I think it was the Legend that had amp problems. Not the Empire. I own both and the Legend amp gets hotter.

In addition to the dark sides, it looks like there's a huge 90 degree scratch on top of and to the right of the credits. Is the TV doing that?

Ideally your front 3 should be from the same line, but they don't have to be. With newer receivers having good room correction software, the receiver can greatly flatten the frequency response from...

On ceiling. I want to use 1/4-20 mounts. I'm using kef XQs for the front 3. They're discontinued and very expensive. Way more than I would want to spend for what are effectively ceiling surrounds.

Glad it worked out. I have an Empire and it's a beast and weighs a ton. I wouldn't unload it at a low price.

Ideally, you should have matching subs but in theory there's no reason they have to...

I don't understand the issue. Is it that your sub and mains are out of phase or the sub is localizable. Because they are two completely different issues.

The phase issue can be fixed by adjusting...

Good review.

Now the OLED is $7k so the price difference isn't as much. I've seen both TVs and both look excellent. The OLED can get really really black. I think that's what sets it apart. Too bad...

:) I really hope you're right.

It's the height that would be a problem for me. A 7200 wouldn't fit without some sawing.

Do you know the dimensions and usd msrp of the 6200?

I saw 2299 euros on a German site. Hope it's less in USD.

I have a 4311 that barely fits and was wondering if it's about the same size.

I have a 4311 and I may switch to a 6200 when it becomes available to do Atmos. Unless doing Atmos, there's no need to upgrade.



All UHD TVs will upscale to 2160 so no need for the receiver to...

Is your FM antenna on your roof?

If so, it should be grounded. Clamp a thick wire to it and run it into a long stake in the ground.

Glad to see discovery on board. If ESPN and discovery go 4K, all the others will have to follow.



Porn in 4K will help too, but I don't think Best Buy will demo that.
