LG 40UF770V 40 inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV Freeview HD £399.00 @ Richer Sounds

very good deal for a good 4k tv here can't find it cheaper anywhere else especially as it comes with a 6 YEAR GUARANTEE and has really good reviews on amazon.

Both seem like amazing value. 4K TVs are dropping in price really quickly, although it may be worth waiting for 4K TVs with HDR to come down in price, as these TVs have an absolutely stunning picture.

Bought this TV a couple of months ago and very pleased with it, just recommending it to a friend and saw Richer are £30 cheaper than other retailers and offer a 6 year warranty.

I have this TV. It's very good on the whole. Downsides are ITV and Chanel 4 are missing from smart TV, remote is not intuitive, and it doesn't have a VESA mount for sticking on the wall.

I had the 49" 850v of this last week from Curry's. If you turn all the processing settings, (Truemotion, edge enhancement, sharpness etc.) to 0 or off, you can get a great clean picture that was even close to that of my plasma. The only setting to leave on is super resolution as this setting contains detail.

Motion was really good and things like MOTD had no issues. My TV had to go back for 3 reasons:-

-Misaligned 3D filter meaning ghosting at the top or bottom of the image depending on your eye level.
-PVR function that messes up when recording HD, (Unlikely to get fixed.)
-Dirty Screen Effect that was visible when watching MOTD.

For the 55", this is HOT at this price.

Same TV posted a week ago gets 400+deg. Bizarre.
I almost bought this TV, but after going to look at 4k TV's I went for a big, quality 1080p set instead. I'm sat 10-12 feet away from my set and couldn't tell the difference at that distance. I'll get a 4k set in a couple of years when there is a decent amount of stuff available and the 70" ones are affordable.

Voting cold as no real advantage (as of yet) over HD. I have bought 5years ago 9th series LG led and only now there's up-to 10 decent HD channels with no lag and comfort to look at. So you better of to hold with new TV for another year or two if you got HDTV in good size. Otherwise buy now, but not this.

Update: Must say i'm very impressed by both Richer Sounds and the product. It arrived next day delivery, even only opting for the standard 5 day.

Took about 15 minutes to get it unpacked, wired up to my MA BR2's and connected to the Wifi - it sounds great! Very good value for money at only £129!

I had read it can be slow to switch on, and you can have sound cutting out- but I read online this can be fixed by the firmware upgrades? Could be a different issue but thought it may help you!

I'm running the latest firmware, v639 (which isn't very new, they haven't released any new firmware for it since December 2014). It's not a big deal for me since I usually start it up while my PC is booting.


Thanks for that! Most of the time it will get used for audio for movies etc out of the TV and AirPlay music! Out of interest, what speakers you using with it?

I've had one of these for a year or so and use it as a desktop amp to connect hi-fi speakers to my PC (hooked up via S/PDIF). It looks quite nice stood vertically, and doesn't take up too much desk space.

The only slight annoyance is that it takes 30 seconds or so to boot up after switching on, and the sound cuts in and out once or twice during this time (I think while it connects to wi-fi). However it's otherwise flawless and sounds great, so I would recommend it. Tested AirPlay once and it worked, but don't really have personal experience with that feature since I'm just using it as a basic amp.

Quality brand speakers. These have been around a while but renowned to be very good by many audiophiles.
You need to do some googling of facts, I believe the massive Chinese firm onkyo, bought tannoy, and use the name to sell cheap audio. Safer with a Sony!
You need to read more and stop talking tripe. Tannoy British made, owned by Music Group, production moving to China very soon. Some people......http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-36175640https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_Group_(company)
Don't trust the likes of the BBC, they tell lies, and Wikipedia can be edited by anyone
Tannoy are a cheap chinese knock off brand, just like Onkyo, they just stole their brand name from Public address systems we use in the uk.
They also skin pigs to make the speaker cones.
I have these, says "Made in the UK" on the back! Now a quick look at the back of my Sony sound bar and its actually made in China! :P
You must have a fake Sony, they are Japanese quality, premium audio!

