Multiple 50mxe20 Purchase End Of Fy


Recommended Posts

happy to help!

Visited my local jb store yesterday and saw a 5o7xda for $4150 delivered and installed whithout even making him an offer, asked the salesman about the sudden drop in price and he said pioneer has just reduced them to clear out stocks ready for the new 508, so i presume they will clear all there 50" stocks domestic and commercial. Do you think with such a large order it may be possible to apply the blow torch and get further reductions for our 50mxe.

The commercial models arn't going to be replaced until early next year, so don't expect another price drop soon.

Would it not be better to hold off for awhile longer, to see what other price reductions there maybe towards the end of the year?

Don't get me wrong though, this is a fabulous offer, and I do appreciate all the effort being put into the group buy.

I think that's a decision only you can make. Waiting would be a bit of a punt and if you are now happy with the price I would go for it.

As for myself, I've waited long enough and I think this is a good opportunity.

Can anyone tell me where to see a 50MXE20 in the flesh in Sydney??

Thats the only thing standing in the way of me signing up to the group deal.

Just have to get the wife to approve.

Any advice to help me - or it's 507 for me..........

I think someone said Len Wallis has it on show!

That's up to you mate, but I think the price you will get for 1 panel with a possible price reduction will still not match the price we have now!!! and by then, all of us buying these now will have enjoyed them for 6 months before you get yours calibrated!!!

It IS the end of the (financial) year - 10 days to go.

Also could try Electronic Enterprises at Gordon. They sell them and may have one on display

They sell them - but dont display them.

He actually recommended the MXE over the 507 - but said it depends on how you hooked everything up as connections were very limited the MXE. He suggested all to the receiver and then single cable from receiver to panel.

Just called - only have the 507 on display - anyone else with ideas on where to see one??

I fear time is running out.........

I have tried and got nowhere - plenty of people who want to sell them - but none who display them.

Does anyone who already owns one have some photos you can post - they might be enough!!

mate, I take it you have downloaded the brochure off the pio website, so you have a pretty good idea as to how it looks aesthetically?

I dunno if photos of the picture will do it justice, but hey, see what comes of it!

You could watch Sunrise on Channel 7...I'm pretty sure that the plasma they use to 'talk' to their remote guests is a 50MXE20...if not, it's pretty close.

They often leave you with a view of it before they go to an add break (coz it looks nice :rolleyes: )

all confirmed buyers have been PM'd bank details.

I will confirm before I put the order through, what I have you all down for, so as we are all clear what is being ordered!

The fun is about to begin!!! :D :D :D

Just another "heads up" y'all!

I am assuming we are all buying our panels with the 5004 card (the one with rca connectors)?

This is how I am ordering these. So no need to confirm this with me if that's what you want.. Only if you want the 5003 card with the BNC connectors should you speak up and PM me.

As will the rest of us, I'm sure!! But had the query, so I had to clarify and confirm.

Gee these group buys are a headache!!! :wacko:

Anyone else feel like Joecool deserves a little bit out of this???

I'm happy to bump my invoice by by a few bucks and knock the same off his...much better discount than I could have managed and it must have been a real pain to organise.

Jc...please adjust mine as per my PM.

Cheers

Ian

Hi Joecool

Lyle told me that you have some great prices for the MXE. Just wondering if your supplier can give a good price on a 427XDA - sorry going a bit off-topic.

Before everyone jumps at me for getting the 427, I should explain that I already run an MXE (as well as a slightly older Fujitsu) in my parents' place. While I am very happy with the quality, it's a bit of a struggle for the "less technically minded" to use the integrated system with the separate coxes, components, etc. We integrated all our systems and use a Marantz remote. Considering this, I should probably commit to a compromise and go with the convenience so that everyone else is happy.

I'm not sure on where you are, but I am in Melbourne Inner East. I got $3100 from Trevor Lees, but seeing that people can get the 507 for $3800, I am hoping for less. In desperate need of the screen, must be there by today or Monday at latest.

Thx

Sorry mate, but I can't help you on this one. The pricing I have is only for MXEs. I suggest you chat to Trevor!

Hope you don't mind some very basic questions from someone who is technically challenged, despite how many times they may have read up on the subject. I must say that I am very interested in this group buy but just want to clarify things first.

I watch very little FTV, some but not much. Most of my viewing is mostly Foxtel or downloaded movies off the internet. Would it be fair in thinking that for most of my current viewing at the moment, that I will be dissappointed with how it displays considering the Foxtel quality and without doubt the quality of my downloaded movies? Not of course should this influence my decision as my viewing habits could change in the future.

Given that I don't want to run this through my AVR permanently, I also have to buy a set of speakers. PDP-S53-LR speakers were mentioned earlier in this post, but going to the Pioneer site I cannot find them, and I seem not to be able to find which speakers are actually suited to this model or cost. I have googled PDP-S53-LR, and while a search does come up for them, none are from a Pioneer site.

PDA-5004 card with RCA connectors I assume is what I will need to be able to plug in my Foxtel IQ, DVD player, an AVR amp for when I do want to run it through my big speakers, and a STB. I also have a Panasonic DVD recorder (DMR-HS2) with HDD, but it's such a pig of machine I don't know whether it's worth connecting. Given the state of play with the TopfieldTF7000HDpvr which is what I would really prefer, I probably am just better off buying the Digitalview HD STB, although I'm sure the Toppy will improve with updates. Not sure of how much difference in price between the two boxes. The other thing which I'm also investing in is either the X360 or PS3, so I will have to be able to plug that in also.

Any ideas of where I can see one in Adelaide? I phoned the so called agents who are listed on Pioneers web site, but they were very half hearted and couldn't really tell me if they had any or where else I could see one.

Well that's enough silly questions for one night, I look forward to any thoughts or problems I may not have come up with yet. My viewing distance is between 2.8m to 3.5m.

Thanks

John
