My parents new tv and avr.
Just helped my parents pick out a new 4ktv and avr. As theyre old pioneer died a 2nd time, and theyre 65 mittsubishi projection 1080p tv is long in the tooth.
Went with a LG 55" C8 tv, and a Denon 740 avr., a monoprice articulating wall mount for the C8. Theyre family room where the tv resides will be newly wall mounted by myself. Ill utilize theyre current 5.1 setup, and they have outdoor stereo speaker by theyre inground pool to listen to the Cardinals games or stream Pandora.
Went with the Denon 740 due to getting it new at a low price of 399.99 on sale and its capability to do 5.1 and send 2.0 to zone 2. As well as controll zone 2 via the denon app on a smartphone. They have polk LR towers and CC, theyre side surrounds are in wall sonace, with 10" def tech sub(forget what model?) They dont crank the volume, so...
My parents watch tv via charter spectrum, as well as blurays via theyre current panasonic bluray player. Neither cared for a 4k bluray player. Also they already have a logitech 700 harmony to controll everything.
Any and little tv streaming will be done via smart app built into the C8 via ethernet connection. As I installed a wired AP near the family room tv stand in theyre home. I dont know that theyll even know how to stream on theyre new tv, as both are 70. Lol