I wouldn't say they're premium audio, and what do you mean by Japanese quality?. I doubt very much every Sony AV product is made in Japan with 100% Japanese parts, likely its just assembled. Majority of components likely from China, South Korea, Taiwan..etc. Anyway, Sony is mid range.

£2500 for something called hisense you must be crazy
You are an idiot. You know nothing about TV technology and manufacture.
Whether you know nothing or everything £2500 for a tv is stupidity
Yes, but you are still an idiot. So move on.


Are you buying one or own one? Bet you havnt or won't be, £2500 for this would get you a hell of a decent make tv. Lg oled have come down to below £2000.

I own 2 65 inch curved hisence and Imo one of the best TVs I have owned
The hd picture and 4K is just fantastic
One in my my living room
And use one for gaming in my computer room
Don't knock them until you've acculty seen one perform
If i had not just bought the Sony VPL-VW1000ES I would have had one of these straight away
Hisence will become up there with sony and Samsung by the end of the year
I'm not knocking the company or it's tv's, but I do lack any experience with these TV's, which is why I would be personally dubious about splashing out £2.5k on one of these. Reviews are good for reference, but nothing beats personal experience in my opinion. Once these tv's are in more uk living rooms, and we're seeing them regularly ourselves and getting testimony from friends and people we know and trust, their reputation will grow and more people will be encouraged to buy the products.


The same could be said about all the brands you mentioned 20 years ago. As long as you get a 5/6 yr warranty I see no problem.


​when LG first broke into the UK, I wouldn't have splashed 2k on one of their tvs either. whether you've got a warranty is largely irrelevant, ad it all depends on how/whether those warranties are honoured.

I really like the FiiO e10k headphone and amp. Its £62. It also doesn't rely on drivers so you don't have to worry about audio stuff not connecting. It powers 500 ohm headphones which is pretty high resistance.
Most dac and amps will be better then the onboard audio.

According to richer sounds, this tv does "HDR Streaming Only" - any idea what this means?
Google doesn't come up with much unfortunately.
I think external sources connected via HDMI (such as an external UHD bluray) need to be connected by 2.0a to transfer the data necessary for HDR, so maybe that statement means HDR is only available through a direct Internet connection via the TVs apps, because the HDMI connection is 2.0?

The HDR update also included hdmi 2.0a

Sammy all day long. Although I've heard the webOS on the LG is better
Sammy only all day long if you sit directly in front of all. The slightest angle and its no picture all day
Hey Sharphap,
I have seen you comment on a fair few posts regarding TVs and you seem to be into it, whats you opinion on these?
Ta
Since you ask.... I'm heavily invested in getting a new TV myself (55-inch region) and I do my research well.
In my opinion, stay clear on Samsungs, even the 2016 models suffer from viewing angle issues.
LG are very good indeed, not had a chance to check this particular model, but if this LG set lacks HDR and is poor with motion, then save for a 2016 model.
Sonys are slow, Panasonic have shocking warrantee support.
More info when I get a chance
Thanks for the reply.
Wow, didn't expect that in regards to the Samsung range. So LG would tend to be better than Samsung generally?
Thanks

Yes, without any shadow of a doubt. The only way the Sammy beats the LG is if you look dead-on. If you want a TV in a family environment, then go Sony or LG.

It's a shame really as the Sammy interface and menus are fantastic, it's just a shame they are stuck with Curved screens (presumably because they signed a long term agreement with a curved screen manufacturer) and are now stuck with them while the competition leave them in their dust

HDR starts at £1299 I've checked everywhere.


Which size?
Rabshek
Interested in this..... but need to go have a look at one in the flesh.

