McIntosh hits projector-land with 1080p DLP unit

To the audiophile set, McIntosh should need no introduction, since they've been raiding pocket books and delighting listeners for about 55 years now. Today it seems they're bringing both their attention to quality and hefty pricetags over to the home theater space, since they just busted out a 1080p DLP projector at CEDIA, along with a whole lotta HD processing power. While the new MDLP1 projector does its 1080p thing, it's accompanied by the VP1000 processor that includes dual scalers, 4 HDMI ports, 6 component plugs, and other lovable ports and specs. Of course, all this McIntosh action comes at a cost: the projector is in the $30k+ range, while the processor squeezes by for a cool 16 grand. We suppose they didn't get the "1080p is cheap now" memo that's being passed around CEDIA. Quite unfortunate.
