I too am interested as to when they will be released as I will be buying in about 4months time.

I sent Pioneer an email enquiring as to the release and their response was to email their Pioneer June 2007 electronic update which made no

mention of the new TVs nor any TV for that matter. A response saying they don't or can't give me information would have been better.

Oh well one can only live in hope. They will probably be out of my price range anyway :(

If they follow along previous release dates then Oct is the usual time for new plasmas from Pioneer

Thanks.

Thats an awesom review. Im sure it will have a hefty price tag to match though.

Well I stopped off at JB Hifi (Kedron) today while I was out to look at the plasmas and the Pioneer 507 look awesome. Surprisingly the LG looked very good considering it was an LG but I do realise they are not calibrated properly when shown in store.

The main reason for my post thou is that I asked when were they expecting the 8th gen screens (508) and the chap mentioned December. :-( this is along way away considering they are on sale in UK, US and Canada already. No doubt we will be fortunate to be offered the screens at a much higher price as well.

I guess the only positive is I have more time to save money.

That is awesome news then if true as that is about when my home renovations will be complete :-)

I'm very keen on getting the 508. Have to find a suitable speaker and receiver setup now.

I need to win the lotto.

Any idea on pricing?

If these are as revolutionary as they would have us believe how long until brands like Panasonic catch up, in general how far behind in the past have they and others been do you think (in this case for plasma)?

Thanks

I can't wait for this beautiful panel to hit our shores. I am starting this topic as an appreciation thread.

Here's some pictures.

I'm excited about the Pioneer 508 being released. My tax cheque will be going towards it. Only problem is I need the next two years worth of tax cheques to afford the initial price. I hope it won't be too high.

It does look like a thing of beauty and a black stand as well. I never could understand why you'd have a black tv and a silver stand.

What was wrong with posting it in this thread which is already discussing this very subject?

I'm sure these posters are all appreciative as well.

There is an article in one of my magazines (will post link when find it) talking about the 508.

They are saying that this screen is such a massive leap forward for plasma that they weren't even going to call it a plasma screen at first!!!!

Looks like they changed their mind, but have added the Kuro name to it to highlight the leap forward in performance......

The patented technology that will make this screen so special was apparently discovered by accident in the Pioneer lab!!!! So this probably explains how the other companies have been left behind a little. They are now calling this screen the CRT/SED/LCD/LASER tv killer, so has alot to live up to.

From the oversea's reviews now starting to appear it seems this is not just marketing hype, and the 508 really is a major turning point in tv performance.

I guess time will tell.

Wll be very interesting to see how other companies respond.

I was told dealers were at marketing launch for the Pioneer 508 in Sydney last week so the release should be imminent. I'm trying to find out when and pricing through a contact I've made.
