LG OLED B6V down to £1,599.00 with 6 year warranty and Richer Sounds

£1599.00 @ Richer Sounds
This is very low for the 6 year warranty you get. The Argos deal can go down to £1533 but without the 6 year warranty. Plus Richer Sounds are really good with returns and exchanges. Cracking deal Read More

It's a currys code which I believe is now expired after trying it yesterday.
Is the b6 worth double the price of the 55in ks7000? I doubt it. But I want the Oled....
You will struggle to find a KS7000 now. But yeah OLED is outstanding.

Other than this tv, what other 10 bit 4k TVs are there which are good value for money. 49 inch and up... Don't care when it was released
Can u recommend some please ??
1 in Manchester and 1 in Glasgow when I called yesterday - that's it! (but was told they may have been reserved)
Are these actually in Stock anywhere?

Samsung are very rip-off these days, old tech that is very expansive , and have you seen the new TV's are power guzzlers, some are upwards of 250W, take in to account the annual bill before buying them.


Who looks at energy consumption when buying a Tv ?!? Picture quality not energy consumption. My Samsung is running low as anything, backlight on 8. It tells you when you push one of the buttons. When HDR is on backlight automatically goes to full 20. That's when it uses more energy but who cares the picture is mint.

The reason these tv's won't drop anymore they are near out of stock. If I wanted one I would buy now. But I bought the 55ks8000 instead speakers are far better and the stand and trim far better than 7000. Very happy with it.

Dont flame me as i'm total newb and no nothing bout audio though like tech so this may save me hours of reading!
Chrrently I have a Sony surround sound dvd system (Dav z something)
I have had this sometime however never use the dvd function.
If I was to buy this Amp. Would I be able to plug my existing 5.1 speakers into the back. My Sky Hd and PS4 and then get better sound quality?
Or
Have I missed the point and this is to control better bought seperate speakers?
The reason I ask is that I have already gone around the room with the speaker wires lifting the carpet and also havinv difficulties with a splitter getting sound from sky to surround.
So my thinking is I could unplug the main DVD unit. Plug everything into this ans then nkt have to keep getting uo swapping HDMI cables and optical cables?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
If you have the Sony DAV-Z260 unfortunately the simple answer is no.
I had one of those years ago and from memory the speakers have plugs on them which are specific to your receiver, you could remove the plugs but the speakers wouldn't be doing the Yam receiver any justice.
Also I think the Sub for your Sony receiver is a passive unit, you would therefore have to buy a new active sub.
Thanks Matt, it's exactly that model. Just looked behind, you're right, they are plugs.
I tried to get read into amps, but the whole ohms amps and matching speakers and amps together got a little confusing for now.
Just can't get Sky HD to work with splitter (though all other devices do)
What sound setup do you have now? Is it loads better?
I always liked the Sony I have, as I like to use the mic for auto setup and calabiration. Saw this as one too.
Not in such a rush at min and may also be best just to go to the professionals or Richer Sounds and buy amp and speakers together. Not heard better than my Sony surround (apart from cinema) so not missing out on much, but think I'm ready to treat myself to something new if it's worth the jump!?

I liked that old system, I replaced it with an LG Bluray all in one about 5 years ago (Maybe more) and it wasn't anywhere near as good as the Sony, the speakers were feather light compared to the Sony's and the Bass was non-existent!

I now have a Denon AV-RX2200W, Monitor Audio BX2's front and back, Monitor Audio Bronze centre and a BK Gemini II sub. It's not the final word in home AVR, it's more a mix of solid and good value items, but it is a massive step up both in terms of quality and price from your current setup.

If you're happy with the Sony producing audio that's acceptable and enjoyable to you and you don't want to spend £700+ on a new AVR & speakers then I would suggest sticking with what you have and trying to solve your HDMI issue.

I had a quick google and it looks like Sky HD boxes aren't too keen on passive splitter's, that might be your problem? If yours isn't powered you could try one of these - HDMI splitter

HDMI should produce better audio than optical, however if optical is the only option you could also use a splitter. Nothing fancy needed just a basic one like this - Optical Switch Just get the cheapest you can find, they're a very simple device.

If you do look to upgrade then definitely get yourself into the audio video shops in your area for a demo, they're normally very accommodating and understand that you're parting with a hefty wedge of cash.

Does anyone know roughly when the 2017 line ups will be released?
As for the HDMI 2.1 and eARC; would they make any difference to those who don't have Atmos?

Beginning of May.
I have the RXV481D, so a model or 2 above this one, but just wondering if anyone is using this amp or similar with Arc on a Samsung TV? I have a couple of issues:

When watching Netflix on the TV (Samsung app) the audio drops out randomly for a split second which is very annoying. Watching other apps, or the TV itself is fine (e.g Freeview, iPlayer etc). Netflix works fine if I set audio passthrough to PCM, but then you're losing Dolby D. Anyone noticed that?

Also, after an update, when watching content coming from the TV (i.e Netflix) the display now says "Broadcast". I swear before the update (or before I changed a setting) it was saying something else. Am I going crazy or has something changed?

Nothing special for an entry-level Samsung 4K TV, as already mentioned the 55ks7000 is a much better buy at 849
Would be a really good shout except that TV isnt made anymore


or is the KU6000 but they are still for sale the same as the ks7000 trying to shift older stock for the new 2017 models.
This looks great but I don't have any money, thanks.

Depends what you prefer...
sounds good a 60" Sammy for £800
but its not, True HDR (10bit), for usually £50.00 more you can keep your eye out for a 55" Samsung KS7000 at John Lewis with a 10 Bit Panel, very low latency for gaming, and a stunning picture quality.
so if you want 5" more but a lower quality image then go for your deal.

just bought a KS7000 myself last week, very impressed :)

How does this compare to a technics 1210 mk2
It dosen't.
1210s are built to take serious abuse and parts cheap and easy to get hold of.

I've a 3rd hand pair from 1998. Need a new target light on one and platter bearings could do with being replaced but still play great.

I know turntables didn't used to have pre amps, but to give it any kind of portability it's a deal breaker for me


Fair enough, I can understand you wanting to have a portable turntable, but many turntables ought not to be moved without partial disassembly in case of damaging any parts. Turntables like this also require finely tuned setup which would become tiresome after a few times (balancing the arm correctly by adjusting the counterweight, hooking up antiskating weight, securing rotating plate, putting on drive belt, etc.)
Whats the Marantz they have for £99 like in comparison ?

Could this be hooked up to my Sonos play 5?
Nope, you would need to buy a phono stage to put in between the turntable and the Sonus Play as the Sonus Play can only take line level inputs.

Thanks.

Sorry for all questions, but what justifies the big difference in price between those two?

You seem to know quite a bit about this stuff. I was hoping to produce music on garageband on the ipad and wanted a pretty simple set up to play it back and record stuff, just to give you a little insight into why I want the speakers. Thanks again

You would be better off with some monitor speakers i think. They're self powered so none of the above is needed.

Do you guys think the 3020s are worth the extra 50£?

For rears maybe not. But if you're using them for stereo or for the fronts of a multi-channel setup, probably.

Would an pair of old speakers from my cinema system work with the little amp? thanks
Yes if they're standard speakers.
Thanks, your suggestion to the amps opened a new world for me!
No problem.
I have the little Bluetooth amp myself with my own 12v 5A power supply. Powers 6 Ohm speakers pretty well. Obviously not too loud but does great. It can also be a DAC for PC using USB.
The speakers I have are 3ohm each, I should get a loud volume I presume?

Probably not

8bit+FRC dithering, it's also a RGBW panel.

Not for £900, no. They use RGBW panels to bring the cost down, which isn't something you really want in an expensive TV. I'd recommend seeing one in person before buying and possibly avoid altogether if you plan on using a PC with the TV.

As folk above has said it used RGBW to spoof a 4k effect from what is closer to 3k in effect. Still, it's cheap enough

lowest bottom tv in the market with RGBW, therefore not even a real 4k tv.
Vestel are a much better value

I think you're missing the point of HotUKDeals. It's to show people where to get Hot UK Deals on a particular item; the clue is in the name of the website ;) Your comment has no relevance to this websites sole function. May I be so bold as to suggest you sign up to a review forum, where you can take part in the type of remark / discussion that you seem to be under the misguidance this site is for (_;) I'd be very interested to get a link to the Vestel branded unit that is "much better value" with 6 year warranty and carrying the same specification, albeit with true RGB pixels. :D

I would double check whether this actually has freeview play - my understanding was xxUH603 series were not being upgraded by LG.
Have one sitting in my living room, it 100% has freeview play.
That's good to hear :) (the model had been missed off the upgrade list: https://www.freeview.co.uk/news-and-blog/features/freeview-play-launches-on-lg-tvs.html#74RcBUKkXpmy6XoR.97 )

Came out of the box with it. It seams mainly the LG TV's not to get Freeview Play as an OTA upgrade are the more expensive OLED ones, as it's assumed by LG that owners would already have provisions in place to accomodate catchup TV.

Some speaker recommendations at a reasonable cost compared to the cost of this unit?
For me the denon didn't sound as good when I tested it with my speaker set up so returned it for this, yes okay it has less hdmi Inputs but all are 4k hdcp 2.2 compatible, if you have more than 4 sources then I see why the denon wins but for me I only have 3 sources so why get extra ports I'm not going to use.

Musicast is brilliant too, denons app doesn't come close to the yamaha

The motion processing is better in the 8000, deeper blacks and has more local dimming zones. Also the speakers are far far better! It has dual tuners too. It took a while to find this info though. oh and the stand is much sexier (imo). Oh and i have this 8000 at 49 and the 4k is not wasted (compared side by side with a 50" 1080p set.


What's SD like on this compared to the 1080p set?


Sd is crap on all sets, it's a crap picture being fed to it.

I have this 55 inch I paid £1450 for it. Mint, the stand and speakers are class compared to my last few samsungs. Hd is class and 4K. Use avforums YouTube video calibration settings for best picture


Guess it's even more crap on a 4K set.

Can you plug an iPhone into this at all?
Yes, wired, using USB or a 3.5m male to RCA male cable.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/s/ref=is_s_ss_i_4_6?k=3.5mm+to+rca&sprefix=3.5mm+
Wireless possibly a Bluetooth receiver like thishttps://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00Y29NXEA/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1492201045&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=bluetooth+receiver&dpPl=1&dpID=41kqwMjV5RL&ref=plSrch
You can buy optical versions or use a 3.5mm female to RCA male cable to connect the receiver to the Denon. Then you would connect the phone to the Bluetooth adapter and play your music.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00OHW3Q4E/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1492201233&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=3.5mm+female+to+rca&dpPl=1&dpID=41TK4283PiL&ref=plSrch
That's if the iPhone supports Bluetooth like this. Android does.

Is it me or does anyone have addiction for buying headphones via hotukdeals?
Past few years I have got about 6 pairs, all fully working and are excellent in their own way, now I am wanting these because I know they are good quality and at a good price. Yet I don't need them! Someone help me because I was one of those person who said spending over £20 on a pair of headphones is crazy and was happy using them apple white headphones. Lol
You're not alone - I too have a headphone addiction. That and watches. Don't need another pair of 'phones or a watch but can't help myself!
No highs, no lows...it must be Bose!
I had these and broke them moving house. Get uncomfortable after a while but great sound for that price.

ut the soundbar can be in front of the TV connected by ARC surely?
I'm not arguing with you.. just pointing out that one is an in-between product by design,(as well as outputting the sound obviously ;) the other is and END Output device, not sure why you want to argue that point really but hey .. up to you :) Was only making the point , you dont have to agree with me :P

Anyone know if the firmware update to support Dolby Vision and HLG is out for this yet? Would get it but want to be future proof!
If your TV supports Dolby Vision you won't need this.
If not, I read that the update won't arrive until late 2017 or early 2018 (source).
You will if you want to pass everything through the denon i.e 4k bluray player. I know most come with 2 HDMI outs so you can get round the receiver not supporting DV but best that it does I think
i don't understand why people have everything going through the amp, why not just have your tv as the source? doesn't the tv pass on the full quality sound from a bluray player? I'd be grateful if someone could explain what I'm missing.
The tv will pass on most things but not Master HD audio and I doubt Atmos either. So you limit to 5.1 if you connect straight to the tv and then use ARC or optical to the receiver
How bizarre a £200 amp can pass on 4k visual but a £1000 tv can't pass on lossless audio
Not that bizarre when the amp is intended/designed to go between the source and the End output, be that TV /projector etc.. and that £1k Tv is the 'end output' so not "necessarily " expected to pass anything else on...

well they make soundbars to use with their tv's so that's not exactly true

This is the first time I have purchased an AV receiver. Can anyone please recommend a decent 5.1 speaker set for £200ish?
Quite limited around that price range. Check herehttp://www.richersounds.com/products/hi-fi-separates/speakers/speaker-packages
if I've got 2 big floor speakers I want to use do you have any recommendations on speakers to add to make a nice 5 speaker setup
Which are they? You'd want to try pair them properly as if they have different sound signatures it won't be as enjoyable.

not a big brand unfortunately, they're called omni audio and 200w each.. how do I know what they'll pair with?

I was interested but according to some reviews the gaming lag is atrocious (sad face)

Input lag is now better than the C6/E6/G6 after the recent update.

There is also a HDR game mode which I've been using with mass effect andromeda (PC - through Shield TV), it's not as bright as it should be though (standard HDR mode is much brighter) so hopefully they will sort this out in an upcoming update. I assume this will happen because a number of people are kicking off about it online, as is the way with these things nowadays.
Go for argos deal with free soundbar then code TVSAVE £1530 tried John Lewis but they would not match
Great deal, if you are looking for the lg sound bar to go with it Argos have this with the SH7 sound bar for 1699. Might help someone who wants to price match with John Lewis.

What if.... Give me some examples, I really doubt much gets recorded in analogue anymore. Sound engineers are not hipsters, they use digital whenever possible to preserve the original recording.

But hey ho....

As long as your vinyl sounds better to you on your acrylic upgraded platter turntable that's all that matters ;) . Out of curiosity, in what way did the acrylic platter sound better? In my technical mind the only difference that could possibly make is alter the wow/flutter characteristics in some way.

Having had a Rega Planar back in the day I don't understand this resurgance in vinyl. I'll stick with my CD's and lossless copies.
Half the story is about dynamic range my son, dynamic range.
Plus you become a hipster overnight.

Might be a cool or hip fad but it's not true that Vinyl has a better dynamic range, it's not possible! Infact they have to use dynamic range compression when mastering some records so that the cutter dosent bleed into the adjacent groove during loud passages.

The crackles, pops and hiss (which would drive me crazy) mean that the signal to noise ratio is no where near a CD, a decent CD player will play pure silence when it's meant to, you can't say that for records.

You might prefer the inferior sound for whatever reason but Vinyl cannot compete with CD or other digital formats in terms of quality.




Ha ha whatever.What if the original recording was an analogue source and mastered to CD?For me all the original master versions sound better.I have CD and vinyl and for me I'll pick vinyl every time not to be cool but because I prefer it.Im hearing sounds on recordings I've never heard before on CD due to compression.Fact is buy what you like but for me I'll buy original cuttings not re mastered digital to analogue pressings.
I understand that there are badly made recordings and get the whole loudness war. I generally avoid music that is badly produced and recorded, I find that some modern pop suffers from compression due to this. I guess my taste in music is bit more grown up, the genres I'm interested in are generally very well produced and recorded....and no way would they sound better on vinyl.

Music nowadays is digitally recorded, digitally mixed and then digitally mastered, so it's not like the analog vs digital argument holds up anymore. I can't help thinking the vinyl hipsters are being suckered, I even read something quite amusing recently, some vinyl releases used Cds as the master.

I'm curious about the records you say woop the equivalent CD release, please give me some titles I can go check out for myself.

Incidentally listening to music on cassette tapes now is also hip, go figure lol. Great for me as I managed to sell my old pioneer cassette deck for 150 quid on flea Bay the other week, I bought that in 1989!

We're in 2017 people, get with the times!

I bought vinyl from the age of 13 up till about about 23 then CD's became mainstream. I still have CD's from that era they have stood the test of time.

I recently achieved 60 so my oldest CD's have lasted a long time

A diamond tipped needle must have a detrimental effect on a piece of vinyl?

I understand where you're coming from but mastering (how you get the audio onto whatever medium you're selling it, CD, download, vinyl) has been plagued with something called 'the loudness wars', sure, a CD has a capability of a certain dynamic range BUT it doesn't mean that full range is getting used because for the last 25 years or so the main aim is making music louder and louder until dynamic range doesn't even factor into it.
There's plenty of good articles out there that explain this stuff.

And no, I have serious issues with vinyl playback, but sometimes in some cases, yes, the vinyl whoops the backside off the totally destroyed CD masterings.

I was looking at getting the lepy amp for these as well as the pioneer sslw500 to accompany it all, but as I am a bit of a novice to all this, could anyone confirm for me where I am expected to connect the subwoofer to the amp? I assume that the speakers will connect into the speaker connections but where does the subwoofer connect to?
You'll need an amp with a separate sub output, the lepy/facor ones are just an rca pair for left+right channels - great for a tiny portable mini amp for two speakers. In addition, the SSLW500 needs amplifying as well - most sub outputs on amps are pretty low power and expect a sub amp at the far end of the cable.
I'm not sure what new mini offerings are like, but if I were you I'd be looking for a cheap second hand AV Receiver off of fleabay or something for a similar price, with a remote control and in+outputs designed for doing what you want. Pair an active sub with a cheap onkyo or yamaha or technics receiver and you'll have a reasonable budget 2.1 setup.
back on topic - picked up rev6's little blue amp + a pair of open box 9.1s from superfi for £75 and they're a fantastic portable/desk speaker setup. At the distance I'll be using them a sub wouldn't add much, and they go more than loud enough when in my face.
Thanks for the advice, will leave the lepy alone I think. Was considering this instead http://www.richersounds.com/product/mini-hi-fi/denon/dm40-dab/deno-dm40-sil as receives good reviews etc. Was going to use a chrome cast audio with it.

Good price. Stereo performance was seriously underwhelming for me when i had a demo. Very flat (not in frequency) and sort of lifeless. I didn't enjoy it at all. Hard to explain. To add, it will depend on your speakers too, so your miles may vary. The Denon X2300W sounded better to me but £100 more.
The features are kind of mind blowing at the price just remember a lot of your money is going on that.
Thanks, I thought to buy this after comparing the plenty of HDMI inputs with Yamaha RXV 581. But read some negative reviews about VSX1131 in amazon. I planned a budget of around 300£. Also considered http://www.superfi.co.uk/p-18213-denon-avrx1300w-home-cinema-receiver.aspx. Quite confused now. Any tips please which one is best? And planning to buy Q ACOUSTICS 2000i 5.1 speakers. Would it match good?
I went from a demo with a Yamaha RX-A660 £550, to this, and couldn't continue listening to it as the difference was shocking. Both were running in pure direct/direct in stereo. The pairing of speakers may have played a big part, as the speakers may just be more complete with the Yamaha sound. It's a shame as I was so ready to buy this AV at £350 looking at the specs, it's unreal for £300. If you have cheaper speakers, you probably won't notice a difference.

Thanks. Do you mean VSX1131 is very good compared to that Yamaha? I am planning for Q Accoustics 2000i 5.1 package speakers £450. Which speakers did they used in the demo?
daskapital
I do own it yes. I'm very happy with it. I know a lot of people probably wouldn't admit if they bought a lemon.
I'm not an audiophile/snob and I wouldn't ever buy bose / sennheiser all that jazz but I do apreciate good quality sound having been a sound and lighting technician many moons ago. I think it's an excellent system. The sound is very good and in my opinion it was better than the £500 denon amp that I had before this. If you buy it from Richer Sounds they are really fine with you returning it if you don't like it and swapping it out. I swapped it after 3 days and they were fine with me exchanging it.
I'm using 9.1 speaker setup with Yamaha speakers ... two are ceiling speakers and two are floor standing, the rest is from a 5.1 kit. I have my Amazon echo hooked up for streaming music, it does DTS-X just fine, everything I've thrown at it .. it has played it just great.
It's probably not going to sound like a £1000 amp but since I have it plugged into an Amazon Echo and my TV I don't really mind in fact, im very impressed. I think it's a bargain at £299 very much. The firmware was a bit dodgy at first, but it's fine now as long as the first thing you do before you use it is update the firmware (very easy) and then do a full setup you should have no worries.
I've played HD audio on it too (FLAC) and via ARC using plex ... so not sure what the difficulty there is but perhaps not all TVs do it .. and maybe not all formats are supported? Not sure. But Dolby Digitial / DTX / AAC have all played just fine.
Get one, if you don't like it... just return it. Richer Sounds has excellent customer service.

Many thanks very helpful

It's a shame as I was so ready to buy this AV at £350 looking at the specs, it's unreal for £300. If you have cheaper speakers, you probably won't notice a difference.
I do own it yes. I'm very happy with it. I know a lot of people probably wouldn't admit if they bought a lemon.

I'm not an audiophile/snob and I wouldn't ever buy bose / sennheiser all that jazz but I do apreciate good quality sound having been a sound and lighting technician many moons ago. I think it's an excellent system. The sound is very good and in my opinion it was better than the £500 denon amp that I had before this. If you buy it from Richer Sounds they are really fine with you returning it if you don't like it and swapping it out. I swapped it after 3 days and they were fine with me exchanging it.

I'm using 9.1 speaker setup with Yamaha speakers ... two are ceiling speakers and two are floor standing, the rest is from a 5.1 kit. I have my Amazon echo hooked up for streaming music, it does DTS-X just fine, everything I've thrown at it .. it has played it just great.

It's probably not going to sound like a £1000 amp but since I have it plugged into an Amazon Echo and my TV I don't really mind in fact, im very impressed. I think it's a bargain at £299 very much. The firmware was a bit dodgy at first, but it's fine now as long as the first thing you do before you use it is update the firmware (very easy) and then do a full setup you should have no worries.

I've played HD audio on it too (FLAC) and via ARC using plex ... so not sure what the difficulty there is but perhaps not all TVs do it .. and maybe not all formats are supported? Not sure. But Dolby Digitial / DTX / AAC have all played just fine.

Get one, if you don't like it... just return it. Richer Sounds has excellent customer service.

If your so set on buying a LG atm don't bother with anything less than a UH850V
but that has a poor backlight; pay a bit more and get an OLED one surely...

Of course if u got the budget for it. I just got the m7000 hisense for £609 with ao after price matching and discount code plus £5 for next day delivery. I am not entirely happy with it. Bit slow on starting up, compared my UH750 I had. EPG is slow. Tried watching catch up slow and doesnt connect. Might send it back and get the 49" LG with dolby vision
* EPG solved via software update provided by Hisense but you lose freeview play for the benfit

It would have to be 8 quid for me to buy a lucky goldstar tv.
My current 42" LG LCD screen has been going strong for 10 years without any major issues. I'm waiting for it to stop working so I can justify buying a new one but the resilient **** isn't giving up.
I've got a LG 50" plasma, around 6 years old now, no faults, I feel your pain.

Tbh guys unless you got a 4k player its worth keeping what u got. Only a few films are in 4k and you will soon watch them and nothing else to use 4k for. Yeah maybe so colour is more vibrant and sharper and thats what your paying for

I was looking at the LG 55UH770V at Richer Sounds, would this be a better option than the one above?
I agree, this one mentions having a 10bit panel
The 770v is 8bit+2bit dithering. Only the 950v is true 10bit and of course the lg oled 4k range.
is it this one? LG
