Congrats on your decision.
Check both this thread and the Owner's Thread. There have been several discussions about initial power-up and settings to consider -- not a lot has changed since those were documented. Of course there are many POVs, but as you'll find upthread, I didn't do anything special with my A1E upon first power-on, and am not disappointed with my decision. I didn't play certain content or run hours upon hours of slides like some seem to think is important. I simply enjoyed normal content for hours each day, tried a bunch of things with settings to get oriented, and started watching old DVDs and Blu-rays -- in addition to new 4K HDR versions -- both in glorious resolution and color, as I kept tally on my hours until it's first calibration.
