Haha it’s probably the ugliest tv going. Obviously great tv but the soundbar is a stupid idea imo.

got a sony KD55XE9005 and soundbar at £1099 waiting for me at richersounds and whilst this is an even better deal still will go with sony i think. Hopefully will sell soundbar; something you can’t do here.

Appears to be out of stock.

One thing to bear in mind. Apparently LG grade their panels reserving the A+ grade for the top end models going down to the B7. So working on that theory the E series should have a better chance of a better panel than the B series.
Might be a load of tosh but it did come from a chap in the know...

Going by a few reviews people say that out of the 180 degrees around 55 offer a near perfect picture, but a guess if you have it right in a corner 55 out of 90 isn't bad.


In my limited experience of using an LG SJ800v and a Samsung KS700 I would say that viewing the VA panel from the sides offers a clearly worse picture than directly in front but in terms of contrast it's still probably comparable to what you would get from viewing an IPS panel from the front.

Obviously I have done my homework. When I referred to this TV I said entry level oled TV, not TV
Do you watch your TV on mute? I guess not.
So sound is taken into consideration when watching. Design does to. So bearing those points in mind the B series is LG's entry level OLED model on top of the fact there are more expensive oleds on the market. Try buying a Sony or Panasonic for the price of a B series. Maybe look up the definition of entry level.

I meant TV not pc.As i say, this tv is one of very few that will feed Atmos over Arc (Audio Return Channel) so you plug your hdmi from the Arc hdmi socket on the tv to your AVR receiver, this assumes your receiver can handle dd+ over Arc. Im not hugely knowledgeable, but this link talks more about it...http://www.avsforum.com/forum/#/topics/2378442?page=1


Got it. That sounds like such a straight forward solution, thanks for advising! If this works, I'm sold. I will look into it and if my AVR doesn't do ARC, I'll sell it and get one that does.
Yamaha ysp-2700 soundbar at Peter Tyson Audio for £619
51°
Found 28th OctFound 28th Oct
Great soundbar this. Very good sound and virtual effect that works surprisingly well. 3 hdmi in ports for multiple devices. Lowest price I've seen it at.

I was looking at this Bose and sonos at the beginning of the year. I opted for the sonos in the end however at this price I would have seriously considered this. Voted hot from me.

I have this and tbh it works very well and sounds superb. I downsized from an amp and separates and this works far better than I was expecting tbh. Having a square room will definitely help with the surround aspect. My only complaint is it cannot pass Dolby Vision through the HDMI ports but Yamaha have mentioned it could be added but not as yet anyway. I tried a few bars including Sonos and Bose and found the 2700 gave a much nicer sound and also includes the sub unlike the Sonos or Boss so is pretty good value for money. Heat from me...

If you don't have a perfectly square room with objects in the way don't bother! I spent a small fortune on the YSP 1600 after being demonstrated both this and the 1600 in action. The only real difference between the two is the subwoofer. As for the sound bounce-short of buying sound deflecting panels I'm very disappointed with its inability to produce a good surround sound. I got a better sound from my 90 quid Sony sound bar.

For what it's worth, and probably not a lot, the backbeat pros have better sound quality but a lot worse noise cancelling. The qc35 fit great and the noise cancelling is amazing.

I am wanting to connect this to my TV as well, but having good quality sound for listening to music is important as well.

Another big advantage of this over a regular hifi is the ability to play music from a variety of other sources, eg internet radio, spotify, a NAS drive, etc. Most hifi-specific kit doesn't tend to do this.

The reasoning amongst audiophiles is because these boxes do so many other things they're a jack of all trades and a master of none. Personally I'm sceptical which is why I was asking if this would sound as good as a similarly-priced hifi amp.

I really want this Denon receiver but I'm new to all this. If I get a pair of hifi speakers, will this work well as a hifi if I put it into direct mode? A lot of audiophiles claim that a dedicated stereo amp will give superior sound quality but I find that quite surprising.

11 channels and 2 subs, current one only does 7 and one sub.
Airplay, Spotify, internet radio, etc. built on. (Old one has no internet capability.)
My AV receiver is hidden behind sofa, so I can now control it and other equipment without doing a billy elliot pose to make remote work (using the control app).
HEOS - basically, Denon's version of Sonos. Potentially better sound, although the user experience ain't as good....yet.
Atmos, etc. Current one onyl does DTs-HD and Dolby True HD.
So for me personally, I am not just paying for more amplification channels.

Ok, think i need this Amp then:

Would never use the features this offers. Great rear though.

Sonos with my music of choice was incredibly sibilant, the SoundTouch in comparison is considerably smoother and enjoyable.

I don't think you're going to be able to create a proper 5.1 with active monitors, I don't know allot about them to be honest but seen a few discussion threads people asking about whether they can use them with their AV Receiver and it being a bit confusing (Not sure why you'd connect power speakers into a power amp but I'm no expert). Pre outs I guess?

You could hook 2 up to your TV I guess and create a stereo sound...

Thanks Spritey, appreciate the advice.

At the moment will relax as I'm not due to upgrade the system for a while apart from the AVE

Lighters

Thanks for all the info spritey I will go to richer sounds for a demo. … Thanks for all the info spritey I will go to richer sounds for a demo. How good is the songs 5.1 in comparison for the money. I don't really have a rear for the speakers in living room it's more to either side of the sofa so is that still ok



No worries. 5.1 positioning is typically either side of you (See below), it's only when you goto 7.1 that you have speakers positioned directly behind you. Most AV receivers have a calibration mic / software so don't worry to much about being 100% accurate. The calibration on the Denon is very good, you get a cardboard stand that you put together and mount the mic on so it can sit at ear level of your seating position. You then follow the instructions and it'll calibrate for each seating position with the mic. I did find it put the bass a little lower than i'd like it, so turned that up manually.. Otherwise though it was perfect.

See Rev6 post for advice on music, pretty much what i'd say. If you need anything else in future - always feel welcome to drop me a message on here. Happy to help.

So jealous of all you first time proper 5.1ers - i wish i could go back and experience the first time i setup a proper 5.1 with AV Receiver in my living room, the feeling of awesomeness didn't wear off for months.

Just a side note. AVForums is a great resource for information also, there are so many knowledgeable people on their forum (Far more so than me) who love to assist and help people out.
