In any case I guess we have to wait for a spec sheet as detailed as the ones uploaded for the 57" & 65" where they state the number of colors in the wheel (as well as other info). Bummer if their flagship doesn't have the best technology, especially at the premium they charge for that size.
Edit: So I see now on the web site in the gallery on the 65831 the panel showing the "6 primary color system", this panel isn't on the 73". So looks pretty clear - 3 color wheel. Now they just need to learn there are only 3 primary colors (and come up with a different name for this), and lower the price on the 73".
COMMENT: "Teach" I think you have a lot of good input for this web site (technical and otherwise), but I feel that extended price discussions don't belong in this thread. It's kind of like going off on power conditioners within a discussion on a particular TV. But - there is obviously a lot of interest in "the art of the deal" and particularly how it applies to buying TV's or other home theater equipment. So, maybe it would be more acceptable to everyone in a separate thread, you would also attract others who might never read the Mits thread. I'm not suggesting the site's rules would be any different, but it would be more on topic. Just one man's opinion ...
