I have more than one telly.
You're alright in Son_of_SJ's books, while I'm the scum of the forum!
Did you buy another TV recently?
Lol. No, not yet. I still have the Sony 46hx803 TV and I bought the Sony 40lx903 from Marks and Spencer for £550. So I have three TVs in total at present! I would like the GT60 too.
I only have one Blu-ray player though.
Main AV Setup: Panasonic 50VT65 TV, Pioneer Bdp-lx71, Pioneer Vsx-lx70, B&W FPM Series, B&W PV1, Optimum AV300 AV Stand, QED Silver Anniversary XT Speaker Cable & Chord Silver Plus HDMI Cables. Gadgets: iPad 4 & iPhone 4S.
Well I have two Blu-ray players and one TV (if you count the PS3 as a BDP).
If you bought the GT60, would you replace one of your current TVs, or take your total to four?
Hardware: Panasonic TX-P50VT65B (calibrated); Cambridge Audio Azur 651BD; Yamaha RX-A810; Teac PD-H600; PS3; B&W 601 & 600LCR (series 3); Q Acoustics QAV (rear)
Furniture and Accessories: BLOK Classix 3000 Oak AV Cabinet; Atacama Nexus 6 (atabite metal filled); 3D3 A1112
Possibly the Sony 46hx803 it would replace. One slight problem is that it is on a Sky link, and I don't think a plasma of this size would perform to well on it! The Pioneer 5090 did not enjoy it too much!
I have two TVs and two blu ray players. Do I win for balance?
HiFi / A/V / Bedroom
I still have a CRT in the spare room, can I count that
Lounge: Panasonic (faulty but 'within specification') 50GT50, Mico DVD-A980 (multi region), Yamaha RX-V596RDS, Mission M74, M7C and M7DS speakers, Sony CDPXE570, Nintendo WIi, Sony PS3, Humax FOXSAT-HDR,
Conservatory: Panasonic 42G20 and DMP-BD45EBK
You've certainly scored the most sensible points. I don't know if that counts as a win. I'd give the decision to Son_of_SJ, to my knowledge the only forum member to relegate a ninth generation Kuro to a second bedroom.
Thats great news for you!!
My 65VT65 was supposed be here yesterday - but for a EDITED up
Now coming tomorrow - exciting times - I will be posting my views on it as soon as I have some to air
Today I started a quiet thread specifically about the Panasonic 65VT65. Could you maybe post your thoughts on your wonderful new telly in that thread. I'm very envious, by the way!

all the best What HiFi home cinema forumites have more than one telly
You're hardly ingratiating yourself with us single TV owners!
Ah, strappped for cash, the thing is that your single Panasonic 50VT65 is more modern and more highly specified and is more highly rated than all my tellies combined! :grin: So you are certainly not the scum of the forum! And frankly, anyone who is insensitive enough to relegate a ninth generation Kuro to the second bedroom should be forced to listen to an old transistor radio for the rest of his life!
That's not a TV, that's an artefact - you should be offering that to the science museum!
Lounge: Panasonic TX-P60ZT65B (calibrated), Pioneer SC-LX75, Denon DPB-2012, Sky-HD1TB, PS4, Xbox 360, Apple-TV, Atacama Equinox AV stand, Monitor Audio Silver RX8, RXC, RX-FX, RXW-12. Kitchen: Pioneer XC-HM81, Monitor Audio Bronze BX2. Bedroom: Samsung UE37D6510, Samsung BD-C5900, Sky-HD, Pioneer N-50, Rotel RC-03 (pre-amp), Rotel RB-9708X (power-amp), Mordaunt-Short MS914
Although I believe it is only temporarily in the second bedroom and is due for promotion at some point in the future.
Can i ask Mr M and Strapped why you chose to buy a plasma now considering OLED is just 'round the corner?
Not having a pop as i know how good the panasonics are
PanasonicTX-P46GT30B..Yamaha RX-A1010...Music Fidelity M3i...OPPO105EU...KEFR100/R200C/3001SE/HTB2SE...SkyHD2TB...QED Copper Speaker Cable /HDMI/Analogue...PS3...IPAD2
I'm not Mr M or strapped.
A financially viable OLED is still few years away. Besides, there are technological constraints which OLED has to overcome.

Thanks for responding BB,so when would you anticipate OLED to be the mainstream reference sets?
I'm not planning on changing my 2yr oled plasma for a good 5yrs
Already dreaming of OLED, eh?
You shoud be ok with your timeframe. I would expect OLED to become mainstream in the next 3-4 years. I usually prefer buying 2nd or 3rd generation sets of a new technology, to allow the manufacturers to iron out any problems that crop up in the first generation.
You are correct Sir, the Pioneer LX5090 will be promoted to my own bedroom as soon as I get enough money to buy a Panasonic 65VT65.
