I agree, deep bass and also a low noise floor are two of the most important ingredients when trying to provoke cutis anserina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goose_bumps).

I don't want to speak for JWhip, but personally, I disagree with your conclusion. And the votes reflect that I am not alone... :D Maybe not beta tester, but definitely bleeding-edge early adopter!...

Since I reviewed that prototype I have not heard a single thing from StreamTV. I'll follow up, but right now I'd say don't hold your breath. At this point I think it's necessary to wait until CES to...

In a nutshell, one octave you can hear, and one octave you can feel. 15 Hz is very deep. That's one octave from 30 Hz.

If LG is catering to those consumers with TVs that cost as much as cars, then it is in for a rude awakening when next year's OLED sales are as dismal as this year's.

If LG did not care what...

You should use AVS to learn as much as you can about calibration, display devices, and video standards. Just sayin' ;)

So, how long do you think it will take for the 77-incher from LG to shed about 60% of its (estimated) retail price?

How much do you think a 84" UHD OLED would cost? At those sizes, six or seven extra inches usually comes at a huge premium.

The difference is that in two years there won't be a much better car that costs a fraction of what you paid for the current one. That's pretty much guaranteed to be the case with OLED. I'd rather...

Interesting points. Personally, movie theater black levels are a real issue for me. The limited color space of rec. 709 is not. That's one of the reasons I prefer watching movies at home.
