Anything shot on 35mm and below has at most about 4K detail. Waiting for 8K is pointless as there are very few films that have beyond 4K detail (basically good 70mm and some digital camera material).

New 4K transfer. The question is, will Criterion release this speedily on UHD BD or will they not release any UHD BDs for years as they did with BDs after BD was launched.

The farthest speaker has 0 delay. The others according to difference to farthest relative to listening position. Should work correctly.

I entered them manually for Dirac 1. If you rerun the last step now the delays should be correct, I hope.

V1.03.04 has been around for over a week. Dirac 2 should support correct delay measurements for the channels which Dirac 1 did not (results were garbage).

It may apply to commercial cinemas. It does not apply to home cinemas where you can control room influence to a much larger degree.

What has this got to do with your claim that rooms don't support more than 50000:1 on off contrast of a projector? I know they can, whether you use an LCD variant, DLP or good old CRT projectors.

What room? My room supports contrast well beyond 50000:1 with suitable dark material (e.g. it's very obvious when the projector can do 500000:1 instead of 50000:1).
