    Yes! I own the C9 and CX. Many of us were concerned that LG would leave 2019 and 2020 televisions behind. The C9 and CX are more than capable of handling this enhanced feature. The rumor is that the older models will see this around July or August.

    The July and August dates are indeed rumors. I am concerned about the C9. What's sad is that the C9 has hardware features that the later models don't have. Many argue they're useless but hey, 48gb HDMI 2.1 ports and DTSX is still cool to have. I wish it had some usefulness though. Lol!

    DTS is great especially if you have an HTPC attached directly to the TV, and send the audio back to a good soundbar/AVR via eARC.

    You are absolutely right. I'm still a Blu-Ray guy. In my opinion DTS is more articulate but Dolby Atmos is more immersive. I'm not an Audiophile but am I wrong here?

    In my opinion, both dolby atmos ( the core encoding even without the tons of speakers ) and DTS-HD-master-audio are way better than the standard dolby and dts as sound quality and bitrate. my impression is that they are comparable as quality, the difference is done by the people that create the soundtrack.

    Sweet, I ordered a 48" C1 OLED last week. Wish it would hurry up and get here :p

    Have you tried Dolby Vision ? another feature for people who don't care about image quality, rather than the opposite as you would think.
    What DV does is force colors brightness and contrats they "think" is better for the content, if you try to tweak your tv settings DV forces the opposite completely destroying the picture, in a way you normally can't even do.
    Yet another marketing crap invented to sell new TVs and monitors.

    Even tough I've got 60 4K HDR DV blurays I've never watched one with DV active it just looks worse than manual settings (edit : maybe less than 60 but a lot...)

    I know on my LG 2018/19 it makes the Mandolorian look odd, and there are large black vertical bars on the screen during the dark/black sections of the show. it's very noticeable. Maybe it's user error, but i don't get the bars without Dolby Vision.

    And yet, they still haven't update the web browser in all the 2017 OLED models.

    just googled, plenty of articles on this, apparently several disney releases are SDR in an HDR wrapper, so they get the HDR-10 and DV tags but aren't really

    I'm not a fan of HDR in the 1st place (some skys go from blue to blinding white between the HD and 4k HDR versions) but I had no idea there were fake HDRs out there

    Wondering if it will be worth it to switch from CX to CXI.

    You're doing something wrong in your set up man. If it's really worse, either your TV isn't up to snuff, or you need a professional calibrator. On most new LGs it looks great out of the box, and usually much better than HDR10.
    No.

    meanwhile on monitor master race: brand new 1440p 144hz LCD! with fake HDR!

    LG could end the monitor market with a CX32 but I guess burn in could nuke their factory or something

    HDR is quite fine. We do not all seek HDR for contrast only but also brightness. Tons of monitors out there are brighter than any OLED. Each to their own. If only we could get Dolby Vision. We have the colors and the brightness, but not the absolute black of OLED. (And personally I do not care)

    Blooming, ghosting and actual pixel response times are the reason why there's nothing better than OLED at this moment.

    Colors are meh IMHO. Bland. OLED loses to IPS/VA on this aspect to my eyes. Unless I'm brain damaged. But I agree with you it has the ultimate speed on its operations and image accuracy.

    Well you might want to get your eyes checked at least, because self emitting RGB pixels will beat backlit IPS/VA any day when it comes to colour accuracy and gamut.
