what's the point, either way? It serves no purpose but to show off the pedestal and wires. They are sacrificing performance by downsizing the speakers for this fluff. You can hear the same speaker setup on the samsungs... try cranking up the volume and you'll see what i mean.
Sony design has been trying to keep the floating glass effect alive, but after its original introduction in that 50" plasma many years ago, I think it's gone completely downhill.
"Make sure there's some 'float' in it!!" demands sony marketing. "It needs more 'float'!!"
