As you may have seen from my other threads, i have one of the much loved/loathed DAV systems (800). However i agree that as good as it is........it is no match for an equivalent separates package. My sister has asked me to pick out the components to form her shiny new home cinema room. She likes the DAVS800, but I've convinced her to go the separates route. I like the PAnasonic plasma at RC for £4500 which leaves £1500 for DVD and speakers. I'd like to hear your suggestions as to what you'd buy with this amount of dosh ...... Cheers Rob PS Is the best connection from the DVD to the plasma to use RGB ?
