  • LG C8 vs Sony AF9 vs Panasonic FZ802 vs Philips 903 OLED Shootout

    Nov 19, 2018

    Promoted: Philips held their second annual OLED TV Shootout in central London on the 15th of November 2018.
    ?
    AVForums readers and members were invited along to a completely blind test of four of the latest OLED TVs in Calibrated settings set up independently by AVForums. The second part of the test was then done with Philips settings in the Vivid mode and then the votes were counted before the identity of the screen were revealed.
    ?
    The screens used were the LG C8, the Sony AF9, Panasonic FZ802 and Philips OLED903.
    ?
    None of the attendees had been paid to attend or take part. The testing was done in a completely blind set up with the TVs disguised to hide their stands and identifying features and again covered when inputs and sources were changed to further hide any pop menus that may also identify which TV was which.
    ?
    The first section of the testing was done with each TV independently professionally calibrated to Rec.709 and D65 for SDR material, and then in the most accurate HDR settings to DCI-P3 and tracking the PQ EOTF curve correctly. 11 clips were shown and marked by the independent attendees.
    ?
    The second part of the test was set up with Philips picture settings in the Vivid picture mode and the same clips shown again. The same scoring and marking applied to this second part of the shootout.
    ?
    AVForums was on hand to make a video of the evening independent from Philips and gathered the thoughts of some of those who were there about what they had seen.

  • Wharfedale D320 Standmount Speaker Review

    Nov 7, 2018

    We review the Wharfedale D320 Standmount Speaker.

    Part of the D300 range, this is the larger of the two sets of bookshelf speakers (the others being the D310) and cost £199 per pair. They feature drivers and port technology that were designed for the Diamond 11 series and use carefully created crossovers and cabinet design.
