Here's a link to a nicely translated piece on the "X" Series 1080p sets out in Japan. It's from Sony's global site.

Mugen,
Where did you see the 46 inch only? I'd be very interested in a 40 inch X-series, especially if they kept the above design.

Anyone attending cebit that could dig for more info on this series? Danke!

So any ideas on the price?

There was a WSJ article a few weeks back about the Sony-Samsung plant and how Sony pushed Samsung to make better panels.

They also referred to Sony developing better backlight technology, which Samsung learned from.

Are these new Bravia X models using some exotic backlights?

price is around $5,000 for the 46 inch.

backling is new but i think it's still florescent

"Sony redesigned the panel backlight using improved light-emitting phosphors to boost the range of red and green in the spectrum. Precision-matched RGB filters in the screen make sure the increased colour range has the maximum impact on picture quality."

Hmm but phosphors have limited life.

Who's using the LEDs? DLP makers?

the only lcd flat panel tv on the market is the qualia 005, it costs way to much and this new X series is just as good if not better over all. samsung has some LED backlit projection tv's coming out.


remember this picture we were all trying to figure out


well sony is making a 46 inch xbr

Just so I get this - is the 46" XBR a "V" series model? Does that make is not as good as an "X" model, non-XBR?

Or is it a matter of 720p like the 40"XBR vs. a 1080p

Or is it 2 HDMI's to 1

Or is it accpeting 1080i vs 1080p

I'm losin' it. I want a 46" XBR that 2 HDMI, and will take 1080p, so I can stop panel hunting. Which one am I talking about???

Thanks all!

I believe Sony USA(as well as Canada) will name x-series XBR since it's Sony's flagship tv, Sony Europe doesn't use the word XBR just like Japan, so they just call them whatever series they belong to.

Thanks! This may be the one. I really like the 40" now, but I need more size. 50" really, but that means SXRD if I stick with Sony. The 46XBR will be the one if it handles sports motion. I guess I'll lurk on the 40" thread for a while...

their are now 3 new 46 incher's. a 46" version of the current xbr and a new one called the X series and a 46" s2000 series. i don't see why sony can't call it the "X series" they have new tv's called s2000 series, and since their will be 3 different 46" sony's on the market it makes a lot of sense to do so.

Just a quick question, are the LCD screens made differently for television use than computer use? Is it difficult for them to make smaller 1080p(or i) screens or is there no market for them?

Thing really looks beautiful. I was instantly attracted to it. However, if it is more expensive than the 45" aquos 90 series in 1080P that may be a tough pill to swallow. I mean at $5000K, why don't I just get a pioneer elite 50"? Heck, for $4000 I can get a 50" Panny plasma. Its almost hard to justify the premium...we'll see. Anybody have a release date?

^^ I agree. I will have second thoughts about my planned 50" plasma purchase if this 46" can deliver fast response times and wide viewing angles similar to the plasmas. I'll pay the extra for a smaller screen knowing I won't have to worry one bit about image retention problems and full 1080P

I hope it has a tuner and speakers, for a standalone TV. I like to have an "easy" setup for guests and old people, without using my surround stuff or Tivo. I was actually hoping for the V series design with the X series features, but I could give up the dust collecting grille as long as there were speakers... Are these the Eurpoean designs only?

yes the tv does have speakers, using some new surround sound technology. the design is new and some sony tv's are only for europe and japan only but this tv should still look the same if it comes here.

Excellent! Is the color of the plastic the same as the V series, the Sony black? The photos look silver-y -

This link is from the Sony Nederland and at the bottom of the page it lists the input signals.

Input signal 1080i/720p/576p/576i/

It doesn't support 1080p.

It is the X series. 1920x1080i insted of a p
