507 or 508


Ex Member
i curently have a 427xd and the dead pixels are driving me mad so its going back to costco.

my question is i was think about jumping to the 507 but with the 508 around the corner should i wait

i am not bothered about 1080p, not to fussed about a media box as i have a hdmi amp.

so my question is what does the 508 have that is better than the 507:smashin:

507 will need the optional speakers, and if unlike the 427, you'll need to use the 360 SCART adapter on the audio leads, and plug into a SCART for sound, along with the Components of course.
So, maybe the media box will be a bit more useful than initially thought.
The blacks will also be quite a bit better, if the hype is right.
There's plenty to read and see on Pioneer's US site.

Surely it's not realistic to wait for the 508 when thinking about buying the 507 as that is the boat i'm in, they must be quite a difference in price to begin with? and i'm thinking for around £1700 the 507 is a bargain!
