LG or Sony. Can't go wrong. They are 1st or 2nd and swap places year to year.

Samsung, Panasonic and Philips also get very good reviews.
Sharp a bit less.

For quite a long time, I didn't find the newer TVs better than our Kuro.
But since really good 4K TVs are being produced, I have to admit they clearly beat our beloved Pioneers.
Just like FRO, I secretly sometimes hope our Kuro will die to try out a 65" OLED...
I was there for about a year, maybe a bit more. I get it, believe me!

For the audio, I find the "Music" mode works best so far. I've been using it for a couple of weeks now, and I like it. Brightness is set to 15, which does well in my not-so-bright room; I got away with the 10 setting, but on some material thought it should be turned up a bit. Everything related to any audio sync is turned off. In fact, anything I don't need is turned off (or will be, if I find one I missed).

May play with settings more eventually, but I am liking these settings so far.

I have a Panasonic 50” plasma in what used to be my library and is now my wife’s office [I took over my daughter’s bedroom when she graduated and move to NYC for a new job]. In my new room I have an LG OLED 65 CX. The sound on the Panasonic started to go but not the picture so I got my wife a JBL Bluetooth speaker which has worked out great (the LG’s sound mostly comes through KT-120 tubes). The LG’s picture is really incredible. That said, the Panasonic’s picture is not a lesser one. The color is right up there with the LG but the resolution is a big less sharp (not necessarily a bad thing, especially on movies). A really good but imperfect analogy would be comparing really good SS with really good (and non-syruppy) tubes. Neither one is lacking, just a touch different. When I am watching one I don’t feel the need to switch to the other.
