That's with hi-fi and not TVs.
Just buy the Sony then.
The OH is scanning the TV tonight.

Actually just show her the review with £800 on it and how it's now £350. Even Mrs JD would fall for that.
Already done that. She replied with a "Aaaha..." which is usually translated as 'good'.
Leema Pulse MKII-S; Naim CD5i MKII; Denon TU-260L MKII; MA RS6 speakers; Pro-ject Xpression 1; loads of different cables...

Most DVD players will have a HDMI output, if yours doesn't then you'll get one on eBay that does for about £20. So one scart is all you need.
Formerly known as Ooh, Boots, etc etc...
Laptop... HTC One X....ATV3....ADM9Ts...Two German Shorthaired Pointers...
That's a good point, max. Could you recommend any HDMI cables to go with?
It's a shame you didn't pick up a couple of those QED Performance HDMI cables from Tesco for £3.55 each last year...
I can say what I like about them because Max will find it impossible to argue that £3.55 was a rip-off
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 32GB • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
Sure he'll give it a good go...
BTW, if I pay for the TV in full do you think they'll hold it for a couple of days? (pick-up Saturday) Just that I don't want to miss this chance but I've got find the best way of dispensing with the old'un. Also I'm also tied up wth work and the car is due into the garage tomorrow for a cambelt change.
Tell them you are a full-time/registered carer (well you are aren't you?) they may deliver it for you.
Yes - certified in more ways than one I'll give'em a call lunchtime. Ta.
And tell them you are PP off of the WHF forum and say "(cough) PR opportunity".
Well I paid an extortionate amount today for a bespoke coax cable to go between my Humax and the TV. (My old Ixos lead - from the old 'set-top box' days of 5 years ago - is a yucky grey/silver colour, way too long, and as flexible as Stalin!)
The wonderful people of ATV Aerials in Sheffield (their website is my 'bible' in all things Aerial related) are making up a white, 1 metre long 'fly lead' from top quality double screened (copper braid/copper foil) 75 ohm cable and brass coax plugs.
They had the temerity to charge 65p for cable, 75p (each) for the brass coax plugs, £2.00 for labour and £3.50 for postage
I was prepared to pay this King's ransom just to neaten up the back of the TV a bit. (Another too long, too ugly, cable bites the dust.)
As John said (thanks for that JD) 32" sets are about the same size as the old CRT.
Didn't I say that first?
Good choice on the tv btw.
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
Well got the new toy. Not the Sony that John suggested. No other reason other than most branches had sold out and the ones that had it said they were ex-dem and damaged, hence the huge price drop.
In the end, after visiting Richer at Reigate, seeing various other makes, decided on a LG 32". Absolutely gorgeous picture; clarity and detail is superb.
Yet to fine tune it but it has a 'Energy saving' button which dulls the whole panarama. Not a good option unless you have a migraine. The preferred setting is 'Sport'. That seems to give the best stability. Motion seems fine [briefly] with motor racing... the acid test will be the football.
Thanks to Stuart at Richer Sounds (Reigate) who chucked in a free TV stand.
Overall a very happy bunny.
