OK folks should I go for the Loewe Aventos 3981ZW?? Thanks to the contributors to my previous post when I was considering the Sony KV32FX68 but my knowledge now seems to have 'matured' hence the Loewe. OK I know it's the best part of £250-300 more than the FX68 but all things considered, based largely on the info on the forum, Loewe's seem to have better build, geometry, QA etc. And the Aventos is available in Black - yes I know it's a bit 'retro', old fashioned, call it what you like but the rest of my gear is mainly black. As per my earlier post, I do want to run the audio through my amp without the internal TV speakers - I'm assuming this will be OK on the Aventos. Luckily for me living in the Manchester area, I can actually bob into TV & Video Direct's showroom in Bolton and am planning to do so this weekend. I've checked and they do have one on display (they are pretty obliging over the 'phone) - can't wait to see it in action and to compare with the competition I'll report back on my trip to TV & Video Direct after I've been. I'd welcome any feedback from Aventos owners, and also any tips for set-by-set comparisons or what to look out for. I am a bit of a novice when it comes to widescreen. Thanks a million.
