JB just had a 20% off sale on the weekend. Finished now. Probably have to wait until the Black Friday sales end of Nov for similar pricing to come around again.

20% would not bring it down to $3850, need a lot more.

80% of 4250 is 3400

Nice, so $3500 is achievable in a few weeks if we are patient.

The 55" has been as low as $2240 via Bing Lee eBay sale recently (this month). The 65" was $3840.

Those prices are roughly $600-800 lower than similar sales on 2016 models last year.

So they are going down year after year, nice.

Boxing day sale would probably be the best time to buy.

 

What month do they usually release new models ?

New models are always announced at the CES show in early Jan each year.

Those new models arrive at the earliest in Australia around the following June, sales usually start on current models [depending on just how many of any particular model are in the warehouses ] around late April, early May each year.

It's been like this for the last decade at least.

That’s very helpful, so do they discontinue the older models or have them selling for a hugely discounted price for many more years

Usually if a new model is released it's a replacement for a current one, and if they replace one, they usually replace all the models in that particular range.

 

Some ranges of TV can stay in a manufacturers catalogue for a few years before they are replaced with a new model, IMHO it's those TV's that are best to buy when being discontinued, mainly because it is far more likely to be able to get it repaired if something does go amiss with it, just because in theory at least, it's far more probable that there will be spare parts available for it, where a TV that is only in a manufacturers catalogue for a year, won't.

Plus the fact that there is bound to be some feedback from owners of that model TV somewhere on the net, so if it's a dud, you'll be able to find out about it.

 

It depends on what the manufacturers see as any particular range of TV's needing a revamp, sometimes a range of TV's will be replaced purely on a change of cosmetics and very little to nothing being changed with the actual screen or electronics.

Other times, like Sony's 2017 models, it was basically dropping 3D support on all their TV's, and them bringing out OLED models, [something you won't be seeing Samsung doing any time soon]

The sound bar would need a dolby atmos decoder Mike and multiple speakers to do the object audio steering decently so unfortunately they don't come that cheap considering the bass management needed as well . I would go  for a ce that has years of experience in this dsp field like Yamaha but the ysp-5600 is too dear .

If you don't have some spare ac sockets for wireless surrounds you may try the entry level Samsung depending on price but the surrounds are something to get imho ;) Does it go in a cabinet when you say tight space ? that would rule out the reflecting drivers..

Always better to go with a component avr like the onkyo rather than a compromise sound bar which has to align drivers in a set fashion :winky: With an avr you can buy speakers from a ce that specializes and doesn't do everything fairly well rather than 1 thing better .. ceiling speakers are a plus over reflecting ones from the front of the room too..

You just need some passive speakers [ do you have any small 2 ways ? ] and it will drive a

3.1.2-Channel Dolby Atmos®* and DTS:X™

speaker system with more watts/ch than most sound bars :) Not to mention switching your UHD sources with its hdmi 2.0a inputs

Soundbars are just another fad that electronics companies have invented in there heads to try and generate income.In reality people living in small spaces need to get a good amplifier and good quality high performance small speakers to kick every soundbar ever hawked by a snake oil salesman from @sehole to breakfast time.
