I've been lurking in these boards for the last 2-3 weeks, and now need to take the plunge. My old Philips 30" CRT has finally given up and needs to be replaced,I'm currently reduced to watching on my 20" PC LCD in the bedroom. I started off considering the 32" Panny LCD swiftly moved to the 37" Plasma and am now toying between the 42PX70 and 42PX700, there's a couple of questions you may be able to help with. Some background info, I live on my own (ex-wife has the house, kids, all the money etc etc ) and therefore the majority of the time it's just me watching (mainly SKY Sports, Sky 1, with an SD Feed , until I can get the communal dish upgraded and can get HD). I watch from a distance of 8-10 ft depending on where I choose to sit, there is also a DVD and VCR player connected. The room is rectangular and as such the TV will sit in a corner. The 42" would definately 'overpower' the room, but..... Having finally convinced myself I need a 42PX700CAB/PED, I've now got three decisions to sort out; 1. Is the 700 likely to be available very soon ? ( I want to see the FA Cup final on my new TV !) 2. The bottom of the Panny stand seems to stick out to far in front for me ( I do need to conserve space a bit ) and therefore a glass corner cabinet may be preferable, is there an obvious choice to match a 42PX700PED ? 3. I settled on the 700 versus the 70 as I fancied the PIP and decided I would pay for improved sound. Is there an alternative for improved sound at around the 700 v 70 price difference i.e. c£200-£250 ?. I have nowhere for a 5.1 system to go and would need any solution to sit almost within the stand area. I assume the answer is not given the space restrictions, but if there is I could go for a 70PED. Thanks in advance.
