Just found out about this "shootout",sounds like it was just a black level test then was it?, nothing much else is mentioned

I think perhaps you haven't read the whole thread that well then  :lol:.

I think you're right I skimmed it in 5 mins and have been at work, will digest it tonight, can't believe I didn't hear about this though

Can't argue with that but I'm done swapping, for this year anyway  ;)

Keep your TV and if you have money to burn either give it to me and i'll spend it wisely or buy a projector.

I think I've had great will power over the last 4.5 years to resist changing my 500A  ;D  ;)

I have no doubt that I would have felt the same if I had owned a pio  :P, I would have had to have purchased a 3D tv tho as I love my 3D animation at home  ;).

Stop that right now young man. JL know they were norty with me, why else would they give me 200 for all the stress of continually sending me faulty sets?  Shame on them  ;)

WOW.  what a day and what a great turnout.  Awesome to see you all there.  Firstly a big thank you for everyone who came and to those who helped. 

It was scary how good the Pioneers looked, for something of its age it still stacks up against the new kids on the block. 

We hope to repeat the day again, probably next year with the new ranges.  I am planning on an audio day at some-point in September.  I will be writing a report for our head office and if other stores can put on a similar day they will have my support.

I do still have a few Panasonic mugs left as from reading the posts they seemed very popular.

thanks again, can't believe it went so well as we hadn't really planned it much time in advance.

Thanks again for hosting this. Very impressed with the work Richer Sounds put into it, so much so I've gone and bought the Onkyo TX-NR818 AV Receiver from my local RS store. Great deal on at 599.95.
