OK, so there's a lot of information out there about 4K TVs, home cinemas, amps, speakers etc. I think I've got a basic overall understanding of what I need/want, but I'm still a novice at this, so would like to see what you guys have to say
The plan is to connect a 4K TV, AV receiver/AMP, 7.1 speakers and PC. I may connect some other stuff later. Do any of you guys have or are planning to setup something like this?
If so what sort of configuration do you have?
What has your experience been like?
Any unforeseen problems?
I think my PC is powerful enough to deliver the 4K content I want, and with the GPU die shrink next year I think there'll be single cards powerful enough to push 4K well. So I'll probably upgrade when they come out.
In terms of other media: streaming 4K via internet and 4K TV broadcasts; I've heard mixed information about this. Seems like reliable 4K content from those sources is a while off, it's almost like the 4K displays are ahead of the content available. Same goes for 4K blue ray players which aren't out yet as far as I can tell.
I think most of my 4K content will be delivered from my PC via games.
Anyway, the TVs I'm looking at include the SAMSUNG SUHD UE65JS9000 and the LG 65EF950V. I think both are really good, but I'm not sure if the OLED is worth the extra and significant premium!
It'd be great if those TVs had a 120/144hz refresh rate, Displayport 1.3 and Adaptive sync, but that sort of technology seems to be restricted to PC monitors at the moment unfortunately.
Also, the 4K TVs are really only 3840x2160 pixels. I thought:
UHD = 3840x2160 pixels
4K = 4096x2160 pixels
Why aren't the 4K TVs 4096x2160 pixels?
Do you guys have any recommendations for AV receiver/AMPs? I've used a Denon amp with Bose speakers before and the setup was quite good. I'd really like a wireless setup this time though; if at all possible I want to avoid wires all over the place as much as possible. Do you think it's possible to get a quality wireless amp and surround sound configuration?
I've saved up for a nice system, so my budget is quite flexible, hoping to get a good festive package deal
