Taking price out of the equation is it worthwhile to switch from a Sharp Elite LED to a Sony 4K XBR850C model?

I'm sort of in a similar position: I have a 60" "Sharp" Elite LED and absolutely love it. I've been considering upgrading to a 4K TV but am choosing to wait until there is significantly more content...

Well that certainly won't work! I've never been a fan of placing a TV up high but I understand the asthetic (sp?). Good luck, my friend (and ditto on the phantom center solution)!

Question: If I were to upgrade my 7701 to either a 7702 or the 8802 the primary difference is that the 8802 is upgradeable (is that a word?) to dtsX and HDCP 2.2, correct? Aside from these upgrades...

One more thing - these are high end speakers so the quality of the components used is fairly high. Thus, while the speakers are likely 15 years old or so they should still last for years given the...

I have that same set with an MX-350 sub instead of the 150. At the time each of the three front speakers retailed for $900, the rears were $700 each, and the sub was $1,500 or so (so $6k or so for...

One more thing I'll add to my list: I absolutely love my Dragonfly 2.0. Does a really, really nice job with the sound! I also have a NuForce DAC/amp which I like but not quite as much as my Dragonfly.

I'd go for the Def Tech but would only recommend in-ceiling speakers for Atmos (vs. up-firing speakers).
