Hello, folks. I'm kind of dead-locked between those new HD2 DLPs. Although pros, and cons of each units are pretty obvious... I cannot decide which one to go for at the moment without advices from people here. I'm going to audition them around Christmas. BTW, is the Marantz S2 available in UK yet ?? According to the spec, VP-12S2 features 2600:1 CR, and Sim2 HT300+ has 1800:1 CR. From reading AVS, Marantz 'seems' to have higher CR, not only specs, but in real-world, too. Check this thread on AVS for real-world CR of Marantz. Even for Sim2 HT300+, 2300-2400:1 or at least 1800:1++ real-world CR of Marantz would be hard to beat, I think. Any opinions, comments would be highly appreciated.
