iTunes doesn't offer any type of high resolution audio, just standard Dolby Digital 5.1. The video quality looks fine on a iPad or a smaller flat panel sitting far away but doesn't come near matching...

I may not but I'll be loving it on travel. iPad minis don't really cut it for me when I'm stuck on a submarine for a week or so and want to watch a movie.

If the OLED roll out screen delivers a superb picture, I'm more than fine with the end of home cinema projectors. Projectors are a necessary evil to deliver the screen sizes that we want but there...

Just got word that I will be receiving this projector next week for a full review for Sound and Vision. Look for it in our CEDIA issue. I had a fantastic time with this projector when Chromy came by...

I think this is a limitation of the processing power for objects vs beds. It doesn't make sense any other way. If I have a 5.1 bed it shouldn't be any big deal at all to add another set of top...

I've never understood the complaints about the dialogue in Interstellar. I saw the movie twice in theaters (IMAX digital and IMAX 70mm) and at home. Not once did I ever have an issue with the...

But it probably only comes off as dim because of the obvious difference to the HP screen sample section. I remember when most people thought 8 to 10 fL looked great. In the right room with nothing...

Interesting that Madshi says that a 10 bit output to his JVC projector looks bad. The JVCs are end to end 10 bit with full 10-bit capability at the LCOS panel.

40Hz is a bit too low for those speakers. I would look at at 60Hz at the lowest. You're essentially saying they play down reasonably to 20Hz and I doubt even Richard Vandersteen would say that (he...

Audyssey doesn't set the crossovers for playback. It tells the processor the frequency response and then the processor than decides where that crossover fits in their available modes. Most of the...

Out of the movies there the only one that may be similar to Under the Skin in terms of needing more than one viewing to "get it" is Birdman. The others are pretty cut and dry, though still enjoyable....

I have a 8802 and Lumagen Radiance. I put the Radiance after the 8802. I have the I/p scaler set to off but the OSD set to on (in the 8802). No issues to speak of.

That is a hard question to answer because no one short of the engineers at Marantz know what you can or can't do with DTS:X at the moment. One hopes it will work the way you're talking about right...
