Does anyone know how much Barco CineMAX costs in UK ???
Anyone owns it ?
I think the list price is around £32,000
Roland will give an exact figure. I have had the pleasure, so to speak at the EVENT and was very impressed, but is it worth £32k?
Dont think so..
Cine max is currently being renamed due to a leagal problem in Germany with chain of Cinemas. Cine 9 / Cine Max has a UK list price of £31719.25 without Limo Pro and £34069.13 with it. I would always suggest it is fitted as a backup incase your scaller goes down.
The very best scaller to use is the Snell and Wilcox interpolator.
I don't actually own one but I have set up and installed several now and happy to put you on the waiting list. I can vouch that is is as good as it gets. It takes about 3 days to set one up really well.
There will be one in the Tag Mclaren room with an Interpolator at the Bristol Show and that will only get the half day treatment.
If you have any specific questions about it fire away.
If any one discounts it, be very wary of what you are getting.
I'm with Roland on this. The Cinemax/9 has a HUGE amount of adjustments to help the trained operative get an astounding picture. These adjustments, in the wrong inexperienced hands, also allow the possibility of an amazingly crap picture!
Is it worth the money....Well, it'd be on my list of my numbers came up.
At the Event you all got just a snipet of what the thing should be capable of. If it makes it to Event 2 I'll be hoping to have the thing set up for at least 2 days before you guys see it.
About these events...
Are they for UK residents only, or could I drop over from Sweden to join you?
I would have to know the date a month or so in advance.
Bristol Hifi show: 22-24/2 in the Marriot Hotel in Bristol.

The Event, was a day out I organised for those of us who share theis interest "on-line". It was free to anyone who wanted to come as long as they got in touch with me so I could keep a track of numbers....It got a bit ...busy.
Folk flew in from all over UK and Ireland for it. A chap almost made it over from Spain....everyone is welcome.
Don't worry I'll be giving everyone a few months notice on the next one!
over 30 grand.
I've recently found out that I can get one around 25 grand in Korea/Japan, and just wondered how much it would cost in UK.
Way too expensive.
well things are always cheaper if you ship from mainland europe to the UK via Korea / Japan.
The Max is cool but if it's too much then why not consider a s/h 1209....or a Marquee 9500LC...both chassis used in other top of the range 9" projectors.....or even a Sonyg90.......
These are likely to be around £15,000-£8500
