I've seen a few posts in the past months on various ( other ) forums with prices for the Sharp XV-9000E in mainland Europe for between £5k and £6k. Why are these things so much more expensive in the U.K !!! For example www.big-screen.de sell the sharp complete with an electric screen and cabling for approx £6500. The new Sharp XV-90E looks like a nice pj but I wonder how much dearer it will be in the U.K than everywhere else ???
