Thanks you all who answered all my posts and helped me make my decision on what Plasma scrren to get. I've got a PanasonicTW42PWD4BX arriving on Friday afternoon! After a bit of haggeling (salesman wasn't expecting that! ), I got it from a local store that I rate for a competative price. So my final couple of questions! 1. What settings do people use? I know that the sets usually come with the brightness & contrast set way to high, but what other setting should I look at. 2. I watch a lots of films on DVD and prefer to watch them in their proper aspect ratio, so this will mean watching many films with black bars at the top and bottom. Will this cause me any problems in the long run? 3. I was going to connect an old set of speakers to my plasma to use when I 'm using my Amp for other things. I've got two sets of old Sony speakes, both 60W, one with 6 Ohms impedance, the other with 8. Could I uses either of these? Many Thanks again to all of you for your advice! Glenn. P.S. I want it to be Friday!
