I have a built-in T.V. Cabinet which is exactly 38.25 inches wide. I am looking for a new T.V., but just can't stomach the thought of going with a CRT. Does anyone have any recommendations on a 32-34 inch Plasma or LCD (must be HDTV compatible....since I have a HDTV DTV Receiver). Since my maximum width is about 38 inches.....I suspect a 32-34 inch 16:9 will be as big as I could get....right?


Oh....and built in speakers is a must.


My considerations so far.....


Philips 32FD9954

Sony KE32TS2U


But would love to hear some opinions on the above or other options.


Thanks in advance,


Michael

I don't think you should surrender at 34". If you have posted in the plasma forum ... I guess you might be interested in Plasma ... Belive me .. with your 38" space you can enjoy a TV upto 37" ..


Look at my following thread for more options:

Least wide 34" HDTV

You don't have many options with that WIDTH. My parents had the same deal, only they had 39" to work with. That extra 1" makes a difference.


Here you go:

Sony KLV-32M1 LCD 32.87" wide with speakers bottom mounted

Sony KE-32TS2 Plasma 33.75" wide w/ speakers bottom mounted

Philips 32PF9996/37 LCD 39.37" wide w/speakers bottom mounted

Hitachi 32HDT50 Plasma 38 3/8" wide not sure how speakers r mounted

Sharp LC-37GD6U LCD 36 7/64 " wide bottom mount Speakers

Sharp LC-37HV6U LCD 37 21/64" wide bottom mount Speakers

JVC LT-32WX84 LCD 32 7/8" wide Not sire how speakers r mounted


That's about all of your options with "name brand" LCD/plasmas. Of course there might be a couple that I missed.


Hope this helps.

I definitely want to move up to a 37 inch (bigger IS better :) ) However, where do you buy speakers to "mount on the bottom"?

Hitachi 32PD5200 exactly 830mm width without the detachable speakers.


I have mine in a unit with the speakers mounted directly behind the screen. Screwed to the back of the cabinet. I know its not the best solution for the sound but its only for broadcast viewing, DVDs get played through a Yamaha AX750SE amp and 7.1 surround system.
