I am going slightly mad!!. I thought choosing a plasma would be fairly straight forward. My budget was 2k so I knew that I had only a few models to choose from. Then I found this forum and that was that. I have been on this site every day for weeks. At work, I am spending at least 3 hours a day trawling through the threads, reading about the pros and cons of each model out at the moment. It has now come down to this, and here lies my dilemma. Do I get a PW7 (1k from RS), get a Yamaha amp for £300 or so, speakers for £200 ish, £100 ish for cables and another £100 for a cabinet. Total - £1700 or Do I go £500 over my 2K budget and get a 37PV500 ped and a separate cab from JL. That 5 year warrenty is very tempting and IMHO worth the £100 or so that you may save by getting the plasma from AV sales or another internet retailer. On top of that, it does have all the bells and whistles- Freeview, SD slot, supposidly HD ready (but we shall see), and does look very nice (the wife likes it so thats a plus). But I would be spending £800 more than if I went for a totally separate system. What do I do.? Is there anyone else out there in a similar situation at the moment? This is a big decision as you all know and £2 and a half grand is not pocket change (will be paying this off for the next year at least on my credit card). Please someone put me out of my misery and tell me what I have to do.
