It'a a pity it'll do nothing to improve the quality of the programmes!

Amen to that. I never watch tv these days!

I think the tv licence should be a pay as you go, so if you dont watch tv you dont have to pay the licence fee.

None of them are true 4k. Its just under 4 million pixels. But even less programs support it anyway. Maybe PC gaming and a few netflix programs . Not much else. 3840 pixels to be exact.

Those of you buying these for your consoles , just be aware that the Ps4 and Xbone barely even handle 1080 . The image does get some upscaling but its no way 4k. You'd need a top spec PC GFX card to support that.

I had bought this TV from RGB direct before xmas and its a stunner! Great interface. Cool little Wiimote style control and the picture is crisp , blacks as black as the ace of spades. You wouldn't regret it.

bit misleading as this isn't really a 4k tv. it's something to do with the way LG arrange their RGB elements of their sub-pixels (user RGBW rather than RGB) and this end up with there being about half the addressable pixel of a true 4k tv.
this article explains more: 4k or faux-K
anyway was looking as need to update soon as my current LG is finally giving up, don't upgrade very often so wanted to be sure of a good buy not just a cheap price.
So how do you know if a particular model of 4K TV is a faux K TV?

BUT, if I were paying £2k, in 2016, I'd expect OLED. No ifs. No buts.
LCD tech isn't good enough to ask a customer to pay £2k for.
Ive voted cold, because I can buy a slightly smaller OLED TV, for the same price.
The largest OLED you can get for around £2k is 55". That has about half the screen area of this 75" set.
Prices tend to go up exponentially with screen size.
A 77" OLED would cost you between £20 and £25k. (Although this years model may be as low as £10k.)

I bought this for slightly more from richer sounds back in Nov and I find the picture great when using 1080p, Sky HD is also fine and doesnt look over processed like on some 4k TVs. Don't listen to the naysayers about needing 4k, standard def obviously isn't great at this size and I made my decision based on the lack of 4k content. Just be extra sure you have the space for it!

RXP91
high end £10k JVC projectors are 1080p and people beam them onto 150 inch screens. barely any content even has 4k details and nothing has HDR. every big tv thread has a bunch of ignorance. My JVC beams onto a 120 inch and I sit 8 feet away
High end JVC projectors pretend to do 4k with their "e-shift" stuff. Regardless, modern 4k teles are surprisingly good at upscaling, although in my limited experience of ludicrously big screens the Samsungs appear to have got this down better than Sony has.
Granted the 4k model appears to be about 5 grand at most retailers. So if you really must have a massive TV this might be an ok deal.

I'm sure BMW's had no radio as standard in those days. They were optional extras.

Most likely dealer fitted too.

...at least with the 6 year warranty you have peace of mind that your bargain basement TV will work for a very long time.
Er, no. With a 6 year warranty you have peace of mind that your bargain basement TV will be away being fixed numerous times for a cumulatively very long time. Actually, that isn't true either, cos I think RS has a vague policy of replacement/refund after xx repairs, so if a(ny) repeatedly failing item is replaced say at year two, that's the end of your "peace of mind" 6 year warranty. Sometimes, a 6 year peace of mind warranty equates to a short term piece of junk warranty.
In context, I have owned a number of UMC items and all have performed faultlessly. But I know techs in the TV repair trade...
Well I beg to differ based on my experience with them. Have had two TVs that needed repairs after 3 years (power supply fault and backlight blown), one was repaired within a week and the other was replaced again within a few weeks as it was beyond economical repair. I actually received a better model of TV for the latter. A friend of mine had his Supercare refunded after 5 years as he never made a claim, apparently they've stopped offering that now.
Will never go to a retailer other than JL or RS for AV equipment.
Don't want to get too bogged down in t&c for warranty. Actual terms for RS 6year warranty state:The Company's liability is limited to the lower of the original purchase price of the product or its current value. (Current value means the cost of replacement of the product immediately prior to the time of failure with an item of similar age, specification and condition.)
1. All benefits under the agreement will cease if:...
c) A cash settlement in lieu of repairs is made, or a faulty unit is exchanged for a different model....
5. Following settlement of a total loss claim the agreement expires.

