Looking for a new tv for my parents

4
Posted 12th Oct
They are after a new tv with the following requirements

48-55 inch
Stand in the middle or it won't fit on the cabinet
Freeview play

Budget £400-£600 and would like it with a decent guarantee which probably means John Lewis or Richer Sounds.

Dad is a bit hard of hearing so not sure whether to try to go for one with decent sound or maybe add a soundbar.

Anyone any recommendations?

What sonic range is he deaf in? as its likely that swapping one plastic chassis, (the tv) for another is going to be a mere halfway house! ..plastic chassis cabinets are awful for quality of sound, so buy something hefty & solid, chances are that will work across a better range & require less deafening volume for others around & next door.
Thin tv's = shallow speaker pistonic movement & are generally crammed in as an afterthought, ..to me there are very few "good sounding TV's" ..but then again its all relative to what you have experienced & your needs vs expectations as a listener.
If he spent years with a "harry moss" car radio & speaker in his car then likely anything will make a positive difference.

For that sort of money you can get a 65 inch and for a few hundred more a 75 inch.

I imagine they are old with deteriorating eyesight so they will thank you for being such a wonderful offspring when they are watching strictly and the bake off

Yes BUT if he had the Goodman speakers mounted on his rear parcel shelf....That would have made ALL the difference
Most modern TVs have rubbish sound. Buy a cheap soundboard. Even a cheap one will improve sound significantly
