I bought 3 Prontos from Mike at letsautomate and only the first one was a good one. I bought that one last year but the other two I bought from him this year for friends were very poor. I have noticed this and spoke with Mike and also e-mailed him but he can't do anything about it. He said that all the Prontos from about May onwards have the poor display and he has no other once left. They are very bright on the backlight but the contrast is very poor. If my Pronto ever packs up I think I will go for a Marantz. I looked at the Marantz at the LIVE2000 in London and the display was better then the current Pronto.
By the way has anyone noticed that the contrast level and ajustment gets worse with age of the Pronto? I never had to ajust as much as I am doing now.