And you can tell that the current 6yr warranty t&c page is actually an update to the earlier RS 5yr warranty:http://www.richersounds.com/action.php?cdx=loadstatic&page=5yearterms
T&c should not be confused with gestures of goodwill by RS. I highly rate the RS service and its GoGW, but customers should be aware of the limitations of the written t&c.
Heck, "you can claim your money back at the end of the 6 year period if unused. Simply return your unused Supercare policy within one month of the expiration date, and we'll refund the price of your guarantee." What's not to like?

I take all your points on board, but these provisions are no different from what other retailers offer at significantly higher cost. E.g. Curry's Care Plan, a 5 year warranty on a TV in the price range £151-200 costs you £69 and the terms are the same e.g. a complete replacement nullifies the remainder of the cover.

The salient differences with RS appear to be the cost of the warranty (fixed at 10% of price), the full refund available at the end of 6 years if you hadn't claimed and of course, the CS which many happy customers will testify to.

In the case of a £200 TV, RS will charge you £20 (10% of ticket price) for 6 years' cover with their Supercare plan and will refund you if you haven't claimed in 6 years. The same TV will cost you £69 for 5 years' cover at Currys (35% of ticket price) and you can bet your bippy they will look quite confused if you try to claim the cost of cover at the end of those 5 years because you hadn't used it!

Bargain. I had the equivalent Humax Freeview box with an external HDD - worked a treat.
Alternatively, If you have half decent technical PC knowledge and an extra £30 you could consider a Wetek OpenElec box with dual Sat tuners for £99. With a bit of installing and tweaking you can get it to run Kodi + TVHeadend etc and make it a full blown PVR with all the other benefits of Kodi.
I got mine to replace a Sky HD box - recording stuff to a NAS drive rather than local HDD..
Granted it isnt as stable as a Humax or Sky box - but the flexibility and additional features more than makes up for it.
I love my Wetek for a lot of things, but I've pretty much given up trying to use it as a satellite box.

I had quite a few problems at the beginning - but then I was new to the world of Kodi / TVHeadend etc. But once I got over the issues, my box has been fairly stable for the past few months. I record TV shows to my NAS so that I can watch them on my tablet. I also record the more important progs to my YouView box - just in case the Wetek fails....

Good deal and great boxes, but bear in mind this one has not got the hard drive to record (I don't know if you can add one though).
The 6 years cover sounds good for £9.99 as well.

From TrustedRevies:

As if that wasn’t enough, the HB-1000S can also be turned into a PVR by connecting an external hard disk to the USB port. That means you can schedule recordings from the EPG and record an entire series at the push of a button. There’s only one Freesat tuner, so you can’t record one channel and watch another, but it’s great for recording stuff while you’re out.

49" going down to £359 according to John Lewis Glasgow branch today, was instore and they told me to wait a couple of days as they're shifting them to make way for new stock. Won't make a deal just yet though as no ground to plant flag in!

That smarts having no smart, use it a lot. Is there a version with smart functionality?
Smarts in a TV are more of a liability than a benefit.
We have a "smart" Toshiba. It's only 5 years old, but none of the features that it came with work any more. The iPlayer API was changed and the TV firmware never got upgraded. The Youtube app went the same way and all the rest of the stuff was so clunky that it was unusable. The Skype app never worked and was tied to an extremely expensive proprietary camera, anyway.
Once they have your money, TV makers have no incentive to provide upgrades. In fact if it prolongs the usefulness of the TV, it positively hurts them. So give me a TV that is little more than a screen and input selection and I'll handle the rest with cheap add-ons that CAN be upgraded, or replaced for £50 rather than spending £££ hundreds on replacing the whole shebang, just because the old telly can't install the last, bloated, version of Google Play Services.
Plus, who's to say what the new "killer app" will be in a couple of years. All you can be certain of is that a smart TV you buy today won't have it.

