After selling TV's at Best Buy for 5 years I can confidently say people who don't love tech or absolutely love movies don't want to spend over $1k, which is most people.

I think it’s mostly streaming that keeps me from buying an expensive tv. So if I got a $2-4k it’s abilities would be wasted on streaming services with their shitty compression they use. So like you say I just buy the biggest thing I can get for under $1K.

I was lucky enough to snag an 85 inch at Costco for 800$ a couple of years ago.

I will say there are some shows that look absolutely incredible on my OLED and my 75" Sony 4k. Physical discs definitely look better but things like Stranger Things was a completely different experience on my OLED vs the old TV I had in my bedroom back in July

Went into magnolia set to spend 50k and the dude refused to help saying he could make more selling an amp to someone else. Ended up going with a local theater company.

That's weird, was it a Magnolia or Magnolia Design Center? Because the MDC employees make commission the Magnolia Employees don't. But either way a $50k sale (even with different commission rates in different products and brands) wouldn't make you less then "an amp" that employee sounds like a bad employee to me quite honestly
