That's my position on the Sony KDS-60A3000 as well I too believe it has the best HD PQ of any set that my friends have and still think Sony should have never dropped the model.
I also use the Monster top of the line cable for my duo player and yes it is expensive.
I just wish I have discovered the Tartan cable first. its that good and cost a fraction.
But since you don't need any cable...
I think it's due to a combination of both processing and signal strength. * Edit
Probably because of a newer generation of tuners?
I did an A/B comparison for several people and all of them said the same thing "OMG what a picture" Every time the A won!
The A being the internal B the DVR tuner
I did not think the PQ could be any better for OTA HD than I already had with the internal tuner which was also an OMG PQ it was and is an excellent picture.
But hands down the external DTV HD tuner has better depth, colors and textures.
The depth is what will really draw you in.
Oh and the Dolby Digital is clearer as well.
And to think all I was expecting was a good HD DVR and got a nice surprise, double bonus, triple if I count the Dolby improvement.
Thanks Ken for the clarification
