    please could some one advise me .I have a panasonic rv60 multiregion dvd player.I would like a widescreen tv.I have been looking at the panasonic pb50 28".Would this be a good buy for my dvd player.Is the sound good from that tv or would i be needing a amp as well.Have looked at the kenwood 5050 amp .Seems to have everything on it?What i dont want to do is buy an expensive tele cos thats what the pb50 is 839 from empire is by far the cheapest.My local pana dealer is 1100 and they wont move from that price.Only give 10 months intrest free thats all.Or should i buy a cheaper panasonic like the pL10 28" then add amp and speakers at a latter date?Or for people who have a pb50 can i plug the dvd in through scart and coax or optical and that would give me my dts and dd sound?cheers if you can help. :rolleyes:

    As a rule, when choosing a TV, you should go for the best picture, and not worry too much about audio features. You will always get better results from a dedicated Home Cinema amplifier or receiver and "proper" speakers, than you will get from a TV with advanced audio features built in.

    Trouble is no-one seems to do a 36" with "top banana" picture and basic NICAM sound. From what I've seen as soon as the sound side gets stripped down so does the visual. ie Does anyone know of a NICAM Tv with PIP/POP for example. (Not that they are crucial)

    Three weeks ago, Sound & Vision, Farnworth, Bolton were offering 36" Toshiba for around £1600, with basic stereo. Might be worth giving them a call.

    I think the Sony TV is only stereo, or at worst DPL with no extra supplied speakers.

    Switch to stereo and you're ok

    Am I stange in thinking most people with a preference for a large TV will eventually go to seperates for sound to get the most of of available media?

    No you are not strange at all, well, no stranger than me! The bigger the picture the bigger you will want your sound to be and separates are the only way to go. No tv has a built in system that comes close, it isn't possible, although there are tv's that do have good sysems when compared with others.

    I have had the 28pb50 for nearly 3weeks now connected by scart and phono (coaxial)for dts and to me it sounds pretty good (you can tell the diff between dts and dd ).Its the first pan tv i have had (i,m a philips fan )the picture and sound are very good in my opinion and i cannot hear the hum several people have brought up ,for a small flat like mine its ideal ,i paid £1049 with a 5yr gtee included
