Wayhey, just got my 504 this afternoon. The best picture I have ever seen from a plasma. The picture is very natural, with rich colours, superb contrast, easy menus to navigate. The best explanation of the picture I can think of is it's very similar to philips pixel plus (I have a 32pw9525 in my bedroom) but without the forced overprocessed feeling that I get from my philips. Even the sound is impressive from the side speakers that I opted for. I was supprised at this because I have had a Fujitsu P50XHA10 on loan from my dealer for the past month, and as it didn't have the speakers with it I was having to listen to everything through my all Tag Mclaren setup. So as you can imagine I thought I was going to be majorly dissapointed with the sound. If your'e even thinking about trying the Fujitsu against the Pioneer, DON'T EVEN BOTHER!, the Pioneer is in a totally different league. Even the tuner is pretty good. Not as good as sky, but watchable all the same. Dvd's are out of this world through my Tag Mclaren Dvd32R with Psm192 with no hint of motion blurring whatsoever, with crisp natural colours with Finding Nemo r1 and The Bourne Identity r2. Only one slight dissapointment is the slight jerkiness on very slow pans on both tuner box and sky, but this is nowhere near as bad the Fujitsu. I'll get that sorted though, once I figure out how to get my sky+ box to output s-video into my Psm192. Anyone know how to get s-video from a sky box? All I can find in the settings is rgb or pal. Why does it have an s-video output if it can't do it? As for HDMI, I haven't tried it, but with the quality of dvd + prog scan from my Tag, I can't see how HDMI is going to beat it. So is it worth the money? Well no, no tellys worth six and a half grand. But would I buy it again? Bloody right I would! Well thats my little report. I'm off to watch another dvd.
