Does anyone know the details of the equipment of the TIFF Bell Lightbox Cinema 2 theatre? I'm not sure it's the best place to review a 4K release, because the way the room is set up, you can't really...

The Optoma HD25 seems to be a competent projector, yes, but it sounds like you have very specific needs and wants at a certain set of price points. That's fine, but most people will have different...

Except I see also at the top and bottom of the image as well. Maybe a 1.5" rim of very dark grey around the image itself, all the way around.

Your Marantz 6006 does not support HDCP 2.2 and thus doesn't support the 4K DRM chain. Marantz (like many others) mostly started supporting this in 2015, which is why I bought the Marantz 5010, a...

The Samsung BD-J6300 seems to be working fine, which makes sense because it is a current model still.
