There is no such thing as an Onkyo 5011. The new "flagship" model (AVR) from Onkyo is the TX-NR3030 following the TX-NR3010 and there will be a PR-SC5530 (prepro) following the PR-SC5509. Both Doby...

Looking at the votes casted up to now, barely 50% (47.77%) would not pay more then 10% additionally for the current state of OLED TV, compared to current LED TV prices, if at all.
Interesting.

To me the new 2014 lineup seems to have dropped the more sophisticated room eq (Audyssey) for a lesser and much simpler algorithm called AccuEQ.

The floorstands remove any hollowness from male voices and other instruments thus providing a very natural sounding soundstage but you need (a) really good sub(s) to support them down at the bottom.
