Despite its beautiful image, watch out for image retention/burnin on OLED technology.

A new LG OLED at my local BB has developed severe burnin with only a spectacular LG Demo running without any static images. The reddish LG logo on the demo appears for only 10 seconds at the end of the loop & repeats throughout the day; however, there is a very apparent colourful blob right where the LG logo normally appears. Severe screen damage as far as I can see.

From what I've seen, OLED is not for me...

Hmmm... certainly something to consider. Probably a dealbreaker for me given my use. I have my computer hooked up to my TV, so there's a lot of time where the icons along the bottom and the tabs at the top remain the same. I guess that means I won't have to spend as much on a TV, but the downside will be that I won't like the image as much.

I got the shipment notification for my M5HPs today, and they're scheduled to arrive next Wednesday, 10/10. Can't wait!

I believe one of my EP800s may be a v4? When did v4 debut? I ended up getting a replacement in 2015. I think everything else in my system is v3. The M5HPs will be replacing my QS8 side surrounds, and they'll be powered by an ADA1000.

I'm replacing my 80v2 with them. You might want to try the M5s in front to compare them with the LFRs. I'd be curious to know the soundstage size and imaging differences between those two. The v4 came out in June 2014, consisting of albino, aluminum dustcaps and a new tweeter. Since then however there have likely been more refinements to The Family of Curves and hence at least the cross-over. If your 800 has white dust caps and a phase knob, it's v4. I've had my 800 now for almost a year and I still can't say enough about it.

I checked, and yeah, one of mine is a v4. I agree about the EP800. It's been an incredible addition to my HT. I'd recommend it to anyone who can fit it into their budget.

Ha ha, I agree. I've always been jealous of the look of those!

Just curious, what grill colour goes well with HG Rosewood ?

(yeah, yeah, we don't need no stinkin' grills)

The closest I could find was "cool grey" - the combination looked interesting but I couldn't see it fitting with my living room decor.

Is Rosewood veneer plus piano finish the nearest thing to HG Rosewood today ?
