Disappointed to see that Marantz are no longer using toroidal transformers in their receivers, and nor are Denon. I've been thinking about replacing my SR8002 but the 2015 flagships make me worry...

Does anyone know if it's likely that there may be a 55" version of the CX900?

Also, the base has a really nice chrome look, which also wasn't clear on the Panasonic site.

rlindo, could you let me know what your impressions are with regards to the sharpness of the CX850's image?

I'm strongly considering it, for the better dimming and glossy screen, but it's tough to walk away from the Panny. One thing: it appeared to me that the JS8500 displayed sharper images than the CX850...

That's what I'm thinking as well. I worry it may look a bit of a mess letting it hang off the sides, though, but part of me also thinks there's a chance it could look okay, or even oddly sleek,...

Plexiglass is an interesting idea! The more I'm thinking about this, I'm starting to think that, because the 8500 base is a clean straight metal line, it may not look especially bad overshooting the...

That's a great idea. Unfortunately, the stand has some pretty unique angling to it that may make it difficult to get a piece of tempered glass cut appropriately. Attaching an image here to...

Yeah, my thoughts as well. I wish Samsung went back to the smaller stands of last year's lineup, or at least provided an option to special order alternate-sized ones. The JS9000 stand is even wider....

Shoot. I really do prefer glossy screens. This almost makes me tempted to go for a JS8500, only the absurdly wide stand won't fit on my cabinetry. Maybe I can cut the stand to fit, lol.

One thing I didn't think to take note of is how glossy (or not) the CX850 screen is when I was playing with the set the other day. Would you guys consider it to be a glossy screen? I personally love...

Interestingly enough, I just looked up a review of my old B7000 to see how its black levels measured, and unless I'm reading it wrong, it appears to have very similar black levels to the CX850. Could...

BTW, I realize I made an error in my previous post. I'd meant to...

Just double-checked, and indeed, you're right. I could have sworn I'd read that the larger x850C's were full-array, but that's not the case. Sorry about that.

Would anyone happen to know what the dimensions are of the CX850's stand on the 55-inch model? Even Panasonic tech support doesn't seem to know, weirdly enough.

Also, has anyone had a chance to...

55-inch model of Panasonic's CX850 vs Sony's 850C?

Has anyone been able to compare these? My sense is that that the Panasonic would have the edge, but there's been nearly no reviews of the 55-inch model. In terms of up conversion quality from 1080P...

Oh shoot, that's way too wide. Are Samsung insane? Presume there's no way to buy an HU9000 stand and connect it to a JS900. :(
