    I was going to caveat (but fine if 7' ceiling). Hard to tell in the photo. All you can see if the light.

    Is there much of a difference in video / audio quality between streaming devices? Assuming you buy the better models and not the cheapest Roku. Roku vs Apple TV vs shield vs Fire stick

    Not mentioned in your post, but every once in a while streaming Netflix from my Chromecast Ultra to my Vizio TV, the color gets all fucked up. Everything is inverted/pink/green. And apparently it's a problem that is specific to netflix/chromecast/vizio combo.

    I think the answer, per usual, is just don't be poor and get an Apple TV.

    I'd say generally, it's not a problem with "quality" you'll notice. Lagginess, or an interface you don't like maybe. But not "quality".

    There are only 2 choices. Apple TV 4K or Nvidia Shield Pro. It depends on which platform you are on. Everything else is a compromise for lower cost.

    Until the latest Apple TV 4K, I would say Nvidia Shield Pro is the best streamer but once they release the A15 version of Apple TV 4K, it's game over.

    And of course, Apple, you give your data to Tim Apple and Google your data get directly whored out.

    I meant 3rd gen Apple TV 4K. In a way, I'll count 2nd gen too. 1st gen Apple TV 4K is about on par with Shield Pro.

    Apple TV is actually the cheaper option of the 2. 128GB storage and 4GB ram for $200. Cheapest Shield Pro if you catch it on sale is $230 with 16GB and 3GB.

    For once, Apple is the budget, better bang for $ option in the field. Probably bc they really want to push hard for Apple TV+ subs.

    Apple TV doesn't work properly with all DV profiles if you care about that.

    I'd get the shield for my main setup and firestick 4k max for secondary.

    I find firesticks to be much smoother than chromecast with gtv.

    Hey gurus, what are your opinions on the Samsung QN90A/90B? Costco was selling 65" + extended warranty for ~1600.

    It’s an impressive TV if you’re ok with not having DV support. It’s the brightest TV I’ve seen, rivals my old Vizio.

    So not exactly a TV but also not worth making a new thread. What would be a good home audio setup to upgrade to if my budget is in the 1-1.5k range but also want it to be relatively minimal looking?

    Currently looking at the Samsung Q990 at Costco on sale for 1400. Wondering if there’s anything else worth considering? I feel like a proper receiver and speaker setup won’t fit nicely into that budget without cutting corners.

    Atmos sound bar?

    Anything minimalistic will either have compromises or high costs.

    Sounds bars are pretty good these days.

    Sonos beam and mini sub. Or beam and two surrounds.

    Have Sonos for all my tvs and it would take a lot to convince me to switch away

    Will sound great:

    I have an arc surrounds and sub in my basement and a beam and same same setup (surrounds and full-size sub) on my main floor and to be honest I cannot tell a difference in the slightest.

    Id looked at Sonos but thought it wouldn’t fit in my budget. The arc seems highly reviewed but can’t really fit a proper sub in the budget. The mini seems to get mixed reviews where it does decent at some frequencies but falls flat at others near the crossover with the soundbar

    I hadn’t looked at the beam though so will check that out

    I have not heard the mini sub so I cannot comment but that is a decent site and I trust their reviews. I got my parents the Ray set for Christmas so I will know then. They don’t listen to music so I was more focused on movies for them haha.

    The arc needs a TV that can pass thru Dolby Atmos (e-ARC) without it it'll perform not much different than the beam as it's just getting 5.1 input.

    Sonos is by far the cleanest setup. Doesn't even look like I have speakers around. I have a Beam, and 2 Ikea Sonos rear speaker lamps on either side of the bed. They're cheap, and they're actually pretty decent lamps. I think the whole setup cost me around $800. Don't have a sub yet, don't think I need it for the bedroom.
