    Hi I cant speak for the C1 but my money is on the Davis, I've had a DLS8 for about six months and I find it excellent for all sources. I'm curious though having had a peep at your web site are you changing from CRT because good though DLP is the black level of a CRT is still better, having said that the difference isnt enough over DLP to bother me at all. In the end a demo is the only sure way to know which projector is for you.
    Cheers MikeD

    Hi Mike,
    I'm changing my projector because i need a portable one, i know CRT's are still the best for blacks and probably quality, but I suppose you have to compromise for portability. Have you seen a CRT running in comparison to your DLS8 ????

    Just a word of caution, but when I visited my local showroom recently I was informed that DAVIS have gone bust!
    Not sure if someone else will take over?

    :(

    Hello,

    I found this on the www.davis.no site, under press room, news releases, oslo stock exchange.pdf


    KOG - REGARDING DAVIS
    Kongsberg Gruppen has decided to terminate its efforts to sell DAVIS, meaning further investments in new products and markets will be abandoned. The company will gradually be downsized and the focus will be narrowed to the sale of existing products, and service and maintenance on products already delivered.
    Predata, DAVIS's sales company in Norway, which also sells brands other than DAVIS, will stay in operation. This also applies to DAVIS' distribution companies in Sweden and Denmark, both of which are profitable companies.
    Kongsberg Gruppen will make Q2 provisions of MNOK 100-125 to cover winding up costs. This will reduce liquid assets by MNOK 30-50.
