After reading many articles here on Plasma's I have purchased a Pany 5 and am connecting it to a Denon 3800 DVD, A11SR Denon amp and JMLabs Cobalt speakers. If any body has any simple questions regarding the Plasma's performance I would be happy to give my thoughts. One thing i have found out recently is that the model i purchased was an EX version, this is an EC (non uk) model black. I was concerned about waranty so asked Panasonic who said it is covered in UK for 1yr. Thanks to all the contributers who helped me.
