Some of you might remember the Pioneer Elite display, at the time, it was considered one of the coolest of its time.
However, their was a lot of cheap LCD and plasmas, and the market wasn’t too high for it back in 2009. During that year, Pioneer decided to pull the plug on it, and many wept.
However, Sharp is licensing the Elite brand from Pioneer, with the two companies jointly marketing the product line. The models will have the Elite branding, sans Sharp or Pioneer.
You should be seeing these Elite HDTV soon, but there is no word of availability or price.
