Hi all - advice humbly requested. Given the choice of the 2 systems above what should I go for? Both systems look good, both sound good (at least to me) and both are at Comet at the moment at £350 - although I am in the process of getting John Lewis to do a price match to get additional 1 years guarantee. Both systems get glowing reports and reviews here and in the magazines. I will be attaching to a Panasonic tx28ps1 - I also have a Panasonic DVD recorder DMR50 and a panasonic sky digital box and therefore want a panny home cinema system to round off the package. As a compromise to the wife I can have one so long as I get rid of the current hi-fi system - not a panasonic I hasten to add!!. So it will be used to play cd's as well as dvd's. I know that the 310 has less connections than the 900 but how will that effect me. The telly has just 2 scarts & I have 3 items to connect so something will have to go in the s-video connector, probably the recorder (am I wrong with this choice?) Is my decision to be based purely on cosmetics or are there real differences between these machines ? Thank you in advance anyone who replies to aid my dilemma.
