Me too, I need the dimensions of the footprint of the pedistal on the bottom of the TV, not the overall dimensions - those are easy to find anyways.

Michael, the 28" tall is a typo. If you look in the PDF for the stand, the real hight is something like 20 5/8".

If you look at the pictures on "Crutchfield.com" you'll clearly see that the front face plates are kind of light to medium GRAY and NOT BLACK as I seem to have seen them on other sites. Yesterday afternoon I saw what I was told was the new 60 inch "A20" and it was much darker.......like a "charcoal" and not a deep black. I hope they are at least a "charcoal" color and not light grey.

What color do you think/know the front of the A10's is?

I don't have any particular information about the A10's, but I do know the picture for the XS models on Crutchfield are very misleading. The bezel on the XS is actually much darker (essentially black) in real life than in the Crutchfield photo, which makes it look light grey. I don't know if it was just the lighting during the photo shoot or what, but the color is completely different in reality.

Thank you somebody.

The base is the same width as the set on front dimension and about 30" wide rear. The set is just over 14" front to back

The picture trim is not black, but charcoal. If you's seen a JVC DILA, just a little lighter charcoal than the frame on the JVC

Whew, I was a little concerned there.

I'm certainly interested in any third-party stand suggestions as well.

went to CC yesterday, they have the 42 and 50 in in their computer system already. The sales person at the store showed me it in their system and said that they would be expecting 4 of them, and he said in his opinion probably sometime by the end of this week or early next week. Does anyone know what do you think they will offer the 42in and 50in for?

You sure about that?

This picture clearly shows a base or pedistal that is not the same witdth as the overall front dimension.

TV is 46 5/8" wide. That said if I scale this pic base should be about 39". In any event pretty sure it's < 42"

You're right. I measured that with a tape this morning. The base is so unobtrusive, I completely missed it, until I saw your post. The width of the footprint is 33" The color frame is darker than the picture (probably reflection of bright light on the flat charcoal surfice.

Now it just needs to get here!!
post #75 of 10847
I stopped by Ultimate Electronics again and asked when they were going to get the 50a10 in. They still said that their warehouse in Colorado should get them tomorrow and they could have one as early as Friday.

However, I asked about the price and they said that it was $2799 instead of the $2499 posted on the Sony website. Could they be raising the price after they hit the stores??????

Hello all,
I think I may have a problem. My center channel sits on a stand and is 37" tall. Does anyone think I'll have trouble sitting the A10 on a table starting at 35"? I'm mainly concerned with viewing angle and am worried there will be dimming at the top of the screen from sitting the TV so high.

To me that seems to be to high but I guess if you were far enough back and couldn't you just prop the rear up a bit to angle the screen down slightly.

The Sony LCD Projection sets have never suffered from any real motion blur. I'm sure in a statistical way it's there but in general when you're looking at an LCD Projection set you won't notice motion blur like you would on an flat panel LCD Projection.

I don't think Sony or anyone else is raising the price. I always have thought that UE was more expensive than other retailers. Thier sale prices are usually higher than most stores regular prices IMO.

I just checked out my local CC in Wisconsin, and they said the same thing about the price being $2799 when they get them.

Just called our local SEARS.........Price: "Priceless" at $2,499!!!
post #83 of 10847
yeah but CC was probably offer them at a discount once they come in. Kucher, did they say when they would be receiving them in the stores or when you can order them off their website

AkaStp is right about UE. I checked again and they said that they will be 10% off the price of $2799 when they get them.
post #85 of 10847
Like I said before, the Sony press release from about a month ago said $2799 and $2299 MSRP for the KDF-E50A10 and KDF-E42A10 respectively. Your guess is as good as mine as to why they're priced less at SonyStyle right now, but you shouldn't be surprised to see prices like these.

read the last paragraph

The sales guy said they should be getting them in the next week or two.
post #87 of 10847
Tweeter in Oak Brook, IL says their warehouse is scheduled to receive them on Aug 12, and that the store would have it a few days later (he estimated Aug 15). The price will be $1999, same as SonyStyle.
post #88 of 10847
ghostee for the 50" ???? I think U mean the 42".
post #89 of 10847
I know the 50" is 46 4/8 across.Does anyone know how far that 46 5/8 extends back?I was wondering if it would fit in my 45 3/4 w entertainment center.I have the depth and i guess it could stick out a couple of inches frontways and 3/4" on the side.Also,on the Iris feature,as i understand it is someting that you have to manually set it is not the dynamic iris i've heard about on their front screen projector.Is this correct? Thanks.

That's probably about 10" too high (or more). These TVs generally have a pretty narrow viewing angle (vertical). You'll see the image above and below the optimal level, but the TV won't look its best. You generally don't see dimming at the top, but rather a diminished look across the entire image.
