    Default OT-Audio

    Well i'm having with my clear connection and accessing other websites but I can get to PressF1 (Yay!). Hopefully someone here can help.

    I'm looking at buying either a HTIB
    http://www.panasonic.co.nz/web_conte...p?id=100010488

    or a NAD 742 receiver and two paradigms espirits floorstanding speakers as I already have a centre and 2 surrounds but nothing to plug them into.

    the NAD version will cost me more but may produce better sound, but with the way our room is set up i'm the front speakers need to be by the tv and i don't think the espirits are sheilded. Anyone with any experience in this area or with HTIB packages.

    Cheers

    I would never touch one of the home theatre all in one solutions.

    The NAD looks like a decent entry level amp, but have you considered other brands? I'm assuming your budget is limited to $1000 for an amp and $2000 for amp and speakers?

    Lo.

    You can check the Espirits in the shop, just move one close to a TV. You will need to observe the screen closely as static magnetic field interference is easier to see on some colours than others. The speaker doesn't have to be plugged in or operating, it is the magnet field that causes the problem, not the audio.

    White screens are probably best as you see dark smudges and moving the speaker around will see them move in sympathy. Either that or have a tiral run at home.

    Choices? Go with your ears and wallet.

    The problem with that is i'm looking to source them from

    http://www.colinwalkingtonaudio.co.nz/id30.htm

    as they are not available locally. Thats why i'm a bit confused.

    Yes, the NAD should sound much better and also quote real power output not measured for one nanosecond (not saying Panasonic does of course)

    My front speakers are not shielded; you just have to be careful with placement.

    Due to the shape of the room i'm looking at 1-11/2 feet away from the tv. Are your speakers that close?

    Thanks for replying

    300-450mm away from the TV should be OK.
