Hi All,

This is my first post. Thanks for taking the time to read it.

Has anyone heard of the "Soniq" brand? I'm writing from New Zealand and am thinking about buying a little stereo that has an in-built LCD monitor (mainly for watching DVDs)

I don't know why Sony / Panasonic et al haven't done it yet and I would much prefer to buy a decent brand.

Its only $178 NZ ($100 US?) so quite cheap. I'm even thinking about getting 2 years extra warranty for another $140.

Its obviously not a system for Audiophiles such as you guys - but for a cheap little "ghettoblaster" that can play DVD video - its pretty cool!

Does anyone know anything about the brand - or this model ... QMD500DB.

Cheers, Happy New Year,
