It's amazing how many of us have a story that is similar if not identical to yours. I too have a 60 inch KURO plasma. I too wrote off the Sony 85 inch XBR X850D because of all the bad reports about...

I think it's important to make clear that although the 3060 is 11.2 capable, only 9 of the 11 speaker outputs are powered, so in order to drive a 7.1.4 Atmos setup, a separate power amp will be...
