I agree. Both are very close. The JS9500 is just fantastic. If money was no object, I would get the 9500. But, the LG 9300 is at $1800 right now and for that price, it's hard to say no.

The LG 9300 1080p OLED is your best bet but it's still over a grand above your requirement. It may come down around $2k later on, maybe some Black Friday deals will help out.

I think we are still...

Thanks for chipping in, tinvo. I agree with you, I never realized how laid back the RC-70s are until after I bought them and auditioned other speakers. One dealer had a B&W 804s on display which he...

I'm glad Sony is focusing mainly on upscaling. Since that will still be what the majority of us watch, for at least a couple more years. 4K is just an added bonus now, IMO. I will definitely buying...

You are right! Do you think those original LCD XBRs can still holds its own up against today's Sony XBR LEDs or will their new LEDs crush it?

Is the X1 chip also available in the 65 inch version or just the flagship 75"? Sony's website states that the 75 inch offers "3x contrast" while the 65 only has "2x contrast."
