From what I hear in the rumor mill (no attestation as to accuracy), Realtas in small quantities will cost a manufacturer $150 each. So give me three in a top of the line Lumagen package (less than $2500 using a single SI chip (less than $50) and a multigate chip (once again less than ($50)), and we will have a super Terranex for under $5K (assuming a chip differential cost of $350 and a parts to cost multiplier of 5). I really like the words motion compensation, such a nice phrase, sort of like holy grail. :)
Mark, going along with what you say re a top of the line Lumagen package:
Frankly, since Realta is so great, I find it hard to believe that Lumagen won't within a year or two redesign and incorporate Realta in their products. Of course with the current new line in beta and coming out for a non-beta release soon they would be foolish to talk about this publicly or even to me or you (as that would get posted here at AVS because you medium lug you and I can't keep our mouths shut). My bet is to wait for Realta a bit longer cause I am confident that when Lumagen does it, they will tailor it for us home theater enthusiasts like we want it, as they have done with their current products. I am sorry, but I've never been impressed by Algolith with an expensive mosquito product with RCAs.
With Algolith, you've got to push and pray that maybe they'll listen on some features. With Lumagen, their attitude (from Captain Picard of Star Trek) is "Make It So". If Algolith is serious about selling products to us home theater nuts here at AVS on a long term basis, then they need to listen to Mark Haflich and "Make It So". :confused:
