The design here is really solid, but I'd actually prefer individual LCR speakers with 2D arrays so then the sound could be directed and focused there via DSP to any XYZ coordinate in the room (couch...

I use three 308s as LCR for my theater and a pair of 305s in the rear. The LCRs are all vertical. Horizontal centers don't do it for me.

This one's a definite "rental".

I was going to see it in Dolby Vision since I'm in Cali right now but after reading the reviews I decided not to bother. The main thing that bothers me is that the...

I did not know that. But the consumer data, which the TV will be displaying, is indeed limited to 1000 nits. At least AFAIK.

I have read however that Dolby Vision actually uses 11 of its 12 bits...

Unlike others, I really don't think Dolby Vision is all that complex to implement with a firmware update on an existing chip once they already have 14-bit processing and HDR10 support.

There's no point in going more than 1000 nits if it's only meant to play back HDR10, ergo, it must...

How absurd of them. No wonder Sharp is out of the TV business. If they couldn't make dual LCD sell, even for studio monitors which have far higher prices, I just don't get it.

Good catch.

There is indeed no point in the backlight going to 4000 nits unless there's a video signal capable of driving it (without merely expanding HDR10 out artificially which would reduce the...

Lasers are pretty bright and ideal for the linearly polarized nature of LCDs but LED lumens are dirt cheap, like you can buy many thousands of lumens worth of LEDs for not much at all.

Good point about how the back panel can be lower res to save money, I was going to mention that but it's all academic for TVs now, I'm not interested in TVs so much as projectors.

Several 2015 TVs had native 10-bit panels, and many of those (Samsung, Sony) are supposed to get firmware updates in order to unlock HDR decoding.
