Say hello to my massive friend. The newly announced 60 inch Pioneer Elite Kuro Plasma and it’s smaller siblings, rolling into our hearts and living rooms this June. The second-generation Kuro plasmas will have 5x deeper black levels than the previous dark-as-hell Kuro plasma units. The 50 and 60 inch standard Kuro PDP-5020FD and PDP-6020FD will be $4,000 and $5,500 respectively and their Pioneer Elite equivalents (PRO-111FD and PRO-151FD) as shown here will weigh in at a hefty $5,000 and $6,500. Seriously though… look at it. It’s blackness beckons you.
Not only do the new Kuro plasmas have eye gouging blacks, but measure a supermodel 2.5 inches in thickness. Additional enhancements include a new remote control, high definition user interface, home media gallery, and sex-on-a-wall case design. [via Gizmodo]
What this means to you: Suddenly, your television looks… well, a little sad.
Cost: $4,000-$6,500 @ Pioneer (Available June)
