JL has agreed to do the Pioneer PDP-434HDE with tabletop stand and speakers plus 5 year warranty for £3399.99. This is a pricematch with Leading Edge Concepts. The original JL price is £4295. So they are taking nearly a grand off!!! I'm reading that there are problems with the HDMI on this set but it's beyond my understanding. To quote MAW in a previous reply to me: "HDMI so far has stuck so rigidly to minimum specification that, notably in the case of Pioneer, you cannot send native res digital signals to the screen." What does this mean? Is the Pioneer a good deal. So many questions. And regarding Panasonics. Which one? There are PD this, PA that, PE as well. What about their HD sets. It seems the Pioneer has everything in (scarts, component, HDMI etc) without having to add boards. Bloody hell, I'm confused.
