At least you get some FALD with these, and the price is pretty low on the 55 inch model. The equivalent Samsung (JS8500) doesn't have FALD at the same price. Vizio is definitely going to be the...

Thanks. Mine rattles sometimes, but rarely. I built a hushbox which I leave open for the most part since I don't find the volume high anyway. I should probably close it but it's impossible to adjust...

I'm considering now waiting for the Panasonic cx850, but I'm also wondering about the cx600u 50 incher for 1 grand retail. they all have near DCI color gamut so that probably means 10-bit panels even...

Actually, no, it's yourself who is not up to date on your specs. High speed HDMI cables from the HDMI 1.4 era are perfectly able to send 18gbps unless they are defective somehow.

And 2.0a has the...

You don't need special cables, only "high speed cables". There are no specific HDMI 2.0 cables, let alone 2.0a. High speed HDMI cables are quite cheap now even for long runs.

I basically watch it for Annie now. Although the episode with Nic Cage I spat my soda out my nose when he did that. It was one of the most hilarious things I've seen on TV in years.

The peak brightness that you see at a cinema is not the same as what you can do on your 65 inch TV at home and has nothing to do with what the signal is capable of displaying.

If so, they wouldn't...

What sucks is that since we're using powered speakers, we really need full pre-outs and ideally XLR pre-outs, which means a processor which means probably two grand for an AVR with that. Ludicrously...

Isn't Auro channel based? I don't see how pre-mixed channels can really compete with a proper downmix of 3D objects towards your exact speaker positions in 3D space.

Minor nitpick, 422 is 2/3rds the bandwidth of 444, whereas 420 is exactly half.

From high end PCs, I believe the best image quality in games will be achieved by using 422 at 12 bits instead of 444...
