whale-av, thank you for the response. What I see of those early days is that fact that the vehicle and recording techniques were in question. Early recordings (wax etc.) didn't reproduce within the...

I admit I find some of this both confusing and a bit tedious.

When I think of "high resolution," I think of accuracy of recording for playback across the audible range. I am sure this is not the...

Not a great film by any means and didn't capture the feeling (for me) of Dazed and Confused. Perhaps my expectations were too high.

While I do agree with many of the other posters' negative...

This looks like a good Redbox que item for me. Sometimes nonsense makes sense and this film seems to fit the bill for a nice action comedy.

Thanks Ralph for the heads up.

Ralph, thanks for the heads up on this one. I admit I have a soft spot for these type of coming of age films and certainly enjoy a romp through that era of music. I'm going to guess it will be a...

Thanks Ralph for the heads up. My guess is it will go to rental/streaming quickly and perhaps a watch then.

Mark, any chance of doing a contrast and compare with say something like Goldenear's SuperCinema 3D Array soundbar?

I believe that cable stations can handle these better. We already see the likes of Game of Thrones, both Netflix and Amazon producing material as well.

We agree that more time was needed for the...

I caught the trilogy on audio books. I admit I wasn't totally smitten with the notion of an "experiment" but the books were reasonably digestible. Without being a spoiler here, the 3rd movie dealt...

I fully appreciate your thought about trying out in one's own home. Which model of Triton did you hear to arrive at your opinion? I find that the Triton 7 and Triton 5 play both jazz and orchestral...

Ralph thanks for the review. I opted to stream the movie before making a purchase and glad I did. This movie(for me) was truly uninspired, strayed from the original way too much and joined a group of...

Perhaps you may want to examine the Goldenear Triton series. Given that you have a sub, you could easily go for the passive towers.

I liked this film on several levels. However, I can absolutely see why most would not like it.

This film is not for everyone. I am sure the brothers understood that before taking on the movie.

The plot seems to be pretty straight forward and not quite novel. However, a well done Western is always welcomed even if just as a rental or caught on late night TV.

Glad you enjoy the usage. I was hoping to get an idea of a contrast and compare to something akin to the Oppo 105 which has analogue outs and also about the guts (DACs etc.).
