Anything better than Pioneer Kuro today?
Posted by: HansW on 07 August 2017
I am thinking about replacing my Pioneer Kuro 42 inch plasma with a 55 inch Oled TV and would appreciate anyones experience from making this move.
The Kuro was the first flat screen panel that I thought surpassed my old Sony Triniton CRT set. At the time I found LCD screens poor in comparison, especially on fast motion and regarding contrast. Technology has moved on and I would like to buy a new bigger TV but only if picture quality is definetly better. Until now I have generally found other brands and technologies overly bright, tiring and unnatural ( perhaps not much helped by retailers' wanting to impress with overly bright settings).
Recently I have been very impressed by Loewe Bild 7, LG and a new Sony Oled TV. The question however how they are to live with over time. All that impresses at a store may not work over time at home. I would therefore appreciate any input from anyone who has made the move.
A key aspect for our family is also the user interface. We are now using an Apple TV, which is very user friendly, an Oppo 105 and a hard disk recorder. In addition to fre view channels we have Netflix and would like to add HBO. If all this can be integrated into the set it would be a great advantage. We are not prepared to accept a poor UI, on the contrary, we are prepared to pay a significant premium for user friendlyness and a neat set-up without to many boxes, cables or remotes.
