I also found out Sharp makes the new ELITE TV's at twice the price of their Aquos line. Pioneer used to make ELITE, but gave it up, so now Sharp is doing it.

I found this out while visiting Best Buy to compare prices. I saw this $7200.00 70" LED TV, and I noticed it had the exact same base/stand that the SHARP had. I was like WTF? So I came home and researched it online. SHARP makes ELITE brand, and the only benefit I could really find was that it was made at some master shop in Japan. Big deal! I guess there really is a SUCKER born every minute!!!!

It's like those "Monster" brand cables that Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc all sell for like $80.00. A lot of overly thick, pretty, over-marketed BULLSHIT. I spoke to several people in the A/V and a friend who works as a recording engineer in a sound studio in Boston. They get their cables from the same place I do, monoprice.com. I got (2) 6'-0"Long HDMI cables with gold ends, ferrior cores, etc for $3.75 each, for a grand total of $12.00 shipped to my door. Been doing monoprice.com for years for all of my A/V cable needs.

Just passing on the good word about them.....anyone who shops or buys those Monster brand or similar cables is just flushing money down the drain. Total BS.
