I deal mostly with front projection and high end rooms. I have a client looking for better than a 50" pioneer plasma. What sets do you all like? Any reviews to check out? Especially interested in JVC D'ahlia since I love DILA front projectors. 60" maximum.

Thanks

A Pioneer Elite is likely the safest choice for such a customer, but if you add a DVDO iScan Pro to a Mitsu 55907 or Philips 60PP9701 then they would compete nicely with the Pioneer Elite.


The really expensive non-CRT sets I've seen don't look as good as not-so-expensive CRT-based front or rear projectors.


If you deal mostly in front projection, then isn't there a front projector you could interest him in?

I have a Toshiba 56H80 expertly tuned by Jim Doolittle. It is close to perfect. I am in the process of adding a scalar so that it runs at 540 P or1080i only. The best aspects are the superb color decoder, and the ability to tune a lot. Save the money, buy a scalar, and have an ISF guy spend a lot of time at your house. You will still have $1000's left over.

Most people sleep http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif . Also there are many threads like this if you do a forum search. The folks not sleeping are too tired to answer again.


Heard good things about JVC but no hard reviews yet. In the 50" range the new RCA LCOS (can't believe I'm thinking RCA) will save you about 4 grand off your target. For fixed frame sets like the JVC look at the chip to see if it is HD ratio to get full HD resolution (or better) with the added bonus of fixed geometry and less things to mess with.


Tosh I would say is the best price/performance and very flexible for DVD in addition to HD.
