I was at a local AV dealer here in San Antonio today looking at all the goodies. What I REALLY wanted to see were the new Mitsubishi DLP sets. The Mits rep was there, & I picked his brain for about an hour. Very informative. He said they were already on the road to the dealers! This is excellent news! These sets are 52 & 62", HD2+, 7 segment, HDMI, 3 Firewire, VGA, integrated ATSC & Qam HD tuners, CableCard, media card reader. and BOTTOM MOUNTED SPEAKERS. He said the 525 series 52" will be for sale next week, with the 525 series 62" 3 weeks after. The 52" Medallion 725 series 2-3 weeks later, followed by the 62" (the one I'm waiting for). These new DLPs were available for a sneak peek recently in SoCal at a Dealer meeting. He also said that these sets KILL all other DLP's released so far. He was very quick to point out the shortcomings of their Alpha set, as well as their older DLPs. He mantioned a segment of grey being added, vastly improving black level. I can't wait (but WILL)! If anyone gets any news on these sets, post it here.
