"Lively and dynamic"... that plus their soundstaging abilities makes them HIGHLY appealing to me. Especially for the price. $500 for the tower and $250 for the bookshelf version? Yeah, these might...

Just got the Australian blu-ray today. Ripped it and checked out the first minute or so... absolutely gorgeous! Inky blacks and spot-on detail! I was concerned because it's 1080 50i, according to...

Watched the 3D version last night. As expected, the 3D was exemplary, especially in the IMAX segments. One interesting thing that I don't know if any of my 3D movies have done is, on some of the...

You guys are life-savers!! Color space problem, indeed. The projector was set to 0-255 and when I switched to 16-235 everything went dark and delicious like it should be.

However, I did find the...

Is "color space" the same as "color gamut"? If so I found the setting. Got another hour or so until it's dark enough to test.

Another point of contention is that, when I first got the projector it would also randomly do this when I was watching movies on my PS3. Simply turning it off and on would typically fix the problem....

Oh, I watch 3d movies on my KD Links Media Player. If I could use that to watch 2D movies on my projector, this wouldn't be as much of a problem as it is. However, the KD Links asks for a...

Help? Optoma HD83 elevated black levels on HTPC Plex

So, after thinking that I had become disgusted with 2D on my Optoma HD83 projector, I realized the other day was that the problem isn't 2D, it's that, most of the times, when I'm watching a movie on...

That's actually what I thought of the original Dolby Digital's sound, back in the 90s. Maybe they just like that sorta thing at Dolby :confused:

Damn, no 3d? I'm real curious how it is on blu-ray. First time I had been to that particular theater but this had about the best 3d I've ever seen in a theater.

I did. I was running the most recent version. It takes quite a long time to analyze the disc, over five minutes I think, but it can rip it.

I typically use Plex. However, I don't think Plex can...

I didn't watch the whole movie, but I did check out the first 15 minutes or so in Atmos. Holy cow this soundtrack is intense. The overhead channels utilization is almost over-done, but, then again,...