If in doubt buy a Samsung. If you are further in doubt buy a Samsung with evolution kit.
If you are further than further in doubt you have absolutely no idea what you are buying so do not buy.

Would this benefit me for gaming , xbox one or ps4. or am I best of sticking to a high end hd tv
I have no problem gaming on my 4k TV's one of which is a LG.
well you won't see any benefit - as your console is only capable of providing games at a maximum resolution of 1080p, however a gaming PC capable of 4K output would benefit from a 4K television
there's no harm in using your console on a 4K TV though
The TV upscales the image so it does have additional benefit, also the Nvidia Shield is a 4k console for both games and streaming.
the OP was talking about Xbox One and PS4
And the TV upscales the image from a PS4 and XBone so what's your point?

Any one use this as a PC monitor?
Asking the important questions I see..
Was that sarcastic? A 43 inch 4K TV is pointless unless you sit about three feet away from it AND have access to 4K sources (currently almost non-existent). However, if it works well as a PC monitor it can easily justify its existence. So I, for one, am very interested in the answer to that question.
Likewise, Im looking at getting a 4K for exactly this reason, screw gaming in an uncomfortable chair where you could be gaming on the couch with better resolution.. I'm just not sure how the experience would really be.

He's absolutely right though! In the 90s mission speakers were excellent, they released some amazing speakers and I'm still running a pair of 783 fronts and the matching centre. They are still and incredibly powerfull and awesome sounding set that can't be replaced unless I want to spend £1500+, and even then I think I'd struggle to see a major difference. These days they are budget speakers, IAG purchased them around 2005 and ever since they're no better than wharfedale, who are also owned by IAG.

cold for retailer rubbish, they advertising stuff which they can`t get to they stores, then try to sell you something more expensive
I use them a lot for products for the installs I do.
I asked when I went in and they said they had plenty in the warehouse and in stores. I do notice when people post on here for other Richer sounds offers people seem to always miss the bit where it says "Last Few To Clear Check Availability" Where in this case it does not say it anywhere and they are available.
Example this product http://www.richersounds.com/product/soundbars-sound-base/yamaha/srt1000/yama-srt1000-blk
look to the right you click the box that says "Last Few To Clear" and it tells you where they have them.
I just put it down to people not looking properly.
didn`t miss nothing bud.....
went to the store a week before my birthday , explained my budget, agreed price, ask for demo a CERTAIN set of speakers they said not a problem, so been happy all week went to the store for appointment demo.... and no speakers available the set which they propose to me was only 300 more expensive.... so get me really wind up in my birthday ... **** didn`t even bother to let me know so yes horrible staff and try to sell me completly different packacge and when i asked for a ANY deal he said you must check online
Hi there,

I was really sorry to read of your clearly dreadful experience at our store and offer my sincere apologies.

So that I may investigate what went so very wrong here and ensure the matter is resolved to your complete satisfaction would you be so kind as to PM me with some more details?

