Has anyone seen this display yet? It looks like they added another component input (total of 2 now) and a built-in tuner but I'm not sure what other changes were made compared to the KP-65XBR10W. Is the picture any better? Has DRC been improved?


Can anyone fill us in?

It also has a Digital output for Dolby Digital 5.1 (if you have a receiver w/the DD decoder built-in).


I`m looking into Sony`s new HW40 line of 16:9 sets (51" and 57"). The specs indicate that the PQ of these sets should be very close to the much higher priced 16:9 XBR2`s.

I guess the digital sound output is necessary since the tuner is in the set. I'm going to use satellite, so the tuner and the dolby digital decoder don't do me any good. If the HW40 monitors have similar PQ, that may be a better value for those of us that already have tuners and DD decoders in their STB's or AV receivers.

I also noticed (by looking at the Crutchfield) that this set has two iLink (Firewire) inputs. The HW series don't appear to have Firewire.
