I have bias lighting behind my Sony LED
I also have bias lighting behind my real TV ( Sammie plasma )
I'm running about 5000 K on my bias lights ......... I know it's supposed to be 6500K but in my rooms
light creamy beige color (if I described it right ) 5000K works for *my preferences* I tried both
not a big difference in my rooms anyway or maybe I'm going blind
I haven't thought about the mask thing here but on 2: 35: 1 movies especially in bright scenes on LCD I can certainly see it you need some black
I'm mixed on the bias lights sometimes I like them sometimes not so much but I can see the merit there. .
and I use mine as much as not all in all I think most of us should at least try it can be pretty cool .
I would never discourage anyone from trying them in fact I think they should they can be useful .
Further would recommend both Plasma and LCD owners try them they can be cool!
they are probably even more useful with LCD's
I'll be looking forward to Marks discussion on lighting I'm sure I will learn a thing or two
We maybe should cut loopthrough a little slack with him being new and all he's been doing alright over in the LCD
forum . ( I got something working over there for him anyway )☺ all in good fun though not like the other thing .
I don't know if he would like the darkside (plasma forum ) just yet though ☺ .
I think loopthrough is an LCD guy thats OK long as they don't hate on plasma .
You all know how it is with plasmas if you know you know if you don't you don't
loopthrough though opinionated seems seems to know a lot for a newbie or even a not so newbie I think he's been around some TV's I think he will fit in fine !
reasonably credible so far not like YOU KNOW WHO I don't think we have to worry about that with loopthrough.
