Hello all and here we go again! Looking for information/substantiation of the claim below. I found it somewhere and lost the bookmark. Any information appreciated but **IF** this is true then good news for those of us interested in the 4:3 sets. Still wondering why the manufacturers are so secretive about new models? Thanks!!! If you can wait a few months, Toshiba will have a 53" set in September (53HX71). Upgrades include new CRTs, new lenses, an auto-convergence system and vertical compression for any input type (anamorphic DVD support). These additions make it pretty much identical, feature wise, to the Sony.
