Wall mounting makes a huge difference because of the resonance added by studs and drywall.

Now, does it compare to a Bose 5.1 system at five times the cost? No. But it can be a very effective and elegant solution.
Are there still people out there that actually buy into Bose's overpriced racket? There is so much better stuff out there at better prices.

Bose, the Monster Cable of audio.

Yeah, there are plenty.

We have some friends recently put in a Bose 5.1 system in the great room of their home and paid a shit ton for it and installation.

It's a huge room, probably 30x40x15 foot, at least, but I have to admit, the system sounds incredible. The satellite speakers are very inconspicuous, which is a nice.

Some of their lines are definitely good quality, no doubt, but with all the money they spend on marketing and advertising the consumer ends up paying double for a similar product sold by other high end audio producers.

Isn't there like a hundred Sharp Aquos?

I've read that some LCD's now have smart dimming for better blacks.

My parents TV has that. It adjusts based on the amount of light in the room.

Yeah, my Sharp Aquos has that feature. I turned it off, actually, because it's annoying in my room due to so many windows and changing light. I'm sure it's great in a room with less windows.

And yes, Sharp has many different models. As an owner of three Aquos LCD's, I think they're great TV's but I wouldn't hesitate for a second to replace them with Vizio LED's.

One more thing: With any of these new LCD's and LED TV's, you have to manually go into the Menu and settings to turn off "True Motion" or "Fine Motion" or whatever each manufacturer is calling it. Otherwise, the TV makes every program look like a soap opera and you lose the cinematic experience.

It's rather "jerky" as well. I can't understand why it's the default setting. It blows.

Damnit, THAT'S what it is. Every time I'm at my parents house, I'm sitting there watching TV going "WTF is different with your picture?"

Also, your recommendation for say a 50-60 inch would be a Vizio LED?

I like the true moron for some sporting events, but it blows for movies or regular programming.

Well, if you're on a budget, for sure. And once again, nothing beats Costco's Concierge service.

Personally, I think that all of these TV's look great when they're set up at home. I've never gone from room to room in my house and thought "Wow, this TV looks like shit!" It's usually "Goddamn, that's awesome!".

I have a 50" Samsung Plasma and a 50" LG LED LCD and like them both, but picture quality there is no comparison. The Plasma is hands down the best picture quality.
