It’s time to put out an updated list of the tv’s that are great recommendations at different price points. Some of these models are 2016 but don’t worry; they’re still in stock and still punch above their price class.
Quite possibly the nerdiest home theater enthusiast discussion I’ve ever heard but it’s well worth the listen!
Edit: The Samsung HW-K950 has 500 watts, not 250 like I said in the discussion. My comment about the wattage not implying quality still stands though!
A recent article I read stated that by 2020, half of the tv’s in U.S. homes will be 4k. 2020 may seem like a long way off but it takes time for new technology trends to catch on with the general public. TV’s aren’t like other technology such as smartphones and tablets where one might replace them every other year or so. Many people keep their tv until it is outdated or until it just dies.
