Ok so is there much difference between my 210. and the player supplied with the 370.
Can't help you there I'm afraid - why not arrange an audition somewhere and take your 210 along so you can compare? The other option is to get a separate AV receiver and speaker system and connect your 210 into this. For the same budget, something along the lines of the Onkyo HTX-22HDX
which along with the SKS-22X upgrade
gives you an HD capable 5.1 system for around £300.
Or for a increase in budget, there's the Home Cinema System 2 offer from Richer Sounds (link
) giving you the Sony STR-DH820
and Boston Acoustics Soundware
speakers for less than £500. You're not going to get a decent wireless separates system at this price point though I'm afraid, unless it's an all-in-one unit like the Panasonic...
As bigboss has indicated, The BTT370 can be made wireless - page 14 of the manual states "￼You can enjoy surround speaker sound wirelessly when you use the optional Panasonic wireless accessory (SH-FX71)". So you'd need to also purchase that unit which looks to be around an extra £100. You realise that all this means is, you don't need wires going from the main amplifier unit to the rear speakers? You'll still need wires going from the SH-FX71 unit to the rear speakers, but this box can be placed at the back of the room so you don't have wires going from front to back. The front speakers still need to be wired into the main amplifier unit.
