan James Hifi have a few of these sets availible but only the pale blue model is availible at that price.
    I had never seen the Aconda in that colour before but it looks good.
    I'll let you know how I get on with the TV when it arrives, hopefully next week sometime.

    Shocker! I've just had a call from the salesman at Alan James. All of the blue models are sold. I'm now getting the silver set but it's an extra £50. Considering they wanted £1710 for the silver or black models I suppose that ain't too bad.

    What cables are people using here to hook up their TV's and DVD's?
    I have a RGB picture only QED Squart for the new set but I'm looking for a good SVHS to Scart lead for my trusty old Pionerr 925 LD player.

    The silver (Light Stratos Metallic) looks even better ;).

    The QED Sqart is a good choice for your DVD Player. Hook this up to AV3 on the Loewe.

    You could also go with QED for the S-Video cable - the AV17 (S-Video + 2 Phono Audio to Scart) would be suitable. Best price I've found is here:

    http://www.hifi4less.com/QED_AV17_S_Video_and_2_Phono_to_Scart__video_and_audio_.htm

    If you just want S-Video (no audio), then the QED AV12 is the model you need:

    http://www.hifi4less.com/QED_AV12_S_Video_to_Scart__video_only_.htm

    Another good choice would be a Supra S-Video cable from http://www.supradirect.co.uk.

    Hook the LD player up to AV1 on the Loewe.
