    Sony 65" OLED

    Stopped in Best Buy today to buy a Terk antenna. Took a peek at the Sony 65" OLED. Stunning! Put me on the list for the 2018 model....

    Just an FYI for those whom may care. LG makes the display panels for the Sony OLED TVs. Some people prefer Sony's software and other features but they are generally more expensive than an LG.

    It's not just software and features which differentiates the Sony OLED sets from LG's which use the same panels, but Sony's video processing expertise which results in what many find to deliver superior picture quality. There's much more to a video display than the panel alone, just as with DACs the use of a particular chip does not entirely determine its ultimate sound quality.

    Re: Sony 65" OLED

    I own the 65" Sony A1E OLED (since May) and another thing I really like is that it's screen is the speakers, yet the sound quality is pretty good including the bass. so it's simple and elegant and no hanging sound bar or stuff to deal with. love the picture. been flawless. not the cheapest. but highly recommended.

    my previous 1080p 60" Panasonic (top-of-line 4-5 years ago) had a sound bar I added, and the sound failed. I could not diagnose it so gave it away. never liked that sound bar hanging down. I only use this TV for sports mostly football and the occasional 4k video.

    I have a separate dedicated 2 channel room, and a separate 7.1 FP4K HT room in the house.

    Mike is right on, the screen speakers are damn good and the woofer box/stand works. No sound bar to deal with.....when the 77" comes down to a reasonable price, I'm in.....

    Re: Sony 65" OLED

    I'm contemplating a TV upgrade and the Sony A1 OLED is on my shortlist. In my case I use a Lumagen Radiance Pro video processor, so I assume that somewhat levels the playing field between the Sony and LG: no need to pay for the better software in the Sony, right? Is there a setting in these displays that bypass internal video processing, because the Lumagen will be doing all that.

    The 2018 models have been announced. The AF8 series. No more easel stand. A traditional stand, which makes wall mounting far easier. A lot of additional upgrades also.

    I’ll wait for the 75 inch to drop in price.
