    Im looking for a new system & have narrowed my choice down to :

    Panasonic SCMT1
    Panasonic SCDT310 ( from what I understand I would need a S Video to scart lead, is this lead a downgrade in picture quality ?)
    JVC TH-A75
    Sony DAVSC5

    I like the looks of the Panny ones more although the JVC looks good with 6.1 & the Sony seems a good all rounder.

    Any thoughts anyone ?

    Thanks

    The Sony is optmised for SACD playback more than anything. Its sound system while good probably isn't as dynamic as some of the other systems there for movie playback. Thats a trait of digital amplifiers, well less powerful digital amps anyway. S-video is a downgrade in quality from RGB on most televisions. Some televisions like some Toshibas actually do a better job with s-video than RGB.

    can anyone recommend a good £500 system with wireless rear speakers - I really can 't face hammering more wires to the skirting board
