    Since discovering this forum on my quest to understand more about AV and setting up an entry level solution I've leant on the plasma guys and then the projector guys and now i'm here!

    I really am starting from the ground up - i.e. I know very little about the technology and gadgetary.

    So far I have opted for a Projector solution (entry level I guess @ £500). I have a Sky+ Box and my theory is I can connect these two together using s-video.

    Considering what I have spent on the Projector can someone advise what I should be looking for in an AMP+Speakers so I can hear what's going on in my Projected image!

    Many thanks in advanced for any advice.

    I recommend the Denon AVR 1906 ~£300 Good all round perfomer at entry level pricing - can't go wrong

    Very happy with my NAD T753 @ £500. T743 is available for £350.
    Good solid workhorse, built like a sherman tank.

    My T753 has all the video inputs in as well, so just set the Projector to the A/V amp and select what you want. it then provides the Audio to the relevant place and the video too. Doesn't' have HDMI btw.

    All ports are routeable, so can plug bits in on any inputs, and select which ports you want for each input option (E.g, when I switch to DVD, takes S-Video audio signal from DVD and takes an optical port I have assigned).

    Means no channel-hopping ion the T.V.

    Sure a lot of other products do this too.
