I know you are all crazy about time here even I think it s not important at all.
I check with dark knight which appears to be one of the slower
From standy to On 15s
From the time I close the tray the loading screen 17s
Loading screen was 16s.
Yes the THX trailer of Indi is in Dolby Digital only but hell it sounds good.
I didn't check the analog section
Victor is JVC in Japan. I bought it from Avac, expert AV shop in Japan, they don't sell international.
The video choose automaticaly 4:4:4. I don't know how many bits it's outputting because my projector is not telling me but the even I guess it's outputting only 10 or 12 bits because the VXP genum proc in my proj works in 10 bits like the realta. However the internal processing of the processor is in 16 bits which smooth and reduce the error a lot. A digital error on one unit in 16 bits is much less than in 8 bits.
I just finished watching Horton using the both HDMI with high speed and the image was really smooth and wonderfull. There is a big difference in the gradation in dark, the skin and the sky due to the 16 bits processing. I compare with PS3 and High end panasonic player. Sounds is really outstanding.
I will check the analog and tell you later.
Over my 100 blu-ray, they are working well.
I watched a Pal DVD and the noise reduction was so smooth, the detail really strong and no wrong line artefact at all. The best scalling in the house.
One interesting thing is that if you set the output to 1080/24p with a Pal DVD you will get 1080i/50 but if you choose 1080p you get 1080/50p
On the player screen, there is a little indicator which shows the frequency, 24, 50 and 60.
Outputting 24p from 1080i broadcast material looks great too.
But what I would say is the most impressive is that when the camera is moving a lot, the image stays on focus so much more than with any other player I saw, and I saw them all. And this 3D impression that there was already a bit on the last pioneer high end DVD player is here too.
I should play with the settings too.
Just to let you know my gear a little.
I use a SC-09 AV amp with a Accuphase E-550 Pre-main used for power-amp.
I use no center speaker, 4 surround and for the bass management I use a SMS-1 digital equalizer and a Velodyne HGS-18. Wireworld SS52 for video and Wireworld starlight 5 for the audio. Proj is JVC HD-100.
Even they say in the manual you can't have video on both HDMI output, if you use Pure Audio Off, I had images on both.
Pure Audio 1 is only audio (for CDs) and Pure Audio 2 is the one to use (HDMI video on SUB and HDMI audio on Main).
