I don't think that the SF "sound" generally appeals to many in the AVS crowd, who are more preoccupied worrying about accuracy, graphs, and high SPLs -- they also seem less inclined to pay extra for...

You should look into the Monitor Audio Radius90. They're an excellent-sounding mini-monitor that meet your size specifications, coming in at 4 15/16" wide. They're built really well too. They are...

If you want the best TV under 50", get the Samsung UN49KS8000.

55" opens up a lot more options as almost every TV is available in that size.

Are you saying standard mode looks good on the KS9800 or Sony displays (like the Z9D)? They were all in standard, which generally looks like crap across all brands. IMO they were all in a rather...

It was pretty dark in both rooms (the 65 and 100 were in separate rooms) but I didn't notice any egregious blooming on the larger one unless I stood way off angle. I got within maybe 5-6 feet of the...
