I'm confused about AVS's store. The site's emails IIRC come from Toronto, but my understanding is the shop site is in Rochester, correct? BrianMac is in Canada, as am I.

BTW, Brian, my retailer...

Yes, weeks ago. It was posted right in this thread. The unit was shipped to Québec from Gibby's. Not me though. :(

The main reason I went with the Sony was because of the (much) lower reported fan noise actually. The thing that irritates me the most with my current projector is the fan noise, and it's not even...

For that size room, I would recommend a 65" to 75" 4K TV with HDR support. Others here might disagree.

HDR has nothing to do with resolution per se. While I'm not yet convinced the 5040UB will have great HDR, if such a beast existed, I'd take a high quality 1080p HDR panel over a low quality 4K HDR...

So not the TW9300 (5040UB) then? If the TW9200 (5030UB) then this is a model which is often compared to the 40ES (and now 45ES). The 5030UB wins because of its dynamic iris, giving it superior black...

Just to be clear, while some studios are limiting Atmos to UHD releases, UHD is not required for Atmos. I'm running Atmos with my 720p projector with my $70 Blu-ray Player. And yes, it sounds great....

Yes, HDR support. Dunno how good it will be on the 5040UB, but for other projectors and for many TVs, people say it is the biggest improvement to display technology in years.

Nowhere, but it's very likely to get HDR, you'll have to feed it a 4K source.

Personally, what I don't understand is why there aren't more pure 1080p projectors out there that understand 4K inputs...

No HDR for 1080p. Also I'm pretty sure it won't have 120Hz for 1080p either.

Also, I don't think I'd want 40 ms lag for an "ultimate" gaming display. The 5030UB is 35-40 ms, but with this new...
