    I really wanted a great upscaler TV so after reading multiple reviews some putting less importance on what I feel is the only reason to get a 4K now with limited 4K content is the TV's ability to upscale lower resolution content.
    Anyway decided on the Sony XBR55X930D 55-Inch 4K HDR Ultra HD TV (2016 Model). Hope I'm not disappointed pricey for a 55".

    Here was the review that helped make my mind up on the X930D.

    That "930" in the model number refers to the processor. I think that's Sony's best TV processor. Good luck.

    Who did you buy it from?

    Here's the review from the site I used when I bought my 4K set.

    Ordered off Amazon. Still 9 days out for delivery I went ahead and ordered the base 2.1 Sony soundbar with builtin subwoofer
    after reading about the speakers being on the weak side. My AVR is an older Onkyo plus I'm not that critical about sound as I once was.
    I read the review you linked also.

    Nice TV. Looked at that, but the 65" was too tall for my wall unit. So went with a LG OLED. Neighbor has a 2015 SONY and loves it and the picture is very good! Both of us came form panasonic Plasma TVs and loved the SONY picture.

    Its a Sony the link is Samsung. Yes it does come in 75"
    These guys had one for review. Retail has dropped from $7,000 in April down to $6,000 currently on the 75". Way out of my price range and why I ordered the 55" for $1800.

    I'm glad I don't have friends like this user. What a useless hack.

    Thinking about the above post...why can't we get sound that at least equals a sound bar from these very expensive TVs? I've had some really expensive sets (or I should say the MSRP was way up there, I certainly never bought one at that price level) and they were all pretty mediocre as far as sound goes. Why should you have to shell out as much as you did and then have to supplement the sound feature of the TV? I've really never considered this before, I've always used AVRs, but it doesn't seem fair.

    It is simple Rich. People like skinny and light TVs so they can mount them on a wall. Neither of those attributes lends itself to good speakers... :)

    I've been giving this some thought and my first idea would have the TV makers giving up on having the sound system in the TV and just shipping a sound bar with the TV. I have also been seeing some really slim speakers recently. Seems like new technology. But I do realize that new technology is expensive.

    I had a very expensive Sony CRT HD TV before switching to flat screens (MSRP was almost 5 grand, I didn't pay near that price) and had the cover off that one day and was surprised by how many speakers were mounted inside it. It even had a large subwoofer mounted on the back of the tube. Didn't matter, had awful sound and I never used without an AVR hooked up to it.

    I think it be nice if they make monitors with all the same tech as the tvs, I'm assuming that's what you call a tv without speakers. I'd even consider giving up the OTA turner. Never use the speakers in tv or the turner really. Always use AVR.

    Didn't the expensive Vizo reference TV have a separate sound bar?

    Yeah, that's what I'm talking about, monitors. Or what originally was called a monitor, just a stripped down TV. What ever happened to them? I would think they'd be a lot cheaper than a TV with speakers and a tuner and that would allow a soundbar to be added. I know nothing about Vizios.

    That would suck for me. No place for a soundbar on my wall unit. Sound on new LG is pretty decent.

    I gotta admit I've never tried my Samsung 4K set's sound system. I'll have to try it.

    If it sounds like my Sharp's, it will suck!
