I was originally looking to get a PV500 until I read another post on here saying that the PHD8 was basically the same internally. This is great for me as I was originally looking for a panel only and I don't like the styling of the PV500 at all, the big thick bezel, built in speakers etc plus I like being able to pick and choose what connections you want with the terminal cards. From the little I've read about the PHD8 I understood that the cards from the 6 series work with the 8 series, is that true? (I've currently got a PW6 with a couple of component cards). The cheapest I've seen a 42" PHD8 for is £2095 at AV-sales, is this the best deal around? Any other opinions from current/ex PHD8 owners. TIA.
