The RTi6s are overkill for surround duty but it's better to have too much than too little. I'm glad to hear you're pleased with your decision. Enjoy your new setup.

OK, let's get back to the noob setup questions. I was an Amazon Prime member for years and, after the price increase last year, decided to switch back to Netflix. I've been using my PS3 to stream...

It's not really "banding" in the way that the TV is having difficulty rendering contours and it's not an artifact of the display technology. I believe it's the result of the physical layout of the...

I don't know if they all have the band along the right side but I do know that early on in the thread it was common to see new owners mention it. I've always taken it for granted that all units have...

Yep, they're not cheap. It's too bad they don't tilt. I imagine they're a bit top-heavy to allow for much range of motion, but then I see it swivels.

As far as lifting the TV above a center channel, besides the obvious solution of mounting it you can also use a stand whose legs slide under your TV stand. BDi makes one called the Arena 9972. It...

If I were building a dedicated home theater I'd use bi-poles as my surrounds. I also wouldn't pay much of a premium for the RTis over the Monitors, but if doing so prices you out of the second sub...

Good advice here so far. My first AVR was an Onkyo and my first upgrade was to Polk Monitors. They're both good values, especially the deals you can find on the Monitors on NewEgg and Polk's eBay...

I have my center channel in the open shelf underneath the TV. The height of the TV determines the height of the speaker, and you just really can't get a good center speaker with drivers that small...

The TY-ER3D4MU work pretty well. They're rechargeable (mini-USB) and have thicker arms that do a better job of blocking the light.

What do you mean by "breaking in with screen wipe"? These TVs do not require breaking in, nor do they benefit from such a ritual. The only "break in" process I'm aware of that may provide a benefit...

Yes, all North American ZTs were assembled in Tijuana. Interesting set of circumstances you have there. What's your build number?

Any 16:9 will work when it comes to getting rid of IR. Just watch some full screen content for a while & enjoy your tv.

I look forward to the pics. The Salk speakers sound great, but as a fan of natural wood decor, it's really exciting seeing what Jim manages to create.

As I recall, the 55" screen size is not the result of consumer demand or the limitations of display technology, but rather to the size of the glass the panels are cut from. Again, the memory is...

The VT & ZT are the same panel, so any perceived & reported difference in IR is purely anecdotal.

IR is present in the TV because it's a plasma. Some plasma models are worse than others, but a technician isn't going to be able to fix IR. I don't suspect the green tint will be addressed either,...

I mean the front stage of the GE soundbar. If 3 channels are within the span of 62" or so and you're let's say 10 feet away, they're hardly providing an experience of 3 discrete channels are they? ...

I can see how this might work well at, say, 4 feet, but if the 3 channels are all in front of you rather than to the side it's not really surround sound is it?

Looks like IR to me. Contrast is relatively low, so your settings don't appear to be contributing to the problem. Not much you can do about it short of not watching subtitled content and wait it...
