I am changing from a Seleco 400HT CRT projector to a DLP model. Had demos on the Yamaha (rainbows), Sim2 200 (rainbows), Sim2 300 (too much noise). After reading a few reviews, I am keen on getting a demo on the Marantz VP12. I am based in SE London / Kent area - anyone seen one in action and how much are the street prices. The reason I am moving away from the Sim2 projectors is that I find it amazing that people accept the amount of wheel noise that these machines put out. For a £9000 machine and more than a few people have to build hush boxes for them is really not right. Granted the picture is amazing but if other manufacturers using the same colour wheels and chips manage to make them quiet(ish), why can't Sim2?
