CE Week and Value Electronics are Poised to Crown the New "King of TV"


Today marked the beginning of CE Week 2016, a multi-day technology and consumer electronics event happening in the heart of New York City. This year’s event features wearable electronics, robotics and drones, 3D printers, connected cars, virtual reality, smart home gear, home theater audio and visual gear, and the highly-anticipated Value Electronics 2016 TV Shootout.

MartinLogan, Paradigm/Anthem, JLab Audio, Onkyo, and Pioneer Electronics are the primary suspects representing the audio and home theater segment at the event. According to a source, Onkyo is choosing to only show its Hi-Res DAP, the DP-X1. I recently reviewed this sleek Hi-Res player and found it to be a stellar performer. Onkyo’s sister company, Pioneer, is presenting a much wider variety of products. The company is bringing its newly announced SC-LX501 Elite 7.1 AVR along with the VSX-1131 7.2 AVR, SE-Master 1 and SE-MHR headphones, an assortment of Atmos enabled speakers, the XDP-100R Hi-Res DAP, a turntable, and the SX-N30 2-Channel receiver (which, spoiler alert, I currently have in possession for a future review).

I’m planning on hitting the floor during Wednesday and Thursday show hours to checkout the scene. If you have any questions or product inquiries, please ask them below!

One of the bigger draws to the show is the geeked-out Value Electronics 2016 TV Shootout. For those unfamiliar, this is the preeminent head-to-head television event of the industry, pitting the best flagship televisions against each other in a winner-take-all voting contest. There are currently four televisions confirmed to be in the shootout: LG’s 65-in G6 OLED, Sony’s 75-in X94OD FALD LCD, Samsung’s 78-in KS9800 FALD LCD, and Vizio’s 65-in RS65-B2. Last year, LG’s OLED entry ruled the roost and appears to be ready to reclaim its title as “King of TV.”

The televisions will be compared on the following criteria:
  • Contrast Ratio
  • Peak Brightness
  • Black Level
  • Color Accuracy
  • Color Saturation
  • Motion Resolution
  • Lag Input Time
  • Energy Efficiency

The Shootout will tap into the power of 4K Blu-ray players, a 4K media server, 4K Streaming apps, USB, and a 4K-signal generator. Joel Silver of the Imaging Science Foundation will moderate this year’s event. Silver, in addition to other experts, will calibrate and test the televisions prior to the event. Two short preview shootouts will be held on June 22nd (press and GetGeeked NY members) while two full-length shootouts will be held on June 23rd. I plan on being in attendance both days and will deliver a full-featured article detailing the event’s results.

I think the Sony is the 75" X940D. Looking forward to the results of this shootout.

Yes. Thanks for pointing out that error.

With "Smart Technology," I think it should be included as well to some extent. My experience is that "Smart Features" are only as smart as designed. Kinda like Samsung not contracting with Adobe for the Flash player. That's a big deal & a true game breaker! Picture alone is not enough.

Great point, Quenten. While the shootout is purely focused on the best video image, I'll see if they considered including Smart Tech.

It would be nice to know how everybody's "Smart Tech" compares. Maybe a good evaluation/comparisons for one of our mods.

I know I was very disappointed when my Samsung didn't have Skype (advertised on the box as having it). Then trying to connect to my home network to view a baseball game on ESPN3, and getting the pop-up that I must install Flash Player. Clicking on the download button & it won't load. And Samsung doesn't care. Many complaints about it for several years--no change. A lot of people (including myself) take these things for granted, only to learn the hard way.

OK, I yield the floor! Sorry for the rant.