Most LG's are IPS panels which aren't quite as good as VA where blacks are concerned, but better for viewing angles.... I'm looking for one for my bedroom where I watch in near darkness. My previous plasma (Kuro) has an intermittent fault which means it needs to be replaced. Trying to avoid any LCD with edge lit LEDs though as my friends have had plenty of issues with them whilst watching in darker rooms (you can see the lights at the edge during dark scenes).

HDR..... not a deal breaker when you're looking at a £800 60 inch TV as the typical user won't really care at this price point. The OLED I almost bit the bullet on was £6k.

Reviews aren't as widespread which isn't helpful.

Figured that I'm gonna get a mid range or so 4K screen, and the money I saved upgrade my main TV to an OLED when prices and tech settle.

[quote=nomez][quote=Sharpharp][quote=smiler594] Panasonic have shocking warrantee support.
No wonder, they no longer make TVs and just license the brand to Vestel, JVC, Arcelik and some Chinese outfits with unpronounceable names. Pioneers too, just rebadged TCLs and Thomsons. The masses go crazy for their brands.

I bought this this weekend. It's a nice little hi-fi system, and the speakers are basically free. Leaves it open to upgrade / get different speakers later on (the ones you get are pretty good).
I read some non-plussed reviews about the functions on it, but the first thing it did when I plugged it in was upgrade the firmware. Better value for money than a sound bar imo.

Would this be better than a dm40 in terms of sound quality?
I'm not an expert but I've just looked and the DM40 gets really good reviews so I'd guess not. That wouldn't be to say that this one is bad, it also gets good reviews. Then there's the difference in price suggests that the DM40 would be better. The main feature of this one is the internet and streaming capabilities. The DM40 doesn't have those.
Just add a chromecast audio... Bobs your uncle.
Why use a Chromecast with this?
Add a chromecast to the dm-40, instead of getting this.
You get a CD player, offline use of dab etc etc

Ah ... Sorry I should have expanded the quote instead of jumping to a conclusion.

It's been this price for weeks now and you can only buy in store. The set was available online for £730 last month. It's a cracking set and bringing up HDR is pointless (like pretty much every other TV thread).

Unless you're purchasing a 2016 model, your set isn't going to meet the minimum requirements for HDR anyway (even if it says it can display via new FW update. That update isn't going increase the peak brightness from being well below 1000nits, which is standard on pretty much all 2015 sets..)

Slightly put off by the techradar review on motion blur, says it requires a fair bit of tuning to fix it .. but it was a while ago so you'd hope they'd updated it by now!
Rabshek
Not HDR.... but a very good telly.... check the reviews all over the place. Has won awards from What Hifi I believe.

Unlike a lot of the deals currently going.... this tv has direct back lighting which means the LEDs are sat behind the screen for better control, rather than at the edge of the frame. This of course means the TV is slightly thicker, but it's not exactly a leviathan.

Interested in this, but I'm waiting for the price to drop further as the new ones come out. Ideally looking for a 55 inch one for the bedroom :)
Calza211
This looks great but I don't know much - would love to hear some opinions on the specs! Is it definitely HDR?

(The 55" is probably a bit big for my room).

for everyone else, buy active

I use a small amplifier from amazon to allow the passive output from my av receiver to input into one of these. Works like a charm! and still cheaper than any other half decent sub. The thing I like about this is its shape and size means it can slot in where other units can't so is useful if space is limited.
hi. I was thinking abut doing the same, could you please tell me what exact amplifier are you using? I am looking for a cheap set up. thanks

Interesting article showing the expected specs and naming conventions of the Hisense 2016 US range. Note that there the 4k range start from the H7 series, which also lists HDR Processing. However the H7 range doesn't list Local Dimming, while the H8 series has Multi-Zone, and H9 & H10 have Full Array. What this will all mean in the UK we'll have to wait and see... ;-)

Finally pulled the trigger on a TV thread, can't fault Richer Sounds service - ordered at 1355 yesteray and it arrived this morning (-: Ignore the web site just call any branch or telesales and they order it from the warehouse for you. £15 for next day delivery was reasonable as well I'd say.

