You dont expect a Denon1930 to have the same technology / quality as a Denon3930 either, do you?
Many thanks for this and other additional info, Ekkehart.
No, of course I don't expect a Denon 1930 to have the same technology / quality as a Denon 3930 ... but I expect the Denon 1930 to be A LOT cheaper than the 3930 (which it is, indeed), this is the point.
Currently, I could buy the Sanyo Z2000 for a bit less than CHF 1950 here. This means that the Z700 should be not much more than CHF 1000-1100 (streetprice) theoretically (according to what I currently expect for technology/quality) ... but I'm sure it will be far more expensive. List price in Germany has been announced to EUR 1499, if I understood correctly, i.e. in Switzerland it will debut with CHF ~2300 and then go down to maybe CHF 1600-1700. This not being "much cheaper" compared to the expected significantly lower technology/quality. But maybe, hey, der Z700 is much better than I currently expect
Actually, for CHF 1500-1700 I'd rather want to buy a PJ with inorganic 720p panels (which not exist, unfortunately) and having all those advantages, instead of now having a PJ at this price with organic 1080p panels. Unfortunately, the industry goes by the marketing-effective "1080p" number and not by what you'd benefit most. So, the step back from inorganic to organic for 1080p panels is the completely wrong direction, in my opinion.
