Update of a Pinoneer Kuro
« on: 01 February 2017, 01:03:23 PM »


It is a while since reading through the pages of this site, but always enjoyed reading reviews and was actively involved in calibration as well at one point. However, I have been out of this game for several years so i am unfamiliar with the latest/recent models.

I currently have two Pioneer Kuro plasmas, a 9th Gen Kuro (LD-5090) and a and 428XD. Both are still going strong and are fantastic. Although I have had them for many years, I didn't buy them new, in fact the LX was purchased for a relative song even though it was still being sold and was head and shoulders above other models at the time. The LX is my main screen, but I am moving the 428XD to another room. I want to replace this with something that is going to give me what I have come to expect in terms of picture quality. I believe this means I should be looking at OLED as I don't think LCD will really given me what I'm after, although the cost of the high end OLED units are quite high.

I'm not looking for anything massive, so a 55" screen would be fine. How to the low end OLED screens rank against higher end LCD screens - say in the 1500-2000 range? If anyone has any suggestions, I would like to hear them, although the LG 2017 looks quite interesting.

I watch a lot of movies, but also sport and general TV. Gaming in not a priority. It would appear as though the TV Selector tool on the main site is a little dated now.
