    Can I use a Panasonic DMRE60 as the basis for a Home Cinema system by adding an A/V receiver and speakers or do I need to buy an all-in-one system like the Panny SCHT900 and run it alongside the E60? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers - Si

    You can use the panny as your CD\DVD Player, add an av reciever and 5.1 Speakers and you have a complete home cinema.

    The all in one solutions don't have much power and in general sound very poor. They're ok if your not to bothered about quality and just want something simple to operate.
    Even the decent all in one systems 500+ sound very bad compared to what you can buy as seperates...

    What's your budget ?

    Thanks for response. TV is Panny TX-W32 R4DP and budget for receiver and speakers is £500 to £600 tops. I've been looking at the Marantz SR5400 receiver cos good reviews and someone has just suggested Yamaha 5630/5640 + Canton CD1 speakers. Speakers are a bit tricky though cos I have quite a large lounge 21' x 16' x 10' high. I am looking for decent sound rather than lots of it - I don't necessarily want the family and neighbours blasted into next week! Any further views would be welcome. Cheers

    here's a half and half solution
    Panasonic's SAXR25 with the (20) speakers
    Reciever sells @ £329.99 but is available in pack @ £349.99
    But it's worth upgrading the speakers to something like the Elac Cinema 1.

    for that budget I would go for yamaha HTR5640,
    overall v.good amp.

    richersounds has some decent stuff in your price range.

    not to sure about speakers

    have a look at

    www.richersounds.com

    beware though their prices are reasonable but sometimes you can get a better deal else where.

    Yamaha 5640 is a great amp as for speakers depends on the design you are after but RS are not the best for speaker deals!

    In my experience there is a good reason behind every "special" price they do and none of them are aimed at the customer winning!
