Yeah i never had a drama with my plasma the only annoying thing i could fault was the heat output. In winter it was great, in summer couldn't watch the tv without the aircon cranking.. I have no doubt the new 4k tvs are beautiful running demo loops and UHD blurays. But plasmas tend to look great all round, SD , Hd, free to air. sports... I have a samsung 4k lcd in my lounge room while it looks good i dont sit and go WOW like i did with my plasma..
I have had issues with Samsung LCD's for years mostly with the 1080i feed from foxtel.In previous years no matter what setting in the custom de judder i tried fast moving balls would always generate artifacts around them.Then there was the micro stutter problem where every 30 seconds or so the frames would go out of sync for like .03 of a second.Very annoying border line unwatchable.This year with the KU6000 i have the auto motion set to custom and de judder at 4 and i don't have problems with the ball tearing up any more.I have still spotted the odd micro stutter on foxtel 1080i but it is infrequent and mostly happens when i change channels.Well done Samsung on finally addressing some annoying issues but it took you how many years?For anyone who doesn't know what i mean by micro stutter got to the foxtel news channel at 1080i and look at the text scrolling along the ticker.If it is not smooth continuous text and sometimes jumps and blurs that is micro stutter.
Were they recorded with any noise reduction from your midi desk ? Dolby B or C ? A 2nd hand one will drop the noise 10db or more for the high frequencies . If not there may be a pc programme that will denoise them depending on the quality of the original tape - Fe ;Cr ;Me ? Metal holding a higher db level so likely a lower noise floor ; did you ride the levels to the overload point hopefully ?
good luck ; I still have a yamaha dual auto reverse deck that WILL be used again said the hoarder
aah ; good stuff ; technology doesnt stand still does it ; even lcd as someone said profoundly once
Sound like an eager candidate for the driverless cars that are coming Nah i love manuals ; more gears the better ..
