Ever wonder what a $130K VIZIO Ultra HDTV looks like? Now we know.

Today, VIZIO announced pricing on its new Reference Series High Dynamic Range Televisions. This line-up includes Dolby Vision playback technology and a localized dimming LED backlight system with 384 zones which delivers precise control of colors throughout the entire display.
The Reference Series has built-in 5.1 audio with a low-end that hits 20Hz and it can pump out 102dB of sound. It ships with satellite speakers and a wireless subwoofer. Additionally, it has 802.11ac dual-band Wi-Fi, future-ready HDMI inputs and smart functionality.
It’s basically 4K video on steroids, particularly the brightness and clarity. There is only a handful of titles that are currently available in this format and VIZIO is including access to VUDU’s Warner Brothers collection with each purchase.
But we doubt that collection of movies is going to offset the sticker price of these new models. The 65-inch model will carry a $5,999 price tag, while the gargantuan 120-inch VIZIO will go for an astounding $129,999. Both models are available as “special orders” today.
I think we’ll be sticking to VIZIO’s popular M-Series line of 4K Ultra HDTVs.
