same screen, new looks, better sound from the speakers and a digital freeview turner....

disadvantage is that it's a lot harder to mount on the wall.

If you are going to buy from JL you will be looking at £3695 plus the stand. Of course you maybe able to get a price match with another shop.
They are expecting deliveries of the PE30 around June but that is dependant on them selling off any stock of PA20.
As regards to wall mounting the screen, well I don't think it can be that much of a problem (I'm sure there will be a specific wall mount & clones). If you check avsforums there appears to be a number of US owners who have them wall mounted and they look fabulous! :smashin:
