Perhaps this is a case of semantics or perhaps I'm wrong and it's just wishful thinking as I'm probably going to purchase the 79avi or 59avi..just not imminently.
So, allow me to rephrase, I think that alot of people that COMMONLY buy *the best* high-end products are NOT knowledgeable videophiles.if only for the fact that in order to accrue such an income, they don't have the time or willingness to stay so well-informed over such things that they consider trivial decision choices.
I think that there is a significant population out there with fat wallets that walk into their local B&M store and ask what is the best DVD player they carry? and the Pio 79avi will invariably come up as an answer at dealers that carry it. And they'll buy it without a blink of an eye.either there, or run back home and google the best price on-line.and buy it with keystrokes.
So this warped logic goes on to speculate that come Aprilish 06, the above discussion will be modified somewhatala
Mr. Fat Wallet - What's the best goll-dang DVD player made?
Mr. Salesmen - Well for standard DVD's it's the Pio 79avi at a sales price of $990.
For new-fangled High Definition DVD players, we just got in the Sony Blu-ray at $1,000.
Mr. Fat Wallet - Well, as I consider myself a shrewd buyer that likes to stay on the bleeding edge of technology, I want the best DVD player showcasing the newest techo wizardry, so I'll buy the High-Def player.
A little time will pass and there will be a *price adjustment* of the 79avi in order to move them.
At least that's what I'm hoping
