Didn't have much time to play around as my son is having tuition at home.

Some quick impressions.
Despite being mentally prepared of the size change but still cannot help but be awed by the difference from my previous TV.

The viewing angle is not bad too as it is still quite clear when viewing from off centre.

Before


After


Basically everything is bigger and clearer..

The soundbar was also very decent playing back shows and movies.. havent tested the musical part yet. The sub is placed beside where i'm sitting at the back.


BTW some querise,
the guy highly recommend me to use Optical instead of ARC.. i dont have a bluray player now so will probably stick with Optical cable for now.


Other pictures to share;

Spoiler!

HDMI will give you lossless sound but whether that makes a difference will depend a lot on your source and the speakers..
The tv seems a tad high but itís looking sweet

indeed based on the article it's slightly higher than recommended. i just tell the guy to install based on his best experience since he has installed a lot of big TV this year LOL...

Also i'm sitting about 4m away from the TV and even so it looks huge.

Err, the installer did the WAF thing, made it central to the cavity, but not at your eye level...
Most home owners try to make it look nice when they are Standing Up...

4m? Too far... try 3m for optimal 4k viewing, or you lose the benefits of the size..
Your pic clearly shows that the centre of the screen is way above your eye level..

Thanks.. i think it's the angle.. my son was the one sitting there...
i'm thinking to move the Sofa forward and put 2 surround behind... but hard to pass the WAF part though

yup i'm sure it could.. after that they still help me throw away the box

imho, if the content is 4K... sitting near is ok but like what Pete said, you dont want to move your head around too much just to see the content.

Watching SDR content like Chnl 8 on this TV is very painful
