I had more or less decided to buy the 434hde ( with floor stand ) , AX5i receiver and 868 dvd player. I then read the preview of the upcoming 435xde in HCC , now i'm wondering if i should hang on for it ? I can get the 434hde for approx. £3200 ( + stand etc ). From what i've read , the 435xde will be about £4000 but it doesn't seem like it will be a big improvement on the 434hde spec wise. ( if that's possible ). Then , just to make matters worse - there's the new AX5ai receiver coming out , and then the Denon 3910 dvd with HDMI and DVI outputs - very tempting as i will be buying a projector aswell. With the 868 player i would have needed an HDMI switcher to output to either plasma or projector. Any opinions very much appreciated . Stan.
