Price is always a concern, but there is a group of people that money isn't an object for whatever they want. I grew up in Atlanta and my sister lives in Johns Creek. I doubt there is a lot of people up there that would be interested in this pj at your estimated price.
On the other side, I have met people and there are plenty down here that wouldn't even blink at that price. One customer has a Wisdom system with Sony 5000 in the theater of his $40 million house. Rumor is that once he gets the permits the house will be torn down with a bigger house built. I doubt he would care if the Christie was $1 million. LOL. It is why I told Arrow he needs to expand into this market. It is also why Cineramax continues to try make it here. I am sure LA, San Fran and NY are the same.
I should add that I heard on IIRC NPR that China has something like 2 new billionares every week or month. I recall a decade ago that CRTs were huge in China. They didn't mind paying a huge premium for them even though most including Art had already moved on.
As Arrow said, this is the Bugatti of pjs. I met an owner of a Bugatti. Nice car. I will never own one, but this guy does. Same with the Christie.
