The 58-inch TX-58DX802 sits towards the top of Panasonic’s 2016 TV range, and is nothing if not different. Its 4K/UHD, HDR-capable screen is mounted in a seriously striking easel-type stand. Rather than trying to fit speakers into its slim frame, it ships with an external sound bar.
Colours look absolutely beautiful for most of the time, with both HDR and SDR content. The wide colour gamuts we’re now routinely getting with HDR content are delivered with bags of impact. The addition of the soundbar helps to deliver one of the best out-of-the-box sound performances of any TV in 2016. It’s particularly strong at outputting bass that's far beyond the capability of the speakers built into typical mainstream flat-screen TVs.
With its striking design, seriously impressive sonics and mostly lovely UHD and HDR picture quality, the TX-58DX802 does more than enough to justify its £1,600 asking price.
