It's a little less then that, about 66" to the top I'd guess. Was originally designed for a 65" Philips 9" CRT RTPV. I was measuring very carefully to see if the 70" would fit. I've probably got about 1/2" clearance on each side, although I was ready to remove the clear plastic pieces if necessary.
The 65" had a reasonable border between the edges of the screen and the frame of the front piece. With the Sony 70", the width of the frame is pretty much exactly the width of the screen, so I'm getting some reflection off the sides of the frame. I'll have to do something to cut down the reflectivity, either electricians tape (my wife is not amused) or sand it down a bit to break the glossy finish.
We're sitting about 11-12' back, so the height really hasn't really been a problem, even when I start slouching down later at night!
