Evaluation

The EA9800 expresses a new type of TV with a superb design. Indeed, this is a TV to watch and listen offering us an answer as to how TVs should be. The clear stand underneath the screen makes it look like the screen is standing by itself. The speaker is installed in the stand and the latest technologies are used not only for vision but for sound as well. The word "wonderful" is not enough to describe this beautiful device with a design that encompasses technologies. The back consists of beautiful CFRP. A design without compromise, it is worthy of praise. Its perfection truly attracts us.
