75" vs. 82" - Help

Hello guys,

I posted this in the "help me pick an LCD thread" but didn't get much traction. Hoping to get more feedback here.

I need your input on a new TV I need to purchase within the next week. In a bit of a dilemma between TV size and picture quality. I'm looking for at least a 75" TV. Currently considering the Sony 900E 75" or the Samsung MU8000 82". If I purchased the Sony I'd pair it with the 7.1.2 Atmos soundbar, and if I purchased the Samsung I'd pair it with the 3.1.2 Atmos soundbar. Would I be sacrificing that much picture and sound quality with the Samsung? The size in that price range makes it a contender but I don't want to regret sacrificing picture quality. The TV will be used primarily for streaming and sports. Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.

I would recommend going with the 82" MU8000. There is no substitute for size. And this is coming from a very happy owner of a 65" X900e. For your main uses, the MU8000 will perform well.

My humble system:

Sony X900e; Sony UBP-X800; Pioneer Elite BDP-62FD universal blu-ray player; Denon 4300H AVR, Dual PSA S1801's; Monitor Audio Silver RX-6 mains, RX center, and RX surrounds; one pair NHT mini Atmos speakers; Home-built HTPC (Xeon E1230, 16gb RAM, Crucial M500 480gb SSD, GeForce 980Ti, Corsair CX600, CoolerMaster mini-ITX case)
