I hate to break it to you, but you could have bought any of these sets months ago.
Great!! (no, I'm not being sarcastic)
When I discovered the CTX thing, it was obvious that either one of them might be the original builder... OR, perhaps these were built by a 3rd party! When I first posted about the CTX units, I already suspected that they had been shipping, so that's cool.

Wait, so is THAT where Joe Kane consulted? In the literature I read, it sounded like he was working directly with PG.
|It really sucked when I found this out because all PG does is up the price and give you a shorter warranty ( 1 year opposed to Moni's 2...).
You get your 2 years back, if you go with CTX (in case anyone finds a better price on the CTX branded one than an actual Monivision (which I've never heard of)).
|I was actually looking forward to a updated af3.0HD.. which was coming out.. but now it doesn't look like this is going to happen now with this FTX series.
There is supposed to be an AR3.4FTW, but I don't know anything about it.
Mr. Duff, sir, I am indebted to you!! This is so cool. I went from thinking, a couple weeks ago, that I must be the only home theater person on the internet that's interested in these Princeton Graphics 4:3 direct-view sets... and now I have ALL KINDS of great information! Thanks for sharing!
Now, there's still one pernicious problem - the datasheet for the DM6952SF has the exact same layout as the DM5952SF. All the numbers are different, except for the sound (both list 12W, for left & right, whereas Princeton has this as 15W) and the Dot Pitch. That these datasheets are so similar, and that both Princeton and CTX have different values for this, makes me really suspicious of the 0.68 mm dot pitch listed on the DM6952SF (perhaps, to create the DM6952SF datasheet, someone copied that of the DM5952SF, but failed to change a couple of the values). Looks like I'll be calling Monivision, tomorrow.
Also, I was unable to find information about what line doubler they're using.
