Philips hts9800w or Sony davx1v? (and connection query)


Established Member
Sorry yet another "which to buy" question.
Ive deceided its either Sony DAVX1V 2.1 system or
Philips hts9800w 6.1.

I have a philips 42pf9831d tv so thought the philips cinema was the obvious choice. But I have found the sony for less than the philips.

Love the look of the philips but think 6.1 speakers is too much for my living room plus the sony has lots mor digital inputs, for my ps2 and 360 etc.

Does anyone have any views on either.

Also, if i was to get the philips with only i dig co-ax input, could i connect the ps to the dig in on tv, then from tv to cinema?
Ta in advance
