    Hello.

    I'm about to buy a Sony KP51HW40 (Widescreen 51") and i was wondering about a good distance that i should leave between the TV and the couch...

    From your experiances, is there an optimum distance?

    Thanks

    Greetings

    Optimal is about 7 to 8 feet. (1 to 3 times the picture height for HD / line doubled material).

    Any further back is okay, but the ability to decern detail goes down.

    Regards
