I can't afford the Q004, but I am buying the Q006 soon. It has gotten really good reviews and is considered the best in it's class. I am debating getting the Algolith combo, but that is also pricey for me after spending on the TV and the stand.
I would have followed you guys into the Escient realm but Digital is the only way to go. Hopefully Escient will introduce a good product in this area at some point.
First of all, the Qualia 006 is everything it is cracked up to be. While I am in love with my 004, I was able to give the 006 a substantial review at CES, and there is no RPTV like it. It's quite a viable alternative to ANY projector, and, at 70", the size is nothing to complain about.
Remember, the Qualia is going to take video inputs into a new realm, and processors, too; the irony may be, at the end of the day, all you will have needed was to plug it in. Escient has said that it will support HDMI if Sony puts out changers which use it. Based on the fantastic Sony DVP-NS975V, I'm betting that's the prototype for the next Sony changer. The 975 upscales to 1080i or 720p through HDMI, and looks like a dream. Most of the Qualia observers find that just feeding it 1080i, and then letting its internal processing to 1080p24sf do the rest, produces the best picture. The current 004 won't accept a 1080p signal, and, from what I read, the 006 never will; I say big deal. What it does in its current condition is head and shoulders above any other DVD or HDTV I've seen. But I'm betting that Algolith is going to make things even better, and that everything I've mentioned is going to become much cheaper, fairly quickly. But, if you can swing it, I wouldn't let anything delay the 006, because you're going to enjoy it that much.
By the way, my registration problems got solved when I realized that by implementing a new wireless router in my LAN, I introduced a new default gateway IP. That part has been solved.
Maybe we're looking at Son Of Entre thread. Anyways, it's nice to hear from y;ou a
