I currently have an old Sony 4:3 25" coupled to an Aiwa Dolby Prologic system, sony VHS and a sky digibox. Not great or sexy but all I could afford - until now! Through hard sweat and tears I now have a bit more than £1600 to spend and its time to move into the 21st century. For the last couple of months I've read all the TV and Home Cinema mags and pored over the reviews. I chose a few likely candidates and went to look at them in the shops. What a disappoinment! I can't believe how badly the shops I've been into display audio visual equipment costing thousands of pounds. Screens that reviews told me would take my breath away were so packed together that I couldn't view from a normal distance and fed with the sort of signal I'd expect from an indoor arial. This even includes specialist sony and panasonic shops not just the big retailers. What I have in mind is a 32" with a great picture (the room would take a 36" but that would blow my budget ). I don't watch much sport but do like films and nature docs. Of course I need a DVD (yes I really am still in the dark ages) and I'm guessing that I'd be better off investing in a new Home Theatre system than go for a set with it built in. So I'm thinking maybe £1200 for the TV, £300 for the sound system and £150 for the DVD. Any recommendations on what I should look at? I don't really have any brand loyalty but have been pretty happy with my sony over the years. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
