The sort of detail you refer to that the Marantz could reveal and the Hitachi couldn't is very dependent on gamma setting, contrast level and type of input connections. My experience with the SX5500W is that RGB provides the best detail (haven't tried DVI) but not necessarily the most satisfying overall result. However, although I haven't seen the Sharp or Marantz, I would still tend to assume that a significantly higher CR must count for something. There would have to be some aspect of picture quality that would be better.

I've only seen the Sharp no one around here has a Hitachi on display. On paper they both seem to have the same resolution but the Sharp has about half the brightness and about twice the contrast. Has anyone seen both and can offer a comparison?

I don't suppose that you remember which scene that lamp was in?
"The best example was in Dark City during a scene with a hanging incandescent lamp."
