just general netiquette.

I've compared a 525 and 444 and altough the difference wasn't massive, it is there. There's an even bigger generation gap between the 505 and 454 so it will be more noticeable I guess.

what would you recommend for a dramatic improvement? Or will i not get that dramatic improvement? I was considering new TV (ive got bog standard 28"" goodmand widescreen at moment), somewhere along lines of 100hz, but id like to get plasma when they get a wee bit cheaper or a projector when i get a drill powerfull enough to drill into my ceiling!

Would i be better off waiting for new TV or upgrading DVD player?
All the top range DVD players seem to have DTS decoders built in, whih is not what i want...i like the dedictaed amp ive got.

Cheers!

Better quality TV will always help but more expensive players will as well, you're not only getting (unwanted) features like the decoder but better quality components as well.
