    As manufacturers are introducing their new range of Plasma's in the next few months and with improvement in their picture processing, do you think with this improvement there is really no need for a scaler??

    Dil, you got it in place now? If so what do you think of the panel? Before and after scaler?

    If you ever need to doubt the benefit of a scaler, or anything that people talk about on this forum, just go into any Currys, Comet, or whatever. Go straight to their most expensive plasma, and see what it looks like straight out of the box, connected by composite to Freeview.

    Hiya Rah

    Nopes...lol. Liam is coming over Tuesday to check out my lounge and all will be set up in the next couple of weeks. I'm an unreconstructed optimist! No in point of fact..I'm speaking from having seen a mates un-ISFed DVDO HD+ and Pio 503MXE. the difference wiv da scaler is staggering!!! Lots of comments here about the unparalled benefits of scalers - even sourcing da new Fuji AVM2 processor ( which is red hot in any case). So altho i probs wont get night and day like wiv a lesser panel ... I pretty much know I am getting as perfect a PQ wiv da scaler as possible for £8k.

    I will report back on the differences if others have not by end of month - promise..

    Jeez I am soo fookin excited!

    Regards

    Dil
