I think the idea of an acoustically transparent cloth of some sort for the front of the 006's stand is a great idea. I'd go for that. PM me when you get the details. I'd want it to be black. I bet there are others here that would go for it also to help the WAF. Maybe we can get a list going for that.
JB007 - I also noted that pressing channel up or down on the Sony remote takes you to the TV input, so I think I will try using channel + as the discrete code for that input.
NOTICE TO ALL: The Sony stand has casters but is not easy to move from side to side. You CANNOT role this stand straight ahead or backwards with the TV seated on it. If anyone disagrees please post.
Warm color temp. is closest to the NTSC standard (not exactly 6500 degrees K but closer than the other choices.
Review of Picture Quality after 24 hours:
Being very picky, there is only one small negative I have seen with picture quality and that is there is some motion blur I've noticed infrequently that might bother some folks who like to watch fast moving sports like basketball or hockey. However, I have seen it more ofter watching CNN with the news crawl on the bottom - you will likely see some motion blur in the news crawl. Does this bother other owners? Not sure if gamers will be happy with any motion blur whatsoever so if that's a primary purpose for this set you may want to see the set first. I would assume its much more of a problem with LCD sets that don't have the "5 millisecond" response rate of the SXRD, but instead have a "12 millisecond" response time at least.
DJ-V - you might be seeing the motion blur I've also noticed.
Blacks are black to me and 100% acceptable- and that's coming from an ex-Pioneer Elite RPTV CRT owner. Not an issue whatsoever.
Picture quality is really great on a good source like DVD and outstanding on HD sources. Even good enough for the family for analog cable - considering this is a 70 inch set that speaks volumes about this set's great scaler.
