Just got a new Sony 65" Class BRAVIA XR A80J Series OLED 4K UHD Smart Google TV. It was an impulse buy when I was in the store and they have a flash sale. We needed the TV since we sold all the electronics with the house, but I worried all the way home since I normally research things to death before buying.

Very pleasantly surprised. Picture quality is really amazing. I can't comment on C4 integration because that was also sold. When the AppleTV switched to Dolby Vision, it was a "wow" moment.

Not having the SR-260 wand was frustrating... until we got this TV. While the remote is not perfect (no backlighting!), it seems to be the closest thing to a universal remote right out of the box. It is the only remote we use except for voice search on AppleTV. But the Dish hopper, AppleTV and everything else we connect to it seems to get auto-identified and the remote controls it. 

It is a strange mix of Google and Apple. The Airplay 2 in the TV turned my older soundbar into an Airplay 2 speaker. But voice commands to the remote control the TV, which is in HomeKit, so the commands get passed along somehow -- even when it might think it isn't supported. 

Very thin, so we'll see how durable it is.