Have yet to properly get my teeth into it but for now I'm happy, setup was quick and minimal, its very light compared to my old (10 year old 720p Toshiba 37") so it was no problem manoevering it - would still need 2 for wall mounting. The screen is a world apart from my old one, I've gone from 720p to 1080p (upscaled) on a vastly superior screen and the difference is staggering. Obviously I'm not comparing it like for like but to my eyes its amazing.

I did a quick play of some movie trailers - awesome, and of some Xbox Fallout 4 - awesome. I needed to tweak the audio setting on the Xbox as I think a channel was not being sent, but its all good now.

A plus point I didnt consider is as it has a Optical Out, and 4 HDMI, its meant I can go back to a single channel on my Amplifier - makes things a little easier using the pass through audio function (HDMI in to TV, Optical out to Amplifier) the signal has changed from DTS to Dolby IIx though opinions are like ****holes as to which is better - to my ears I cant tell.

So for the money (less than half what I paid for the 37" Toshiba) I can't fault this. For sure there are better screens out there but this is not a bad screen by any means. If anything paying £400 for this TV now means I am open to splurging a lot on a amazing uber TV in the future once I get to grips with having a smart 4k tv - the old TV was basically just a monitor for the last 5 years as I never used the sound and it was SD only on on the tuner.

One last point almost to the inch it slips in perfectly in between my existing floorstanders, not needing to move or change them is also good.

I got an Optoma short-throw 720p projector for £140 once from Richer Sounds. It was refurbished with a new bulb. Perfect. Recently upgraded to 1080p version and gave it to my dad. You just have to do a bit of bargain hunting which is what we all like to on here?

Cold votes aside, at least now I know not to trust these clearance sales from richer sounds. I have never bought from richer sounds before and was genuinely tempted. But glad I held back.

Doing a bit more research and comparing stats it seems that the output from my Teac is quite low so I'm having to crank up the volume a fair bit. I've decided to get this phono preamp instead, again from Richer Sounds. I think it is also reduced in price but the reviews are very good and from what I gather it will double my output over the built in one.http://www.richersounds.com/product/turntable-accessories/cambridge-audio/azur-551p/camb-551p-blk
This has been quite an costly exercise if I also add the Ortofon 2M Red into the equation.... but..... I've really enjoyed spinning my old records, for all their pops, crackles and scratches.
Plus there are some really nice reissues and collectables.... the Fleetwood Mac - Rumours, LP/CD/DVD pack is really good and that's before you even get onto the music (which I personally have always liked).
Also my 17 year old daughter has really got into it and loves all the various colour discs that she can get for rock/punk/grunge kind of bands that she likes.
I have the same experience with fairly low volume from my TEAC so have to turn it up a bit though not enough to want to spend another £50 on a pre-amp (just another box getting in the way and using electricity). But I'd be interested to hear how you get on with the amp.
I did also look into alternative carts - did you see this discussion http://www.vinylengine.com/turntable_forum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=51817 which might help?
Phew it's all very complicated isn't it.... at least with digital 0's and 1's it's either on or off and nothing in between :)
My Amp is a Sony STR1050 AV, it's a nice amp and powerful, roughly 150watts RMS I think.... and I'm running it into some fairly large JBL Northbridge E80 front speakers, for the centre speaker I have a Monitor Audio MR1, surrounds are Wharfedale Diamond 9, finally I have an old Onkyo Subwoofer.
The system overall (amp, speakers etc..) was about £500-£600 and I'm very happy with it when it comes to all my digital media, Blurays etc... First impressions with the Teac were not good..... set to standard stereo, minimal equalisation, the turntable sound murky/muddy and had barely any bass. I was having to put the volume up to 50-60 to get to a stage where the volume was loud enough to "enjoy".....
I tried some of the presets on the Amp and found that Prologic PII made a huge difference... also all the speakers were then in use (which I like) and the bass was restored with the help of the Sub. Still the volume was faily low relative to other inputs I have, for example streamed music at Volume 40 would be very loud, strong bass, vibrating doors and floor. To get the same thing with the turntable I've got to go up over 60 but then that starts to introduce speaker interference (not much, but you can hear it when the turntable is not playing). I'm hoping that the new Cambridge pre-amp that seems to get good reviews will increase the output and improve the volume so it is roughly equivalent to my other inputs through the amp.
I was going to hold off on the Ortofon cartridge but I'm now kind of in for a penny in for a pound and will always wonder what the difference might be, especially as I am really enjoying this return to vinyl (less so the sound.... just the general experience). I did look at alternative cartridges but the Ortofone Red seems to be the most popular so that'll do for me (it's been ordered in for Thursday), that said the current Audio Technica AT95E seems to be quite well regarded, oh well I have it as a backup)
I've also got some new phono cables on order from Amazon, I'm not going to pay Richer Sounds inflated prices for their cables though. These from Amazon will be more than good enough... https://www.amazon.co.uk/KabelDirekt-Digital-Stereo-Audio-Cable/dp/B00FQK327M
Yes - these things are always complicated which is why I was pleased with how good it sounded off the bat with just a cheap phono cable (I might invest in the one you linked to) into the back of my Pioneer AV amp. I have a similar set up but smallish Wharfdale fronts which can't really help.

