I recently posted about my dissapointment with a demo I had of the HT300+ under the heading "ht300+ ...can`t really be this bad,surely? I have now had a good demo of this cracker and have amended the title accordingly. I must thank Alan Roser at Owl for the considerable time he spent with me and my raft of "crap" dvds !!! - he was able to replicate my problem with "the thing" , clearly showing it to be an issue of the DVD player de interlacing ( it didn`t use the Faroudja !) not the Sim - which makes me even more angry because I specifically asked the salesperson at the first demo if he was feeding an interlaced or progressive signal , and was told it was interlaced. Crappy salesman = crappy demo. Anyway , in short on an 8ft white screen (gain of 1.2/1.3 i think) I was staggered by how great the colours were - shadow detail was exceptional...... oh , and PLENTY bright enough !!! This I am certain will be my next projector , and I think I`ll even go with a white screen - the demo was that impressive , I just want to replicate exactly what I saw in my own theatre !! (can I have that D-theater player please Alan - Oh, and better have that Bikini tape togo with it !!!. I don`t want to open the war again that flared from my original post , I guess it`s "horses for courses" - but this Horse is getting a ht300+ !!
