Hello there, first post I'm afraid. I've decided that I need a new TV and have put two grand aside for the TV itself and all associated equipment. To set the scene a little, I've got four children from 17, 15, 3 and six weeks - whilst I have no choice but to expose the screen and two free standing speakers to jammy fingers it will sit on top of a cabinet to house everything else. I've got my eye on a Hitachi 7200 despite the ugly silver rim at the bottom and was hoping you could advise me on what associated equipment I need to bring it to live. I've also got Sky+, a Denon CD player, an iPod and a couple of smart free standing speakers that I bought when I purchased my separates system in 2001. What I want to know (please) is: 1) Is the Hitachi7200 the best use of my £1,400 and 2) Is my budget for the rest of the peripherals needed (amp and connectors - anything else?) realistic 2) what amp (if indeed it is an amp I need) should I buy to pull all this gear together and be able to run it out of the speakers. For reference, I'll be sitting about 10 feet away from the screen that will be about three feet off the ground (on top of a cabinet) - I know this kind of info can be relevant to you guys. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
