I replaced my 14 year old Pioneer Elite Pro-1000 HD 50" plasma with a new 55" LG C7 OLED. In the same place, over the mantle. Thing is, the 55" had to be placed about 4" higher and tilts down a few degrees. Of course it is effectively frameless while the old Pioneer had a heavy gloss black frame and was mounted dead flush. We sit on a couch against the wall 12' away.
The result was that with sources heavy to center channel - movies, TV - it markedly changed the ratio of direct to reflected sound. So much so that the reverberations were creating the dreaded "soap opera" effect. Luckily I was able to rearrange some furniture etc. enough to more or less increase the direct sound to restore the balance. I hate to admit it but it took me a day to figure it out. These large frameless TVs can be an acoustic nightmare. Now I'm glad my wife didn't let me buy a 65".
