    I'm working my backside off at the moment so I hit my yearly bonus and can invest in a HDTV Plasma panel and surround sound set-up for Christmas!

    Got about £3000 in mind - where are the best deals to be had?

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    Hi,

    Well do you know which HDTV's you looking at the mo?

    i opted for the Panny 42PV500 awesome TV with Stand Its hard enough finding someone with the TV in stock but I bought mine form http://www.totaldigital.biz/product_info.php/products_id/1199

    Not a Bad price but depends on which model your looking at.

    If you want the service to go with the deal then WWW.AV-SALES.CO.UK I can honestly say I have never had such good service from any company for any type of purchase. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the replies. I fancy a 50" HDTV model (don't we all!)

    I really like the look of the Pioneer PDP505XDE - it can be got for £3000 (but I've seen it priced as high as £5000)

    Is anyone familiar with it?

    nows there's a plan.

    rent/borrow a transit, drive over to Germany, get bladdered over the weekend at the October beer festival , Then pick up a plasma on the way back and get a pat on the back from the missus for saving money. :D

    Looks like the 506 is the one for me then.
    What does it have that the 505 doesn't have? And why was it bad with Sky?

    Got any pics of your 505/506 set-up, chaps?
