I've been getting into the show Fringe. Netflix delivered a couple BDs from the first season yesterday. I do believe it's time to make a Christmas cocktail and adjourn into the HT. Cheers, my friends.

I had a great XMAS eve Wabo thanks

You know what will be spectacular? A Sharknado in DTS X. Come to think of it, a DTS X double feature with Lavalantula will be the bees knees. #DTSXWinning

Lol. Dirac will work as a great fish finder. It'll let us know if the floor has peaks and valleys underneath.

You need a double shot of espresso just to make it through. I did see a really good movie on Netflix last night. Turbo Kid. It's a post apocalyptic movie with an 80's music score and some great gore. It's a hoot.

Doing some more testing. Though it's hard to do a comparisons of up mixers as you can't use DSU with DTS. So I find it surprising how some members find it better than others without actually doing a side by side comparison ( with the same movie )

I've been reading that Neural X is the end all, be all of upmixers. Pack your bags Dolby and don't let the door hit you on the way out. I dunno, mate. You'll have to take that extra step and set your BDP to PCM.

If we're going to do that we might as well rocked the old dinosaur ( DENON AVP A1HD ) and added the pro kit in for measure. Talk about going back in time. Will even play Huey Lewis And The News.

There giving them away. They were an expensive boat anchor now sitting in the bottom of the ocean soon to be joined by another Datasat in the next couple of years.

The Indian Ocean is full of these expensive relics

Bad thing we lost with the DENON good thing we weren't stupid enough to do it again. Lol
