70 something inch OLED at a reasonable price?
2018 highly unlikely
2021 more likely
So really 3-4 more years. By then there will be lots of UHD material available, HDR10+ will be out and the kinks worked out, HDMI 2.1 will have been out for awhile, the HDMI handshake issues folks are having now will likely be less annoying, OPPO may have introduced their 2nd gen UHD BD player...all in all if you want a more seamless upgrade 2020 will be a better time frame.
On the flip side. There is a lot of great UHD BD material now and prices have already dropped, if you can find a deal on an OLED (<$2000) after Thanksgiving you could be enjoying some great UHD now and then wait till 2022 to get an even less expensive 70plus inch OLED, OPPO players hold their value so you could sell one to get newest model that supports the latest HDR/HDMI/HDCP.
The problem I'm having is that going from a 60inch to a 65inch isn't much of a size upgrade and for you its not a size upgrade at all.
- To see how low prices get after Thanksgiving,
- For more stability of the OPPO player inputs
- For UHD streaming devices to mature
- For more money in the bank
OPPO BDP-93, Pioneer Kuro Pro-150FD, Dynaudio 2x BM-12a Mk III Mains, 2x BM 6a Mk II surround, 2x BM 14s Subs, Allan and Heath MixWizard, room is 11'7"x 16'6"x 8" dedicated and treated.
