Hi, I know there have been various thread like this, but I'm looking to buy asap so wuld apprciate your advice. I'm after a all in one package for a 17 x 20ft room. It must be quite loud, enough to fill the room, and make my ears bleed! (well it must be quite loud) It must have an active sub. It must be region free. I have many american disks. It must be able to read DVD-R's, as I have a recorder. It must look fairly nice. It must have SCART out It must have at least two inputs (LP deck, Video) I would like 3 if possible. My budget is £450. I have been offered a Sony DAVs888 for £430. However, it is said not to be region free. Will it play DVD-r's? Any other cheaper suggestions? Thanks for the help.
