    Does anyone knows if the HT300 E is the replacing of the 300 XTRA-H?
    When is going to be on sale in Europe?

    But Does the price of the Ht300e ($11,995) is the same price of the HT300XTRA-H? On projectorcentral there is the MSRP of the 300XTRA and olso of the 300 LINK and are the same prices of the two new models (300e and the 300elink)

    Does anyone knows when they are starting selling these 2 models in Europe?
    At the moment I sold my HT200 and I don`t have any projectors :rolleyes:

    From the 16-20th of september there is the top audio & Video show in Milan maybe sim2 is going to launch the projectors there?

    Doubt there throws will ever change to be honest.

    The s4 is due out soon, but it looks as though the price is up again as well. Think they have also ditched faroudja for someone else(not siliconimage)


    Jeff do you have any info on a release for the 300E

    I spoke to Sim2 today as I have a HT300Extra on order. They said they are taking orders now for the new HT300E (£8000) & HT300E LINK (£11000) and they should start shipping in about 10 days time.
