That's a very big space, and too big for the speakers for sure. But as you're using them, they fill the bill and that's what counts. My space is much smaller, 14 x 18.5, 10.5 ceiling, system along...

Although I'm not a fan of speakers that need to be plugged in, I will nevertheless pay attention to the Triton One review in the next issue of The Absolute Sound.

And as far as the power...

A question. How would you describe the sound of these in your space? I have a pair of M-3si speakers with no complaints, but try keeping up with possible successors should they die on me....

I have done a potentially bad thing, but have also mitigated it, I hope.

In times past I was without my system or some part of it and didn't particularly miss it. The adjustment was natural, and I was fine. Perspective, and how much importance I attach to things,...

I pretty much stay away from those threads. To me, what's going on here and the related threads is tame by comparison. And as for the shootout, I know which set I'd buy if my PRO-111 quit on me...

At times, yes. I do watch off-angle for brief periods when I'm cooking and come to the living room door to check on a game.

As for posting a photo, I'm not sure what you mean. My TV is a Kuro, if...

I wonder if the seemingly endless war over whether cables make a difference could take the mantle one day.

Ouch. I am not as technical as many here, but looking at this I'd be hard-pressed to buy either OLED. If for no other reason that this indicates a problem, whether or not I'd see it in actual...

I think that's fair. I mentioned being turned off by the Samsung OLED's red look off-axis. And going by the photo at the top of the thread (I wasn't there for that part), the F8500 seems to do best.

Thanks. Assuming the low end of LG's half-brightness claim, that's still 27 years and change of use at 5 hours a day. Of course, if my Kuro holds up, this won't be an issue until I'm around 80 at...

Interesting, your first two columns look a lot like mine. I had to leave early, so I voted only on the first three attributes. Off-axis, the Samsung OLED got very red during the grayscale test. I...

As I understand it, shorter lifespan is one of the drawbacks of LG's version of the technology. What is the lifespan of this TV, if anyone knows?

I'm wary of OLED for longevity reasons so I wasn't thinking about it much, though in terms of screen size you're right. I'd have to hope the set isn't wider than the aforementioned 57" though.

Having decided to take a splurge, I've ordered a Samsung 24" TV, their UN24H4000 LED LCD. It's edge-lit, but at this size I'm not too concerned. And it has a component input, so I can pair it with my...

I have plans to attend the shootout on Saturday. The Sunday start time is more favorable, but would have made Sunday difficult to navigate for me. So it's Saturday and needing to leave early.
