Also, if you think someone might be willing to cut a deal on the whole package, that'd be great too. I'm not very anxious to go to the local audio retailers.

Jack:

Def Tech doesn't sell its speakerline over the Internet. You have to go into a local retailer to get those. The DVDO can be picked up by one of our vendors at a good price Ram Electronics. There are several outfits to get the Stewart screen from and I am not sure where you can pick up a Pearl right now but I would give the guys at TV Authority or Visual Apex a shout and they will be able to let you know why they will be getting them in.

I saw the AX100 at CEDIA and it looked great. Personally if I had the room to have one that would be the projector I would get. The other nice thing about this projector is that is dead quiet.

I know that Visual Apex has some deals going on with the AX100 and a screen. Tell them that you where reading about them on HTF and that you are interested in a combo and see what kind of price they will give you.

The TW1000 throws a maximum contrast ratio of 12,000:1 in a room of total darkness (read: not your home theater) off a 1200 lumen lamp while operating within 26dB worth of noise. The TW1000 should retail for around ¥350,000 or about $2,927 when these go on sale in Japan this December. No world on relese for the rest of world but they should ship closer to home under the same PowerLite branding we're already familiar with.

Incredible!! I have been in the planning stages for my new home theaterwhen I stumbled upon this thread. My system was to include the Ruby, the Def Tech Mythos speakers with Super Cube II sub in a semi-dedicated room.

Now I hear about the Pearl and wonder if I should save myself some bucks. The side by side comparison on Sony's website did not reveal major differences, yet the Ruby weighs almost twice as much and has twice the power consumption. Anybody know why?

much brighter bulb (actually a different type), more light output.

And I would imagine a more expensive bulb. Probably makes a difference if there is ambient light in the room. But the Pearl sounds like it holds its own quite nicely. Can't find a user's manual online, but I am guessing the recommended distances are about the same. Well, I'll research some more and decide soon.
