What features should I look for?

There are so many features available that vary from item to item, so the best approach is to think about what you want to be able do before you go shopping, write a list if neccessary and ask a lot of questions.

Note that over time most digital equipment is expected to get cheaper (in the same way as computers do).

Additional and improved features may also become available.

HDMI cables (High Definition Multimedia Interface) are the way of the future. HDMI is capable of passing FULL HD pictures and Surround Sound via a single cable with no loss of signal quality. They look neater, perform better and are easy to connect. So make sure your new equipment has enough of them (for TV’s – at least 3 HDMI inputs and if possible a HDMI or Optical output for TV output to Surround Sound).