Don't generally waste my time on sheep that have little understanding of audio engineering or Theile/Small parameters but as people generally see essay length replies and assume that that person knows what they are talking about I feel the need to reply to Cicobuff and Crossy.
Firstly Cicobuff, Yes you are never going to have faithful reproduction of anything you listen to if your speakers aren't even capable of reproducing the frequencies of the material you are listening to.
Trying to stick to the subject (rather than going off on a tangent like yourself and crossy talking about your own more expensive speakers which are completely unrelated to this deal or talking about audio electronics when I am comparing the merits of one speaker to another).
I feel it strange how "you don't need bass extension" when this is such a fundamental component of sound regardless of whether you listen to classical music, pop or movies.
Secondly you misinterpret my comment about paying for brand names (by which I mean you are paying for the brand as opposed to the quality (BOSE etc), and the £150 Tannoy V4's easily trounce this deals speakers in every respect based on sound quality when comparing like for like (correspondingly being 5* rated by what hifi etc when compared with other speakers up to £700, the SX1 generally being received much less well). The facts also speak for themselves 32-25,000Hz for the V4's compared to the SX1 with 62-40000HZ. Maybe you're willing to pay for transonic sound which you can't hear but most people are not.
It wasn't until you said the following that I knew you didn't have a clue -
"I think you will find these are pricey speakers because they are premium builds, titanium dome tweeters and aluminium bass drivers. Compare that to paper dome bass drivers and polyester dome tweeters in those Tannoy V4 (I thought you did not like brand names) then you can argue all you like about 'premium brands' obviously better quality drivers cost more money....even if you were to build yourself....it's not rocket science."
Well having built my own loudspeakers, subwoofers and also owning some pretty high end off the shelf equipment I know that some of the best drivers in the world are made out of paper (Peerless etc.) and that titanium dome tweeters are nothing to start shouting about (maybe you don't mind metallic ringing).
Sound quality is to an extent subjective but if paper and polyester can sound better that's fine with me. BTW the titanium tweeters benefit is for power handling and to market higher transonic frequencies relative to what most ribbon or silk tweeters can handle, but if you're happy to pay a premium for a fancy finish then who's to say you're wrong.
I suppose if you have so little space in your house that you can't fit in some floorstanders then I suppose sound quality is the least of your worries.

So basically the components do not matter as long as you have a big cabinet and lower/higher frequency response?

You may have some knowledge of speakers but not to take in to account things amplitude, driver build, cabinet design, crossovers, capacitors, materials used, dampening shows your lack of overall knowledge regardless if you built you own speakers or not.

Also I only mentioned what speakers I owned because you were stating floorstanding speakers will out perform standmount speeakers just because of frequency which is not the case.

Lack of space can be down to many factors and nothing to do with house space you snob. Many people have family`s or other furniture that take up that space because speakers are not a priority in there household and they want good quality speakers to suit there environment so opt for standmount speakers.

Enjoy you bass extension.

For everyone else if you got a pair please enjoy them and know you got a good deal on a decent set of speakers.

Personally I'd go for this 5.0 setup and then ad a seperate Subhttp://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/5-0-speaker-setup-richer-sounds-310-2371808


only 5.0, you would have to budget in a subwoofer, also you will have ring round to see if you can get each component separately.
this is also an alternative http://www.richersounds.com/package/speakers/speaker-packages/pah01309

The YSP might be a decent soundbar but it's still a soundbar... it will never be comparable to an AVR and 5.1 setup.
I've auditioned one in my local richer sounds and it's a long way short of a proper 5.1 setup

I have to disagree with you; while with the YSP you definitely need a subwoofer (and a good one for starters) however set up correctly it can give a very coherent surround sound experience. comparing the YSP range with normal soundbars is not fair, the YSP genesis was a £20,000 panel, the designer for which was bought out by Yamaha. That is why some of the Yamaha YSPs have between 18 and 44 drivers depending upon the model along with the amplification and surround sound processor, hardy your average sound bar with 3 or 4 drivers without amplifier or processor.

i would strongly suggest that richer sounds had not set up the system correctly and would not have had the room for it to behave correctly. YSPs also love unfurnished rooms. For the record my home cinema system uses wilson benesch speakers and a mordaunt short performance subwoofer with Pioneer LX83 av amp and matching LX Blu Ray player and i came very close to selling it (except the sub) and going for the top of the pops YSP. I was that impressed.

P.S. i dont sell YSPs and i havent been paid by Yamaha.

i wont vote cold as the price isnt bad but as Tannoy are clearly discontinuing the line expect the price to drop again in the not to distant future. Also for £400 there are options out there, consider you would also be forking out for the AV amp and cables and this doesnt look so cheap. Anyone looking at this should check out the excellent Yamaha YSPs, in built processor, no cables except the one going to your blu ray, subwoofer and TV. no trailing wires all over the home etc etc just a soundbar under the TV. Yes the YSP works best in a very lively room (ie little soft furnishings) but when it is set up correct a good one will really impress.

