After a lot of reading, I settled on a 49” Sony X950H. So naturally we came home with a 55” Samsung Q8DT.
The Samsung was on sale, taking it from more expensive than the Sony, to cheaper, and it looked better. It looked closer to the Sony A8H, which was significantly more expensive. I have more fiddling to do before I’m totally happy with how ours looks, but I guess I shouldn’t get too involved until it’s finished burning in. Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t have RCA out for audio, so I have a Topping E30 DAC headed my way, which even has a remote for volume which will be a nice bonus.
