After buying my parents the Denon AVF100 system a couple of years back, I have been keeping an eye on something for myself. The Teac Legacy 800 system always caught my eye as the system to beat of similar spec. Now that Richer Sounds are offering it at £599 inc the speakers, have been tempted to buy. Looking at the Denon DHT550SD system, can get this for £549 inc speakers. Spec seems to be better yet the Teac was £1300 when it first came out. Thinking the Denon is a better system as progressive on PAL and NTSC where as the Teac is on NTSC progressive scan. Also the Denon seems to have 6.1 against the Teacs 5.1. I think I am correct in thinking there are 6 channels on the amp so an extra satellite speaker can be purchased for the Denon. Would welcome any advice. Teac should come with the LCD programmable remote but I don't want to be going for style over substance. I want to get a two box system as do not like the idea of everything being cramped in one box with the whole lot needing to be replaced if somthing goes wrong. I have seen the DHT500SD but don't like the fact that its one box, the speaker connections and unpowered sub. So Teac Legacy 800 or Denon DHT550SD?
