    LennyZ,

    Yeah I look forward to trying it out.

    The problem that I envisage is my current PDA5002 Video board, it only takes Video signals up to 480p. Although at 480p I should still get an idea of the all digital route. Other than that it will take computer signals.

    Ive heard people have put 1024 x 768 (which the Momitsu will ouput) in through the DVI of the 5002, but I still have a feeling there may be some issues as I am not sure what refresh rates the Momitsu outputs at and the Panel is quite fussy ......

    We shall have to wait and see.

    Though TBH I think the current Arcam Interlaced via Lumagen Vision at 768p/720p (Ive even messed with 1080p !) component is gonna take some beating. I am really impressed with the PQ and its ease of use.

    Ill happily keep you posted.


    Tony

    Nb - Also got to remember the Momitsu is $219.00, so going in with low expectations - may well be pleasently suprised . :D
