    • Port Call - Movie AND disc review   This is an effort by Philip Yung, and stars a rather different looking Aaron Kwok, who even got thinner, dyed his hair to complete the look. Very different from the slick cops seen in the recent cop shows. No Mainland money in this one.  He investigates a murder of a young prostitute, played by a newcomer Jessie Li.   Whilst I commend the acting efforts of everyone, in particular Micheal Ning, who plays the murderer that confesses to the crime, I can't understand the plot or follow the story. It isn't the gore, or even the sex scenes, I don't find them particularly distasteful or anything like that, it's just that I don't get the plot   It's a talkie, so there's minimal surround use. The dialogue is clear, the picture quality is excellent, but it's no demo disc..   Can't wrap my head around this ... even though it was well received at the Golden Horse Awards 2015.    Watch it for yourself and decide.
    • New price for a quick sale. $750  i can also ship it if you can arrange courier to pick it up. thanks
    • If you were getting a reflection you would not get two channel sevens....DVB is used for that very reason, it handles multi-path very well.
    • Hi Guys, Currently designing our brand new house with a custom builder. I currently have penciled in a home theatre which is 4.4m wide by 6m deep. Directly behind the screen wall is the study and planning on having all AV gear in the study. I have a full Krix 7.2 surround sound on layby. Neuphonix x2, Epicentrix, Dynamic surrounds x4, Seismix 3 x2. I have this matched with the new Yamaha Aventage 3060. Planning on having a 4 seater home theatre lounge at about 3.7m wide leaving 350mm on either side. I was planning on having a 140" 16/9 screen run by an optima hd50. are there any other projectors for that price point i should consider? also is 140" too large for that size room? How far off the back wall should i have the couch? Is it worth adding 2 in ceiling speakers for Atmos? Any other opinions would be great. I am still in the design stage so if I require more room it can be done. I have attached the house design as it stands atm. Thanks in advance Front_Bedroom_Design_with_pool_at_back.pdf
