Dang, I was going to be there as well, but my father's failing health ruled it out. I hope all in attendance have a great time!

Thanks for the review link! I do have one question though. The reviewer stated that the x930E can get much brighter than the 900E. How is that possible, considering that the 930E is perimeter lit,...

So I finally got by Best Buy yesterday and was able to view the 900E and 930E, as well as older Sony TVs. I just want to see if I'm alone in this impression: the 65" 900E seemed to out perform the...

I'd have to agree with that. For a roughly $2000 increase in price over the Classic HD, you get into the Air Motion tweeters, and two10" woofers. 22Hz bass extension as well! I was able to do some...

Ah, I see. I have the DVD-Audio of What's New, the stereo track of which is actually 24/192 resolution. I wonder if the new AP SACD release will offer any sonic advantage. Linda's voice gets a bit...

Is the one WestCoastD linked to on Music Direct the new Analog Productions release? I can't see that anywhere on Music Direct's listing. Thanks.

Yes, something similar is wrong with my X5200. Sometimes when I select the remote button for HD Radio, there will be no sound. Also, the display on the front of the receiver is not accurate. For...

Oh, I do remember now that one time I did have to do a "hard reset" on the 5200 because some things were not working right(can't remember exactly the details). It might be worth a try to do a hard...

That's very odd. Have you applied all available firmware updates? If so, I think this is going to be a matter for Denon support, as it appears that most of the options supposed to be there are just...

I just don't see how Sony is going to sell the 75X900E, considering that one can get a 75X940D for less, AND that, according to this review, the E series may have less dimming zones than the 940D.

Yeah, I wanted a 75" with Dolby Vision. I guess that was a pipe dream.:eek:

Yeah, I really want a 75", and I'd like better blacks than the 850D series, so that leaves out both the 930D(65" is the largest) and the 75 inch 850D. I'm trying to find out some details on the 850D...

I have the Denon X5200W, and also am using HDMI connection. My BDP-83 bitstreams my SACDs as DSD, and the DENON plays it fine. I assume the X4200 would as well, but not sure. I also play DVD-Audio...

No, no final decision yet. Lots of factors involved. I actually haven't even thought about the finish yet.

As to Focus, in any version, vs Aeris, James explained that it is the move from the 7"...

Sony 75" 850D now seems down to $2500. Would it be worth stepping up to for picture quality? Admittedly, no Dolby Vision. And I wonder if it will drop even more to around $2K?

75" 850D, or E?

Was looking yesterday at the 75" 850D at BB, and looks really good. I feel that, from my viewing distance, I really need 75" in order to really resolve and benefit from 4K resolution. I'd love a...
