Looking at the specs for the x950b, it says it has downward facing speakers. Can anyone confirm that the set has standard speakers on it? I am assuming they are hidden behind the bottom bezel?

What do people think XBR950B pricing will look like? Inline with the 2013 models or more aggressive to account for greater availability of 4K and increased competition?

Looks like you are right. Only the X900B has the magnetic front speakers.

I'm curious about this as well. 4K prices are bound to keep dropping until they reach 1080p levels or even lower. I think they'll go lower when competition moves up to larger screen sizes. 

 

As for X950B this year, Sony might consider it to be in a luxury segment where price competition isn't as stiff.

I hope you are high. I would love to see the 65" at 6000 MSRP, and 4500-5000 online wink.gif.

Sony tends to live in a fanatasy land until the hammer of competitive drives them to reality. The competition will thankfully dictate the street price.

Just to clarify, the most expensive Sony 65" is currently $5000 (down from $7000 originally) and you think they will move all the way up to $8000.

Is that because of model proliferation? Something else will fill that slot and the 950B is a new "higher, higher end" set?

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Anyone who thinks these 2014 Sony sets are worthwhile are brain washed. Look at the specs. They are all downgraded 2013 versions that cost much more. You don't even get XR960 until the 4K XBR series. Local dimming (not really, its edge-lit) and triluminous tech don't start until the w950b series. Come. On.

Does anyone know if the new sony's coming out will have 10 bit panel? Without 10 bit panels they will not meet rec.2020.

I think $8000 retails, lower online. I think they will go up because they are FALD, current 900A is not........

--- Just a note, the 65X900A took a nice price drop as well........so your 5K is now very high...........

As i posted before, i think JVC has set a low-price bar for consumers looking to purchase 85" UHDTVs by pricing the upcoming JVC DM85UXA at $9,999.99.
I feel that for any other manufacturer to sell similar sized UHDTVs for more than $2,000.00 above that amount would be a losing proposition, even if it is a FALD model with enhanced color decoding.
FALD : Full-Array Local-Dimming.
What do you guys think ?

I hadn't even heard of these. No real press on them either from a quick Google search. Why is that?

The 950B is absolutely not edge lit.

I took the $5000 price from sony.com http://store.sony.com/65-xbr-4k-tvs/cat-27-catid-Collections-65-Inch-XBR-TVs

It just seems far-fetched they are increasing pricing from $5000 to $8000. That seems insane, even for Sony. That you and Speakerphile believe it makes me wonder if you aren't both right, it just seems far-fetched.

I will be extremely disappointed if the 65 prices out at $8k. I was hoping that the 84" might come down bigtime this year now that large panels are becoming more common.

Would be nice if the 79" could be had for a reasonable price if Sony intends to keep the 84" in the stratosphere.

Right, but that's basically a regurgitation of a press release. Google Sony, Vizio or LG 4K models and you'll find endless pages of references with commentary, etc.

So, as far as i can gather :
Sony XBR-85X950B > FALD, "LED Triluminous Backlight", extended-range color gamut, no clarification yet of 10-bit panel.
JVC DM85UXA > "Direct LED lighting", 10-bit panel, no extended-range color gamut. MSRP $10,000.00.
Toshiba 84L9450U > FALD, no extended-range color gamut, no mention of 10-bit panel
RCA SLD84A65RXQ > "Combination Direct and Edge-Lit LED", no mention of extended-range color gamut nor 10-bit panel.
Seiki SE85UY06 > No mention of FALD, HDMI 1.4 w/ future download HDMI 2.0, no extended-range color gamut nor 10-bit panel. MSRP $8,000.00.
All models have HDMI 2.0 inputs and some have HEVC decoding.
Now, if we could convince Vizio to do the obvious thing and release models sized between 65" to 120" (? Proof of concept ?), specifically 75" and 85" diagonal, from their just announced "Reference Series" UHDTV, which appears to be the "killer" of all UHDTVs circa 2014 !

There seems to be a tendency for TV lineups to jump from 65" to 84" for models within the same family - adding a ~75" option would be nice.

UFO, being that I am a loyal Sony supporter I cant believe I am going to say this.......but you are right on with your post. Everything you said was right on and again this is coming from a guy who has been a loyal Sony supporter for years! 2014 sets that are a down grade right on par with the 2013 sets makes no sense at all to me. On top of that I don't care at all for the new designs of the Sony TV's which seem to me have gotton fatter being that they seem to be trying to add better sound to their TV's. There's nothing wrong with that but lets be honest anyone who owns an HDTV or 4K tv should go with a surround sound system because the built in speakers on TV's are sub par at best. If you don't want to go full surround sound then get a good sound bar at least. But again your post was very well said. biggrin.gif

We will see, all speculation. The current set is not FALD, big difference.......

Ok I've sat out the researching and keeping up with highend TVs for a long while now.

With 4k UHDTVs being out for 1-2 years now I've starting brushing up to atleast know what's going on.

Question is does anyone know of someone that had done a comparison back to the Sony 52XBR4 LCD TV? Even if in relation to the 2013 UHDTVs or so.

Only complaint I had with my XBR4 is I had to turn on all the power savings to highest to keep the corner flashlight form being noticeable but hay that was 6-7yrs ago and I'm been happy watching it since then. Ohh yah I really hate the stupid feature that drop the black to blacker when the screen is mostly black. All it does is make you "notice" the screen difference in black and take you out of the immersive movie.

Please tell me that got that black to blacker drop disabled or a menu option to turn off.

EDIT: Forgot to mention I really do not have any interest in 3D stuff.

I have the XBR5 and I remember from way back the suggestion to avoid power saving feature from kicking in, was to duplicate your preferred settings but use the "game" mode. I got my XBR5 in 2007 and noticed the dip especially during "single name credits" when there wasn't much on the screen. But again, I never switched it to see if that phenom disappeared.

I have the 65/900 and that is not an issue unless there is nothing on the screen.

edited to add link to question I asked back then:

For those that are eyeing the 79" X900B, I spoke to a Sony customer service manager and was told that the set is passive. Under "What's In The Box" active glasses are listed.

Patience, Watson - one step at a time. The direction Vizio is going is evolutionary and disruptive enough, that the last thing we would want is for this initiative to get tripped up because they took on more than they could deliver...

If Vizio can deliver a real 65" Reference Series product to the market this year, I predict a full Reference Series product line-up to be announced at CES 2015.

It has to do with panel sourcing. 75-inch panels are a bit of a bastard child, not optimally made from any fabs. The 84s come from repurposed lines that used to make 42s....

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

Full array has always cost a lot more from SONY. Remember the HX929 series vs. NX720 or HX820? It was usually like 50-100% more for the full-array vs. the edge-lit LED set (depending on size).
