    Excellent video !!! Just a kind suggestion vincent, it would be great if you could do a comparison video between the A1, EZ1000 on standard definition content ! Which tv scales better? Which oled tv is more punishing on standard def content. Hope you can do one such video, will be fantastic to help make a decision on which tv to buy !

  2. Rich Aquila on January 11, 2021 at 3:13 am

    Vincent, I have a kuro Pioneer Elite 60 plasma what tv today is compared to mine? Looking to upgrade soon.

  3. Pier-Paolo Morbidelli on January 11, 2021 at 3:14 am

    I trust only the judgment of Vincent who was there to listen to everyone and 3. Vincent if you are listening I would like a description of your 3 differences, thank you. paolo from italy (Vincent is the best and I only trust his judgment)

  4. Diamondragan on January 11, 2021 at 3:14 am

    They all suck! It sounds like some guy is holding a microphone up to the TVs instead of a real audio system.

    I’m watching on my cell phone at max volume without headphones.

  5. TekReviews on January 11, 2021 at 3:16 am

    Our school systems are so bad they don’t teach common sense, they should take your recommendation’s based on you are standing in front of the tv sets and conveying their pro’s and con’s to us. After that they should go to a local Best Buy store and look at the unit’s side by side if possible to see which one looks better to them, and also take into consideration the pro’s and con’s of your reviews. Sometimes you just have to ignore the lazy/stupid people who comment whining.

  6. Baby Jocko on January 11, 2021 at 3:18 am

    The Loewe (whatever that is) sounded best to me. It looks pretty cool, too. Perhaps they should sell their TVs in the US.

  7. KHILADI on January 11, 2021 at 3:18 am

    Which one did you like the most?

  8. Joe on January 11, 2021 at 3:22 am

    It’s ironic that he’s a "calibrator" but he doesn’t have the audio synced to the video.

  9. Paw Larsen on January 11, 2021 at 3:23 am

    Hehe.. love this guy!

  10. サテライトnsf on January 11, 2021 at 3:26 am

    Should’ve gotten a binaural microphone.

  11. läkerol on January 11, 2021 at 3:28 am

    Very interesting. I would rank 1. Sony 2. Loewe and 3. Panasonic, based on the video. Perhaps in real life it’s different. My equipment is a USB headphone dac/amp and Sennheiser HD650.

  12. Ziyu Guo on January 11, 2021 at 3:29 am

    hahaha brilliant idea this video is savage

  13. Matt X on January 11, 2021 at 3:29 am

    Only an idiot uses in built audio when paying a premium for visual screen quality.

  14. MaZEEZaM on January 11, 2021 at 3:30 am

    Obviously we can’t tell through YouTube but I genuinely am interested in your opinion of which of the leading OLED and LED LCD’s tv’s sound best. Also you don’t seem to review the leading LED LCD’s tv’s very often, it would be nice to see more reviews of them because the quality Oled’s may be outside our budget or we may have a preference for the top LED LCD’s instead.

  15. ntube7 on January 11, 2021 at 3:31 am

    It seems strange that Vincent does not tell us which TV he thought sounded the best. He doesn’t have the excuse of listening to something through a microphone that’s then filtered through a laptop/headphones, he was in the room and could use his own ears!

  16. Zaheer Kader on January 11, 2021 at 3:34 am

    This was a funny one! Point made! 🤣

  17. VL Ly on January 11, 2021 at 3:35 am

    Who the hell is buying loewe…

  18. Jun Kan on January 11, 2021 at 3:35 am

    I played this video with surround speakers and the subwoofer…and it seems like that lg tv has more bass sound on its speakers…

  19. Jeff Shields on January 11, 2021 at 3:36 am

    heard them in person, don’t live up to hype… Less expsive LG c7 or e7  just as good 1/2 the price… can’t tell difference.. but then again I can’t tell difference between $10 & $15 wine….

  20. Raptor on January 11, 2021 at 3:36 am

    How about YOU tell us which TV sounds better to you champ.

  21. SmoothCriminal on January 11, 2021 at 3:38 am

    Personally I don’t care about sound cause if you have a tv like that definitely you need a sound system.

  22. patrick B on January 11, 2021 at 3:40 am

    let me ask you a question and please give me an honest opinion what do you think about LG and Samsung about the quality is there a bit quality difference between those two Brands whit Panasonic and Sony what I believe as a customer no one can beat Japanese Electronics I think Samsung is real crap and LG is a little better but nothing beats Panasonic and Sony what is your opinion

  23. Elfman12 on January 11, 2021 at 3:40 am

    HAHAHA! Nice. I so dig this channel.

  24. Toby Port on January 11, 2021 at 3:42 am

    skip till 10:10 to save yourself a week of explainations

  25. Always VIRAL on January 11, 2021 at 3:44 am

    whats the lowe tvs picture quality like compared to the panasonic oled?

