    It's a competitor to the Faroudja products. It's also has input slots for other little tricks ;)

    I haven't set a UK price yet....want to see it in the flesh.

    Looks very nice - but no SDI input :(

    So at current exchange rate that will make it about £5k eh Gordon? :)

    Well if you add Shipping, DUTY (14% for DVD players) and VAT (17.5% payable on duty andn shipping) even at current exchange rate a direct import would be over £7000 so I doubt you'll see any dealers selling them for £5000....you never know though.

    Well Kramer you'd be amazed......Folk buy all sorts of expensive stuff. Immersive have said themselves that it's not targeted at forum members.....

    Gotta say I do think I've got an uphill struggle. Still it might be astounding.

    Hopefully it has not the same problems as their now discontinued product (the problems which they promised to solve)
    Perhaps they swap Holo2 for simmitry ? Or 80% discount ?)
