Hi,

Does anyone know if there is a cheap VP just for aspect ratio control? I would like to be able to digitally zoom 2.35:1 content to either 2.0:1 or 1.85:1. I know the Oppo has something like...

Keep in mind my comment was only directed to "discrete" versus "non-discrete" pixels. "Who cares", when in the comparison, the non-discrete pixel projector was much sharper.

I definitely agree...

The "really solid image" is because of the laser light source as compared to a lamp which in comparison flickers but would otherwise be unnoticeable.

This is just another advantage of laser even...

I'm not sure if the 8802 is truly balanced so maybe just use AES/EBU to RCA cables to each speaker. What sub(s) are you using with the LS50's? How does the sound compare to your main system?

Plus an active crossover and time alignment which is the biggest difference IMO. I only wished they included a true AES/EBU input.

That is incorrect. A 16" woofer is exactly 4 times the size of an 8" woofer, therefore a 15" woofer is even LESS than 4 times an 8" woofer. It's amazing how people just "throw around incorrect...

He did mention if he won the Lottery he would buy M2's, not 4722's which have a higher sensitivity. So yes of course sensitivity is important, but it's not the only factor. Great post.

And to you it appears that's the only thing required for good sound, so it doesn't really reflect much on your opinion of sound quality...

It's kind of like someone quoting THD of their amp.

When you buy the 708 with the DCI, is there EQ/DSP done inside the DCI for the 708?

Also, why does it seem like there are no 708 owners in this thread?

Thanks!

Is it at the point now where with these settings, HDR UHD looks better than SDR UHD? Before it didn't seem like that was the case.
