Official Pioneer PDP-6070HD/5070-1HD/4270HD Owner's thread/merged thread - Page 3

post #61 of 7514
Perhaps you mean the PDP-5070HD rather than the PDP-6070HD. It is my understanding, from reading here, that the latter will carry an MSRP of $7500. This is a rather steep increase for the 60" over the 50" model; however, you do get a 40% increase in size (area) and this is, I believe, still significantly lower than previous 60" Pioneers. Big bucks none the less!

I am also considering these sets. The new Pioneers appear to accept a 72Hz input, which may be important for film (3:3 pulldown) if you are planning to use an external processor and drive the display at NR (native rate). Even if you are not using an external processor, the Pioneer display will perform the 3:3 pulldown and display 24Hz film at 72Hz (3.0x) thus eliminating, in theory, problems induced with 60Hz displays and the corresponding 3:2 pulldown. I have not seen this in action and so I do not know how well this works or how noticeable it is.

cheers

Pioneer MSRPs are worthless as everyone knows you can get them for far less than the MSRPs.

If you want to get a very good idea of how the 6070 looks vs a Panny 9th gen, visit your local BB and take a look at a 50PX60u and 5071.

Power Buy may be in the works for the 6070 with TVAuthority and a preorder can be had for way less than that MSRP you posted and 10" is huge upgrade in any panel, much bigger than it appears in numbers alone. Same technology as the 5070 but 50% gain in screen realty I believe and a welcome change after Pio using the two year+ old tech of the 6100 series - good to see that one bite the dust and Pio use their own Tech. Cleveland Plasma a forum text Sponsor at the bottom of the page is providing Pre-order Quotes but we cannot post prices or links but it's extremely attractive for an LCD loyalist as myself.

7.5K USA. Of course Pioneer MSRPs are irrelevant as you can get them for MUCH less at authorized dealers.

You may be thinking of the new 1080P Pioneer FHD1 50" plasma which is reported to be $10K MSRP.

crazy nice acribb
post #74 of 7514
where'd you guys pre order this thing??
mind pming me?
post #75 of 7514
Why are you guys going crazy over this 6070? AT 1365x768 (+/-) this can only be a marginal improvement over the prior 60" sets. The pitfall of those - in my eyes - has always been in the detail. When you blow up a 50" set by 40% in screen size, you will always see the flaws revealed. I am waiting for the 1920 x1080 60" to match the 50" FHD1. That will be the large set to see. Any idea if one is on the works? I saw someone reference a 1540. Is that 1920 x 1080?
post #76 of 7514
Probably because this year is the first time we have seen an affordable 60" plasma display. The 6070 Pio and the 58" Panny are groundbreaking displays in size, price & performance.

Of course the FHD1 & forthcoming 65" 1080p Panny will be spectacular - and they will also have price tags to match.
post #77 of 7514
I doubt I'll see anymore flaws from 9' on the 50" than I will at 16' on a 60' which will be my viewing distance.

post #78 of 7514
Anyone care to help me understand what is (will be) the difference in performance between the 6070 and the Elite 1540 60" displays. The MSRPs are $7500 and $10000 respectively as I understand. Am I really getting that much more for my money going for the Elite panel?

For reference this panel is for my basement that has practically no ambient light. I watch Directv HD 40%, DVD 50% and PS2 10%. Viewing distance is 7-11ft (11ft being the primary viewing area). 95% evening viewing and will be hooked up to a Pioneer Elite 84TSXi receiver.

Timing not important, I am willing to wait up to 4mo for the right panel.

Thanks.

Jon.

Ready for my new 6070 (still need to caulk and paint the crown though....).


post #80 of 7514
Does anyone know what the hole pattern is on the back of the 6070? What is the hole spread, or the distance between the two lines of holes? I'm trying to figure out which tilt mount to use for this and if the one I have, the Peerless ST660, will work with it.
post #81 of 7514
Probably going to be tough as no one has one yet and until Pio puts up the Manual we may not know. BTW beautiful setup almost looks like your devices are wireless you hid them so well a thing my wife has been bitching at me about. You may have to wait until Pio posts the manual with the PDF of diagram drawing they usually include. Good Luck!

Because the 61" hasn't been updated in over two years none of it's updates have included the Pio features and glass - this one is a purebred to match the 5070 and at a price at half of what it used to sell for if you bother to get a real quote. All Good News for those waiting for a 60" size FP. A bonus will be if and when they take it 1080P native - Zero pixels to be seen with a normal viewing distance.

The 6070's owners manual has been online for weeks:

Sorry, but the manual says nothing about what the distance is between the 4 holes. Or am I missing it?

36-38 inches distance.

I'm assuming this is a guestimate based off the hole patterns shown on pg. 11 in the manual?

Is BB carrying the Pioneer PDP-6070HD yet? I know they have the Pioneer PDP-5071HD already, so I'm just wondering...

I called NYC BBs and it didn't come up on their computer inventory. What about the rest of the country?

Thanks Adam. I appreciate the info.
post #90 of 7514
Regarding the 6070, I have ordered one and expect to get it by the end of July to the first week of August. I am biting my nails in anticipation.
