Studios also use full range speakers on all of them. There is no need for LFE re-direct. If you value audio quality so much, you should do the same. LFE re-direct is a compromise.

Yes. But this thread is only for older EA9800. Can't say for sure for newer LG OLED TVs that you can actually purchase in stores. But I don't think any reason they won't be.

The common issue with laptop lockup is heat related because of the tight space. I normally use 8GB on all my PCs. 16GB is most I will use. RAM is not exactly cheap these days.
