    Trying to decide between the wired and wireless version of these systems.

    But whats peoples opinion?

    Do they have enough outputs?
    Is the pic quality good?

    I though the sound quality was very good.

    It plays loads of formats.

    Does it have High Definition?
    Does it have progressive scan?

    I want to connect another DVD player to it, and NTL, as well as a VCR.

    Is this a good system, or should i get something else?

    Does the DVD player play HD format, with an HD output.

    If it does not is there capability to connect up a HD DVD player?

    Honestly? Neither. I've been offered the 500 as a replacement for my SC8 and the lack of connectivity for other components is shocking for the money. I would have expected at least one digital audio input. The 700 goes someway to rectify this but I really don't like the wireless surround speakers and like the 500 the sub is passive.

    So what is a good alternative?

    I've heard the denon 500 and to be honest was not impressed with the sound.

    What do panasonic, or phillips offer. Surely there must be a decent set that most people on here agree is good.

    I read a thread about the Sony 700, ther didn't seem to be much problem with the wireless speakers. So not an issue for me.

    However connectivity and HD is a huge issue.

    Also the sub being passive, whilst not ideal is not the largest concern as is does certainly give enough bass.
