Nice pics, probably a stupid question but how did you post them in the thread?
Ah cheers! I uploaded them to Flickr.com, then I copy and paste them in. In Flickr click on the image, and then select the size of it, I select the 500 one. Get stuck, just shout.
Thanks again for the tip Gel, lets see if I can get this to work - what should appear is some 'before' and 'after' shots of the AV rack, with the 50" Kuro and then the 60" ZT (which I've posted to show why I had concerns about a 65" being too big for the available space).

Wow! That looks great! Cheers for uploading the pictures.

There's certainly no risk of not noticing the TV when you walk in the room!
And I worry about my neighbours! Look at those speakers
love the tv as well, looks cracking. Out of interest how far do you sit from your tv?

so jealous mr malarky, i've had my 46" for five years i reckon another five years then i'm going big, i'm thinking 60".

They do make some noise when they're asked to.
Have attached a pic of the rears for completeness (excuse the chintsy cat - girlfriend - and the iffy shelves - rented house).
Sofa is about 8-9 feet away from the screen - really need a larger lounge, size of the lounge was the one compromise we made when we moved into our current place.
Thanks very much,
I found the 10" increase from the Kuro really noticeable, so if you're currently running a 46" you might find a 55" is enough to really give some extra impact and the VT55 looks a really good bet, but who knows what will be on the market in a few years time - you coudl be looking at an affordable OLED by then!
cheers, I would have thought that to close for a 60" but I can see you are really happy with it and size obviously isn't an issue when watching. That gives me some thinking for a 55" possibly
I sit 8 feet from a 65" mate, it felt too close for the first day.
Now just feels normal, it's reco you sit 8 feet from a 65" to get full benefit of 1080p

You do get used to it pretty quickly. Sitting that far away has the potential to be quite unforgiving in terms of picture quality but it seems to hold up, HD material in particular is pretty flawless even at that distance (SD material, especially the likes of older shows on UK gold, obviously suffer in comparison though even then I'd have to say I'm hugely impressed by its upscaling ability with SD, one area where there's a notable improvement on the Kuro to my eye).
What you do get at that distance is definite impact and immersion, plus the scale of sound coming out the amp/speakers now seems to match the scale of the image more closely (appreciate that's a hugely subjective observation).
Any chance seeing some pictures with the screen on? Cheers. Just found some in another forum too:
Perhaps a bit closer than these, and some with black levels in? Cheers.
Got some of the ST60 here:
Cheers chaps. At 8-10 feet I'm more worried about field of vision and being able to see and take in all the tv. Kinda like the difference at the cinema from the front seats to the backs. Do you find that an issue ok, can you see and watch all the screen ok? Ta
Was going to wait till I'll had it calibrated before posting pics, will have a go later but keep in mind its pre-calibration (and their only taken on an i-phone).
