Yea I have a 77”GX but I’m going back to Sony. Just not 100% if I should go with the A9G as it has audio eARC issues which is what made me try LG or go down in size to the A8H. Either way, I’m going back to Sony. The LG is good,
but I’m stuck in my ways. My entire set up is Sony and I’ve only ever had Sony TVs and the LG just doesn’t feel right.
That’s a sweet TV. Did you move up in size when you got the LG? If so, do you think 77” is worth the cost?
Perhaps you are more familiar with the menu system on the Sony. Or maybe you like the Sony’s look more than the LG.
I’m more familiar with LG’s webos as I’ve had an LG OLED for 5 years now. I actually worry about my wife trying to operate the Sony menu system. I have an LG C9 that I thought I got a good deal on as a display model from Costco, but when I checked the hours I was disappointed to see 4000 so I’m going to take it back.
The LG’s picture in HDR is sweet. Dolby Vision is awesome. Coming from a 2015 OLED I’m sure I would be happy with either an LG or Sony. But for not much more money than I paid for the C9 I can get a CX with the new panel or an A8H. I’m talking 65” size which is what my old LG was.
I really don’t have any experience with earc. My surround sound system is in limbo. I bought a processor I’ve wanted for years and was saving up for an amp, but then my tv bit the dust. So now the amp is on hold until I figure out what display to get.
I’m just really debating if I should spend the extra cash for the 77” over the 65”. 65” is adequate for my needs. I outlined the 77” on the wall around my 65” to try and visualize if it would be worth the extra $. My eyes say yes, but my wallet says no.
I’m also wondering if the Sony will be as bright as the LG in HDR and Dolby Vision. If so, I would pop for the Sony’s processing. The reviews on the Sony’s Dolby Vision are all over the place. Some say the Sony is dark. Some say it’s dark but the specular highlights are better than the LG. Some say they are so close that it doesn’t matter. All say the Sony’s color is better. If I could walk in a show room and compare them I’m sure making a decision would be easier.
