    Is B&O the only company that provides an lcd product with a decent integrated tv sound quality such as the beovision 7-32 does? Or are there others about? I really don't fancy those external speakers that it seems you must have!!!!

    Well! The B&O system you mention sounds absolutely stunning, it really does. You won't get that as far as I know from any other brand - as chavyboy says the Sony Bravia W series or the Panasonic LXD500 (if you can find one, or the new LXD600 series perhaps) sound good... but they don't sound anywhere the BeoLab 7-1 unfortunately.

    Oh but I think that speaker costs nearly £2000 from B&O, so there's the difference ;) However, it's a stunning speaker. Oh and I suppose the Beovision 7 itself isn't too bad either ;) Isn't the combined price of the system about £6000? Again it's a superb setup, but it's also very, very expensive when you consider the picture quality of Panasonics, etc.

    Thanks Stuart.

    Seems the Sony Bravia W series only comes in 40" which is a little large for me.

    Can't find any mention of the LXD600 at the moment but I'll keep looking

    The 600 series from Panasonic isn't *quite* ready yet, it's out within the next month or so I think :)

    If you do buy the Bang & Olufsen set, I'll be coming round to yours for a drink ;) They occasionally take some bashing, but in my opinion, B&O are brilliant. Expensive, but I like them.

    I've never had the chance to hear them yet but I've heard that some of Philips Ambi Light LCD's use 2 integrated NXT™ Monolith Speakers and are reported to have excellent sound quality. Might be worth having a demo of one.

    Excellent I'll try and find a review on the Philipps and then sort a demo.

    Thanks a million. Any more suggestions would be welcome...

    I've found that Plasmas can have better sound quality than LCDs... is 37 inches too big? If not I'd recommend trying a Panasonic TH37PV500 or whatever the new one is :)

    The sound quality on my TH42PV500 is surprisingly good

    Check out the Loewe LCD's especially the Spheros. The Loewe range gets better and better audio the further up the range you go. Also check out the optional modules that can be installed.
