    I currently have a separetes system in the bedroom but its just too darn large and takes up too much room. Tosh 520 DVD, Yamaha Amp and Yamaha Spakers, see my site for pics.

    I have up to £400 to spend but the speakers MUST
    be small/neat, SUB is not a problem

    Any sugestions?

    Mine cost £411 (with next day postage and free multiregion upgrade) from Peter Tyson online, I would definitely recommend them.

    500SD is a dream. Also bought from QED but would recommend you buy elsewhere, their after sales is a joke to say the least.

    [RANT]
    System works fine apart from random subtitles appearing on various dvd's without pressing anything. Sent it back in as faulty, they kept it for ages and they didnt find fault. Holding onto £400 of mine and left me with no unit/ Wouldnt refund and wouldnt replace therefore had to pay an extra £15 to get a new unit sent out. Absolute joke.
    [/RANT]

    I think sacraficing a few cm's will definatly do you plasma justice with a home cinema like this. You can of course remove the speaker mesh to shave off an extra 15mm or so. Its recommended anyway, the innards look sexy.


    Good luck

    If you take the mesh off them they are 140mm and if you felt like drilling a small hole in you wall you could fit the connectors at the back of the speaker into it. This would shave them down to under 125mm.

    The Panasonic DM-39 is good, got it for my parents plays everything under the sun. It is a hifi but plays DVD's well, it is only stero though with a psudo surround.
