    I was looking to spec out a new home cinema system as and when Universal get round to releasing Battlestar Galactica on HD-DVD. Thoughts and comments are welcome.

    I currently have Sky+

    Upgrade:

    Pioneer 507XD - Wall Mounted
    Toshiba HD-E1
    Yamaha YSP-1100 Sound Projector (Or a YSP-1000) + YEF-ST1 Stand

    At a later date, if I decide I need it I will upgrade to Sky-HD but just wanted your ideas on wether what I've chosen would make a good system. I like the idea of the sound projector, hate cables and hate lots of remotes. Should I bother going for an XE1 Dvd drive or be happy with the E-1, not sure if the 1080p/24 is neccessary?

    I've just noticed the Samsung 42Q7's now going for like £800, I could pick up such a good bargain but I just love the Pioneer 507. Just not sure if its worth the £3k pricetag for all that kit.

    Any thoughts welcome

    If you have the space, get a projector personally. You can get a good 720p one with a screen for 1k. Then spend the rest on a smaller TV?

    I've owned a projector in the past. It's just not ideal for the room, too much light etc.

    I've also owned a Samsung LE32M51B LCD tv and found that it had sludge like contrast so I decided to sell that. So here I am back on the trusty old 28inch CRT until I decide to finally upgrade to a proper plasma.
