Great review. His comment about front soundstage makes me curious about how reviews from this thread will touch on this issue. Most soundbars have limited soundstages, which is of concern,...

I'm curious whether the Samsung HW-K950 has a wide front soundstage.

It will also be interesting to find out if the Atmos drivers in the soundbar and rears are focused above and forward of the...

I don't think a curved soundbar inherently precludes Atmos. Even with a curved device, the speakers, including the upward firing ones, could be aimed to provide the desired sound field.

I'm tremendously curious about your review, as I have been intrigued since the announcement.

Unfortunately, my living room ceiling, although "flat" in the middle, curves down towards the edges.

What will equal OLED, without the disadvantage of burn in, is Emissive Quantum Dot technology. Right now quantum dots are used as part...

I was responding to no rear height effects ith the Yamaha, which is to be expected. What isn't expected is no rear effects at ear level. Where was this "Dolby Optimized Room?"

You wouldn't get rear height effects with the Yamaha as it is 7.1.2, rather than 7.1.4.

It'll be interesting to see how the Samsung 5.1.4 soundbar performs when it hits the market.

Cambridge Audio does list the frequency response of the Min 22 as 120 hz to 20khz, vs 150 hz to 20 khz for the Min 12.

So the Min 22 does reach deeper in the bass. :cool:

Thanks for your response.

3DFury will work on a CRT RPTV at 720P. Now I realize that 1080i is interlaced, but why would 720P work and not 1080i.

It's a baffling subject.

3D on 1080i?

Here's kind of an esoteric question.

I have a retro Mitsubishi WS 65813 HD CRT rear projection unit which runs at 1080i (also 480 P). Like most rear projectors it lacks 720 P.

I have a 3DFury...

You need to find out the model number. The best 73 inch set in 2010 was the WD 73838.

The Fury 4S Scaler still for sale on HD Fury is the same hardware as the Fury 3D and Fury 4. It just depends on which firmware you use. :cool:

I've got a Mitsubishi WS 65813 as my sole television. It has amazing color, brightness, and blacks. I wish I could find someone in LA who would do a careful optics cleaning, and focus.

Time Warner Motorola DCX3200 Sharpness Adjustment

Interesting that you mention that, as the manufacturer has a package that include a diminutive stereo tube amplifier, supposedly sufficient to drive a pair of Sommeliers.

I hadn't read Post 3, so I retract that comment.

But to say "Who are you to say" is to do more than express an opinion. It's putting the other person down, which I don't believe it is civil.
