Marantz got out of the projector business. They still supports all of there projectors but will not come out with new models. It's a shame because they sure made great projectors. All of the projectors were made out of Aluminum and not plastic like most you see today so there cost were very high.

From what I understand is that they have no more VP-11s2 in stock but have some VP-15s1 left, that is the reason why the VP-15s1 is still on there website.

Marantz makes great projectors or made them. I have a VP8600 and the sharpness and image is great. I had a panny4000 and my Marantz is so much better when I'm watching sports or any HD cable. Plus, I got it for really cheap.

The is most unfortunate as my Marantz VP-11S2 was one fantastic projector that I got a great deal of enjoyment from...it is most unfortunate to see another "top quality projector manuafacturer" exit the business as this is how I felt when Yamaha exited...

That is so sad
. I was hoping that they would make a 3D DLP projector since they're releasing a 3D Bluray player next month. I still love my VP-11S2 and its razor sharp picture. Would I still be able to buy replacement lamps?

Wow, terrible. They're a victim of their own success. The 11s2 is the first projector I've never wanted to upgrade or replace....and I've burned through my fair share!

It's the last PJ I'll ever own as it looks fantastic on a HP screen and I'm not interested in 3D. I'm glad we can still get bulbs, I seem to go through them faster since I got this projector
. I'll be calling AVS next month then a calibrating I will go!!.

I waited for years to build my own, truely dedicated, home theater and when I did in 2003 I selected MArantz equipment. I have a VP12 and even though it is without an HDMI connection, I enjoy it immensely. I really cant bring myself to take to old whopper down and pop for a new one. After paying 12K for it, I want to get all the use that I can out of it.