  26. Not Today! on January 11, 2021 at 3:46 am

    10:21 sony a1
    12:21 leowe bild 7
    14:23 Panasonic ez1002
    Thanks 👍

  27. carlcat on January 11, 2021 at 3:46 am

    I couldn’t tell the difference. It would have been more helpful if you included 3 judges to listen and give their opinions. Without the LG, a sound comparison is not that helpful, especially in the U.S

  28. manu1love on January 11, 2021 at 3:46 am

    Basicly I found that it depends on the way that the programme was braudcasted I had a option watching football saying watch it in uhd when I did it was awful worse than sd so watched it on hd so basicly thare idea of uhd was poor meaning they braudcasted it poorly

  29. Tachibana Hasegawa on January 11, 2021 at 3:47 am

    Pana – SONIC是美聲的含義

  30. michigan1777 on January 11, 2021 at 3:47 am

    you should have used binaural headphones

  31. AV Maniacos on January 11, 2021 at 3:47 am

    2-BIL 7

  32. Anders Ljungberg on January 11, 2021 at 3:48 am

    You may want to test sound projectors

  33. S Gals on January 11, 2021 at 3:48 am

    They all suck at reproducing sound. Buy a separate system. THE END! 😜

  34. Kenneth Stidsen on January 11, 2021 at 3:49 am

    try binaural microphones next 😉 very good explanation thoug

  35. dave koh on January 11, 2021 at 3:53 am

    Listen to the word "city" spoken by WW. It’s more distinct on the Loewe

  36. Mr. bonus on January 11, 2021 at 3:57 am

    75inch 940e, 65inch a1e or 65inch z9D.(can’t afford the 75inch)

    Viewing distance is 8-10 feet coming from a 10 year old 50inch Panasonic plasma. What would you choose and why?

  37. Beni Reges on January 11, 2021 at 3:59 am

    1. TV in the middle
    2. Panasonic
    3. Sony

  38. Akash Sharma on January 11, 2021 at 3:59 am

    9+ minutes of just blabbering

  39. mamucas chingon on January 11, 2021 at 4:00 am

    The Panasonic had the better sound but it’s logical, this is how I know most people here are full of shit, the sony is only capable of mono sound, while the panasonic is on stereo, as a matter of fact the sony was the worse on sound quality, yes it’s acoustic surface is cutting edge but by no means sounds better, maybe in the future but as of now as far as sound delivery is last then again everybody uses sound systems so the true test should be on picture quality.
    But, sound alone, Panasonic hands down. Just my two cents.

  41. Chronicles of K. Toyoda on January 11, 2021 at 4:03 am

    Honestly the point of the video is that you should judge AV quality in person as you just won’t be hearing the same thing over the internet.

    With that said, Sony seemed to have hardier bass and let Batman sounds like Batman, the middle TV seemed mediumish, and the Panasonic had alright bass, better than the middle TV but had some weird reverb to it that even made Batman sound less Batman, and in all honesty all these differences could be simply down to room placement among other variables.

    So again none of what I said or others will say matters much as you simply need to be there in person. The one takeaway here is that the tech Sony is using did prove its concept so I am impressed that it’s at least at the same level of conventional speakers if not possibly better.

  42. Rob J.K on January 11, 2021 at 4:03 am

    A truly useless demonstration. Why did I just waste 16 minutes of my life listening to a demonstration of why sound can’t be evaluated through a microphone? I already knew that video can’t be graded through a camera lens. A one sentence explanation would have sufficed. I would still like to know which set sounded better through your own ears!

  43. Dave Mckeown on January 11, 2021 at 4:03 am

    The Panasonic for me in terms of clarity. The Sony has more bottom end but the stupid design of the stand and the lean back would do my brains in.

  44. Sven Veader on January 11, 2021 at 4:04 am

    the sound quality is the most important aspect of these TVs!

  45. R M on January 11, 2021 at 4:05 am

    it is very difficult for us to judge the sound on a pc. But the Löwe should outperform the Sony and the Panasonic as the Bild 7 has more power and should produce a cleaner bass.

  46. Counterpunch Fortress Maximus on January 11, 2021 at 4:07 am

    I’m such an autist…

    *What is he doing? The parameters for this test are all wrong!
    *This microphone looks like a dynamic cardioid. A condenser mic should be used for this sort of thing.
    *Whatever is being used as a mic processor is probably coloring the audio, throwing it off even more.
    *The mic should be held closer to the sound source, it won’t pick up the audio accurately at all from that distance at all.
    *The different angle of the sources is going to cause different audio reflections in the room.
    *The surfaces they’re placed on, which are all different, is another factor.
    *My IEMs have a warm mid-range, I should be keeping that in mind.
    *Oh yeah, I also customized my equalizer on my soundcard, so it’s not flat. Maybe I should undo that temporarily.
    *I wonder if I could find a frequency response graph for his microphone.


    Oh wait, this whole thing is satire.

  47. according2plan74 on January 11, 2021 at 4:08 am

    I wish the EZ1002 was available in the states, I want that TV!

  48. praxis22 on January 11, 2021 at 4:08 am

    I own a KD65-A1, currently slaved to the XM3 cans by Bluetooth. Going by what I heard I’d give it to the mechanical soundbar, as the highs were better.

    That said I’m also an audio hobbyist, and I’ve experienced the majesty that is BladeRunner 2049 on the A1 at volume up close. The 3D nature of the sound is impressive. I also get the sarcasm and the point, tribalism will out regardless.

  49. Ali Aziz on January 11, 2021 at 4:10 am

    The Winner: SONY😎

  50. Anders Ljungberg on January 11, 2021 at 4:10 am

    Do you mean that a 4K camcorder today can not provide good light dynamics
