Get to currys or pcworld, costco and have a look yourself, ask to have same video or have your own 4k video to check on usb drive. Keep in mind that picture settings might not be adjusted in shops. Generally if deal is around £100+ less then who cares? The only thing I would actually grip on is processing power! New tv's are absolute sh*t, they become like smartphones plenty stuff but none of it works properly!!!! Even £3k tv's face same problem! Pure example sticking pixels or ghosting effects etc.... Some areas just freeze like on old pc... Good luck anyway... You just have to accept it as it is

Would the fact that it's an 8-bit panel discourage you?

I'm coming from a 4-year old 40' Samsung 1080p and wouldn't be looking for top specs.

The 50" model has dropped to around £400 and less several times over the past few weeks... so no need for a time machine, just a bit of patience should be enough. I think it's around £440-£450 currently at PRC / Crampton & Moore.

So true but when the missus tells you that you left the bachelor pad to set up home in a family house together the front room becomes a front room and numerous boys toys must be sacrificed

In that predicament it leaves little option to not just adopt one device solutions but to fully embrace them. I did a never ending project of research, both online and on the high street, till I finally made my decision.

With the use of intense negotiations Mrs Loyal agreed to two devices so I opted for the Canton DM100 and an active sub from a small manufacturer in Southend called BK Electronics.

I think I weighed on about 230 quid for the sub and £399 for the Canton so it weren't cheap but I'm very happy with the quality I'm getting being limited to just two sound sources.

I have the model down from this and is great sounding

Wharfedale DIAMOND 9.0 Speaker Pair, Instore £39 @ Richer Sounds
666°
Found 11th JanFound 11th Jan
Solid small speakers at a fantastic at price Has great reviews
Get dealGet deal

I am looking for not to expensive wireless speakers for a medium size living room can anyone help

I had a little adventure with Wharfedale Diamonds for my surround sound last year...

After following a similar discussion on these speakers I acquired 8 x Diamond 9.0 (of various ages) last summer: I was given two, bought two second hand online, then 4 came free along with a centre CC9.0 when I bought a second hand subwoofer SW150. I also bought another second hand CC9.0.

Three of the free ones were noticeably damaged in the cone, and of the others I went through them one by one, playing a tone that went through all of the specified frequencies as I noticed something was up with one of them. I then realised that the rubber flexible mount (which joins the moving cone to the fixed metal part of the cone) was ever so slightly split on one of them. So I then unscrewed each of the cones and inspected them. Then did the same with both CC9.0 speakers, each has 2 cones.

I graded each one and got 1 perfect 9.0, two almost perfect 9.0 (only slight resonating at frequencies below the receiver's crossover frequency), and one perfect CC9.0. The two almost perfect became my rear L and rear R, along with the perfect CC9.0 and two 9.1 for front L and R and the SW150.

I kept the perfect one (just in case), and gave the rest to my neighbour along with an old AV receiver and subwoofer, and even this flawed, cobbled together 5.1 ensemble sounded head and shoulders above their soundbar, provided the volume was not cranked past 'annoying loud'.

I learned:

1. Don't buy these second hand (even for £20 a pair) unless you check them inside and out, especially for splits in the rubber mount.

2. None of the ones I kept have got the recess front panel, and none have 'Made in China' on them.

3. The SW150 is very big and heavy.

4. My 5.1 set up now sounds great.

5. The worst 9.0 is now a doorstop.

Wharfedale hasn't had a UK manufacturing operation for decades. It hasn't …Wharfedale hasn't had a UK manufacturing operation for decades. It hasn't really been a meaningful engineering/innovation company since the 80s. For a very long time, it's just been a brand name, stamped on to generic products. There's no actual heritage or substance behind anything sold as Wharfedale today. As a previous poster mentioned, it was owned by Argos for a very long time, and then bought out by IAG. Interestingly, IAG tried to restore some credibility, and released some relatively premium (and well rated) products under the brand (around 8-10 years ago), although they were very derivative.Anyway, a £39 pair of bookshelves might as well be any pair of £39 bookshelves. I wouldn't put any premium on it being Wharfedale, or any other brand for that matter. When it comes to speakers, quality is everything, and it doesn't come at £39.Re. the made in China debate. These are, without doubt. However, so are almost all B&W speakers, some of which retail for £3000+, and are very highly regarded. The same is true for most 'mainstream' premium hifi loudspeaker brands. With the right production environment and QC, it's just as possible to build quality components in China as it is anywhere else in the world.


