It's me, again
. I just wanted to say again how happy I am with the picture I am getting from my TV. Even though it's a 2015 model, and the 2016 ones are supposed to be better, I am very happy. I watched The Expendables 3 last night. I know it's not a reference movie but it's a fun pop corn movie IMO. Well, the video looked incredible. There were some night scenes that were very impressive, Shots of some cityscapes also looked really good. All in all I am very impressed and I have regrets at all.
I don't know how it measures though and everyone talks about the blacks on a TV. Well, I don't know how much more black it can get. On fade scenes (transition scenes) it looks pitch black to me. I mean if's not like a grey black. It's freaking black. I don't know the measurements though. On the other side of the spectrum, the whites get really bright. I mean, I can feel mu pupils adjusting
. Again, I don't have any numbers to back up what I am seeing and if I did, they probably would not look that impressive. All I can say is that from deep black to bright white and every color in between I am very impressed with this TV. Now I am really excited to get that OPPO and see what 4k looks like.
The only thing is the connection. I am using a Samsung JS8500. It has that little box that helps you connect the TV to your system. But I think the BR player I have now is connected directly to my Marantz. I think it is. Craig did all that stuff for me. I am hoping that all I have to do is connect the OPPO to the Marantz. But I don't know if there are only certain HDMI inputs that give you full 4k resolution with the Marantz or my TV. I am hoping it is just a plain cable and player swap and I can plug the the new cable into where the current cable is. But then I am wondering if I need to change anything in my TV menu or my Marantz menu. See, this is where I get confused
. But I will deal with that when the time comes.
