Pioneer Pdp-lx509a Best Price


Recommended Posts

Yea ive been trying to get one and it hasnt been easy. I've just been to Myer, DJ, Bing Lee and Harvey Normal in Sydney and no one seems to have the PDP LX509A in stock :angry: Myer only has the 60" screen in stock.

Now im thinking if i should wait for the 10th gen instead!

The only thing 10th gen is going to be a Panasonic, because Pio are quitting the Plasma business. Why didn't you ask to put one on order or was that not an option at any of the retailers?

Some of the stores said no, so i didn't bother asking the others. But just now i thought might as well try one more store, so i just called up Bing Lee and YES, finally, they can order one in for me. They are offering me around $5700 and i asked them if they can do it for a cheaper if i come in with cash. So he told me to go in and discuss. :D

Hmm.. hows $55xx in cash?

For cash you should be able to bargain them down to under $5000, did you try Clive Anthonys at Castle Hill in the homemaker centre they are sourcing me a 60" panel hopefully if not it will be May at the earliest

I ordered my Pio LX509 3 weeks ago now. Do you guys think that i'll still be ok to receive this now that Pio have stated that they're shutting down the Plasma production in April? Would the panels being shipped to Aus already be made and would we just be waiting on them getting here now you think? I'm a bit worried that my order won't be filled now.

Hey a shop in Sydney has it for lx509a for 4,999 ( in stock). Is that a good price, do you think it will come down in price later?

Mate, you're lucky to find a place that has one in stock. I would snap it up even if you're only thinking of buying one. The are going to cease making these panels in April. Doubt they'll get any cheaper.

Just bought today a LX509A for $4250. I hope this is a good deal and even better tv.

Congratulations on that. Mind if I ask where from?! I might upgrade my LX508 with a price like that!

Hi,

Are you sure it wasn't the C509 model? The cheapest i've heard a LX509 go for is around 4600 so to see it go that cheap i'd be thinking it's probably the C model. Especially since these are going to cease being manufactured in April.

Also did you get one new in box or are they going to order one? They might have just taken your money knowing they couldn't fill the order. Which retailer did you get it from if you don't mind me asking?

most definatley is a LX509A and it is a new one in a box. I purchased it from Clive Peters Loganholme QLD. They are even sending it up to a closer store for me to go and pick it up.

Hi All,

For the guys in Melbourne, Give Harvey Norman a call at QV in the city.

LX509 NIB for $4500, and that 100% the LX model, went in there myself and the guy showed me on his POS screen, his cost was just over $5k on it. I think they just want to clear them out.

Anyway for my needs I bought the Samsung 46" series 9 LED LCD instead for $3870, from elsewhere.

This was about a week ago though, not sure if they will still have them but worth a try...

$4250 is a fantastic price, the best I could get here in Perth was $4900 & that was the retailers that still had them.(not many in Perth)

Hence that is why I am getting the C509.

Wish you'd mentioned this a week ago lol.

No luck, they're all sold out now and won't take orders.

Pretty sure you just bought a C model. Twice I just called CP (2 diff stores) and they have the C model in their system as the LX. As far as they knew they couldn't even get the LX model and never stocked it. That is in Melb anyway. So hopefully it IS a LX, but most likely not.

Good luck.

i will check tommorow. What is the difference between the c and the lx509a?

LX509 is the Gen 9 panel, 5 year warranty, 5 times darker blacks than Gen 8, Speakers located on the sides of the panel.

The C509 is a Gen 8 panel with Gen 9 engine, 3 year warranty, 20,000:1 contrast ratio, speakers located on the bottom of the panel.

Plus the LX509 has ethernet, usb and home media gallery.

i was on JB hi-fi's site for pioneer and they have the LX509 but it says "LX509TABLE".

does this mean this display can't be wall mounted?

sorry if this is a silly question....first time i'm looking for a flat panel...

No it just means it will come with a table top stand. If you want to mount it on the wall, just buy a plasma mount from someone like Selby.

$6k is a bit exy for the 509 at JB especially when compared with $9k for the 609.

I did say "someone like Selby". The difference will be minimal if any except for the price. The JB might be marked at $199 or $299 or something whereas the Selby Acoustics one will be more like $60-$80 for a basic tilt only version. You also get a discount from this forum. I think DTV01 is the code.

Ah yeah. That would be it. I've used it couple of times I think although in the end I spent enough that I got the 20% off anyway.

If you are interested in wall mounting Mark, I just saw the Wall Mounting 101 thread rise to the top today. Definitely worth a read if you are going that way.

IS the Pioneer Pdp-lx509a better or worse then the SONY BRAVIA 55IN XBR SERIES LCD KDL55XBR45 , as I need to buy the better one and they are about the same price.

Who knows which is better?

Depends on what you're looking for and where you're wanting to put it.

The Sony is a LCD and better for lighter environments. They say with the LED backlighting that the blacks are much better on these panels, but I still think in comparison to the kuro's the level and detail of dark scenes would not be as good.

The LX509 is a plasma and are usually better for darker environments or in areas with no direct sunlight. If this is your situation, then it's fair to say that the LX wins out against pretty much any panel on the market. These are widely considered to be the best panels on the market as has been stated by various review websites and TV experts.

My first post, just wanted to say, i picked an LX-509 up for $4,500.00 at Harvey Norman in the QVB Melbourne. It was a display model, but it was proved to me it had only been in display for under 4 weeks. There is not a mark on it. This was the last one in the shop they had, i was very lucky.

I am completly delighted, i wanted the 5080 so badly, but missed out when they went down to $4,000.00 at JB and was gutted. So to get the 509 a matter of months later for only $500.00 more i think is a brilliant deal!

Getting it delivered tomorrow, i can't wait! B)

$5,079 at Clive Peeters Belrose.

They matched and beat a price offered to me at Myer Brookvale yesterday. Good luck finding stock though. Pioneer are getting their next stock in May.

Just an update.

Clive Peeters rang on Tuesday and advised that Pioneer were unable to supply any further LX509's and refunded my deposit. They advised that Pioneer had told them that they couldn't say when or if they would be receiving further stock.

Highly pissed off, I hit the phones and managed to secure a LX509 from Clive Anthony Castle Hill for the same price (last one!!!!!) with delivery confirmed for tomorrow.

Sometimes the Lord works in mysterious ways :D

$4500 is a great price for the LX509.

I will purchase a KRP500M next week. Going shopping Monday. :D

Is it unreasonable to expect around $4500 for the KRP500M considering both are have the same Pioneer RRP?

I would say no way you would get a new one for that. Especialy now the new RRP is $7,199.

A demo. one possibly.
