You should pay more attention Dude.

He's in Canada, the list price is 4999.00 at the Sony Canada store. Sales taxes in Canada can be 12-15%, so $5600.00 should be about the right price for him.

I have a 96" CCW and don't see any sheen at all. I found that the samples are just too small to do any real comparison.

No you don't, plex recommends a CPU Pasmark score of 2000 to transcode a single 1080p stream, a 2.4Ghz Core2 Duo would work. A 480i stream would be easy for that CPU. If more power is needed, 2nd Gen...
