Does anyone still manufacture 46" sets? That's the biggest my cabinet can accommodate. Any chance that a manufacture will come out with this size soon??

I've done this search already, and only found 46" sets from several years ago. None from 2017- most from at least 4 years ago. I am trying to find out whether this size is being discontinued by every manufacturer. I've check numerous websites and a bunch of stores.

I was hoping that someone at CNET would have some idea about whether these are still be produced.

I can almost explain this.

The LCD panels are made with multi-million dollar machines. So it's not that you can tell them to make certain sizes. You can but the panel makers want to run the machine for long periods to recoup investments. So if the big money is in other sizes, they run those and specific sizes may go away.

Now my search does find stock in the sizes so there's that but I don't work at the companies like Sony, etc but know about LCD manufacturing because I'm a designer and had to explain to the bosses why we would use this size panel. "But I want it .6 inches bigger or smaller."

Does it matter if it's still in production?
