As mentioned I have a Sony BDP-S185 Blu-Ray player. It is hooked up per the instructions with HDMI cables through a Sony HT-CT150 sound bar/sub and then on to a 60" Sharp Aquos LC-60LE600U. It's my first venture into the world of HD TV and so far have been thrilled. Love the picture and the sound.
My question relates to Blu-Ray discs/players. I don't know if I simply held too high of expectations having never owned a Blu-Ray player and HD TV before. When I play a Blu-Ray movie the picture is equivalent to a HD channel on cable, MAYBE slightly better. I had throught, perhaps incorrectly, that Blu-Ray images were like the ultimate for clarity and sharpness, etc. Don't get me wrong, I still feel the picture is great (from my limited experience perspective) - but is this typical? Is the picture quality of Blu-Ray movies generally equivalent to the HD channel feed from my cable provider?
Secondly, is there a significant variance in picture quality from movie to movie on Blu-Ray? For example, there's a big difference between one music album and another depending on the producer, recording engineer, etc even though they may all be released on mp3. Is there a similar dynamic with movies?
Thanks in advance!
Just as not all dvd's are of the same picture quality, neither are blu rays.
