I see onecall has the PRO730HDI listed as coming soon on the website.


The old models are out, but what are the changes with the new models?


Anyone know?

Well I just read the specs at onecall for it. They list some of what's new for the set there.

http://ww2.onecall.com/PID_21076.htm


But for short, here is some of what they say there.


"New Achromatic Lens assembly (sharper focus on outer edges)

2 sets of DVI digital interface with HDCP (480P/1080I)

Pure Cinema III Scaler (less artifacting on up-converted info)

New tinted scratch resistant AR-coated protective screen


Continuing a commitment to the high-definition (HD) television format, Pioneer introduces the new PRO-730HD rear projection monitor with significant picture quality advancements.


Pioneer's new television offers multiple Digital Video Interface (DVI) with High Definition Copy Protection (HDCP) connections. This feature allows a digital connection between set-top boxes and the monitor, creating a more vibrant image. DVI HDCP technology allows content providers the ability to utilize the full bandwidth of high definition signals.


Exclusive technologies in this new line of projection televisions include: New PureCinemaIII (TM) film detection, a five element lens system with an achromatic lens on the blue gun, and Reference Theater Mode Pro. All models are built with a 16:9 aspect ration to maintain compatibility with today's video sources. They also feature five different NTSC screen mode settings"





But with that all said, it still looks the same as the current 730 that's being sold now.

I've read, don't remember which forum, that the new Elites will feature a new ISF calibration feature. We Elite lovers had better stock up now, most think that 04 will be the last of the Elite CRTRPT.

I thought that too, that's why I asked. I wasn't sure if onecall even had the specs right.


JB any idea what the ISF Calibration stuff could be? ISF Calibration without someone coming to the house!?!? =)

The new ISF calibration mode will just allow the ISF calibrator to "lock in" settings not allowing them to be changed. It will also offer a "day" and "night" setting for the calibrated mode.

As much as I love my Elite, I would not buy another one that has just some minor changes to it, just because they may be phased out after that one. Until I see what everyone else may have a year from now.

Don't get me wrong, I love my Elite. And if I was looking to buy a set right now, I would still buy another one.

But it is possible, that by this time next year, there may be something new that just blows everything else sold right now, right out of the water.

It is also possible the planet may be hit by a asteroid killing of man, but I'll bet against it. =)


I've got money I have to spend on a replacement set and I want something big that looks great. All other options are currently out of my price range. -(
