Europe’s best full-HD plasma TV named: Pioneer PDP-LX508D

Pioneer’s newest 1080p plasma TV, the PDP-LX508D KURO, has been voted Europe’s best Full-HD plasma screen.

The award was given by the European Image and Sound Association (EISA), a jury of editors from 50 of Europe’s top consumer electronics magazines.

EISA’s citation reads:

    “Once again Pioneer has reaffirmed its mastery of plasma picture quality.

    The ‘Full-HD’ PDP-LX508D sets a new standard for that key benchmark of home cinema video performance: black level depth. To achieve this exceptional result, Pioneer has simultaneously improved the three fundamental display elements – panel, filter and electronics – while at the same time paying close attention to picture processing, including motion compensation subsystems.

    Plus, as befits such a home cinema workhorse, the PDP-LX508D is also capable of reproducing high definition movies in their original format of 24 frames per second, exactly as they would be seen in a movie theatre.”

Pioneer 1080p plasma named Product of the Year at CES

EngadgetHD: Pioneer’s Elite Pro-FHD1 (known to us in Europe as the PDP-5000EX) has been crowned the “Product of the Year” according to Sound and Vision Magazine and Ultimate AV.

The firm’s 50-inch, 1080p plasma was deemed a “technological milestone, complete with images that burst off the display for a near 3D effect,” which are pretty strong words considering the smorgasbord of fantastic plasmas alone that came out last year.

The PDP-5000EX was also named as the European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA)’s Best HD-Component System in August last year.

Jamo speakers best of the year

The Jamo open-backed R 909 loudspeaker has been named European High-End Loudspeaker Of The Year 2006-2007 by EISA. Says the company:
With the R 909, Jamo’s development engineers have demonstrated what they are capable of delivering, when cost is no object, and only the best components and materials are good enough. The R 909 is among very few speakers that work without a box enclosure, which normally makes it difficult to reproduce low frequencies. So, a pair of high-efficiency 15-inch bass drivers and an ingenious crossover is Jamo’s response to this challenge (…)”

The Jamo R 909 is to be launched in Q4 2005, and would sell for a whopping 11.100 euro. More info to be found on the R909 productpage.
