The 55-inch D55-E0 and the 65-inch D65-E0 reviewed here are the most well-featured of the series, with 4K resolution (found on only a couple of others in the series; the rest are 720p or 1080p) and local dimming. 4K doesn’t really affect image quality much, but dimming really helps, especially in demanding home theater situations.”
“With the bleak winter setting, the X12000 produced a very natural picture with an excellent sense of depth. While the picture was loaded with detail, it never looked contrived or artificial.
The X12000’s excellent greyscale performance meant it perfectly rendered the dark wood of the trees and the mountain stone without free of any unwelcome colour intrusion.”
“Is the Cadence worth $1,299 as a standalone soundbar? Yes. Should you also get the wireless sub? Yes, unequivocally. If budgetary requirements force you to opt out of one element, I’d say to get the Cadence and Dynamo sub now, then save for the Bravado surrounds. The complete system performs exceedingly well and has a bleeding-edge feature set, and thus it is priced appropriately. Yes, $3,100 is a lot of money and can buy you a lot of things. But in my opinion, this is a high-end product that is well engineered and performs exceedingly well. It’s a no-brainer for someone who wants to take their home theater to the next level without adding the hassle of a dedicated surround sound system. The bottom line is that this is an epic, game-changing home theater solution that’s simple to set up, will play back just about anything you want, and will do so brilliantly.
