    My 10yr old Toshiba 2805DB tv looks as though it is finally on its way out (really noticable moire effects from all inputs) so I'm in the market for a new telly, widescreen of course.

    It seems to me that to get equivalent screen depth to a 28" 4:3, I'd need to go for at least a 36" widescreen. I really fancied the look of the 36" tosh picture frame until I discovered this forum, so what alternatives are there around the £1500 mark?

    Would I be better off going for the new tosh 42" RP instead of a direct view? It's around the same price as the 36" tosh from Robert Whyte's in Glasgow (which I live near and from whom I bought my current telly). I still really like the look of the 36" tosh, is it really not worth risking my money on this?

    BTW, my room size is approx 15' x 13' and the kit I have is: Yamaha E800 processor, Pioneer A400 amp, Dynaudio Audience 50 fronts, Mission 73C centre, Mission M70 rears, REL Strata II sub, Toshiba 210E dvd, Toshiba 2805DB 4:3 tv.

    PS. I now have a Yamaha DSP-E390 prologic processor (boxed, as new) sitting in my cupboard. How much could I realistically expect to get for this secondhand?

    Like the eejit I am, I posted this to the wrong forum - should have been TV. Could a moderator move it if at all possible?