Plasma, you setup your system yet? End of line equipment is generally sold off cheaper to get rid of the last bit of stock?
I bought tannoy eyris centre and rears (retail price well over £1k) which are much better than your kit a few years ago for less than £140 then added tannoy dc6 fronts a year or so ago for £180, so not much more for much higher range tannoys.
Plenty of good deal about over the last few years on hifi.
except i have proof of my deal and you don't, your move
not seen proof of this deal, youve only linked up 1 element, in store only so likely have to scour various shops to get all the elements.
Will sound ok for a budget package.

They had plenty in other stores when i called. They even had the black version of these set. Richersounds apparently bought the last remaining stock from Tannoy.

Had this for 3 weeks and have an amp error, turned off and now won't turn back on. Have to send it back for repair, pretty disappointed for only having it for 2-3 weeks. Anyone else had a problem with this?
If you only had it for three weeks I am surprised you didn't just get a replacement...I was not happy when RS wanted to send my Yamaha RX-V675 (decided to go and bang...guess faulty power supply) off for repair after owning it for 7 months with light use under its 5 year warranty and managed to convince them with my unhappiness I wanted a replacement and not Yamaha...I got the predecessor to this the VSX-924 last April, so 10 months in and delighted with it...much prefer the sound to the Yamaha.
Well to be honest it only happened last night and haven't really been able to get in contact with anyone as it's the weekend. I bought it through Hills Sound & Vision who say on their website with warranty claims you need to contact Pioneer directly it seems, and they say on their website I need to send it to a repair centre. But yes you're right, I will make a case for a replacement unit to be sent and hopefully Hills can help me with that as 3 weeks is a joke for it to suddenly fail.

According to their terms and conditions.....

In the unlikely event of goods being faulty on arrival please contact customer services who will arrange to have the item exchanged or collected for credit/refund.
The goods will be checked on receipt to ascertain that they are faulty before credit/refund is issued.

Should the goods fail during the warranty period an engineer from the manufacturer’s service agent will visit to arrange repairs. Some smaller items may have to be returned to us for repair or replacement. Please check the manufacturer’s documentation and web site before reporting a fault as many problems can be resolved this way.

There may be a charge if an engineer calls and the goods are not faulty.

I would just push for a refund if not a replacement, and buy from Richer Sounds instead.

Yeah - my yahama Av-Amp only has two binding posts for the Centre Speaker, so I use two sets of speaker cable, wrapping them together at the amp end and splitting them out at the Speaker.

It separates High and low frequencies.

I bi-amp my fronts using my rear surrounds as the amp allows for that,

Plasma, Post your deal?, see if it gets hotter, they still have stock at RS.
Your comparing apples with oranges, for some your deal will be good for others who want better quality it won't, I don't own any of the components either from your system or the op's, however my speakers in my 5.1 are older model tannoy's except the sub which is a miller and kreisel. if i was in the market for a new centre speaker i would definately audition the 6c rather than the vci as 6c would likely be a slight upgrade to my tannoy eyris centre.

I haven't seen the 805 and 809 side by side so can't confirm one way or the other. Chances are its exactly the same panel and both will only be a true 100/120 Hz panel. The 'enhanced' motion flow rates are now done by all the manufacturers now and in reality don't mean jack sh*t because its true refresh rates that count. The manufacturers appear to have found some 'new' technology between 2014 and 2015 because which is only a year old had 500 'Hz' of whatever LG were claiming back then and the same panel now has a 1000pmi. It's all bo**ocks to be honest. The panel is the same its just what parameters they use to measure the result. It's a 100Hz tv so why not just be honest and say it.
Its a good job tv manufacturers don't make cars because they would be fiddling the bhp of the engine yet it would use the same fuel and be no better or faster.
If you view a tv in Currys or somewhere else. Make sure its tuned into a terrestrial tv channel, not the manufacturers usb stick. If you like what you see then buy it. 3D is a passing phase and most £30.00 android boxes are a lot smarter than the glitchy, crappy smart services which the tv manufacturers deem fit for purpose. 4k, no comment.

