Depends on if you want a 65" TV. And how often you upgrade your TV and what else you could do with £500. I meant that this is the first time we have seen the C1 on sale, so it journey down in price to potentially even £900 has begun. CX hit 950-150 as its lowest (depending on if u risked very). Which is one advantage of not having major gains on a TV is cost of producing it (like the new gen consoles) will go down and benefit both the producer and the end user in terms of cost :)
But surely if you're looking to spend £1600 on a TV, the C1 "IS" the best, despite only minimal gains over the CX?
The CX at about £500 less than this is a no brainer. C1 will go lower but much later on in the year. As it stands the smart buy out of the two is clear to see.
And the sale begins. wonder how low the C1 will get over the next year.
There isn't anything that supports it mate and won't be for the TV. It will have no possible future use. It will only be needed again when panels are 12bit. Which would mean you need another TV anyway. As far as I am aware the 40gbs will handle everything that can be thrown at it at will work on that TV.
Thanks for posting and welcome to hotukdeals @Ichiboz
Great streaming device and the dac is surprisingly good too. Paid the same about 6 months ago, also have a little multi room setup with a pulse soundbar and pulse mini 2i, the build quality and sound from the bluesound stuff is very good but they are pricey
I enjoy the connectivity of the BluOS software/app that connects to most of the online services and local drives/NAS boxes plus it’s Roon ready for those that use Roon and if you’re an MQA fan, it will fully decode and render those files too. All in all a pretty good device and an easy way to add streaming to your HiFi.
New models shipping in early June...I imagine the old ones will be discounted further.
How strange. I was just looking into this model earlier today. It's good but still too pricey for me

Slightly better than CX for films but worse for gaming.
The link shows a good summary of what is to come this year from low-mid-to high price points. I think you just need to decide what features are most important to you and set your budget accordingly. I've had my 65" CX since June 20 and was solely bought to hook up to my PC. Admittedly overkill but I wanted to change to couch gaming setup and the CX offered the best bang for my buck at the time. Pairing it with a 3090 based PC really pushes the potential of what this TV can achieve and I'm constantly amazed at the results. I have the earlier C9 wallmounted in my lounge too which is very similar in spec to the CX. That pretty much gets used for TV and streaming apps and the image quality is superb. The reflective screen can be an issue at times but I rarely get chance to use it in the daytime anyway!
No plans to hook tv up to PC. Graphics is 1060 Nvida card. Albeit PC at other end of room!. No plans for PS5 or Xbox. PC currently has 27 inch monitor and is mainly used for old style games like WC3, Civ 4 etc. That and work. One of reasons I posted the other deal was because I thought it was a great price if RS price beat. I wonder if I woud really make the most of this set. I doubt I would buy 4k Blu rays. Most of my tv/film is on dvd/blu Ray. I have not recorded much HD tv on my Humax box. Maybe I should wait or get something else cheaper. Albeit if I do buy something it has to last 5-10 years.I do get a bit obsessed with some things. Great prices is one of those things. (y) Any thoughts on this link? https://www.whathifi.com/best-buys/best-tv
Will freeview channels like BBC and itv make use of the 4k hdr potential? I'm thinking what the best way to watch the Euros on this TV is...
This This is a great all rounder and won the majority of group tests for the 2020 TV's on release. To get the best of this screen you'll need to fully exploit the 4k HDR potential. If you're into games then its ready for the next gen consoles with 4 HDMI 2.1 ports and AMD freesync. It also uses Gsync too so if you have a Nvidia based PC you'll get the best experience. SDR content does upscale but if you're not looking at HD / 4K sources then you could save plenty of £ aiming for something lower end.
I think 6 year warranty is free on all TVs if you sign up to VIP club. Voucher on this runs out tonight. Looks like RS received 600 of these today so should still have stock. Quite a lot of PRC direct thread got the £1025 pricebeat at RS. So don't accept £1045. How does this compare to Sony KD55A8BU Oled? It seems to be priced £150 more. Albeit 2 year old tv. If your not watching HD tv is this tv worth it?

Sony KD-55AG9 55" 4K UHD OLED TV £1,289 with voucher @ Sevenoaks Sound & Vision£1,289
On every TV post I keep seeing comments of AG9, A8H, CX etc. It's good to know the HUKD community are really up to speed on their knowledge, because I don't have a clue so rely on you all! So can anyone tell me what I should go with for playing movies but also playing ps5? Both done on a daily basis. I'd like 55" and open to OLED or not. Thanks in advance (y)
I bought the TV for client viewing, so set up my tv for my computer which meant I used calibration equipment to make sure that it is the same (ish) as my professional editing monitor (it isn't that far off). For general settings, I have turned most of the motion setting off, as the image just looks weird, a couple of other things as well. I currently, have the brightness set at 25 which works for the room I have it in). The sound is ok and I don't have an expensive sound system (an old, Viso 1 AP (is sounds amazing but doesn't have all the bells and whistles of modern high end sound bars). I also changed the sound settings, to suit my liking a little.
Cheers, picked one up from Richersounds at £1269 (Pricebeat) 👌
AG9 stand is in the middle and I have a corner unit, that was my decision really. Nothing to do with spec as I agree, it’s almost the same other than speaker.
