The denon 7200w didn't come with hdmi 2.0a ports. Owners could send the unit in and Denon upgraded it to 2.0a for free. The WA model, which was released later, came with the upgraded hdmi 2.0a ports.

I think the PEQ for subs is at 31Hz. I think they added the manual PEQ as a way to potentially make good improvements but by no means did they intend it to be used as the ultimate tool.

I don't have any recommendations as $10k is out of my price range, but you're the first person I'm aware of who didn't like the LS50's. I've only read great things about them. I was thinking of...

I have my maggies about a foot from the wall. I used to move them out, listen, and then move them back. But I found moving them out didn't make much difference so I don't bother any more. I guess...

I don't think there will be such a thing as HDR only discs. I think of HDR kind of like a 7.1 track. If you have a 7.1 system, everything is used. If you have a 5.1, the disc can still be used, just...

The 77" is currently $25k, so I don't expect an 80" at close to LCD prices for a while.

I was talking way down the line. I know I wasn't clear. HEVC won't get any more efficient, but whatever replaces it will. The reason we didn't use HEVC (Or something way more efficient than MPEG)...

I think that's the only reason to get the 3050. Power wise, you won't notice a difference and the difference in DACs is likely not noticeable either.

If I didn't already have rear surroundss...

I prefer flat over curved, but IMO supporting HDR over HDMI is more important.

I would guess by the end of this year going forward, all major motion picture releases will have a UHD blu-ray version. Some will include HDR.

On the 3050 you can still choose to use a DSP when listening to an atmos movie. I assume it will use the 5.1/7.1 track as a source, but if you're not happy with the atmos track, then it shouldn't...

I have 4 atmos ceiling speakers. To me, the DSPs are used to upgrade say a 5.1 source to 11 channels. If you have a 11 channel source, not sure why you would ever use them. It's kind of like using...

UHD uses HEVC, not mpeg so it's roughly twice as compression efficient as MPEG. It will require more bandwidth but not 4x. 2x is more likely.

Also, over time as hardware gets better/cheaper, It...

I don't get the anger over the 9600 not doing HDR over HDMI. It's been known all along it couldn't do this and LG never mentioned it would ever be able to do it.
