The difference in sound affect was probably more likely due to the 4" rise and tilt than the screen size and borders. It would have been interesting to take out the tilt and see what changed. I think you are confusing the soap opera effect with something else. It is purely a video effect caused when motion correction makes the picture frames look [too] smooth making movies (film) look like soap operas (video).
Just curious, what was your and your wife's initial take on the differences between the two TV's pictures when watching your first couple of movies?
I should have known that I was getting some soap opera effect in the video, but this causes the sound synching in the film to lose its visual punctuation which in turn causes the sound to resemble the direct recording from video in early soaps. Doing a little research I found that I'm not the only audiophile who notices soap opera effect from its audio effects first. Maybe we should call it audiophile synesthesia? Anyway, thanks for the clue as it turned out that I was fighting with two distinct audio degradations, only one of which had a direct acoustic cause.
It's just the way the TV sits on the cheap fixed mount. Anyway, it is better for viewing.
My wife only watched one movie - "The Year of Living Dangerously" - which is a problematic DVD, but a great movie. She thought it looked better than ever, even though I resisted tweaking it with some noise reduction.
