    Some people love it, most people hate it. But we have a Pioneer DSC-360, it has the HDMI but not optical in.

    Tested it with the same cd in currys against the Panasonic and the quality was not bad on the Panasonic, but outstanding on the Pioneer.

    We don't have any need for the optical in so it suits us down to the ground & matches everything we have... :rolleyes:

    Sony DAVS550 :eek: :suicide:

    It's about 4 years old - but it's been a faithful servant - no issues with it.

    Given limited video inputs (s-vid and composite) it's primarily an audio switcher (and DVD player) - only one optical input though. On the positives - it does have component out and IMHO is quite stylish (slimline). The speakers deliver decent sound and are also stylish(ly small).

    If you don't have an "HD Ready" TV, and are happy with a "standard" DVD player and one optical in (and the rest as stereo phono connections) then I'm sure you could pick up a "mint" one of these second hand for less than £100.

    Denon 500SD.

    Following a Rabbit related incident, just about to upgrade the supplied speaker cable. Nothing fancy, but should be interesting to see if there is a difference between the supplied 17 strand and the new 105 strand.

    This is possibly the best/strangest opening sentence that I have ever read on the forums.

    Would have been even stranger if the word "rampant" had made an appearance in the sentence :rotfl:

    Having 'rabbit related incidents' on a daily basis, I know where you're coming from. I still can't work out how mine can nip through a live 240v mains flex, in a single bite and still walk away as if nothing has happened.

    For this very reason I'm still on the fence wondering whether I should go with a system with wireless rears, just to minimise the cable count. Part of me just accepts the inevitability of having to replace speaker cable on a regular basis.

    What TV have you got???

    Not sure if it matters, but are you not best sticking to the same manufacturer?

    In the next month or so, I am getting the Panny TH37PX60 and will be purchasing the SC HT855 as well. Need the Optical Input for Sky+, and the HDMI Output will be straight into the TV for hopefully fantastic PQ!

    However - I am far from being an expert, this is just my 2 pence worth!!!!

    It makes no difference whatsoever if you stick with the same manufacturer for both TV and DVD/Amp/All-In-One system - apart from of course the uniformity of logos in your cabinet/rack. Some people like to stick with the same manufacturer for all of their kit, however this certainly does not guarantee the best results.

    With re to yourself, good choice of panel and all-in-one system.:smashin:

    Not quite an all in one - but components, so dont know if that qualifies.

    Hsu Research VT-12 Ventriliquist 6.1 satellite speakers
    JPW 221 sub
    Yamaha RX-V559 AV receiver.

    Extremely impressed with the clarity and performance of this 600 quid system.

    Cheers.....:hiya: :smashin:

    Another vote for DHT-500SD. Smart machine - once it's been cranked up 10db to get rid of the fan noise!

    Well i have the sony dav s550 and it works for me .

    Used mainly as an amp as progressive output was only with NTSC format so use the oppo as the dvd player linked via optical cable .

    Works a treat , looks great and sounds great so wont be upgrading for a while in fact probably till an all in one HD player comes out that looks and sounds great

    regards:hiya:
