Beautiful picture, flexible inputs/outputs, styling.
So far, only shortfall is to get line audio out, you need to turn off the in-set speakers. I haven’t check whether audio is passed full time from the optical audio out.
This 50″ plasma screen was released October 04. It is going to be replaced in a few months, so there are some great prices being offered lately. I bought it at Vanns.com, a reputable company I have dealt with over the last 15 years.
