    Since my place is undergoing extensive renovation and will finish up being almost completely open-plan, I'm toying with the idea of installing several video/audio sockets dotted around in various locations, fed from a central distribution amp, and having a moveable smallish TV on a wheeled stand to complement my projection setup.

    After an admittedly brief search I haven't come across a w/s set any smaller than 24". Does anyone make a smaller one? Or - silly question, I realise - is any one manufacturer noted for the unusual lightness of its TVs?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you considered an LCD TV - we have the new Panasonic 15" and 22" units and they look pretty amazing; though not what you would call cheap!

    Regards

    Joe, thanks for the reply. Yes, I did wonder about using an LCD set - and then I'm afraid I wondered no longer when I saw the prices... They do look impressive, though.

    On the CRT question, I discovered that Sony used to make a 16" widescreen model but discontinued it a few years ago "because there was no demand" to quote a local dealer. It's funny how often I hear that line whenever I enquire about things - obviously my tastes aren't in tune with the rest of the country's...

    Actually, I'd have thought that a smallish widescreen set would have found a decent bit of a market these days.
