LG's new flexible panel Signature OLED TV R (65R9) rolls up in its cabinet to render your living space less of a shrine to the pixel.
Samsung will ship 8K QLED TVs, as well as a 75-inch microLED TV to complement the humongous new 219-inch microLED "The Wall" modular TV.
LG will ship its first 8K UHD OLED and LCD TVs in 2019, and nearly all will get a boost in processing power. Two-fold in some instances.
The Shure SE535 deliver luxurious performance at a starting price of $449. Adding the optional RMCE-BT2 module delivers Bluetooth 5 and aptX HD support for 24-bit audio, but adds another $149 to your bill of sale.
The weatherized Soundcast VG5 pumps out the bass that's so often lacking in outdoor speakers. But it's truly for outdoor or large spaces, not the average indoor space.
LG prempts CES with announcements of three new soundbars that support Dolby Atmos and DTS:X surround, plus Google Assistant integration.
Sony's XBR65A9 65-inch 4K UHD OLED TV offers great color, excellent blacks, and wonderful HDR. It also offers the best sound in a flat-panel TV, bar none. The only problem is that there's a significantly cheaper, but highly worthy competitor in the LG's E8 series.
Kudos to Marley for using recycled materials in the No Bounds XL waterproof Bluetooth speaker. But its sounds mediocre at low volumes, and only average when you crank it.
LG's 55-inch OLED smart TV is simply one of the best TVs money can buy. It delivers luxurious color, real blacks, smooth motion, and the best interface and remote in the business.
Sony's XBR X900F can handle just about any kind of material with aplomb, including HDR. But its color palette is subdued and light bleed on black backgrounds is noticeable with the Xtended Dynamic Range function engaged.
It doesn't come with the One Connect breakout box you get with the Q9FN, but it offers nearly the same performance as higher-end model for $700 less.
Fluance's Ai40's are affordable Bluetooth bookshelf speakers that sound great thanks to subtle psychoacoustic tricks applied by a DSP.
This smart TV shines with HDR, but Vizio's new array backlighting is more prone to artifacts and there are holdover processing glitches from last year.
You'll pay extra for the branding, but this is a strong and well-designed speaker, even it it isn't built by the company famous for its "Marshall stack."
The H9E Plus is the most affordable 120Hz TV we've seen, and the extra 60Hz do make for about the smoothest motion in its class. But HDR still doesn't pop as with some similarly-priced models.
