Default Viewing distance for TV viewing?

I'm buying a new condo and I'm looking to upgrade from my 46inch Sony LCD. The distance from my couch to where the TV will be is about 14-14.5 feet. I've been doing some research but would also like to hear the opinions of fellow Community members. What size would be best for this distance? Also is there a good web site that has this info? I've looked at a few and there appears to be some difference of opinion. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks all.

For a viewing distance of 15', the minimum I would recommend is 92". Something like 128" would be more suitable, imo.
