I have a 141" wide ST130 as well (non-micro perfed). I liked the ST130 paired with my 1100es better than with my 5000es. I do notice the slight sheen on the ST130 more now with the 5000, even at a...

I would really like to know if the new HDR10 with dynamic metadata is a mere firmware upgrade from 2.0a or is some form of new hardware needed beyond 2.0a to the HDMI stage? Seems at this point it is...

I wonder if the Tributaries optical/copper hybrid cable would have a higher success rate at 4:4:4 60 than the Celerity? Too bad it's 3x the $. I would possibly track one down, but I am concerned that...

Thanks alebonau. I will check out the link and perhaps give them a call. Kordz looks like a very well built cable. The Lux reminds me of Wire World.

I thought the Monoprice Luxe and the Cabernet were the same exact cable/Redmere chip, except the Luxe had a more upscale braided jacket?

Well, it looks like McIntosh has unveiled a new $5,500 bluray player. I guess, quite foreseeably, it's a 4K upscaling bluray player only to "match" their 10.2 gbps MX160.

You would think their...

Not because of what's in the conduit (low voltage), but because of the space the conduit runs along and joins (space below the theater and the theater room above).

When all else fails, why not try the DPL certified Ethereal MHX HDMI cable plus Gigabit Accelerator? It is more money than other options, but I wouldn't call it cost prohibitive.

That is exactly my thinking as well. No way the 5000 has that short a life cycle with a major revision. Considering the 1000/1100 remains current almost 4 years from release, the thought of the 60k...

I would think most 5000es users are you using aspect ratio: "normal" vs "2:35:1 zoom", correct?

I realize "zoom" aspect gives you the ability to use a larger screen per a given throw, more pixels...
