    Hi All,

    Sorry for the basic questions but I'm moving on from an LG all-in-one and want to make sure I'm not shooting myself in the foot with a move to an AV amp...

    I have an LG 32LC56 tv with 2 HDMI inputs currently running the aforementioned LG all-in-one and a Samsung BD1500. I have Sky HD coming on Thursday which means that I will have 3 HDMI sources and only 2 slots.

    I've read a little about the 506 and understand that it'll take 3 HDMIs in to 1 out, and that I'll need an optical for the 5.1 sound.

    I guess my questions would be

    - do I keep the LG all-in-one for use only as a surround sound amp or go for the onkyo 506?

    - I'm on a really tight budget and want to reuse the speakers I got with the all-in-one, is this a good idea? (they are 4ohm from an LG sh72th-s if that helps at all).

    Any suggestions would be welcome especially if anyone has a similar TV/Sky HD/Samsung Blu-ray set up.

    Many thanks

    Hi all,

    I've finally grown my own set of nuts and, based on some other information and good feedback on another thread, ordered one from Peter Tyson.

    Ciao
