Most sets now are shipping with hardware contrast ratios 1200:1 or more. I'm not saying to judge a set entirely on the numbers, but it just stood out to me.

How much $$? [Did it cost]

RRP is $8499.99 but I can get one for $6999.00 if I pay cash.

Thanks for the input, back to the research for me.

I hit the stores last night and ended up getting one of these,

Sony KS60R200A 60-inch SXRD BRAVIA

It gets delivered Saturday morning. :D

Next step is to replace my aging home theatre setup.

This new Sony I got rocks :D The XBOX360 games never looked so good.

With my home theatre upgrade I'm looking at a Linn system, a Unidisk SC and Linn 5 Channel poer amplifier and then sort out some speakers to go with it.

Back to the shops again this weekend.
