Just wanted to share my thoughts on a tour of the Pioneer plant in Springboro, Ohio, that I took today. This plant is celebrating their 15th anniversary. They make car audio electronics, all except speakers, which are made in California. My wife has been there 14 years. They knocked off at lunch for the tour. They had the Pioneer Formula One race car on display. Around the car were several of the PDP-505HD 50" Plasma Displays. I was very impressed with the picture quality on these sets, even in a fairly well lit area. Another thing that was pretty awesome were the DVD players for cars that they had on display. The picture quality was excellent on the smallish screens. The Pioneer demo semi truck was out back. It had a complete HT in the front end of the trailer, and car audio stuff in the rear. Seeing those 50" plasmas was making me drool. My 40" direct view Mits is about 5 years old, how long do you guys think I can hold out...?
