I'll never buy the line many times repeated around here about how it was IMPOSSIBLE for anyone--Pioneer included to produce expensive plasmas.

Every other product on planet Earth can have atmospheric price points but plasma can't? Who buys that garbage?

Same old Industry supporting machine alive and well here at AVS!
This is easy to explain. The big buck esoteric audio components you're referring to are mostly smoke and mirrors. They're selling the same or a very similar product to the mainstream guys with an incredible markup for the perceived performance their brand portrays. In the case of displays, the sort of high end displays you're wishing for actually have to be better. This costs money to develop & engineer and the parts that go into the set are more expensive too. As it turns out you can't recoup that money in the price of the product.

It's also important to note that building audio amplifiers is easy - relatively speaking. It's just electronics assembly.

Building plasma display panels is an extremely complicated multi-step process, requiring $100mn+ factories, a huge workforce, years of research and development, etc.
