Having spent hours going throught these threads I just thought I would say I have finally ordered my first ever plasma. And the winner is...... .....I went for a Panny PWD7 with dual input board. As I basically have no other decent AV equipment, I have also gone for a Yamaha DSPAX750 AV receiver, and some Canton CD1 speakers (coming from Germany). The earliest I can be in to receive a delivery is Wednesday next week, so I have to wait 'till then. After which comes the joy of cabling.....I'm gonna channel a big hole in the wall for trunking +/- face plates. Look out for me on DIY disasters !!!! Anyway, i just wanted to say thanks to all the people on here who gave me advice and answered all my stupid questions.....I feel like a bit of an expert now !
