Yeah, that Vegas scene is incredible on the 940D, and all the lower Sony sets are not even close, including the 930D. I like the way all the colorful casino lights glow brighter than the other...

So, between the ZD9 and X940D, is there yet any consensus as to how much better the ZD9 is and how much more people are willing to pay to get it? If you had a budget up to $6,000, and could get...

Thanks for the feedback! Well, the source for both was the professional 4K demo loop they play in the store. And the two TVs looked almost identical, so I would think they were on the same viewing...

I spent some time at Best Buy the other day, comparing the 65X750D and 65X850D. Going in to it, I just assumed the 850D would be clearly superior to the 750D, but that did not seem to be the case. ...

Yeah, I'd think the Aeris would need a larger space, which I do not have, with room to "breathe". I need an "all-around" speaker that will perform very well in a typical family room setting. This...

So, do you have the 212s on stands? I've always been mostly a floor standing guy, and I see that JTR has a 210RT, which looks like it could sit on the floor. Have you listened to the 210RT at all?

I heard the Aeris one time, and they are darned impressive, but out of my league. I do hope one day to pick up a set of the Focus SE, and also the Marquis center channel.

Yes, the 1030 supports 8 ohm speakers, and you just select the 6 ohm setting for 8 ohm speakers. But that setting should have nothing to do with getting "hissing" from the speakers. Something else...
