I'm in the same boat, (except, fortunately for me, not coming from something as nice as a KURO) sadly the pickings are slim. There are a few 2014 possibilities, but none are for sale yet. Unless you want to get an edge-lit LCD, or spend over $10k. Hopefully there's something I'm missing here.
Here is a short list of what is available in 2014 in 1080P that I'm considering.
UN75H7150 - $4000 - 3D
UN75H6350 - $3300 - no 3D?
Not sure what the main differences are between these two models.
LC-80UQ17U - $5497 (the 1k/4k hybrid)
LC-80LE650U - $3300
KDL-70W850B - $2600
70LB7100 - $2800
M702i - $1900
M801i - $3300
I know the Sony is available mid-March. I think the Samsung, Sharp, and LG models are March/April. The rumors on the Vizio models say May for their M series. As much as I want to see how nice a Vizio FALD panel looks like, I don't think I can wait that long.
