What price should I be able to haggle a salesman down to for one of these
Loewe Calida 100hz 4:3 68cm TV's? I think the RRP is around $2000, but I
believe Loewe in Australia is running 4:3 TV's out so they should be
cheaper? Anyone have any ideas on how low they should go? One of these
should make a good general purpose TV for a regional area where there is
limited digital service and analogue is likely to exist beyond 2008.

I'd say don't get a 4:3 set, unless it does that snappy widescreen squeeze
thingy.

Grundigs are as good as Loewes. Check ebay if you want a bargain.

I have a second hand Loewe Planus 81cm (WIDESCREEN) that you can have for
$2000.

That's unlikely to be true for very long at all now.

Sure, but you may well notice the warts in the
analog image with a new decent performance TV.

I know I do.

Encel in Melb sell the 68cm Loewe Arcada for $1699 (clearance price with no
haggling) which retails for $2500 and is a better model than the Calida. I
have an Arcada and it is a beautiful TV if you only want SD 4:3.
