I was really hoping to get there this year but for family reasons, I don't fee I can make it.

Which brings me to:
I hope you're going to live stream this year. If I can't get there in body, I would love to watch live with a hot pizza sitting on my lap.

Unfortunately, I cannot attend this year either. I need more notice at this time of the year because of my coaching responsibilities. That being said, I look forward to seeing the results! Will it be streamed this year Robert?

Check out this new video I just uploaded on my YouTube Channel about Sony's master Series TVs.

It came from our Sony dealer portal and was just added yesterday. Although it's a promotional video it explains Sony's planning and position on the new Master Series TVs.

I just sent you an e-mail regarding 85" sets for a neighbor. Then I saw your post.

I left a message for my neighbor to give me a call. I want him to get the 75 Z9D vs any 85"

I hope he calls me before they are all gone.

That's correct that Sony's 75Z9D is among the best LCD TVs ever made. However, assuming you select the right 82-85" size can trump the better picture quality of any 75" TV. Depends on the viewing distance and some personal preferences.

I'll reply to your email.

That is exactly what I told my neighbor.

I'd rather have the 75 Z9D vs an 85X900F

He told me he would rather have an 85".
