Off Topic Question
My Datasat is being installed next week with calibration the following week. Getting pumped!
While there are more Bluray discs being released with Atmos/dts-X there are also several being released on 4k discs. To be able to take advantage of the soun dtracks on 4k discs I was thinking of replacing my Oppo 105D with the new 203 4k unit. The issue is I have a Runco VX22-d 1080 projector that i will not be replacing for couple years. Is it possible to play 4k discs to get the 3-d audio but send a 1080 video to the projector? Even if this is possible, will it end up delivering an inferior video image to the projector than the standard 1080 Bluray? I don't want to degrade my picture quality just to get the 3d audio.
Lastly, for those who listen to hi-res audio.....I have always listened to my SACD and DVD-A music discs in direct mode by-passing all processing. I know this isn't exactly available in the Datasat and, in many respects, isn't as much of a necessity to get the best direct playback quality from source audio since I now will be able to send the audio signal into the processor for conversion to analogue....but I still would like to get the most accurate playback from the source without coloring it or adding unecessary eq. How do you listen to hi res discs to maintane the purest stream from the disc?
Really value the experience you guys have and appreciate any feedback.
