I probably overstated the fact about 'equivalents'. There are of course some fine used processors that are being sold for similar prices. But not a whole lot of those.

I picked up the A500 myself. My first impressions were similar, however, I've read a couple of other reviews that the sound improved with time. Time for your ears to get used to it, or time for it to...

I have to agree. Very good sound, including a wide soundstage .A few reviews suggest they may not be the most robust around, but given some TLC should be able to handle daily duty.

Going on 2 years, still get the 1 second black screen around 2 minutes after power on. Everything else has been rock steady.

It is probably not that the 'problem' is more popular among the 60" size, it is more likely there are a greater number of displays sold in that size.
