    32PW9618 - Best TV in the world ever, till the next one... :D

    Interesting to see DPLII and NTX rear wireless speakers coming as part of a tv set though.

    Hmmm.. and two Digital Audio co-ax inputs, one each for Ext1 and 2.

    According to the French leaflet the tube is our old favourite - the Real Flat Blackline S. Now I wonder if this is the proper Philips version or is in fact still the Panny Quintrix (as per 9617 and 9607). No mention of Cybertube or the new Philips Slim tube.

    :rolleyes: The U.S. and far east already have sets equipped with the HD Cybertube, with Cybertube Slim's launch imminent... seems that they couldn't care less about us :p

    Now that the CRTs are made my L.G. Philips (Headquartered in Hong Kong) my guess is that Eastern markets will always get 1st pick :(

    P.S. noticed they've gone all "Toshiba" in SCART placement and have also introduced PIP.
