Hi @. Had a little surprise windfall yesterday so I'm soon to be in the market for a new pj around the £1500 price point. As a decent demo seems hard to get these days, I'd be interested specifically in the experiences of people who've upgraded from an AE100 to something sub £2k, and how much improvement they've seen. Obviously, the AE700 sounds mighty interesting, though I've never even demoed the 500/300 so don't really know how much improvement I should expect. Also interested in DLP, but I'm a rainbow-viewer so have to be careful there. Although I've got the HCPC, I'd actually quite like to ditch it & just use progressive component (or maybe HDMI/DVI at a later date), mainly due to the hassle factor of the HCPC. PJ will be used on a coffee table in the living room, packed away when not in use (so no CRT ). Any thoughts from all you ex-AE100 boys & girls much appreciated!
