Yes, you're right. I was referring to the soundbar beneath the TV... sorry my photo didn't show it up very well.

RE: My Panasonic 50VT65 THX Calibrated

I saw the Samsung 65-inch again today in John Lewis, it is really good and I suppose only let down by black levels, which is a shame.

RE: My Panasonic 50VT65 THX Calibrated

Yes, the Samsung UE65HU8500 is quite fabulous. Obviously its black level won't compare to a Panasonic plasma, but for an LED LCD, especially a curved one, it's actually decent.

Talking about Panasonic plasma, here's a 50VT65 I calibrated over the weekend:

Panasonic VT65

The living room was sunlit and very bright, so I used [Panel Luminance] "High" to get 190 cd/m2 out of the panel! Dance 4

190 cd/m2 I calculated that to 55 Ftl - is that correct?

Yes, that's correct. Obviously this is from a windowed pattern rather than full-field. If a plasma can do even 120 cd/m2 full-field I'd like to see it! ROFL