Brilliant explanation - thank you. :)

[quote=Mrdom]ha, naa good to hear some real experiences, im currently toying with the idea of changing my tv, ive currently got a 4-5 year old lg 50 inch 1080p plasma thats been faultless, I paid about £500 and until recently there's really been no reason to even consider upgrading technology wise and i didn't want anything bigger (4k is just about starting to get interesting but im not sure we're there just yet, and im more interested in a 4k projector than a tv). Having just got a new sony for my parents i was very impressed with how tiny it was compared to mine (same screen size) due to the smaller bezel. Not sure i can justify it for that though... or i am also thinking a modern 55 inch would fit in the same space as my 50. But then i just come back to thinking maybe wait a year or so till the standards etc for 4k have settled down a little.
... Plus the plasma helps keep me warm on these cold nights.[quote=Smartguy1][quote=Mrdom]

Be careful it's a minefield out there.....Normally I take ages picking a tv but on Christmas Day 2014 I pricked my ears up at a tv Currys were advertising and thought hey that's not bad for a 50" smart 3D tv. Later that night I saw the advert again and reserved one. Picked it up the next day. My previous tv was an LG, about 4 years old (5 now) and was the same with a big bezel around it. The 50" was the same width and stands 2" shorter than my previous set. Never ever again will I buy on more or less a whim from a tv ad. There was a few reviews, all good tbh. The tv is sh*t in my opinion seeing as it's a 6 series and had been £899.00. Was someone having a laugh at this price.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lg-50lb650v-smart-3d-50-led-tv-now-699-currys-1922290

The tv is definitely not an £899.00 tv. Looking at the Sony 50" 809C in Currys knocked the spots of all the other tv's in the same row which included the 4k offering of LG's 49UF770V and Samsung UE50JU6800 both costing quite a bit more. No doubt my tv was another one of Currys special purchases from LG, bespoke to them using cheap or cheaper parts, built to a price perhaps because it really is not a good tv at all. What makes it worse is that it should have had LG's 'unique' IPS panel, as advertised on the LG website. They lied. It does not have IPS, it is a VA panel by AU Optronics. I think I would have been better off with A Panasonic fake made by Vestel.

Good luck in hunting for a new tv. I done quite a bit of research recently as I was looking at the replacing the awful LG. Sony is at the top of my list at the minute but who knows. There is always something else round the corner and Currys have a tendency to suddenly drop £200.00 off a tv so may end up with something that is currently out of my price range.

Ideally you want to turn off MotionFlow and any other 'enhancement' features anyway, they just serve to ruin the source content.
Good point although on an LG it may help to turn it on....mine is fine on fast moving but judders on slow panning like it has missing frames or they have used a processor from an old vhs recorder. Just waiting for my unlimited repairs warranty with nothing wrong, no charge to be confirmed my Currys and its going in.
Haha, that's where I feel like putting it. I think my tv had been either £799.00 or £899.00 before it dropped eventually down to £499.99. I think perhaps there is a reason why some LG models plummet so low in price whilst others do not. What's worse is that 2 months after I bought it they dropped the price on the Sony W829 to only 50 quid more than I paid for the LG. That would have been a no brainer if I waited. Mine suffers with real bad judder like its skipping (not with a rope). It doesn't do it all the time. SD programmes mainly and very occasionally on HD. Not impressed with the overall picture quality either. Could be the quality of the tv signal in my area or possibly something else is interfering with it.

Yes this TV will only have 12 months grantee but for £499 the spec is excellent also has a 5.1 decoder built in so you can listen to HD channels in Dolby without the need of an AV amp and it has a 40W speaker system with a subwoofer OK I know this will be limited but you will get reasonable sound from the TV.
