I'm really interested in the 4K tv. I have a Veon 40" that is pretty good in the picture department but the audio is pretty terrible so I recommend getting a soundbar or surround sound.

I'm in a similar position.  I use a receiver and inwall built in speakers for audio, and soon an Xbox One S for smarts/bluray/youtube etc.

 

 

 

I literally only need a display device.

Accepting that the sound IS terrible by all accounts, how's the picture on a Veon 65" ? I've never seen one in the flesh to check. It's duty would be as a movie room TV connected to a surround system and computer as source but no 4K content.

Yes, pretty much all TV's have crappy sound nowadays, as they've traded that space at the bottom or the sides, where the speakers used to be, for a sleek looking slim bezel surround.

 

They'll then charge you extra for a sound bar, to give you back the speakers and sound you used to get.  Smart financial move really.

 

 

 

The veon though is in a league of it's own in terms of crap sound quality.  It's a standout star in terms of crap sound, so much so that you'd be an idiot to buy them and not have some alternative sound option.  And they're digital coax out only from memory, so you can't just add on any normal sound bar via RCA analogue cables. 

 

Basically, they're a display monitor only and I too would like to know what they're like image quality wise, including the viewing angle tolerance/performance left to right and up and down.

Veons are coax, most soundbars are optical or HDMI ARC only, so as long as you get one with ARC then you are fine on the current veons.

I wonder if they're made in the same Chinese factory as the Veon's?

 

JVC (as in the Japanese JVC) stopped making TV's a few years ago, and the JVC TV's sold by Disk Smith were simply produced by a TV manufacturer in China who licenced the JVC name to help sell product.

 

 

 

 

When I read the OP post, my first thought was that JVC is a well known and good quality brand . 

 

But, if what you say is true, then , this is not the JVC of old.

It's not. JVC have gone the way of Polaroid and other former brands and just license it to any junk merchants to slap on things.

Can you read minds? That's exactly what I had been wondering and it's been answered. I wonder if JVC car audio is from Japan or China

joker97: SO... Is 3D dead?

 

Yes. I know many people that tried it on crappy home LCD shutter glass TVs and were so disappointed in it that gave up on it. Shame since 4k panels mean that there wont be as bad stripes for the polarized ones, but even then, the stripes will still be offensive enough that it would bother me.

Any word on discrete input IR commands on the cheaper /JVC TVs?

Really want that for proper Harmony Remote integration. Without it the remote never really knows where it is.
