I'm seriously considering getting the hl-t6189s, but I have a few questions:
I've had a 65" Hitachi CRT (isf calibrated, duvetyne lining, etc.) for the last 5 years, so I'm wondering how this will compare in picture quality to that. Will blacks on the Samsung be as deep? I'm assuming I would want a calibration on the new set...
I've tried to look at similar Samsung's in local stores, but the new ones aren't available here yet.
Do you think there will be a big perceived difference going from 65" down to 61"?
This new set would be mostly for Dish HD and PS3 (Blu-ray).
One more thing: right now my center channel speaker is on top of the Hitachi, but I'm sure that won't work for the new Samsung sets. I've looked at pictures of the Samsung floor stand (TR50X3B), but it's unclear whether I could put the center speaker under the tv in the stand. Does anyone know if it could fit? It seems the glass shelves are fixed, but I assume you could just now install one of them. I have a Definitive Tech. CLR 2000 speaker, which is pretty big and hefty.
