Pioneer Shines a Light

You can do away with plans to cover that far wall in your living room with the umpteen inch HD flat screen TV from the Massive Buy store down the street.

Finally, you can just make the wall your TV thanks to the almost too-good-to-be-true Kuro projector. Pioneer recently announced in Munich the arrival of the KRF-9000FD - complete with LCoS technology; twin HDMI inputs; component, composite, and S-Video sockets; full 1,920 x 1,080 native resolution; and 600 lumens with a 30,000:1 contrast ratio.

Those consumers able to withstand the projector's $12,000-plus price tag will also enjoy a RS-232c control port and a noise level of just 24-decibels in normal operation.

All you need now is a can of nice, flat white paint to slather on that far wall.-John Scott Lewinski