I'd be interested to hear how the new Ortofon sounds.


​by the way the leads arrived and they seem to help remove some of the background noise when the volume is up high, might just be my ears but they seem to have boosted the bass as well.

Which will be better this or the Rega RP1 ?
I think if you do some research that the Denon is infact a Rega with an uprated motor and tuner preamp built in... it doesn't have USB and I thought I might need that, so I was guided towards the Teac that admittedly appeared better looking and perhaps finished nicer. The Denon has lots of useful features though and the fact that it is sully automatic is handy but I did notice the buttons seemed a bit flimsy.
To be honest I probably would have been more than happy with the Denon but I'm just enjoying the whole vinyl revisited thing.
Just read some more reviews, said that the Denon is automatic and it is not as good ? and not sure about the quality of the preamp, might just get a t-amp instead. Heard somthing good about the Project Essentials too, with a good cartridge that comes with the pack. Still don't know which one i should get.
Yeah it is difficult... I hadn't even considered the Teac when I went into the store, having looked at reviews I had also changed my mind on the Denon and the Flexson Vinylplay was looking like the favourite at £199. When I go there they only had a open box Flexson and it looked OK although the fact you had to manual change the speed by moving the belt onto a different spindle was a bit of a pain.
I also limited space on my AV/TV stand for the turntable so I found the Denon was also a bit bigger than the Teac. The Teac just looked better in the flesh, better finish, better materials (the cherry one looks very nice but wouldn't match my equipment). The clincher was when the Manager (unprompted) said he would reduce the price to £249.... I haven't been able to find it cheaper elsewhere since.
I did take a bit of a chance but reviews seem very good indeed...here is a random one... http://hearthemusic.us/teac-tn-300-turntable-review/
I've spent another £150 now upgrading the preamp, cartridge and leads.... so that's it now.... I'm definitely not spending any more money, except on the vinyl.
If like me you've been away from vinyl for sometime and have got used to not only the convenience of CD but the immediacy of MP3/streaming then you are in for a nice surprise. I've really enjoyed taking my albums out of their case, looking at them, carefully placing them on the turntable, starting it up, placing the stylus, hearing those first pops and then the music. What was once a major hassle and what I saw as a flaw, but I have actually missed all those things and now I can be nostalgic again.
I think the TEAC is out of budget for me. I can get the Pro-Ject for £160ish and the Rega £180. Not sure if I should spend the extra money on the denon
