I now feel that they still maintain the high price but their products are not quite the "highest end" anymore and cut corners these days for higher profits.
I might be wrong, but that is how I feel about Sony.
I shared the same opinion of Sony until I bought a PS3. For the price, there is no other A/V component that matches the value this feature packed BD player/gaming console provides.
Sony's support for this platform has been spectacular.
Pioneer should take note.
Once the secret of the Kuro sauce is out, combined with the various HQV video processors (e.g. Realta, Reon) Pioneer's current lock on high-end, ultra-high-priced, PDPs will be short lived.
