Sony vs Samsung
The problem I am having, is that I am fast becoming over researched, if that makes sense. I have been to too many shops, asking the same questions, which invariably have slightly different answers, and everyone has their favourites.
I am after a TV, an AV receiever, some sort of sorround sounds system (but trying to keep my orignal speakers) and some sort of DVD player.
Sony KDL W2000. This was my first choice until I read the review for the new Samsung 40 M87D in the lastest WHF?S&V. I went into Sevonoaks, and they suggested the Samsung, it is newer, I think it looks nicer. Now I start reading some other forum entries, and people are slagging off SD on these sorts of TV's. I don't have Sky, and am choosing to wait for a HD/BR winner. I have freeview and hope the signal will be good enough. I will have to get good cables etc. So question 1 is, which is the best TV?
Second, Receivers, this is a complicated area, I have no idea which device should be doing the upscaling, be it the Receiver or the DVD player. I Was thinking of getting the DVD PVR that Sony do. Currently they have an offier that includes the KDL W 2000 with the RDRx870 and 5 year warranty on the TV for £1300 which is a good price I recon. Is the player any good as a DVD player. I know it has the upscaler. Which Reciever to go for is now complicated, since everywhere I go, people bad mouth Sony, and I was thinking of using the STR1200ES, but sevonoaks recommend the Yamaha something or other.
Help a very lost person.
