Overscan

There are video signal processors, like the Lumagen models (and some others) that can do what you want with little or no risk at all. I've never used one on my Mitsubishi 65 inch, but there are...

Ceilings

The Digitaltrends review was useful and honest, but most intriguing for me was how it worked with a less than ideal ceiling. My living room, as in a lot of older buildings in LA, is gently vaulted. ...

I must be in an alternate universe. When I checked Costco, just now, all I see is the 38" model. :confused:

I'm not so sure that's true. The original YSP 1 from a few years ago worked in a 40 x 40 foot room according to Yamaha. That model had more drivers, but the smaller number of drivers in the 4300...

Isn't there a way you could mount the soundbar higher...even if above the TV? I can't help but think that the rear kitchen wall might make the auto-calibration work better.

As I said before, Foxbat121, I think curved displays in smaller screen sizes are not a big advantage, will not really add to the immersion effect, and are probably mostly a product of marketing. ...

I'll take your word for it, foxbat121.

In my earlier post I suggested that a 105 or 108 inch screen was mentioned as the point at which the immersion effect would be noticeable. Since I don't have...

Personally, I don't have a curved screen, so I cannot speak authoritatively about ambient reflections... which is why I used the word apparently.

Just my three cents (due to inflation)

I think that when discussing curved screens we're in a kind of no man's land between hard science, subjectivity, and marketing.

I believe there is some science behind the so-called immersion...

It's late, and I can't find the size of the drivers in the 1400 vs the 2500, but the YSP 2500 has 16 beam drivers, versus 8 in the YSP 1400. The 2500 will do better with surround if the room...

If you drive OLEDs harder with more current to achieve greater brightness (at the current stage of the tech) you accelerate aging, which is more of an issue with OLED than LED.

In many cases CR compares and rates on the basis of function, but when you're dealing with audio or video what is being gauged is more a matter of how we perceive things...a trickier proposition.
