Has anyone purchased this TV or even seen anything about it? I just saw this TV at Costco ($1499) and as far as I can tell the TV must have been recently released. There's nothing about this specific model number on the Internet, except for LG's site. It's not even on the Costco website.

My guess is this is just the Costco model number of the LG 55LA6900. But I'm wondering if there are any differences between the 6900 and the 6970.

Here's LG's webiste: http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-55LA6970-led-tv

Anyway it looks like a pretty sweet TV and I'm considering giving it a try ... LG quality, the smart remote, 3D support, etc. I'm trying to figure out if it will output dolby digital 5.1 when the TV input is HDMI with DD signal. I need that for Sonos Playbar.

Any thoughts on this TV would be appreciated.

Looking at the specs the LA6900 and LA6970 are the same TVs.

The only difference I can find is the feature list, on LG's site, suggests that the LA6970 comes with the Magic Remote and the LA6900 does not. However, this isn't substantiated in the specs or anywhere else.

Also, the LA6900 offers a 47" model in addition to the 50" & 55", LA6970 does not.

I found this video and review: http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/lg-lcd-tv/lg-55la6900.html Not the most reliable review source but it does have some value.

They say the Magic Remote does come with the LA6900.
