I agree, I only have 50" available space for a TV in my main room, so this would be a perfect size for me as well!

The new S series is just the same old s series with a built in ATSC tuner as it is now 2006 and such is required.

Im really holding out for a 32 1080p, but I think 40 is as low as sony will go. Like in Japan.

As far as the model number, in Japan it is KDL-46X1000 , not sure if itl stay the same or not.

wow. that Xross Media Bar. is impressive. just like the PSP UI.

Please let us know what TV is going to use that UI in the USA.

Thanks!!!

Samsung also announced two 1080p LCDs in 40" and 46" -- same size as the Sonys. These Samsungs and the Sonys will use the same panels -- made in the joint Sony/Sumsung LCD plant in Korea where they are pumping out 1M+ panels per month.

I have a Sony SDM-P234 24" Sony computer monitor. Took the back off to see the Samsung panel inside there.

Anyone see/ask if PAP (Picture and Picture) available on the new Models.
Will the US Models have the ability to display two (or more) different inputs at the same time.
post #38 of 450
the japan X series has twin view. it might be the same set up as the qualia 005, like HDMI and other HD pictures on the left and anything SD on the right. and it might let you change the size between the pictures, one bigger than the other like the qualia 005

Same here. I was expecting to get some serious info about the 46 XBR but there has been nothing. It's a little disappointing.

Well then maybe you should wait for the Toshiba and Sony TVs with the Cell processor.

The XBR is not listed, but the others are:

Sony...Wake Up! Two HDMI ports minimum...three for XBR. What's wrong with them?
A 46" size is appealing to me but I still think a plasma is in my future.

i cant even find that link going threw the normal menus on the site. the only one listed on the normal menus is the KLV-32U100M for pre-orders. a reason why the X series is not listed on sonystyle is because there is no press release for the tv's

It's stashed on the bottom of the BRAVIA Press Release under "Editor's Note". Very discouraging that no info on the 46" XBR 1080p set, X Series etc. has come out beyond the brief mention in the Sony Press Conference. Surely somebody at CES visited the Sony Booth and saw the set and asked a question. ANYBODY?

It's a shame that information is so difficult to get and when you do it's often confusing. Sony's PR/marketing is pathetic. Do they listen to their customers at all?

The fact that Sony had a CES dedicated website was an improvement over last year. Usually, they just post a press release on their corporate web page. Sony has made some progress, but certainly needs much more improvement. Historically, their PR/Marketing has been very lame in the US. The Japanese website is packed with up to date info and specs. To bad I can't read Japanese and the web translators still have a few problems.

Is the new Bravia S-series 1080p?

No. The S Series is the bottom end of the food chain. The 1080p sets are likely to be based on the current V XBR Series Chasis with the guts of X series (The current 1080p set that is out in Japan.) Beyond a picture posted on Endgaget of the Sony CES Press Conference and generic statement in a Sony VP Speech no one seems to know much more.
post #53 of 450
I think I read that the Bravia XBR response time is 8 msec. Has this been lowered on the 46" in japan, or the samsung 46"?
post #54 of 450
This is ridiculous. You mean Sony couldn't provide any more info on the 46 XBR set? What is Sony thinking?

I could care less about the S series.

I am with you on that one, I was very frusterated by the lack of information, hopefully the guy who posted earlier can get us some good details!

Unfortunatley, Sony's lack of information usually means that we will see this set later rather than sooner.

Unfortunately this and the HD Tivo were the two things I was looking to finally get some good info on from CES and both were totally side stepped by their respective companies, ugh!
post #58 of 450
OK, lemme see if I have this straight (and please correct me if I don't). In the BRAVIA lineup, the V-series XBRs will still be top of the line:

KDL-V46XBR1 (new 1920 x 1080 panel; model number is an assumption)
KDL-V40XBR1
KDL-V32XBR1
KDL-V26XBR1

The new S-Series models will constitute the middle tier:

KDL-46S2000
KDL-40S2000
KDL-32S2000
KDL-26S2000

And the M series (without tuners) would fill out the lineup:

KLV-40U100M
KLV-32U100M

Is this how you guys read it? This opens up lots of opportunity to consider price versus value. First thing I'll wanna know is how the S-seres compares to the XBRs (or, conversely, what makes the V-series better). Apparently the 46XBR will be the only 1080p model, so I get that part, but I'd like to know more about the other three panel sizes.
post #59 of 450
I thought the designation was going to be "KDL 46X1000". Does that correspond with the KDLV46XBR1? Could they make it more confusing?

Seems that you are reading it right. What bothers me is the fact that KDL-46S2000 will retail for 4500... That means 46 inch XBR will be more money and with Sony offering no real discounts to me it seems they will have a very hard time competing with Sharps... If Sharp will be available for thousands less in the same size who will buy Sony's?
