Will soon be getting my Pioneer 434hde from JL and moving house, when I do I'll be wanting to mount the baby over the fireplace and bury the cables if possible behind the wall. It's one of these newly built houses. Anyhow's, I aint got a clue about where to start drilling and stuff ( im a penpusher !! ) so I want to get a firm to do it for me. I gave a PA Installations a shout ( local AV firm in my town of Llanelli ) and they quoted me £300 + a £300 plasma handling charge cause I didnt buy the plasma through them. Surely this is a bit steep ( £600 ) !! Can anyone recommend someone in the South Wales area who can do this for me for a fair price ? Any suggestions MAW would be greatly appreciated as you may well know firms in my area !

That's not kind! Bet they charge a fortune for plasma too, like £300 more. Well I can help almost certainly, PM me your phone number, my best technician lives in Glouc.

Thomas Bros are still there but will only install a plasma bought from them, PA installations are installing plasmas at the Pentre Nicklaus Village ( the new golf village ) which is why I asked them .. but to charge £300 as a handling fee is ridiculous. BTW, you from Llanelli ?

Thanks for the PM, Jack We will be in touch, your budget sounds eminently reasonable. I can also see why someone should refuse to install something they haven't supplied, I feel better that than to offer at an extortionate rate

I know Kipper and Steve Evs, the other names sound familiar too. You probably know most of the Seaside boys. Im a bit of a newbie when it comes to plasmas, now I'll know who to ask if I need advice :D
