Yes, I set the QC35 for pairing (and cut off bluetooth on my phone so they wouldn't pair to that). As I said in my post it came up a weird name 'raptor' so I selected it and it paired. had to fuddle...

After reading Chunon's post I gave my QC35s another try and it did connect and worked. I just have two volume controls to work with. At first I had to cut the TV volume all the way up to hear it...

AFAIK, LG OLEDs will only pair with LG headphones (actually all they make is bluetooth ear buds) or LG soundbars. They use a proprietary form of bluetooth. That is very unfortunate as I'd like to be...

My wife would, that would be a non starter. I can't even run the hdmi from the cable box to the avr. Too much for her to do. She'll watch with just tv speakers when I'm not around and be perfectly...

Search this thread, but it would seem that denon was one of the AVRs that had problems cleanly passing 4k video. I'd avoid the uncertainty and frustration and just go with the two cable approach. ...

The AKM chip in the 203 is excellent. I can't compare it to the 105, but I have a 95 which I've heard some say beats the 105 and also uses ess dacs.

In your situation, I think I'd take the cash from buying a 203 and buy a 4k tv. A 55 inch 4K tv can be had for as little as 500 bucks. Buy a cheap BD player for now and invest in a display.

I'd be willing to bet the manufacturer did a quick settlement with the injured party. Part of that settlement would have been a non-disclosure statement.
