Consider it clear. Even if it belonged here, there would be no need to keep saying it over, and over, and over.

I think it works great. I have an HDR 4k TV and an Atmos AVR, which I find does better for non-HDR 2k source material with non-Atmos 5.1 sound (which is 99% of what I watch). So, I think it's very...

Yes, it would mean that. The problem with anecdotal evidence is that when people make sighted comparisons like this, we know that they have a practically unlimited capacity to fool themselves. If...

No, I don't think you have seen the results of lab tests proving that. What you may have seen is theoretical reasoning purporting to show that people can't tell the difference. A lab test would be...

But how do those doing the telling know? Maybe they've heard that YouTube uses VP9 for 4k streaming, and they know that the JS9500 has a Youtube app, so, it must be 4k that it's using. However,...

The review is consistent with my own experience with the step-down model JS9000. I thought this, from the review, was especially interesting:

I'd say to let the TV do its thing. I watch DirecTV 1080i upscaled by the JS9000 all the time, and it looks great. I haven't actually compared to the upscaling done by my BDP, but I don't have any...

Some does. Since 4k HDR is only marginally available yet, you have to have good upconversion; otherwise, for me, there is not yet much point in getting 4k at all. I'm happy to report that the...

Yes, HDR/WCG would be monumental enough to wait for, if you had to wait for them. My Samsung JS9000 that I've had for 3 months now already has these features. I wouldn't recommend getting 4k now...

Go with edge lit -- that's my opinion. When I was deciding between the JS9000 and JS9500, the reviews I saw said they had very similar pictures, so I decided to save $1k and get the JS9000. The...

I'd get a better center speaker. ( I know you don't think speakers are your problem, but I can disagree.)

Wanting a new center, you can experiment with pointing your existing center more directly...

The VSX-90 has 3 hdcp2.2 hdmi inputs. Do you really expect to have more than 3 devices to connect that require hdcp2.2?

Yes. My only Atmos AVR is the Pioneer VSX-90 5.2.2/7.2, which does not provide for FH (or for TF). Only TM.

I use dipole speakers for top middle and side surrounds in a 5.1.2 Atmos setup. And my "top middle" speakers are actually front height speakers. Sounds good, to me, except I have yet to hear...

The manual for my VSX-90 says that the speaker setup has to have two speakers beyond 5.1: "Any one of top-middle, surround back, or front-wide must be selected." (p. 75 under "About Dolby Atmos")

How about lots of center drivers (but just one center speaker)? Then the speaker's internal construction decides how the sound is dispersed by the various drivers, hopefully to a good effect. I'm...

I don't know why that wouldn't work. (But the only time I tried two centers, a long time ago, it degraded the sound. I gave it up.)

Thank you, I finally got the VSX-90 to show that it's playing Atmos. I followed the suggestion to set "BD Audio Mix" to off (it was on). There was no apparent change -- the AVR still displayed...
