    more untrue rumors. Its Panasonic's best line and Samsung believes in plasma also. You're like SAR Lite: almost as uninformed, but not nearly as annoying.

    Rumors? Sure

    But I definitely wouldn't just dismiss them.

    It's going to take 4-5 years before they become affordable.

    So in the meantime, I prefer LCD to plasma.
    Preferences are fine. We all have them and you really cannot go wrong with Plasma or LCD nowadays but let's just not pretend that LCDs having better pictures than Plasmas is established as fact in the eyes of the experts because that one still is up for grabs. If anything the Plasma display snobs are currently having the better of that argument over the LCD picture snobs at least for the time being.

    Besides you will need alot of supporting to the wall to support a large Plasma panel and the amount of heat thrown off from Plasma in an enclosed media room can throw temps in the room off by many degrees from the front of the room to the back.

    With the new LED tv's I would not even look at Plasma, it does not exist.
    Good point about the weight!

    If you're hanging a 60" plasma you better damn well make sure you're hitting 2 studs, 3 preferably and don't get some cheap mount.

    Especially if you have kids!

    I'm going to be gutting the room and building the theatre around it. So answer really is ... I will be sitting at the best viewing distance. Equipment budget for the room is around $15K -20K

    I already have a great DLNA server (Synology). I am thinking about upgrading my NAD receiver to a more current model .. Mine is easily 10 yrs old.

    Need some advice...I recently relocated from NJ to CA and had to leave most of our furniture at home (long story) so we need a TV. I bought a 55 inch, top of the line Samsung LED back in 2009 for top dollar, I was young, single and had nothing else to do with my money. The TV was great and it still is (my dad will be inheriting it soon). So, we need a new TV for our new place in CA.

    We are looking at the:

    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN55F6...pr_product_top

    or the

    http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN55F7...pr_product_top


    Basically it is the 6 series vs. the 7 series for our options.

    What do you think? Any experts willing to help out and make some claims on 120Hz vs 240Hz? Anyone see the difference or seen both TVs or similar side to side? Any experience with 120 vs 240 Hz? Thoughts on the difference while watching sports?

    Also, viewing distance. Our viewing distance is going to be a little less this time in a smaller room. Is a 55" TV too big for a viewing distance of about 7.5-8 feet? Thanks

    Get the 7100 if you planning on hanging on the wall - about 1 inch thick.

    It looks like both choices include their new "Touch" remote. This remote works through the wall so you have a lot of options on where to place you set top boxes.

    Look for the 7050 at your local Costco. I think it's the 7100 with 4 pairs of 3D glasses and a wireless keyboard.

    I would look at the 60" instead of the 55" if you have the wall space. The TV actually looks smaller because of the small bezel.

    The 7100 (7050) have have the Clear Motion Rate 720 which is nice.

    Anybody pull the trigger on a 4K TV yet? Could use some advice. I have a 5 year old Panasonic Plasma that still works fine but I am in need of a second TV now.

    Was thinking about these Sony's. Price just dropped and has great reviews on Amazon and Best Buy.

    But, as for LED... Samsung Series 8 are the SIHT!
    I've been in the A/V industry for a long time. Dedicated Theater rooms, whole house home automation, custom systems, etc etc.

    I've seen and installed nearly every brand and type out there.

    IMO Samsung makes the nicest displays picture wise out there.
    They new "Smart TV" feature is also pretty cool, and actually useful!
    Kinda like having an Apple TV built into the tv, just need an internet connection for netflix, hbo-go, etc.

    Also, I'm pretty sure you can get an 80" in your budget of 4G.

    Thing that makes these Samsung panels so good is the superior black levels.
    I haven't seen a better picture IMO.

    And NO, I do not work for Samsung
    Everybody said what there is to say about Panasonic Plasma. They're nice.
    I'd go with a Samsung LED if it were me tho.
    Very good analysis there. That expert opinion has really helped me in preparing for my new den im looking to build.

    One quick question however; when your installing and testing your AV setup, how far are you sitting from the TV?

    Thanks
    Danny

    I wouldn't remote touch a 4K TV yet. It's a new technology and there's no native 4K content to be played on it as of yet unless you're willing to attach a terabyte hard drive to the TV and play content off of there for a while. Yeah, you'll get an upsampled 1090P picture but why not wait for a little while until the prices come down further and they start pushing them even harder as the next new thing, maybe say around Super Bowl time?
