”This LG 4K OLED is a superb all-rounder.”– ‘What Hi-Fi’ 2018 Product of the Year award winner.

OLED – the TV gold standard
Highly developed by LG, OLED TV technology remains at the forefront of image quality. Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) TV offers the most advanced picture quality currently available. Unlike LED screens, OLED doesn't require backlighting, so the colour is consistent right across the screen, with greatly enhanced contrast levels.

Alpha 9 processor – a new reference in picture processing
New to this exciting LG TV is the powerful Alpha 9 processor. With increased processing power, Alpha 9 enhances motion handling for smoother images. Object-based contrast is also improved, giving sharper, more detailed images. With Alpha 9 you’ll see images with truer realism than ever.

True Colour Accuracy Pro
For even greater realism, True Colour Accuracy Pro increases the amount of data points for colour. This makes flesh tones more accurate, landscapes more natural and animations more vivid. No matter what the genre, True Colour Accuracy makes it more life-like than ever.

The widest range of HDR support with Active HDR
LG continue their wide range of HDR support with this flexible TV. Advanced HDR by Technicolor offers reference levels of image and colour accuracy. As well as Advanced HDR, this 55" LG TV also offers decoding for HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision. HDR10 is widely used on UHD gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma HDR) is a broadcast and user generated standard format that is set to become the standard for transmitting 4K signals.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Dolby vision-equipped TVs, like this LG, can decode both generic HDR content and content that's specifically been encoded in Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

High Frame Rate Support via OTT*
High Frame Rate (HFR) support at up to 4K/120fps means the potential for smoother images with incredibly realism. With a variety of films filmed in HFR since the ground-breaking The Hobbit of 2012, this is the future of movie technology. The technology is also available on some TV shows and is especially impressive with sport. *OTT means that HFR is supported Over The Top using apps such as Netflix 4K. It is not available via HDMI inputs on this TV.

Part of the unique ThinQ AI system for effortless control
LG’s unique artificial intelligence system brings together a wide range of products under intuitive control. For your TV this means intelligent voice control and the ability to seamlessly work with third party services from Google and Amazon. The more LG ThinQ AI products you have around the home the more seamless and integrated the control becomes.

webOS Smart system now with Google Assistant
The award-winning LG webOS smart TV system is already one of the most highly-rated in the industry. Powerful but user-friendly, webOS makes Smart TV even smarter. Now featuring Google Assistant, webOS just got even better. Google Assistant is capable of changing the channel and input via voice command. It also integrates with services such as Google Photos and Google Maps to make your TV an even greater source of entertainment.

Freeview Play makes catch-up TV easy. Find programmes from BBC iPlayer, the ITV Hub, All4 and Demand 5 sitting alongside over 60TV Channels and up to 15 HD channels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Faultless picture, Smart TV features outstanding I've been a customer with Richer Sounds for 18 years and have always trusted the no nonsense recommendations. This LG TV was on my shopping list, but I was unsure, but after owning this TV since Christmas I can tell you it surpasses all expectations. Faultless picture, no motion lag, Smart TV features are the fastest I've seen and very intuitive. I highly recommend this TV it's an all round winning

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great television. Had this TV about two weeks now and I am still blown away by the quality of the picture, the improvement from Dolby Vision is incredible, I own Pacific rim on Blu-ray but I watched it on Netflix through the TV and that was my first time experiencing Dolby Vision, it was incredible and only 1080p. Makes me want to watch all of my films all over again. I don't have the stand fitted as it is on the wall but I can safely say that the downward firing sound from the TV isn't noticeably hindered by it. In fact I think the sound is pretty bloody good. Overall no regrets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just a stunning product Bought this product after weighing up between the B8 and C9. There's little different in picture quality, but I decided to plump for this one to take advantage of the A9 processor. The whole family are stunned by the picture, and the ease with which we can switch between TV, Netflix, Amazon and YouTube content. The latter three have amazing picture quality in 4K. Definitely recommend the TV, and also searching out the optimum picture settings online ( have a google!) I'm hoping the picture will be "set and forget" as there are loads of options to plough through! Very pleased overall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous television! I did a lot of research before committing to this purchase, but genuinely didn’t expect to be so blown away with the quality of the picture. I have paired it with an LG sound bar and sub; the combination is outstanding! This has been my first departure from a Sony television for about 20 years and I’m so pleased that I went with the reviews and guidance from the Richer Sounds telesales team (Vic, in particular)...the usual first-rate service; thank you guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Purchase I've been looking to upgrade from a 7 year old 37in Sony Bravia since the middle of last year. After a lot of research and shopping around I settled on this TV. Tuning the TV and setting up the Apps was easy, just click on them and log in. Netflix detected I now had a 4k TV and straight away stung me for an extra £2 a month for the 4K service. Picture is excellent on 4k service Netflix and Amazon Prime. Upscaling appears good so far from TV aerial signal and NOWTV. Stepson was initially unhappy with the Xbox One picture but as soon as the TV was set to game mode this seemed to sort itself out. It's not one of the latest Xbox S or X so it's not 4k so it is the TV doing the work here. I can't comment on the sound from the TV as I'm using a Sonos Beam (so it sounds great). The Beam sits nicely in front of the TV without obscuring any of the screen. Three of the other TVs I looked (Sony AF8, AF9 and a Panasonic OLED) at had very low stands so the Beam would obscure the screen. Be warned it is a 2 person job to remove the tv from the box without damaging the panel and a 2 person job to move the tv around. Finally a word on the staff in Preston. Friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Never pushy on sales, and I know, I have been looking since June 2017.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture can not fault it Having been a customer for many years and spent not hundreds but thousand of £s with you ,and even in the last 2 weeks have bought two TVs from you must say something of the excellent way I have been treated ,can not fault the service or the product knowledge of the staff
