    I'm a HC newbie, so please don't shoot me down in flames.

    I was going to buy the denon 500 to go with a Samsung 50'' HD DLP tv.

    However if I go for the 550 will I be able just to replace the dvd player with a HD dvd player (once available) or is it more complicated than that?

    Because if I can then I will be future proofing myself??

    Yes you can replace the dvd player (would not like to say that you could definatly change it for a next-gen player being that there are not any yet, but can't see why not).

    Certainly more future proof than a single box unit (like the 500)...but who knows whats next round the corner?

    Buy what suits you now, trying to buy for the future means you never end up buying :)

    Thx Conn.

    I will be buying very shortly, just trying to make the best decision, as the kit has got to last a very long time (Wifey's not happy at spending approx £2.5k on " tv & video"!!!)

    Will the picture quality from a HD DVD player be significantly better than that of the 550 through component.?

    Thx

    On a 50" screen? Probably.

    But will HD become mainstream or remain a niche market?
