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

Ok. Let's see if I can answer this for you:

Always remember this, for any panel: **** in, **** out. ie put a crappy signal through the TV, don't expect miracles!!! The processor in the TV is very good, but don't expect it will look like HD.

I will PM you price on the speakers.

As far as the STB, it will give you a stunning picture, plus Digitalview are talking about a twin tuner PVR late this year, with a rebate on current DVH-505 owners.

The 5004 card is what you need and as Nightbreed said, it's the default card that comes with the panel. you're safe!!

Ideally, with so many source to plug into the panel, an AVR is best to connect all sources to, and then a HDMI -> DVI cable to the panel.

PS3 is what I am investing in too for CD/DVD/BD/gaming. Either console is fine. Once you get that, you can chuck your DVD recorder and DVD player, and like me just have your PS3 and STB connect to the panel!! PS3 via HDMI ->DVI and DVH-505 via component!!! And far less clutter.

Don't know where you will find one, other than your living room after you have bought it!! Honestly, I don't think you will be disappointed with the panel. Oh and your viewing distance is fine!!!

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.

I'll second that!

Any questions ask Nightbreed!!

Never fear, the groundbreaking 8th generation series is not far off.

Umm...try early next year, and they'll be at least $6K. More like $6-7K, and that's for the 1366 x 768 model!!

Also late to this thread but very interested. Was about to go shopping for 2 Pioneer Plasmas for the office and one for home. Initial thoughts were to get a 507 and 427 for the office and a 507 for home. Should I be reconsidering and going for 3 x 50mxe20's? New to forums so how do I get in touch with Nightbreed to find out pricing and pros and cons of 427/507 vs 50mxe20?

Thanks.

Of course with a new Plasma, one will need a new entertainment unit to place it on! Any suggestions of good quality brand names or types and styles.

From the ones I have seen, they all seem to be very open fronted, and not hidden behind glass doors to protect stuff from dust etc

What is the ideal viewing height? I would assume whatever the average eye level sitting height is to about the middle of the screen? Sorry if this is off topic.

Joecool,

I've been reading all the discussions on this site for months now, only just stumbled upon this topic today. I was researching for a purchase in a few months from now (looking at the 507 in particular). I am very interested in the group buy if there is still time left. Would be in for the 50MXE20 (black, with stand, wallmount not needed) + the recommended STB (delivery for metro Brisbane). Please PM me the price as I'm still recovering from recent wedding/honeymoon costs.

Tim.

PS. great work putting all this together. - and while the topic is on football, up the mighty Gunners!
