I apologize, I did miss a few additional details... The TV sound will never be on...and there will only be one HDMI cable plugged into it. I route everything through a high end Yamaha receiver. The TV will be on a stand...not hung on the wall. Room is not terribly wide...the person with the worst viewing angle is probably less than 30 degrees. I have heard good things about the Sony's...and am also looking at the lower end OLED's. Still leaning heavily toward this Samsung. I do have a 40" Samsung in the upstairs living room, which I have been very impressed with, which is also influencing this decision.
