Brand new for 2009 is the Anthem LCOS Projector model LTX 500 (also on hand was the lower priced 300 model - both just re-branded JVC projectors). The projector is full HD, THX ready and includes 2 HDMI inputs, as well as RGB rca inputs, an S-Video out and an RS-232 serial port for communications. Features a 50,000 to 1 contrast ratio. The MSRP is $7499.

Just for fun - let's all just buy the JVC projectors and enjoy the quality from the OEM instead of these knockoffs okay? ;)

At least we haven't seen a Runco branded version. They probably will go to Dell instead so they maintain their proper quality reputation.

You mean you wouldn't pay extra $$$ for it to say "Anthem" on it :eek:?

All joking aside, it seems to me (unless I am mistaken, which I usually am :rolleyes:) that the LTX 500 is the JVC DLA-HD750, which actually has a higher MSRP at $8000 than the Anthem at $7500. If this is true it surprises the hell out of me :D.



I think Runco was actually planning on going for a rebrand of this with an MSRP of $14995 ;):

I'll take the JVC any day, not a fan of that red stripe either. JVC projectors are second to none for the price you pay.

I believe the JVC projectors are going to have a lower MSRP than what they've announced previously. So it could be $7500 or less by the time it comes out.

I thought that I read somewhere that Anthem was going to be creating a high-end HTiB, with a JVC projector (or maybe an Anthem projector), and one of their pre-amps. I guess it makes sense in this case to just go ahead and rebadge it. But that red stripping ... why couldn't they keep it simple like Pioneer did?

Anthem makes great products and have excellent support, I have their D2 audio processor but this is definately a new direction for them and I wish them well
