    Generally, anywhere from the very late summer/early fall and on through the end of the year. Mostly right about now. Depends on the manufacturer.

    They should be coming out soon, so get ready for close out sales on older models. Try and snag a 40XBR800 when it hits closeout time.

    They usually start with the highend and work their way down.

    Right now the newest badass from Sony is the 34XBR910.

    Wait, are you talking about wall unit type EC or a free-standing one?

    If it's the latter, couldn't you just let the extra width hang off the side?

    So it's a wall unit then, but I guess the TV actually sits on its own stand(?). By free-standing, I meant one that doesn't come w/ any cabinets, etc. that surround the TV area, but just have cabinets/shelf space underneath, which I wouldn't really consider an EC as much as a stand.

    When I said "most ECs that would restrict TV width", I was talking about the old style ones that don't come w/ a separate stand for the TV. They are usually not designed to support 300lb TVs me thinks. I'm not sure about the 34XBR910, but if it's top-of-line Sony, it's probably in that ballpark.

    PS: I stand corrected about the weight thing. Apparently, current Sony XBRs are not quite that heavy, except for the monstrous 40" one. The 34XBR910 is "only" ~200lb.
