    Someone rang a store and they said not a pricing error, just once off deal. Plus some people are ringing stores and still getting it for that price ; )

    Just posted over in the OzB thread...

    So certainly if you really really want this it's possible to get it for that price.

    Luckily you will get earc. Well that's if you have other gear that also supports earc

    Is it worth getting a 65" LG B9 from JBHIFI for $2795 or are there any other better options people have found? The C9 costs like $1700 more and doesnt seem to be a huge upgrade?

    If you like audio and have decent gear big sound difference compared to optical which is lossy

    I've got a reasonable set up, it's not great but it's ok. I'm not a huge audiophile, but if I can squeeze out some extra for nothing then I'll do that.

    Probably some sort of new purchasers bias but I'm finding the screen just that little bit better on the C9 than my previous C7. I have kept the same settings on the c9 as I did with the previous model.

    Bingo mate. I'm sure a lot of these features could easily be supported by current gen. Yet of course they intentionally block upgrades for certain models and make you upgrade your tv to take advantage of newer features.

    Business 101 I guess.
