I have an XBR4, which has similar technology to your XBR2. When LED technology replaced LCD, the improvement was noticeable. I replaced the XBR4 with an XBR52-HX909 LED with local dimming. The immediate and noticeable difference was the black level. And, of course, the newer TV had network features not present on the XBR4.
So, IMHO the technology advances since your XBR2 have been so significant, especially now with Ultra HD, that you wouldn't miss the XBR2 for long. Or you could do what I did when I purchased the HX909--move the older TV to the bedroom.
I tend to be an early technology adopter, so when the new speaker-less Sony models come out in October, I'll be making a purchase and moving the HX909 to the bedroom. Anyone want to buy an XBR4 in excellent shape?
