Thanks.

Damn, I came real close to pulling the trigger on a 65" KS8000 today. But the more I would move by off center in the store, the more I'd watch the brightness drop off.

I understand all of the comments. I just was feeling good about things and shared a "today" positive note.

I should have known better. I'm sure the next comment will be this is the AVSCIENCE forum.

I saw that coming. Forgive me for sharing.

I will add that I have a VW60 that did develop the issue, so these eyes have seen it before.

The on button on my A21 doesn't turn the amp on and off unless, in general, I'm pushing exactly straight in. Being a rounded button, sometimes contact is a little high or low on it. Is...
