    I want to simplify my bedroom HC setup. See my website for what I currently have.

    Richer sounds have both the above in stock and there is a £75 price difference.

    Is the DV99 worth the extra outlay?

    Has anyone heard them both (RS unable to give demo)?

    Any views/thoughts

    Stay away from the Pioneer 313!
    The fan noise will drive you crazy! My wife describes it as a 'tractor'!

    I concer I had 2 pioneer 313's before I decided to get a refund
    Not only did the fan produce a really high pitch sound that gave me a headache
    the speakers had problems too, they were producing a distracting humming sound
    I also found the picture to be on the soft side

    The 99 is excellent bar the problem with the speaker covers slipping. both for dvd and music the extra £75 gets you an active sub, silent fan and sacd or dvd-audio.dvd you can set up 3 viewing preferences on the dvd itself

    Er the fan is silent and i can hardly hear it and i find the 313 to be of excellent value for money and a great performer. The speakers look crap on the dv99 anyhow and looks like they break easy and the 313 are solid and have a good weight to them. My pioneer topics on the next few pages (or here if there still around) should help u.

    Good luck in your desicion.
