So at 65", go with the LG OLED.
If you want bigger, the 75" FALD Sony 900E is a great value for the money. The first time I saw I was surprised at how good it looks.
Just wanted to close the loop on this discussion and again thank VA_DaveB and the other contributors for helping all of us make informed purchases. In the end, we decided to spend less money on a very acceptable 4K tv with the idea of upgrading in a few years. It seems there are a lot of changes/improvements taking place in the 4K HDR TV market, so waiting a couple more years to spend significant $$ on a leading edge set seemed to be the best strategy for us. We bought the Sony XBR65X900e and found that size to be just fine for our setup and viewing distance (~12-13 feet).
I am still working on its picture settings and the Samsung UBD-KM85C settings to find the best combination. So far, the picture is very nice, even 1080p blu-ray discs up-scaled by the Samsung (to my eye, this works best with the 900e HDMI video range set to auto or limited for 1080p upscaling) look better than the original, a nice bonus!
We did carefully consider and view with multiple sources the Sony 930e, LG OLED65B7A and the Sony A1E OLED. The OLEDs are gorgeous and that viewing angle! If we were spending the big money now, I would have chosen the Sony A1E. I did not see enough difference between the 900e and 930e to justify the $500 price difference, but again, our decision was more price-driven with an eye towards upgrading later.
On a side note, I discovered our Marantz AV7702 processor is not HDMI 2.2 compliant and won't pass 4K HDR video, which is very disappointing. It will pass 4K 60hz when using its internal HDMI upscaling, but it is of course modified from the source material. Oh well, another component to deal with...
Enough rambling. Merry Christmas to everyone and best of luck with your purchase decisions!
