  1. Prometheus in 4K

    great to hear. i have on uhd and cant wait to watch before covenant.... big fan of prometheus so interested to see what they have done with this re master. has great source ... though a 2K intermediate... there is still plenty of goodness to work with and possibly we will see the 2k in all its glory for first time. let alone what HDR and wcg brings to party
  2. Should i go 5.1.2 or 5.1.4

    I see, ! thanks for headsup, I wasnt sure what suddenly was changing train of thought, but yeah silly me ... I now see the date hehe yes hopefully mind now made up
  3. Should i go 5.1.2 or 5.1.4

    I think as everyone has menrtioned with 2m behind you 4m ahead you have quite enough room for .4 to spread all height speakers and surrounds around listening are i would do it, no idea what it is conflicting you feel means you shouldn't ?
  4. buggered if I can pick any difference, it has the minor change the Xx500 series added. I think the refresh or update or what ever isn't due till end of month with IFA anyways.
  5. interesting, i'll ask on avs, but this looks like a VERY mini refresh perhaps to tide things over till the 8000 ? or something hehe
  6. Projector Or Large OLED TV

    definitely the most ideal if can throw on a wall, and great suggestion if an option for @Slightlyforward then definitely do e.g. if getting the jvc first. the way can run a bit of material e.g. fta, dvd, blu-ray streamed stuff uhd what ever plan to run on the system make sure to satisfaction and something comfortable with. can also experiment with screen position nd all that and yes hopefully guy a lot of this stuff is very much down to peoples own needs likes etc so while the charts and rules of thumbs etc are all good and well, how people find it in end all that counts !
  7. Projector Or Large OLED TV

    jvc will be fine they are great units for the money, re the centre speaker, just cautioning to not drop it too far down, have seen some systems where centre speakers ends up so low its firing at shins ! you can angle speakers but sounds still end up coming from source to great extent, our ears localise very well. so try keep it up there
  8. Projector Or Large OLED TV

    thats something else with screen sizes though, 100" THX recommend distance for immersion 3041mm one of the reasons suggesting this as a max. keeping in mind even with screen that size, for vertical viewing angle or 15 deg you'd need to sit at at 4757mm the larger you go for screen the lower will bottom of it will need to go otherwise will end up with a crook neck looking up ! either way the recommendation of vertical viewing angle is 15-20 degrees. we can cope wiht more but you dont want to push it too much. gong bottom of screen 600mm is likely going to mean where does your centre speaker end up ? its better than having centre pointing at your shins and will have to angle up to improve positioning. all that said some people end up with the centre speaker on the floor and you will be in a much better situation than that for best pans across the front you want your centre and mains tweeters around the same height or at most 100-200mm off at most. the jvcs are good, i run one but the concern is source material...whcih unless pristine when you are over resolving you just see more artefacts !
  9. Projector Or Large OLED TV

    looks perfect I would say go for it just on the screen 110" might be pushing things a tad, keep in mind in screen heights sitting at 3m thats about 2.1 screen heights which is a little too close in my opinion. also would need to be at 5.2m to been closer to 15 deg viewing angle for comfort. i probably wouldn't go any larger than 100" gives you 2.4 screen heights as is. and would go further larger or closer. 100 to 102" is probably enough and be something will be able to enjoy with lot of material. keep in mind even 1080p you will fully resolve sitting as far back as 4m. so at 3m be fully resolving and also benefiting with 4k uhd. and also every day TV DVD etc will be watchable with a larger screen you could sit further back.... but then will leave less room for speakers in surrounds and heights... so going slightly smaller in 100-102" I reckon at your viewing distance a better balance ? just my thoughts anyways .... however great to hear going screen techniques i run one of those myself and something owned few years now and very happy. another great local made product.

    a room depth of 5m, can have you sitting at 3m point and leaving 2m behind you. at 3m you have enough width in front of you to run a 92-100" 16:9 screen and will easily resolve 1080p and do 4k uhd some justice. at this distance. an OLED with max size of 65" at 2.5m is farthest away before stop resolving 1080p and most definitely at that point even you will not be fully resolving 4k uhd. a 65" to 92" screen is 50% increase in diagonal and 100" even more so. the size difference up is significant and if viewing at say 3m it will very much be appreciated with not only 1080p but also for 4k uhd material. a 92" is over 2m wide, 100" is 2.2m wide so no problem with a 3.7m wide front wall still leaves suffienct space to side for speakers so wont be squashed in to the sides and will have room to breathe as to size ? vs speakers will fit in. with the 2m behind your seating out leaves enough breathing room for 7.1 and also a full complement of .4 height speakers around the main seating area. re subs i wouldn't go two subs, for a room that size., i would go one decent good quality sub, and there are plenty about. place it well upfront and utilise eq on board your AVR to dial in to perfection. so I would say go for it !!! you have what is likely be a very nice setup and something to have a lot of enjoyment with.
  11. it is a fair point though that due to bit depth limitations of panels and that we have nothing capable of peak capabilities of DV.... so you aint going to take advantage of biggest advantages DV has. the main thing be taking advantage off is tone mapping.... and tone mapping we have a better handle on since early days...eg even with jvc projectors which natively handle things in 12 bit.... we have ways to map for excellent results. as the article says it comes back more to tellys and their handling of things, than anything, the sony a1 doesnt as yet support DV in anycase does it ? perhaps a discussion to review when it actually does ? Conclusion Dolby Vision can be considered the more advanced HDR format, but the lack of content and supported TVs is holding it back at the moment. HDR10 has the distinct advantage of having more content available and being supported on TVs with a higher peak brightness, effectively giving a better result in the end. Ultimately, the difference between the two formats isn't that important. The quality of the TV itself has a much bigger impact on HDR (see our recommendations for the best HDR TVs). It’s still quite early days for HDR. Both formats have the ability to produce much more dynamic images than we are seeing on the best TVs today. The limitation is down to both the TV technology and the way the titles are mastered. We can’t yet reach the 10,000 cd/m2 maximum peak brightness and the expanded 12 bit color range. as the rtings article quotes
  12. interesting point, i have quoted it in the following thread below as adds good context to other perspectives, could you add though which player you are utilising ? to complete the context and what discs/movies/media/sources you have experienced this so far,
  13. an interesting post from evolution below, I also note the article below, which am not sure been posted in this thread, not sure if they are keeping it upto date - appears to be, http://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/hdr10-vs-dolby-vision and i note they conclude below, "Conclusion Dolby Vision can be considered the more advanced HDR format, but the lack of content and supported TVs is holding it back at the moment.

  14. Oppo Uhd 4K Player

    only two chips. one goes inside and one external working off the usb. in use either are same from what i under stand.
  15. an old photo, but using an articulated mount, will see my pio kuro now sits about 300m off back wall, bonus also with this is lamps to the side can act as back lighting, so 7 - 8 cm off wall if wall mounted is not a bother at all, and indeed can be floating off there and we love it mounted that way,
