92" Mitsubishi DLP @ CES!!! - Page 60

post #1771 of 1927
I would say I doubt the speakers would cause that unless they were on the same shelf as the tv, were large and caused constant vibration that transmitted to the tv. My sub shakes the whole house, sounds like there may be something loose.

Does anyone know when we can purchase the WD-92842? Price? The website says no online nor local sellers (authorized).

what is the real difference between the 840 and the 842. I really wish the companies would sell a version of the unit without the speakers for those of us with our own speakers. It is surly a waste to not use the speakers, but no way they can match my HT speakers.
post #1775 of 1927
The only real difference is the RF vs. IR emitters. I'm still not finding it online anywhere through authorized resellers. I will call Paul's TV soon and see if they have it or when they expect it. Luckily I have time as I wait to save up to pay in full. I never finance my home theater products.

I don't think that leaving the speakers off will make that much of a dent in the price so just don't use the speakers like we tend to do with all TVs connected to receivers.

UPDATE: Paul doesn't have it listed yet, as to when they will get their first shipment. So I'm on a waiting list. I will let you know when I find out.
post #1776 of 1927
Thanks, I can't justify the increase in price for the IR vs. RF!!
post #1777 of 1927
There is no increase in price. The list price is the same as last year, so you are getting more for the same price. The 840 is last year's model, and the price difference is only there because the 840 is on clearance now as dealers unload the older models.

This conversation happens every model year. If you want a deal, buy last year's model. If you need/want a feature newly available this year, buy this year's model. If you want the best of both worlds, wait another 11 months, and this year's model will be on sale. (but then there will be more debate about the new "triple y radiation shield" or some such gizmo in the 2013 sets)

Not sure I understand. Looks like you can get the 840 for around $2600 and the 842 is over $4000 where I have seen it. Am I confusing something?
post #1779 of 1927
I guess a year from now they will be unloading the 842 for $2600. smile.gif
post #1780 of 1927
Pretty much, yes.

The 92840 was $5999 when it came out, and street prices began around 4-5 grand. It has dropped steadily in price to about 3500-4000 until this month, when they are clearing them out in order to make room for the new model.
post #1781 of 1927
Yes, there are some unauthorized places selling it, but I prefer an authorized dealer IMHO. I also will be willing to catch one of the limited time deep discount sales that appear every now and then especially around sale holidays. You can't go wrong with either the 840 or 842, because once they are dialed in, they are amazing sets. I'm growing tired of salivating over other's sets and want my own to drool over. I was upset that I used my funds for other things last year, but the lower pricings now are much more pleasing. I prefer Paul's TV since they pricematch and are right here in town. I'm looking to team mine up with the Onkyo HT-S9400THX. I have had very pleasing results from certain HTiB sets. Plus other Mits owners have recommended this combination.
post #1782 of 1927
Can someone knowledgeable explain the difference between the IR emitter(840) and the RF emitter (842). that seems to be the only real difference.
post #1783 of 1927
Here is another link for an ongoing discussion of the differences

Mits 92" DLP's 92840 or 92842

I will look for a more detailed discussion.

IR stands for InfraRed. It uses infrared light pulses to sync the glasses with the TV, so the proper eye gets the proper picture.
RF is Radio Frequency (Bluetooth) which syncs via radio waves.

RF is touted to work even when there is no line of sight to the TV, while IR requires line of sight to work. Some question that advantage though, since one is looking at the TV when watching 3D anyway, so one is always in line of sight, and most glasses hold their sync for a few moments if the signal is lost, such as looking down at the popcorn or remote. Other possible concerns include the possibility of the IR signal interferring with remote control operation and the like, but the main advantage with RF seems to be confidence that one will have constant sync no matter what they do or where they go.

It's really just another option. The lastest greatest thing. (The 842 gives you a choice of either IR or RF built in, and there may be RF emitters available that plug into the emitter port on the back of the 840, though I haven't seen any available)
post #1785 of 1927
thanks for the information. I will probably just go with the 840. I have my 82in sold.

I went for the contemporary look, this baby can grow(expands) with my future larger widescreens
http://plateaucorp.com/index.php/furniture/home-entertainment/tv-stands-cabinets/valencia-5187.html
Another good choice from Plateau is the Valencia 79, at $1499.99. While not quite as long as the Valencia 5187, the unit is nearly 10" lower. The top shelf of the Valencia 79 is only 13" in height (the 21.5" that's specified on the Plateau website is overall height, measured to the top of the raised back panel), while the Valencia 5187 is 22.5" in height. The Valencia 79 thus more centers you on the screen's "sweet spot." The Valencia 79 is just 2.9" narrower than the 81.9" width of the WD-92840 (vs. the 87" width of the Valencia 5187), so it's a pretty good match size-wise. Plus, for added ambience and to ease eye strain when viewing in a darkened room, the Valencia 79 features integrated bias lighting along the rear of its raised back panel. Not sure if the included lamps are 6500K, but you could easily switch them out. Each model can support up to 300 lb. on its top shelf and is available in either genuine black oak or walnut veneer. Both models ship fully assembled. Here are links to the companies that I have found offer some nice A/V stands and media consoles for larger sets: BDI, Salamander Designs, California House and Plateau. California House, in particular, offers a customization option that is not available elsewhere. I’m sure there must be some other good choices out there, but the above companies have worked well for my clients.

Thought I would show some pics of the stand I made from IKEA kitchen counter tops and IKEA bar top brackets. It measures about 24” X 74” X 15" high. The TV will hang over about 4” on each side. It is ridiculously heavy and will take two people to lift. The pics show it with the protective tape still on the brushed stainless edges.

Looks good! I had a similar idea using hollow core doors in order to get an 80" width.
post #1790 of 1927
I have very thin white vertical streaks on my TV from PS3 and cable source. Anyone else seen this problem?
post #1791 of 1927
after the TV is on for about 2 minutes, the screen gets a flannel shirt pattern...looks like a service call...glad I still have the 73" Mits

Stand?
post #1794 of 1927
I made the stand out of scrap wood from work. It stands 15" x 70". It was made for the 82" that this tv replaced it with. So I have about a 5" overhang on either side now. Would like to make it a little lower, but there is no way I would be able to fit my components underneath.

Awesome pics.. but what are those monster TOWER speakers?
post #1796 of 1927
Here's a few of mine , I have had my 92840 since they came out and had a buddy at work make me the stand for the tv and the component rack for a total of $150 in materials from Home Depot.450450450
post #1797 of 1927
Rustolem, those tower speakers are Klipsch KLF-30's.

The front bottom panel that runs along the width of the tv with the Mits logo on it vibrates loudly when there is heavy bass. Anybody else experience this, and if so, have you discovered any kind of a solution for it?

I have had the same problem. At first I thought it might be due to something on my TV stand (like the glass top on it or the legs), however it may just be the base of the TV (or front panel like you said). It would be appreciated if we could get some feedback from other owners on this issue.

Just moved in to a new house and tempted by 92840. I guess I should look for a stand first.
