Ditto what Brian/ManWithAPlan said.
I also sold my 929 via the AVS Classified a couple weeks ago (you can view my closed ad in the closed ads section). My listing was active less than 2 weeks. I had 6 offers, 2 were low-balls, 4 were real. The successful buyer drove down from Chicago 486 miles each way and paid my asking price in cash. Since we're not supposed to talk dollars on AVS, PM me if you're curious what my asking price was.
Because I had an extended direct-from-Sony extended warranty expiring Jan 2012, I managed to secure a new, sealed box optical block for my Qualia last summer, which I chose not to install until this coming Thursday (my screen has finally just become too green for me to take it any longer). I'm hoping this new optical block gets me down the road another year with my 006 and that maybe by then there will be an 80" Elite or some other set with commensurate quality in an over 70" size. Worst case the 70" Elite is already available, which Brian has already reviewed for us on this thread.
By all reports, the Sony 929 has a wonderful picture, but I would not have liked shrinking my panel size down to 65".
Stew, ironically I will end up with a used Qualia optical block in my possession, which you and I were seeking a few months ago when we were on our mission to see if it could be successfully re-built by an after-market tech. Too bad that trail ran cold.
