I'm in the market for a new TV + blu-ray + surround sound system as I want to upgrade from a 7 or 8 year old Sony setup and try to refine my setup a bit better.
I currently have a 40 inch Sony TV + a Sony Blu-Ray player & speakers + Freeview box + Chromecast dongle + WDTV Live and I generally cast from my phone to the TV or access downloaded movies etc stored on a WD MY Cloud through the WDTV box.
I currently have my eye on the Sony KD55X8500E Android TV because it has most of my required apps already installed on it, and (I believe) I have the ability to install Kodi on it too so I can stream directly to it. It also has Chromecast built in so I can free up an HDMI port. It doesn't seem to have Freeview though, so I will still obviously need two ports in use - 1 for the Freeview box and 1 for the Blu-Ray player.
I am also looking at the SonyUBPX800 4K Blu Ray Player. It would seem to be a pretty decent player, although there does appear to be a fair amount of duplication with Netflix, YouTube etc available on it too.
What I'm really hoping for is a little bit of advice on whether this is a good combination and what else I should, or need to, add to it to get a decent home theatre set up.
I will mostly be streaming from Netflix etc, playing via Kodi (hopefully) and playing content off my My Cloud device. I may be doing a bit of gaming in the future, but that is entirely dependant on the boss and my negotiation skills, so I'd like to be prepared for adding PS4 into the bargain too.
If anyone has any opinions or recommendations, I'd love to hear them. Looking to spend about $5k max, and have to factor in a 4 year old and a 2 year old, so probably free-standing speakers might be an issue.
