    Right I know the Piano still hasn't been released here yet, but Brian at Rapesco has said it will be mid June. However in his email he also alluded to the fact that there maybe be something very interesting released at the forthcoming InFocomm conference.

    Well I was impatient and wrote to Plus USA about importing one to little Old Blighty and I received the following reply.

    "Dear Mr ********

    Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding the Plus Piano. Plus Vision
    Corporation of America does not sell internationally. You might try going
    on the global website, www.piano.plus-vision.com. There will be a new model
    coming out at the end of July. Specs are not yet available.

    I know there has been some rumour of this but people had said it wouldn't be until at least the end of the year but it looks as if there is definately a New Model hopefully addressing the low ANSI rating and bulb life this July, which isn't too far away in the grand scheme of things (I tend not to watch too many films in the summer anyway). Here is one very happy Bunny

    PS I have deleted names in case I have been told something I shouldn't have been!!

    PPotter, thanks for the Altavista translation tip - I have never used that before its good!

    Anyway slight disappointment about the light output but pleased that it will now have a zoom lens and accept progressive scan input. With summer now upon us with its long daylight hours inviting me to be outside I don't mind waiting till an Autumnal release here in the UK.

    Sykes

    PS can anyone make out if they have changed the bulb life??

    Where did you order yours from and how much was it?

    If you imported it how much is duty etc?

    Cheers

    I am sorry Sykes, it's not UK. It's Hungary.
    Anyway, I have heard about the difficulties of distribution of PLUS products in UK.
    The price here is near the expected UK list price (2100), ceiling mounting kit included.
    The PLUS dealer is very helpful, so I could test the Piano at home.

    Cheers

    Rather stupid of me to assume you lived in the UK, nevermind. Let us know how you find the Piano when you get it (are you PAL in Hungary?), I would be very interested.

    You will also be glad to hear that that site suggests there maybe some sort of upgrade service to original Piano owners to take advantage of prog input etc. (....does this mean there is a projector company who really do care about their customers????)
