Have You Finished Your AV Shopping?

A couple weeks ago we asked about your top AV gift pick for 2014 and learned that TV topped the list for four in ten of those polled. 4K/Ultra HD netted the most votes at 22 percent, followed by OLED with 15 percent and plain old 1080p LCD/LED at just 4 percent.
