Applies to the purchase of a Radiance 2041 or Radiance 2042 (only). These are 2k input to 4k output processors.
You can purchase through a participating dealer(such as AVScience), or contact us directly if you do not have a dealer you are working with (firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 503-574-2211).
Limited time (but at least through February)
We have significantly increased the trade-in value for RadianceXD, RadianceXS, and RadianceMini units. We also increased the trade-in for a DVDO Duo and a Crystalio scaler
Trade-in values are deducted from the MSRP of the unit.
Lumagen Vision Unit $1,300
DVDO VP50 or Duo $1,300
DVDO Edge or Edge Green $1,100
Crystalio HDMI VP $1,300
Other VP $1,000
MSRP on the Radiance 2041 is $3495, and for the Radiance 2042 the MSRP is $3995. So you would deduct the trade in value from the MSRP to get the net cost for you to upgrade to either the 2041 or the 2042.
If you have a current Radiance, the reasons to upgrade would be the larger CMS (729 points verses 125), and the addition of Darbee DVP(TM). These two reasons plus many more apply as reasons to upgrade from any other video processor.
Many of you reading this have a Radiance already, but consider trading in that other scaler you put in the second TV room, and putting the new Radiance 204X in your main theater, and your old Radiance into your second TV room.
I think it interesting to note that we are giving (as I recall) more than the DVDO Duo was selling toward the retail on a 204X unit. We are getting Duo's and Edge units in trade more frequently of late. The main comment we are getting is that "I was penny wise and pound foolish to not have bought a Radiance in the first place."
This is a great time for everyone to consider upgrading.
