I think I read every thread on this post, have been so excited for this upgrade as I need to stay within a certain budget. W1070 has been amazing and still puts out a nice picture, but I'm itching for that extra little something now for my Netflix 4K content, Xbox One X, and will need to start shopping for UHD Blu-Rays. Appreciate all your feedback throughout and the excellent level of detail in reviews!

For context I also play my audio quite loud in my setup ... so the fan noise kinda melts away.
My placement is similar. Fan noise on the HT2050 was not noticiable when the speakers were loud. Listening at low volumes was a little tough.
I’m thinking I might actually build a hush box this time. Anyone have some links to decent designs?
