Realistically if you want a stand really that sturdy, you would really need something liek the post above. I know its pricey, but its somewhat of an investment. I Kind of wish I just spent the money on something like that now, but I could not find anything that woudl go with the rest of my stuff at the time for under 800, a lot of the ones ive seen were all red/natural/tan colored.
I will see if I can dig up the TV stand that coems with the TV and see if it will fit on it.
As far as the speakers go. They are HTD Level 2 bookshelf speakers, Yes I have them all around, though I will be upgrading the fronts to towers, the bookshelfs give plenty of sound, but it feels so empty with the skinny stands so I'm just going to get the full towers to put in their place.

I purchased this one. No particle board there. It's very sturdy-- I sit/lay on it all the time when I'm tweaking things. My TV is mounted on the wall above it. You get what you pay for! Furniture is definitely not cheap... cool.gif

Just a suggestion for your speaker setup-- why not just add a quality subwoofer instead of replacing your fronts? You're going to crossover at 80hz anyway.... just saying smile.gif

I know we're off topic here, but anyway, at least you can use your existing fronts as surround backs smile.gif 7.1 is sweet my friend. Funny that you want to change your fronts to floor standers, as I just installed a new Rythmik E15, and was thinking "Dang I don't really need these big Klipsch RF-62 II's now" cool.gif

I heard my friends Synergy F30 speakers the other day. I really did not care for how they sounded, I personally think my HTD's sound more natural. Though I will admit I was a little upset when we did a little test and turned his speakers up to nearly max on the reciever and his did not get distorted in the sligtest bit. My little bookshelfs could not take the beating though, +7 and they started to distort, I would never listen to them that loud ever, was just a giant dick measuring contest..

Really impressed with the beating the klipsch can take.

I want the floor standing more for looks really.. Sound won't be much different from these bookshelf speakers.

To all the calibration gurus out there:

I had a guy form Geek squad from Best buy calibrate my 70 inch but I was surprised that he didn't touch the color management settings and only adjusted the hi and lo gain of the three basic colors. Is this normal? Should I tell to come back?

The picture does look better then before but I think it could be better.

Cheers.

Sounds like less than complete service.
I hope you didn't pay too much.
You can do your own with the disc available on this site.
I did my own 845 and love the results:

Why pay Bestbuy when people post settings for free on here, and you can tweak them however you want, all for free?

Well because all sets are different even though they are the same model. I did use several settings posted on this thread but never achieved what I would call a good calibration. I even tried to calibrate using spyder 4 HDTV but got poor results.....
Oh well!

It was fun to play with though.

I have watched several movies in 3D, and they all looked GREAT, I have NO complaints on the 3D
post #1931 of 2660
are the calibration setting sticky? If I unplug the unit to the setting stay or revert to factory settings?
post #1932 of 2660
The calibrations stay.

Then just play with them. Or if you're going to have a professional do it, get a real professional, not some idiot from BB.

Oh, blu ray 3D movies look far superior to MKV, or broadcast. You'll enjoy it!

I am looking at getting a LC-70LE847 and I am looking for the VESA number that this TV uses. I downloaded the manual and looked through the Sharp website and it seems to be missing from the doc. I would like to order a new articulating mount, if needed, before I actually get the TV in house. The 70" size seems to put most mount suppliers to the largest mount (supporting 300#s) and I think that is over kill. My current mount says it supports a 60" and 150#s.

If no one has the number could someone place a ruler on the screws and give me a center to center measurement in either inches or MM and I will convert to VESA if you give me inches. The reason for this is that I want to use a mount I currently have a 60" Sony installed on. The Sony is 400 x 300 and I am guessing that my current mount will handle the VESA but I would like to move the Sony and I would like to leave the existing mount on the wall and buy the same mount for the new Sony location. .

While you have the ruler in your hand please also measure the distance from the bottom of the display frame to the bottom screw on the mount so I can get an idea if I will also need to move the mount higher.

Thank you

Jack

I bought a 70LE8470U from Costco about a month ago. This is my first LCD greater than 19". My main TV for the last 7 yrs. has been a Toshiba 42HP95.
I'm new to all the talk about clouding , bleeding and flashlighting etc. On a dark screen I can see some minor clouding in the lower left corner. The rest of the screen
is not totally black. I've taken some pictures but the clouding and the backlight bleeding is so faint it doesn't show up. I"m assuming this is inherent to all LCDs,
especially at this size. My issues seem pretty minor compared to some I have seen in this thread.

They probably don't pay them to do full calibrations with 10 point W/B and CMS because it easily takes 2-3 hours to do it. They probably do calibrations by volume and are only paid by the store to take less than an hour to do it.

You could try, but don't be surprised if they say that's all that's included.

If you look in the "Appendix", "Setting the TV on the wall" section of the manual, all those measurments as well as others measurements, bolt size and location are given and also pictured. It's page 82 in mine.

In the manual I downloaded from Sharp "setting the TV on the wall" is in the Appendix and it is page 84 and it is one page and states that this TV should only be mounted on the wall using the optional Sharp mount AN-52AG4 and does not give other specifics. Since the pages are different I surmise that we have different rev levels.

During my searches for mounts it seems that vendors are saying that most Sharp LCDs in this size class use VESA 400 x 400 and that will work for me and if you could verify that I would be appreciative.

I just mounted my older 52" Aquos in my bedroom, I got a swivel mount from monoprice, kinda scary see'ing that this like 2 feet away from the wall, but it sure looks good!

I have a 60" 847 mounted with a NON sharp mount and a 52" sharp mounted with a monoprice tilting/swivel mount. Both are fine

I used this mount for my 70" 847.  http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082806&p_id=8587&seq=1&format=2

jackmd,
from the appendix: you need 4 M8 screws, with 1.25 pitch. The VESA screw holes A (horizontal spacing) is 23 5/8 in (600 mm), the vertical spacing (B) is 15 3/4 in (400mm). Mounting hole depth on the set is 31/64 in (12mm).
