    Have anyone read about or seen these TV:s? I´ve seen that the prices on the KV32FX65, which I had planned to buy, have dropped the last weeks. The LS65 should have picture-in-picture, digital comb filter and a remote capable of managing DVD and VCR from other manufacturers as well. Sounds really good, have not seen a price yet, though. Has anyone?

    Have Found The sony Kv32ls60 on a scandinavian website. The picture it shows is of the ls35 range so i dont know if it is the right one. If it is it is a shame, it would be nice to see a new design from sony!!:) :) :)

    Have anyone seen/heard anything about the LS65?
    Description is on Sonys swedish website, http://www.sony.se/products.asp
    The interesting part is in my first post in case you find the language difficult.

    Sony ls 65 sounds good. But i would really like it to look different than the ls35. If you get any pics of what it looks like post the link on the forum. was going to buy a fx65 this weekend, but i think i will wait now.

    Just got an email from Sony about the LS65. It is scheduled for release this summer (May). The recommended price will be 17.000 SEK or about £1150.
    Hmm, ordered a FX65 for £850 a few weeks ago and will receive it in a days time. If I´m not completely satisfied they´ll get it back and I´ll wait for the LS65.

    The KV28-LS60 is available in the UK now. Saw it at John Lewis last week. £895 I think. Not sure if they had the 32" though.

    The thing which concerns me is that I was told in the store that this set cannot be switched to 50Hz. I had one (well two actually) of the dreaded KV28-FQ75 sets - finally returned for a refund. Problems with bars as mentioned elsewhere, but also the smearing of any fast motion at 100Hz was awful. I had it running permanently at 50Hz.

    I would take some convincing that a SONY which only runs at 100Hz is a good idea. Any one any experience of other SONYs at 100HZ?

    Hmm, I live in Sweden and, actually I just calculated from SEK to £. The last week there have been price drops on the FX65 for about £75, maybe the FX65 will be replaced by the LS65 in May.
    Check www.mistersuper.com for the FX65 at £791 and £65 in shipping.

    Does anybody know the exact specs for these new sets? And do you know if there is a replacement for the FQ75 on the horizon?

    Mark.

    Fq75 has been replaced by the 32dx100 with digital tuner built in.
    About £1400 if you shop around and so far no complaints about scrolling bars!!!!!!

    Just got the new Sony Catalog. As Archer previously commented, the model is called KV32-FX66 not LS65.

    The differences from FX65 is that the FX66 has:
    +
    Digital comb filter
    Picture in picture (1 tuner)
    2 RGB
    Auto Noise Reduction
    Picture freeze
    Virtual Dolby (Audio)
    BBE (Audio)

    -
    Only 100Hz digital+ (Not advanced)
    No graphic equalizer (Audio)
    No parental lock (guess everyone will miss that)
    No Text 2.5 and Text menu
    Only 250 Text pages

    Maybe I should have waited for the FX66 instead of buying the FX65. Ah, nevermind. Guess the price tag will be a bit higher, anyway. What do you think of this?

    Message for Chrbjo.

    I've been trying to get hold of a new Sony Catalogue. Is there a UK email address/snail mail address that I can get request one?

    Cheers - Mojo

    For Mojo Jojo:
    Try some of the contact or support links on the Sony UK site and ask for it. Some weeks ago I asked the swedish Sony site about the specs for the LS65 and I got a reply with some specs and they offered to send me the catalog as soon as it was printed.

    I spoke to Sony TV customer service.
    Basically i wanted to know from them if any Sony TV supports 2 RGB Scarts!!
    They said LS60/65 is one and the other one is 32FX66.
    They said FX66 will be released in 1st week of July.
    So i will wait for it, because it has advanced scan, digi+ etc.

    Another option i closely considered was panasonic TX32PH40. It has similar specs to that of 32FX66. The only problem with TX32PH40 is that its more pricey than its meant to be. I was expecting PH40 to be at least 100GBP cheaper that 32PB50. But its priced the same as PB50!!!!STRANGE!!!! . PB50 is a higher model with DTS and Dolby + extra speakers. I cant make sense why these two are being sold at the same price.
