My point, exactly: I sure wasn't going to spend thousands of dollars to get top notch gear when I could basically get amazing sounding files without having to invest and waste time.

I've tried digitizing my lps a few years ago and in every case, I've found better sounding hi-res files on the internet.

So, basically, digitizing lps is a waste of time, in my opinion.

For me, the terrible and limited channel selection makes this offer a big PASS.

I fail to see how this is different from a very bad cable provider.

Yeah... right.

OK. Conspiracy theorist.

Dolby is "manipulating" me.

That sounds... well.

Whatever.

In theory, the black level of OLEDs is not "zero", let's say it's 0.0001.

This new tech would be 0.00001. Not "minus 1", just closer to zero.

So, blacker it is. But can we really see the...

Color gamut is interesting, but as a video director (and editor) the curve and lack of 4K makes this one a "pass".

Cinema brightness is way lower than what we can get at home right now.

If I'm not mistaken, even Dolby Cinemas struggle to reach just a few hundred nits.

You are very wrong on this.

Joe Public really like it when he leaves Costco with a 4K HDR tv or (eventually) projector.

Because even if Joe Public knows nothing about tech or quality, he...

I saw it in 3D at the Scotia IMAX in Montréal and the image was way too dark: probably the worst IMAX 3D I've seen (close to the first Hobbit).

"...deciding to go with Auro-3D is not a simple decision."

A $200 upgrade for a system with practically no available source material ?

I'd say the decision NOT to get it is pretty simple.

There's nos such thing as a "9.3.4" processor. That "fake" ".3" is a ".1" outputted 3 times. No encoding system does "3" different sub outputs. They're the same in triplicate.

Emotiva has always been one step behind as far as surround codecs are concerned. I think they take to long to develop their products: once they reach market, they're already outdated.

Dolby Vision for XBOX ONE

I could be wrong, but what I've read so far about Dolby Vision suggests that a software upgrade won't allow decoding of that format unless a purpose-built Dolby chip is installed inside the player.
