    I'm buying for the first time new 32" 100Hz TV. I decided to go for Philips, but i noticed that models with more features all have built-in subwoofer with 4 or 6 speakers. Thing is, that i don't need all those speakers and dolby dekoder(s), because i have separate 5.1 dolby digital system with hi-fi speakers and active subwoofer. So, i'm asking you, which model number offer greatest pictures and specs without built in subwoofer and 6 speakers. You know what i mean?!
    Is there a noticable difference between Crystal Clear III and Digital crystal clear? Which features (Digital Natural Motion, 100Hz Digital Scan,...) are MUST HAVE from your viewing point?

    I looked there, thanks, but it's difficult to look at the specs for every model. Am i wrong or is the 32PW8717 the one, that i look for?
    Does this model have picture in picture (dual picture)?

    Which model is the closest to 32PW9525 that does have all the features, but does not have built-in subwoofer and speakers?
    How do i know which model has picture in picture (side by side), because on Philips.co.uk i can't find those specs.

    I also compared these two models and found that 32pw8717 doesn't support 100Hz feature, but has 100Hz digital scan.
    32pw9576 has both, 100Hz and 100Hz digital scan. 32pw9576 has only 100Hz digital scan also, same as 32pw8717. What is the difference here?

    On this page we see, that 32PW9576 have DIGITAL Crystal clear, but on Philips it is only Crystal Clear III, not digital. Which is right?

    Ok, i compared almost all interesting 32" sets with PW9525 and found out that 9576 should be the one i'm looking for. 9576 also has little less features than 9525, but when i saw the price of it, i was shoked :eek: . If i convert it in UK £.

    32PW9525 - £1110
    32PW9576 - £1625
    32PW9527 - £1350

    It is even more expensive as 9527 witch has PIXEL PLUS. Can anyone explain this to me?

    Maybe someone can help me. It has nothing to do with Philips TVs anymore. I will get my TV next week, but i would like to prepare the stand (upgrade old one) for it before i get it. Dimension for SONY 32KV FX66 are (WHD): 883 x 567 x 562 mm.
    But, i don't know what is the size of footprint at the bottom. I would like to make a shelf just few mm bigger as footprint of this TV. Can anyone help me? I hope you understood me.:blush: I'm not even sure if this Tv set is on three feets or on the flat base. If it is on three feets, then i need dimensions of rectangle.:D
