9527 is newer. They are identical in spec. apart from 9617 has Dolby Digital, 9527 only Dolby Surround.

9617 (32") is fitted with a Panasonic Quintrix F Tube and 28" with either Quintrix F or Philips Cybertube. 9527 - all sizes can have either a Quintrix F Tube or a Philips Cybertube.

one happy 32" 9617 (Quintrix F) owner here :D

Thanks for your reply.I have a amp thats gives me dolby digital and dts so i'm guessing if the picture on both are the same then the 9725 is the better bet for me then??.Was looking at the Panasonic TX-32PB50.Which would you think is better??

Doesn't the 9617 have pixel plus and the other doesn't?

matrixsc,

Yeah, as you have a separates system I'd go for the 9527.

I'd avoid the Panasonic PB50 as
1. Many have reported problems with it like buzzing. and

2. it has built in DD and dts which would be a waste for you!

Pixel+ really is pretty amazing... just see it for yourself!
