I see it for $148.99 in Amazons Lightning deal. WHat is the difference between the original Darblet and the DVP-5000S? I have two Darblets that I got back in 2012 but I can't really use them in my 4K setup. When is a 4K Darbee processor supposed to be released?

Nicer case, different remote, no 4K support, no significant difference in processing. Better to wait for a device that supports 4K, IMO.

While I agree completely, I have a Panasonic ZT60, that is "only" 1080p, and that is my TV for the next several years, so, I am not loosing anything by buying the current version.

Also, I would bet that the new version will be more expensive than this deal, while that is not a deal breaker for me, it is always good to save 100+ dollars or so.

If you don't already have a Darblet, then by all means go for the 5000S. If you already have a Darblet, it isn't worth the upgrade. And who knows if the 4K-capable Darblet will be more expensive--we will cross that bridge in the future.

Is there any hope that the current Darblets will be upgrade-able (for a fee, of course) to 4K, or are we speculating completely about 4K at this point?

Sorry, Michael, zero chance, not at this price point.

Hey guys I think its time I jump on the Darbee bandwagon. I have a Sony 55ES projector and a Denon 4200 receiver. Ill be using a Monoprice 40' cabernet cable.
So with that being said is there any difference between the 5000s and the 5100. I realize that I may have to buy used/refurbed for the 5100.

If anyone wouldnt mind a quick pro/con between the two I would appreciate it.
I like the 5100 as it will work better in my A/V rack but either one isnt a deal breaker.

Thanks!!

Not totally useless. The Darblet will not pass a 4K signal, so it cannot be in the signal path when using 4K source components like a UHD player. Nor can it be used if you upscale to 4K in your AVR.

However, in my case, I continue to have a number of non-4K source devices, like my satellite DVR and AppleTV. So I have two HDMI connections between the AVR and the TV, one for 1080p devices with the Darblet in the signal path, and one for my 4K source devices. If yo are willing to go to the trouble of installing two HDMI cables, you can extend the usefulness of the Darblet until they release a new 4K model.

Interesting. What 4K source devices do you have or plan on purchasing? You could connect a UHD player directly to the TV, bypassing the AVR, and still maintain the Darblet on the single HDMI from the AVR for the 1080p devices.

What AVR? Is your AVR capable of supporting 4K, i.e. does it have HDMI 2.0a, HDCP 2.2, 4K pass-thru, etc.? If not, it is going to be a constant struggle consisting of work-arounds as you add other 4K source devices. Time to think about a new AVR to support your nice new TV?

Actually my 4K T.V. is my last purchase in the sequence, I already have a 4K/2.2 enabled receiver (Yamaha 681) HDMI 2.0a cables, Samsung 8500 4K UHD BD player, and an HTPC with GTX 1060.

Right now my HTPC, PS4, and Samsung 8500 all go into my my receiver, the single HDMI out feeds into my darbee and the darbee finally outputs to the television (Panasonic ST50). I'm really not sure how to keep using the darbee with those devices, any ideas ?

As I said in my first post, the Darblet will not pass 4K. The fact that the Yamaha only has one HDMI output is disappointing for a current-generation AVR. So either you connect the 4K source devices directly to the TV, or you stop using the Darblet. (Or return the Yamaha if you can.)

Yeah that stinks, I'll just have to wait for the 4K Darbee to come out, I can put it to use when my brother inherits my old receiver and TV though.

I guess you are a Yamaha fan? Like I said, I can't imagine a single HDMI output. And I have never been a YPAO fan. There are Denon and Marantz options with Audyssey XT32 and two HDMI outputs.

No telling when we might see a 4K Darblet. But as much of a Darbee Vision fan as I am, I don't know whether it will be equally effective for native 4K content.

Good luck!

Could you give me links to the receivers you are recommending so that I can have a look ?

There are a number of choices on either the Denon.com or Marantz.com web sites. Or you can read up here on AVS in the Denon or Marantz threads.
