I'm going to be in the market for a new set this fall, 65"+. I'm disappointed that they don't currently have the XVT series out.
I'm with grandpadoc, the front facing speakers on the earlier sets are good, I have a powered sub woofer connected to mine and it makes it sound great. I rarely use my Onkyo unless it's a special movie.
The 4k sets sound very interesting but I bet they will cost 4k.
