Pioneer Pdp-lx609a/krp600m Best Price

Recommended Posts

Not just a small mark up either, a $700 jack up on the 50" :o !

Anyone know if the other models are getting the same treatment? Pioneer are taking the piss now, they only just pumped the prices up in Jan. now another one.

hey guys

im a new member to this forum and im not sure why i cant make a new thread..

but anyways..

i am about to move out of my house into my own apartment and i want to setup a good screen.

atm i have the 3 year old 50in pioneer plasma and its best plasma i ever purchased i rekon.

now i want to upgrade this to slightly bigger prefered at less 60+ in.

but since im going to be playing games and hooking my sony vaio to this new screen, im worry about image burn with plasmas..

question is how is this plasma will with laptops ? any of you guys use this and still no image burn ?

second option for me is this new OLED Sony screen that is 55in and it seems really nice.

anyone got any information about the new OLED ? ghosting and hz rates while watching fast moving images ??

OLED (Organic LED) panels of 42"+ won't be available domestically for a few years and they will initially be very expensive.

What you're really talking about here is the dynamic RGB LED backlighting that is used in the current 55" XBR Sony LCD.

The LED backlighting replaces the fluorescent backlighting of traditional LCDs.

The LEDS can be dimmed/switched off to allow for better blacks.

Unlike flourescent backlighting it doesn't suffer from clouding, but can be subject to blooming effects due to the number of LEDS used being much less than the number of pixels.

Here is a cnet review of the 46" version

Another one to look at is the Samsung Series 9, which also uses dynamic LED backlighting, though not RGB LEDS.

Hi Buffboy,

Welcome. You won't be able to create a thread until you have made 5 posts.

I have a new Pioneer LX509. I have been playing a lot of Guitar hero. While I have been very careful, I have not seen any signs of image retention.

I don't know about running a laptop however.

Cheers, BtB

You should have asked about the display 609 , unless that's now gone too, it was there 2 weeks ago. H.N. Chadstone only ordered in 3 LX609s, mine was one.By the way if the display model is still there it's only been there for 4 weeks.

Ring pioneer direct , ask about current stock levels and any further shipments you may only be left with the C 509, i also suggest you ring every retailer you can think of including specialty hifi stores, you may pick up a demo model only but unless you start ringing around you'll never know.

Hi there,

Can you tell me which JB Hi Fi stores they were at in Sydney? Any other places besides Clive Peeters?

Hi there,

I called JB & there are a couple of new ones in Qld but I am in SA & they would not ship here. There are 2 display models in SA. The ticket price is $8999 & I was told that I would be looking at $8700 for a demo unit that is 4-6 months old. So any other suggestions? I am wondering if Harvey Norman, or even Myer may have some lurking around somewhere in the country. The one at Clive Peeters was the wrong model. What about any online or specialty stores?

Anybody buying the krp600m or know of their availability

check the specialist stores for the krp's as they arent sold in jb and the like. try big picture people, klapp and audio trends(have a new krp600 on their clearance page) in melbourne and similar stores around the country.

I guess with stock levels so low, you can ask whatever price you like....someone out there maybe willing to pay that much...though for theat price I'd consider a Panasonic 65VX100
