What To Replace My 50" Pioneer PDP-LX508D KURO Plasma With?


Novice Member
Since 2008 my Pioneer plasma has been faultless, and continues to provide stunning pictures.
I am just starting to look at replacements and would appreciate your input as to what is on the market currently that would improve on the picture quality/resolution.
I have a full 5.1 setup (the LX508D being basically a monitor), so the picture quality is my only driver. Not too bothered about the OS either, as I am used to using Roku...

Size-wise, probably 65" but might stretch to 77".

Is it worth changing now, or wait the the Pioneer expires?

Many thanks.

I replaced my fantastic Pioneer KRP-500a with a LG CX77 and have been impressed.

Once I got over the motion issues on the OLED screen, I feel happy and simply put, you get used to the size difference very quickly.

I recommend the biggest size you can afford/accommodate.
