I'm tempted to buy some of these UHDs. Leon, The Fifth Element, Dracula, etc are some of my dream movies. However, I'm just not willing to sacrifice my Kuro for a 4K display just yet. I have too many DVDs/Blus that look fantastic on it, not to mention everything else I throw at it.
So would I be waisting my money on a Sony X800 UHD player? I have a 5020FD with an Elite board calibrated by D-Nice (now has .005ml), and was curious if I would notice any uptick in detail, colors, etc? I realize it isn't a 4K display but these discs still offer much higher bitrate so was thinking downscaled on the Kuro it should look superior correct?
The only reservation I have is that my Kuro was calibrated with Blu-ray standard in mind (REC709 or whatever). Will the new 10-bit processing of UHDs (excuse my ignorance or lack of knowlege on the topic) look okay on the Kuro or will colors/black levels be off? Will I have to re-calibrate my set? I'm hoping not, and that I can see an increase in detail. I'm not as interested in HDR as I am the increase in sharpness/detail. I upgraded to Blu-ray for the increase of detail and I imagine this will be similar, albeit on a smaller scale (which is okay). Some of these films releasing I wouldn't hesitate to triple dip so money isn't a huge factor. I just don't want to buy another tv when my Kuro works perfectly fine.
