Want to drop by to say Hi to some old friends here, I drop off from this thread at page 12 when I was about to start a long trip away from Hong Kong, so it was like 3.5 months already, looks like I have a lot of reading to catch up.
Anyway, some updated to share with you all. I placed an order for my 55LA9700 on mid April, but I have to wait for 6 weeks before I get my hands on the unit, it literally sold out for more than a month. I am now using it with 3x M&K S85 satellite speakers, powered by Yamaha AV Receiver, and probably will upgrade my sub-woofer to M&K as well down the road. Another reason for the long waiting is because the clearing deals in Hong Kong are extremely attractive, so the the sales bomb up suddenly like a rocket. LG sells the LA9700 with a lot of bundled items over here, I sold some of them to recap my purchase, and at the end of the day, I paid around US$2500 for my 55LA9700 and still keep a LG BP730 3D bluray player as free gift.
The TV just passed 200 hours of usage. and I have started to tweak the setting for better result. The TV is running on Ver 03.04.04 firmware and I am more then happy with it so far. I have some minor audio syn problem when playing 720P and 1080P mkv file from my PC, I set the LA9700 audio sync. to 8ms to solve the problem.
The only thing I really want to try out is to play 3D material from my PC, I was told that SBS format was better suit for active 3D, so what is the best 3D file format for LG9700 in order to explore its 4K passive 3D strength? Top to bottom? or should I go for original ISO file? What will be the recommended player for this kind of playback? My PC has installed VLC, GOM and VSO media player, do I need to install another player for 3D playback? PowerDVD? Stereoscopic Player? TMT6.5?
