Anyway forgive the awful camera phone shot (The "Wife Unit"(tm) carries the digital camera on her). Its just for context, I will post good photos when I have the digital camera in hand.



Pioneer PDP-5010FD
TiVo Series 3
JBL Monitor Speakers (Connected to TV); Using the Pioneer speaker bar wasn't a good fit
Toshiba HD-A30
Nintendo Wii
Sony BDP-S300
Onkyo HT-R540
Microsoft X-Box 360
Monster HDP-2400

TCCWEB -- Can you clarify what type of speakers you are using in place of the factory speaker???

I ask because I have just bought the PRO-1150HD I cannot use the side speakers that came with it due to space constraints, but I am actually looking for what my alternatives might be.

One alternative I have considered is the "bottom speaker" like came with your 5010-HD (since I have room top to bottom, but not side to side). I would like to understand what my "directly connected to the tv" options might be (otherwise I'll have to go through a receiver all the time).

Thanks!!!!!!!!

Great pics BTW -- you have a VERY nice set-up.

look at the first post in this thread, and first picture, you will see the Klipsch Tower speakers, SVS Sub to the left in the corner "pictures sitting on top of it". I see you might not have the space for those type of speakers, you can always get bookshelf speakers and place them in the cabinet, or use the existing speakers that came with the PDP and place them bellow.

Interesting comment re the speakers as most members seem to criticize the factory dumbo ears.
I'm looking back through the photos though and I don't see them. Am I missing something or did you just take the pics with them detached?
post #67 of 7297
shadow, you can see the speakers in the pics from post 1, and the upper left one in post 31 but they are harder to see in in the other pics from post 31 and 58.

Cybertec,

Congrats, very nice setup and the Pro110FD is looking great, excellent pics, you could give a class here on avs. Glad John at Axxis Audio took care of you and your enjoying the new Kuro Elite.

Now more pics please of everybody's Pioneer.

speakers are there, you can see them on the fisrt post on this thread, later pictures do not show them as I zoomed in to get a closer take on the screen and what was playing on it, plus the black backround that I painted makes them blend into the backround.

Ah 70"? Where is that info coming from? I've seen it mentioned here on AVS somehwere else that Pioneer may introcdue a 70" display next year but I assumed at best we would only get preliminary info possibly at CES and not actually see a new panel until like mid next year at the earliest as Pioneer seems to release their new displays starting around June and continue through the fall. I absolutely love my 150FD but like you, man wouldn't a 70" be sweeeet! Also seeing as how much power the 150FD consumes getting a 70" you would almost need the new reduced power consumption supposedly being introduced in next years models I'm very curious as to the price of a 70" panel seeing as once you get beyond 50" the price/inch ratio seems to get a bit out of wack. The LG 70" (or is it 71") is what, around $15,000 so I'm guessing that is where Pioneer may price a 70" considering the most expensive 60" they have is $7500 US. Seems like a logical price all things considered. Of course it would be great to see it come in for less perhaps $12000ish at the high end

Beautiful pics cybertec!! If anyone is a gamer could you please post some pics of some 360 or ps3 on a kuro. I almost pulled the trigger on the 110fd from axxis yesterday. But I just cant get over the thought of possibly getting a loud panel or one with dead pixels. Right now I have a isf calibrated panny 8uk with no noise and no dead pixels and if I spent the money and ended up with a bad panel that I couldnt return I would just be sooo P$##ed at myself. I'm still trying to find a local elite dealer with no luck. One more place to call in Omaha. Wish me luck. LATER

Cyber, actually what I meant was if you saw any 'moire' as the result of your digicam's settings. I know the Pioneer has no moire, but I've often gotten moire in my cam's pictures when trying to shoot from the screen.

BTW, one of those froggie pictures might get censored!

thank you D-Nice, I use your STB Pure settings for my PS3 and STB, but I noticed if you reduce brightness to -3 or -5 you get a bit better blacks, your settings have the brightness settings at zero, pictures where taken with the zero brightness settings.

I was 7-8 feet from the screen, and I used an SLR not one of those pocket digital cams, what camera you got, I might be able to help you out in the PDP picture taking department.

Yes, the brightness setting is going to fluctuate per input device and time of day.

Quite thank you, I tried my best to show the FANTASTIC imagery produced on this fine PDP
post #84 of 7297
OMG....This was not the "cure" I was looking for! Unbelieveable...I thought my set was pretty darn good (1140), and these pictures just smoked it!

So now I am really stuck....do I wait for the 70"...or just bite the bullet and get the 150??? As much as I hate going smaller (my only regret with the 1140 - that I didnt do the 1540) with the 60" if a 70" is iminent?

I have the go ahead from the SO...its just that I will get killed next year if I want to turn around and get yet ANOTHER set

Someone tell me that I should wait for the brighter, more energy efficient , BIGGER, KURO to come.....that I am crazy for not waiting.....'cause my will power is fast receding

Fantastic PICS, simply stunning!

I am really sorry for tempting you like this, I did not mean to do it, maybe I should just stop with these pics, any one in favor say yay, and anyone not in favor say NO. By the way it's the PDP that produced these stuning images, camera just snaped them.
post #86 of 7297
I say nay... Keep them coming. What other BD's or HD DVD's do you have? Also, please anyone else post pics as well, don't be intimidated by cybertec's amazing pics. Every setup is different and we want to see them. Thanks cybertec and anyone else who posted.

As for me, I am about a month away from getting a 150FD and I will try and post pics as well.

Get the Pro150FD now....let's see why.
#1 you have approval, so do it!
#2 a 70" is still a rumor
#3 you don't know the price of the 70" (IF it does come true) it could easily be double the msrp of the current Pro150FD.
#4 see #1, you have approval and will not get killed.
#5 as good as the pics look, I bet Cybertec will tell you it looks even better in person. consider that they are taken and then downloaded into the computer, uploaded to a host, posted on the avs forums and then your viewing them on what display?? and they still look Great!
#6 You can get a great deal on it now from an authorized Pioneer Elite dealer who is also an Avs forum sponsor.
#7 Why are you waiting??????? You could be staring at those pics in person on your own Pro150FD very soon instead of waiting a year or more!
#8, oh yeah see #1.
post #88 of 7297
I have no idea how to take pictures but this is my best guess.

5080 using PS3, superbit 5th element, and settings per the man (D-Nice). I need to try a blue ray disk maybe next week. Still working on break in and setting up room. May be a little too bright for my room but I am not there yet to tweak, I will do that later when I have time.









post #89 of 7297
cybertec.....i just wanted to write this note and tell you " YOU ARE A BIG JERKWAD!!!"


because of you, now I'm gonna have to get a 60" KURO..........thanks a lot!

my poor 1130 just put its tail between its legs:
