What do you need hdmi 2.1 for? No other TVs this year will have hdmi 2.1 …What do you need hdmi 2.1 for? No other TVs this year will have hdmi 2.1 so it's not exactly a big deal


Xbox One X is firmware upgradeable to HDMI 2.1 and that came out last year. So clearly it's possible for manufacturers to choose to support it now.

The sound system in the A8 has an additional subwoofer. And it's thinner for wall mounting.

Quite, so it's free versus paid for and has a lot of momentum e.g. Samsung, Panasonic, Xbox, Amazon, Warner Bros, etc. Therefore it would be nuts to spend £3k on a set that doesn't show any signs of supporting it.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t HDR10+ simply a rival to Dolby Vision? From what I’ve read (not loads tbh) it offers little more. The benefit is to the manufacturers rather than the consumer in that they don’t have to pay a Dolby licensing fee. With regard to the AF8, it appears to simply be a re-skinned A1 with a different mount. You say the speakers are better, but from what I have seen they are the same. The the only tangible benefit I can see is that the AF8 will lead to a price drop for the A1.

You would have to be mad to spend this much on a TV that doesn't support the latest HDR10+ standard. Especially if you use an Xbox One as it's coming to that soon. Not to mention that the A8 comes out soon which has better sound and a lower wall mount profile with the same display panel.

You could get away with keeping your 1040.
You only need hdcp 2.2 for 4K sources. You could keep your 1040 and get a 4K Bluray player which has a second hdmi. First hdmi goes to your TV for 4K video and the 2nd HDMI to your 1040 for audio. All your other 1080p sources will still go through your 1040. As for Sky, use the Sky box’s digital out.

The Denon does everything the Sony can do, has 2 extra HDMI inputs and includes Audyssey MultEQ XT which gives it the edge on sound quality compared to DCAC EX on the Sony. Plus you can buy the Audyssey app which lets you customise calibration to a level that no other AVR manufacturer can beat at this price level.

Thats not quite right. Here reviews from Rtings.com:
"Good all-round brightness. Even the worst cases such as sustained 100% window remain very bright. With 'Auto Local Dimming' and 'X-tended Dynamic Range' set to 'High' the X900E is able to make small areas very bright, and maintain this high brightness over time without fading."

Here is a review for the XE93 (my edit in brackets)
"The Sony X930D (UK XE93) can get very bright. For really bright highlights, both 'Auto local dimming' and 'X-tended Dynamic Range' have to be set to 'High'. Unfortunately, the TV brightness is also very unstable, and varies a lot when there is only a small highlight on the screen"

The HDR on the XE90 is very good. What they do say is that there are brighter TVs like the XE93 series. I wouldn't buy a HDR TV which doesn't actually give you HDR.

Check out the a review from the same site for the XE85 series
"Decent HDR peak brightness. The TV is consistently bright when watching any content, however its lack of local dimming prevents it from making small highlights as bright as intended.."

Also the XE93 is also quite a bit more expensive than the X9005 from what I have seen.

KU is K series Ultra, KS is K series Super Ultra, MU is M series Ultra. 65" versions of the KS9000/9500 were going for rather cheap when they got discontinued and they blow all the MU ones away, KS7000 does that also. The XE93 is a better tv than the KS7000, but I'm not sure about the XE90. What't the point of HDR and all these things if the tv can't show it off because it doesn't go very bright. XE93 is literally twice as bright, or that's what reviews say. Colours on XE90 are meant to be fantastic though compared to the slightly skewed ones you get on other sets, plus FALD is great.

This 5 years, free soundbar, deal was on powerdirect.co.uk for £1099 until earlier today - it changed to £1199 minutes before I walked into RicherSounds to price check!

@mobily having the set now for almost a week, would you say its money well spent?

@mobily Sounds good! Theres lots of stuff around about the Youview stuff and disabling it either on here or via Google. Sounds like your loving it! Im certainly leaning more towards this as my first 4k set now. Does standard HD freeview look good on it?

Original Poster

Had a couple of hours tweaking and have the following views:

- Picture quality is very good when you can get the settings right. I'm still not convinced I have the best settings but it's getting there.
- The picture does degrade quite considerably at an angle of 30 degrees. The image looks washed out, even the wife noticed it! Could be an issue if you watch it at an angle regularly.
- YouView. What the hell is this rubbish? It's slow, randomly disappears and generally annoying. Currently trying to figure out how to disable it and just use Freeview.
- 4k videos on YouTube are excellent (no HDR though). I haven't tried Netflix yet which apparently does have HDR.
- The TV can be sluggish I.e press the action menu and it can be a couple of seconds before the menu appears.
- Haven't noticed any DSE or dark corners. It seems very uniform.
- Motion is good but I'm still unsure of the right settings.

The main thing to impress is the picture quality and let's face it that is what you want in a TV.

I'm interesting in this one as seems to be a good middle ground for a 4k set, but wondering if it's worth waiting to 2018 models?

I settled on the BT3 in the end. Better than what soundbars can do, and plus it's then an amazing Bluetooth speaker for spotify in the living room. I have since added a second hand BK subwoofer (xls200 mk2) to it and it's now heaven. I think quite a few people have this combo and some people have commented on this set up on av forums over the last few years.

I've got one and it's amazing it sounds like 9.1 because there are small speakers in the top of the tall speakers, they are all wired separately from the amp. It works well with sky q. It's got good inputs and outputs and is good quality all round. I was happy paying £699.

Hi, just thought i'd comment on this.

I've had 2 of these in the last 6 months, twice the blu-ray/amp box has gone dead.
The second time I had to talk to LG who informed me it was beyond economical repair and had to be sent back to retailer. (its a 17kg box 1m long, not cheap)

Luckily both times I've had it refunded, it is a brilliant alternative to separates but just worth bearing in mind.

There is also a review on amazon stating this happened to them too.

This is also the cheapest price new.
Edited by: "Coolio103" 16th Jan 2017

Somehow seems overpriced even though it's cheapest currently

They've got some gall calling it a 9.1 system. More like 5.1 plus virtual channels.

Ahhh ok. I have been looking for a while tbh. Getting a soundbar was a must - the tv's audio is pretty pants and I wanted to stick to Samsung as the Tv will play nice with the soundbar. It had to be multi-room wireless capable too and once you buy into one wireless multiroom system you can't really chop and change.

Up until a few weeks/ month ago the lowest priced soundbar that could do that was the HW-H750 which sells for about 400ish and has a humongous sub.

will definitely take a look at avforums what speakers did you end up getting?

I had them. There are pretty good when you starting journey with turntable and staff. Lovely tune for jazz and blues.

Not much info around on these so it's difficult to judge but there's a 5 yr old thread on AV forum about these. Seems the price was £100 then as well.

Got mine delivered today, ordered from amazon warehouse, I'm not an audio expert but I notice a considerable difference than using just the TV sound.

I don't think Bluetooth is as necessary if you have a smart tv. YouTube from my phone to tv and plays through the soundbar.

No Bluetooth in this model.

this is a 120w unit, are there any good 200w Soundbars in the £100ish region? Wireless sub preferable
