    Hi - I'm looking to buy:

    - TV (55 inch / 4K)
    - DVD Player (Blu-Ray / with USB input) 4K (probably upscaling) would be a bonus
    - AVR
    - 5.1 speakers

    Budget is £4k. I'm based in the UK.

    Grateful for recommendations for such a "package".

    You should take a look at some of the reviews and existing threads on the forum and decide what you want to designate to each section of your budget first, it's hard otherwise to make recommendations. Some people may want to prioritise sound over picture for example.

    Not just that but generally people who post and read in this section tend not to know much about AVR's or speaker packages so you probably won't get much of a response here compared to the correct section of the forum.

    Here would be a start:
    TVs Reviews | AVForums
    Speaker Reviews, News & Articles | AVForums
    UHD Blu-ray Player Reviews | AVForums
    AV Receiver Reviews | AVForums

    Each of those review sections also have different forum sections where making a different thread for each topic would be better. There are resident experts in each section who have more specialist info.

    Home Cinema Speakers
    Blu-ray & DVD Players & Recorders
    AV Receivers & Amplifiers

    And in the respect of TVs, if you have the room I would seriously recommend looking at 65" instead of 55" as the larger you can go the better and more immersive UHD Blu-Ray's will be. It does depend on your viewing distance though, about 1.2m being optimum from 65" and 1m from 55".

    Should I upgrade? - UHD vs FHD
    My best value TVs, 2017 Edition - there are a few good value options left, mainly the LG 2017 OLEDs.

    Thanks for your post Dodgexander; very helpful. The LG OLED65C7 looks like it would be ideal for me (I prefer the black bezel to the silver one). I've had a quick google and can't seem to find one though ... any ideas, please?

    I believe the C7 was a Currys exclusive and appears to have sold out.

    It wasn't a curry's exclusive, curry's owned the right to advertise it, richer sounds sold the c7 too, as to the op's questions, the sound option all depends on whether you can accommodate large floorstanding speakers, or you're after a lifestyle speaker package that sounds good and doesn't take up much space, like the q acoustic Q7000i or similiar, then it's a case of matching your amp up with your speakers etc, it's a deep rabbit hole but look up reviews and owners threads of any models you're interested in and you'll soon find out the pros and cons

    Richer sounds doing the 65 b7 for £2000 which is an absolute steal plus I would personally much rather buy from them than Currys.

    I’ve been reading from the very knowledgeable people on these forums to come to those conclusions and have my B7 coming Wednesday! (Even though it is a little more that I had originally wanted to spend, its just too good an offer)

    Yep, I would not let the design of the B7 put you off, at that price it would be silly to turn down. That is of course if you designate £2000 to the TV part of your budget.
