I had a good day as I won $4500 at a local Casino bwahaha.
So now I'm thinking I should replace my 2005 56 inch 1080p DLP with a display that will get the most out of the HD-XA2. I have been looking the Toshiba 57LX177 LCD and the Panasonic TH-58PZ700U 1080p Plasma but are there other displays I should be looking at? How about the new Samsung LED engine DLP's are they worth considering?

I have the Samsung HLR5668w which I believe is a 2005 and the HLS series are 2006 models and the new HLT series are for this year. My HDTV is in fact 1080p however it will not accept a 1080p signal via HDMI but the HLS series will.

IMO and with my own eyes I have seen all the latest RP`s setup in the Home Theatre Store and other vendor locations. Of course the vendors & big box stores are either feeding them HD content via broadcast or HD DVD, Blu-Ray players. They definitely dont want to show the consumer SD content which looks pathetic from a selling point.


Between LCOS, DLP, & LCD the Sony SXRD XBR2 60" LCOS is still the clearest unit I have seen being fed with all content. Plus Sony throws in an extra lamp. I have no idea when the XBR3 will be released. I havent had a chance to see the latest JVC LCOS units.


Good Luck with your Decision!

So the LYCOS sets are worth looking at? I don't believe the new Sony XBR3's are out yet. Anyone here running a Sony or JVC LYCOS with a HD DVD player?

I have an ISF calibrated Sony 50XBR1 SXRD native 1080p display (does not accept 1080p) and the XA2 running at 1080i and the picture is fabulous. Even though it does not accept 1080p from my XA2 the the 1080p scaled picture is pristine. I would go check out the XBR2, 1080p input and an extra bulb as stated above is one heck of a deal! I hope they bring back the 50" when they release the XBR3, that could be my next display!

I have no idea what Sony will accomplish or how they will improve over the XBR2 model when they do release the XBR3 but I would not hesitate to purchase the XBR2 now if my last good Sony CRT XBR800 40" 1080i craters. The Sony crt xbr800 40" still outshines any of the rear projection units when it comes to playing SD broadcast content. The crt I have also still projects as good an image in 1080i as the XBR2 RP in 1080i today. I purchased it in Nov. 2002. Not one problem so far knock on wood !


The Hi- tech crt display is unfortunately a thing of the past now since the manufacturers definitely dont want consumers purchasing displays that will last 10 years or more with no servicing or lamp replacements. Of course the largest display you could get was 40" and the thing weighs 310 lbs.


Again IMO I highly suggest you go see the Sony KDS-XBR2 60" at your local CC or another big box store if they still have any setup for display.


Amazon offers it for under 3K with free shipping. And you know their outstanding reputation for returns or replacement within 30 days.