Interesting info there thanks.
Shame that B&W premium priced speakers aren't still made in the UK, they were made down in Worthing if I recall. And totally agree that China itself is not a measure of good or bad quality. It's just very cheap labour there. There's good quality Chinese made products and diabolical products.

This is a great use for them. People get suckered buying matching speakers for 5.1, 7.2, 9.3! surround sound speaker setups and end up using premium speakers for the rear and ceiling channels, which require a very narrow response range. These would be champion.

I owned these - OK in the office but not very good at Noise Cancelling when travelling on tube. I also purchased QC25 a short while later and those were much better on the tube and a bit better in the office. Partly because the ANC is probably better but also because the QC25 cover your ear much better (over-ear as opposed to on-ear ?).

I'm with you there Rob regarding the pure blacks. Was telling someone yesterday to get a Tab S2, (with OLED screen,) instead of his wife getting a new kindle fire. Much less light in the room to keep him awake when she reads, and far better on his Mrs's eyes before trying to get to sleep.

I purchased this TV a couple of weeks ago and seem to be having problems with the wireless connection - I'm wondering if it is faulty? The AC1900 router is only 3m away on the floor directly above - the TV will connect but when streaming Netflix for example it typically only streams the 0.5Mbps 480p or 1Mbps 720p stream. I've tried three different routers including Netgear R7000 and Asus RT-AC68U with the same results. I've tried both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands with different channels - same result. As a workaround I'm using a USB powered TP-Link portable router that plugs into the TV Ethernet port - this gives me the full 15Mbps 2160p Netflix 4K stream so I know there is nothing wrong with the internet or the router. My slightly older LG 50UH635V also works perfectly over wireless so I'm concluding that the wireless card in my TV may be faulty?

Now £449 😥

Yes, Currys is better offer.Have the r6’s, working great! The buy 2 and get £200 off is still working, code is on Currys website, you get the 2 for £138 and less if you use top cash back!. Same offer is on the r7’s and comes in at £200 for the 2 and again less if you use top cash back. They work great with samsung sound bar and surround sound is fab

Just seen these and the larger version in currys. I know sound is the most important but these are the cheapest feeling and looking premium speakers ever. Suppose not too bad at 2 for £100 but I think the slightest knock and these will break!

Is this available anywhere? I was in richer sounds earlier today. The guy checked on the computer and told me that no stores in the country still had a pair to sell. Some had one new and one open boxed that I could take but they were too far for me to travel

So IYO is it worth me just biting at this point?


There will always be new features and functionality with each generation of TV set. If you decide then these features are important to you then you should wait.

if they’re not important, then why wouldn’t you buy a set now, and enjoy it? Otherwise won’t you always be waiting for next years tv? Also bear in mind that you’re considering buying this at a sales price. Would you be able to afford the 2018 equivalent when it’s released next year probably around £3k?

thanks mate, I think I will wait a week or so to see if the prices fluctuate, I doubt there will be a price crash, just slight decrements over the months, seems like a good TV and will last me a while!

I would suggest waiting for CES, if the B8V supports major HDMI 2.1 features (e.g. variable refresh / 120Hz 4K) then the price on the 2017 models will tumble. 4:4:4 10bit, eARC and dynamic HDR are more likely features but they will still drive down prices on the existing models.

Not buying an OLED until they fix the screen burn issues as I mainly use the TV for HTPC, browsing and gaming.

If not then I might just go for a non-OLED such as Sony X93 series. I'll wait another year until I bite.

I refer you back to my dead pixels and plasma comment. In fact, nobody selling OLED screens has 'screen burn' specifics in their warranty (neither did plasma screens but they sold ok). So maybe we should avoid all OLED screens regardless of manufacturer? The tech had been around for years and only now it is at a price that is affordable. If you're worried, buy an LED screen. However, it simply won't achieve the picture quality of an OLED.

So you're going to buy an LCD which still has issues over years and years, under the assumption that the OLED issue will be fixed relatively soon?

You're in for a long wait.

And I say that as a plasma owner who is used to this kind of thing. Manufacturers are too focused on pretending this isn't a problem by not covering it in their warranties. In my book, that is major manipulation by relying on the masses to never do their research so they can pretend it's not a problem.

I really love the ambilight concept but sadly Phillips are over priced for what your get and unpopular because of it. I've found it quite difficult to even find reviews of some sets and their higher end sets are few and far between.

Seems they bank on selling low spec sets mainly with the ambilight feature being the main draw, which is madness.

Just waiting to see if they drop the price a bit in the sales before I buy.
John Lewis also sell this TV for 2K, but is OSS.
