    My first post (so be nice). I'm looking at ordering a Panasonic TH42PV500 plasma within the next week and thinking what to run through it? I was thinking Denon AVR-1906 receiver and DVD2910, with B&W mt-30 speakers. What's peoples thoughts on this set up?? Thanks

    Meh, not too keen on that. I find the tv speakers are adequate, you don't need a surround system really.

    I am going to use my adequate "old" system of Yamaha DSP-A1 AV amp my Mission speakers and my Denon DVD 2900.
    There is only so much cash loose out of the wifes hands! (To get the plasma she is getting a new kitchen!)

    Would the Denon AVR-1906 / DVD-2910 and B&W mt-30 package work well together? I have listerned to the B&W's but not with Denon equipment...

    An av amp/ receiver is the main part of any home cinems setup!

    The speakers in (any) tv are garbage, whats the point of spending 2k plus on a screen if you dont bring it to life?

    Jay go for the biggest amp you can try a demo on a Denon 3805, in fact anyone who has a decent screen , you are not doing the set justice by using the speakers.
    Demo demo demo, just listen to what you are missing.

    I recently got a 42pv500. and to make the most of it i got:
    harmon kardon dvd22 - great pic through component (bought through deal on this site). Optical lead to denon 1905 running canton cd1 and cd 310f on left and right (also through through deal with jake james in speaker section) havent connected the rear surrounds yet for 7.1 so just running 5.1 and have to say its all sounding bloody marvelous (speakers arnt even run in yet and sound awesome. (pod racing in star wars ep1 blew me away)

    Whatever you may buy, get an AMP that supports lip-sync in order to correct the 60ms audio delay the PV500 has.

    My amp doesn´t support it but if I buy a new Amp this is a must-have feature for my PV500. (it´s not that bad but if you´re buying a new amp anyway...)

    definately worth the outlay.

    I think this is a reasonably sensible priced solution to good audio. I
    dont think if i had spend £2000+ on speakers it would have sounded much better, as not many people have the sized room to take advantages of
    such excess (not to mention incurring the wrath of the neighbours)
    all you can ask is nice low base and clean clisp sweet mids and tweets.
    the cantons have this is spades at what i think is a fantatic price.
    (im probably still a bit excitable as i have just completed my install, minus rear
    surrounds which will follow soon) :D

    lookin forward to giving pearl harbour a go :thumbsup:

    Oh, an theres no lip sync prob with denon 1905

    :eek: Haven't heard about this one yet for the PV500 -- it doesn't seem to appear in the fault summary thread:

    PV500 fault summary

    Could you elaborate, please? What inputs are you seeing this with?

    I've been thinking about getting the HK DVD31 to go along my with (not yet ordered) 42pv500. I'm curious, though, if anyone has tried a direct comparison of HDMI and component with the 42pv500, using a decent DVD player with both outputs. Is my assumption correct that a player with decent component output is perfectly adequate for this display? And that the player need not supply progressive scan output, as the display handles the de-interlacing nicely?
