    Has this projector surfaced in the UK and has anyone had a look at it?

    Does the bulb flicker still? This was/is a problem that Marantz have acknowledged.

    Thanks

    I currently have this pj which I have had since Saturday.

    I will post detailed comments later.

    So far I am pretty pleased with it :)

    So far the flicker problem has been a non-issue (I am using s-video)
    but did (I think) notice a slight flicker when using a pc connected to it.

    Hi Mike

    Did you get it for a reasonable price?

    Paul - it was uk sourced (not grey) so wasn't cheap
    I bought it via the Sound & Vision show back in Feb so got a good discount (minimum 10% off).
    I did debate whether to buy from Japan (see AVSFORUM for further info)
    but what with the risk of problems with this relatively new technology, took the desicion to buy a uk one.

    O i c (me being a bit slow here)

    The answer is no during normal viewing (so far that is).

    The only time I have noticed a rainbow-like effect was when projecting the focus matrix
    screen (part of the pj - white h/v lines on black background).
