Thumbs up Re: Sony KDS-R70XBR2 70-inch SXRD HDTV

Hello Ken,

Thanks for the welcome message! I agree with the 1080p looking stunning. When I'm watching Blu-Ray or viewing PS3 1080p games it just blows away the competition. As I write this I'm watching Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) on RAVE HD (VOOM) It's in 1080i & it's really incredible on the 70' LCoS SXRD.

My audio setup is 5.1 Sony Dream Theater. I bought this because it has SACD capability. I play the multichannel dark side of the moon SACD when I want to show people what there missing (compared to regular 2 track 44.1 KHz audio)

Back to the Sony SXRD. I'm hoping that if we ever go to MPEG-4 AVC Compression, we'll all be getting 1080p through the cable..right now at MPEG-2 it's a bandwidth issue..(19.39 Mbit/s vs 38.8 Mbit/s)

Regards,
Tom F
