Hi my name is Kirko, and I need some expert insight.
I would like some help understanding why my uncle is so crazy about a t.v. he doesn’t even watch. Apparently, he owns a Pioneer 141 that he has wrapped and strapped on skids and to the wall, like there’s going to be an earthquake? He say’s it’s the best t.v. in the world, and cost 7000-8000. Who pays that for a tv, no wait…., a monitor, no tuner, no speakers, just a picture. I have never personally seen one, but he talks about the picture like the damn things alive. I asked him why won’t he hook it up and watch it? He say’s he’s saving it for when he retires. Is there something to what he’s saying or is he retarded? Can you help me out?
*Special Bonus* Picture link: I took pictures of it to show you this idiocy.
They don't make that set any more and it's highly regarded; it's not by any means the most you can spend on a set, but it is up towards the high end. Searching here on the forums yields lots of information, too....try this thread for specifics on why your uncle set his aside http://www.avsforum.com/t/1059491/signature-elite-141-owners-thread
