Hi Mark - I'm not convinced the Lumagen is best for upscaling to 4k, as I find it a tad soft. I don't prefer ringing, but I've spent a lot of time switching between two presets, one outputting 1080 and one outputting 4k, and even from my seat, the Lumen 4 is soft. Conversely, I don't see the 1100 creating halos, unless one grossly adjust RC and sharpness settings of course..
I'm hestitant to post screen grabs, as they are fraught with issues, but even so, you can see differences in fine hairs, pores, lines, stubble, etc, between these two:
Sony scaling left, Lumagen scaling right
Sharpness is the same on both (10), RC is 15/15 on the Sony scale. RC doesn't function on 4k signals.
