Monitor or TV for a1200?

I have an a1200 with an old see through scan doubler / flicker fixer that I bought several years ago (there is a strange toggle switch at the back and I'm not sure what this does anymore to be honest). I used to use it with a 17 inch crt at one stage but for space reasons this isn't practical anymore. I have also used it occasionally with my old crt tv which is a 32 inch set.

I have a spare 15 inch lcd which is fine fron a space point of view but as far as I recall this doesn't perform well at any resolution other than it's native resolution. The other disadvantage with this is in terms of speakers as I don't have any for the amiga. Are there any speakers recommended for the amiga?

The question is am I better off buying a new monitor which is better with other resolutions or investing in a new tv as I read somewhere that new tvs work better with amiga video signal but I'm not sure why this would be exactly.

scandoubler?was it made by dce?

with a vga socket on the back,if so.try it on the lcd through the vga port.you only need a male to male vga lead for that.

for sound.you should have a port on the lcd tv marked something like pc,get a stereo phono to 3.5mm jack lead and just plug it in.simple.
