High-end home theaters help us bring home our favorite movies, and there’s nothing like a massive 4K TV at the center of it to recreate the silver screen experience at home. OLED TV are some of the most widely acclaimed out there, and today LG unveiled the rest of its 2018 lineup of high-end models at an event in Seoul, Korea.

By many accounts, LG is one of the most renowned manufacturers of OLED TVs on the market. And with today’s announcement, it has just bolstered its lineup with 4 new top of the line OLED TVs.

All of the recently unveiled OLED TVs boast the latest Alpha 9 processor that allows them to output some of the most vivid colors and visuals on the market, or so says LG. They also feature built-in Dolby Atmos sound systems alongside LG’s new ThinQ AI platform to search for content and that allows the TVs to control smart home products around your home like lights, speakers and even robotic vacuum cleaners.

At the top of the line is LG’s W8 Series. It packs an extremely thin form factor that barely protrudes from the wall and is accompanied by an external device that handles picture processing and audio output thanks to motorized slide-out speakers at an equally impressive $14,999.99 price tag for a 77-inch TV. Next in class is the G8 Series, which utilizes a unique design that mounts the image on an ultra-thin glass backplate deemed One Glass. It too relies on an additional soundbar and input box and enters at $5,499 for the 65-inch model.

The E8 Series is next in line and comes packed with the same array of internals as the 2 more expensive models, but with a different design. Thanks to the LG’s picture on glass technique, the TV can keep a slim profile while achieving the same visual quality. It starts at $3,499 for the 55-inch. At the lowest end, the C8 Series is the most affordable of the bunch. It lacks the picture on glass design, but includes the same feature set as the other models at its 55-inch $3,000 entry price.

Even at a starting price of $3,000, that isn’t cheap for a TV. But as far as LG’s high-end OLED models go, the C8 Series enters as the least expensive to date. We routinely see LG’s OLED TV on sale over the Black Friday holiday season, but if you’re looking to pick up one of the latest and greatest, it’s never been more affordable. Many of the new models are slated to be released sometime this month.
