You just want a television, not a ‘Masters’ on TV’s, I get it. Here it is in a nutshell:

Screen Size;
Picture Quality;
Smart TV;
Best TV Brand;

Bigger really is better.
Go for 4K Ultra HD with HDR or 8K QLED with a bigger budget.
A sound bar is good, a soundstage is better, with Dolby Atmos is even better.
Most are smart.
Go for a LG, Sony or Samsung.
That’s your call but you get what you pay for.

Upgrade your audio for an immersive cinematic experience, goosebumps included and create your own home cinema.

These amazingly thin TVs do come with their own internal speakers. But there’s no room at the front, it’s all screen. You can enhance the visual marvel of these TVs by improving the audio with surround sound systems.

In Ambient mode it can mimic the wall behind the TV blending in with your decor (take a photo of the wall with a smartphone and send it to the TV). Or set it to show information, photos or play music. It’s better to think of it as a ‘screensaver’ than a televisions.
