I'm VERY impressed with how sharp eshift can look on actual UHD content. But I'm sure my current Philips player doesn't upscale like your MadVR setup. ;) I'll be interested to see the comparison...

No, I do like the look of upscaling though and I've been torn between using that or 1080p with no eshift. But today I was reminded how much I like what the Darbee does (and doesn't do) so I'm leaning...

I still think Lucy in HDR shows artifacts with those enhancements and looks overcooked.

But I did do some testing today with BDs and I agree that in some cases Enhance at 2 can cause mild...

For BD I like Enhance at 2 and Clear black on High, but I would be careful using them on HDR. I'm sure it varies on a per movie basis, but I found Lucy to be way overcooked until I turned both those...

Set up my RS620 yesterday. Coming from an RS55, I wasn't that impressed with how the 620 handled 1080p with eshift. But I really liked upscaling 1080p to 4k using the Philips player. Not overly...

I think you'll like Neural X with the 5+wides.1.4 configuration. Although I decided the wides were actually being emphasized a bit too much. This was with a manual calibration using the SR7010 test...

As mentioned, DSU does not support wides, but Neural X does. When you try out 9.1.2, also try 5+wides.1.4 (preferrably with the side surrounds behind the LP). This configuration, at least with Denon...

Anyone notice that Trolls doesn't look like it has a U.S. 3d release? Not really a movie I'm that interested in, but it would be very concerning if Fox/Dreamworks drops 3d. Dreamworks has had some of...

So it would appear that discrete Wide content in a 9ch setup is actually fairly rare, or it at least varies a lot from track to track. And it makes sense that this content would "snap" to the front...

I certainly feel that the info I'm getting from the wides is more enjoyable than what the backs would be doing. (I do have 4 speakers behind me with the side surrounds and top rears.) I think most...

I have a Marantz SR7010 using a 7.1.4 setup with wides instead of backs. The wides are active in Atmos tracks and often even more active using Neural X.

Today I was watching Mad Max and the wides...

The Denon 4300 can't do wides, but the 4200 can with a 7.1.2 setup. You just missed some great deals on the Marantz 7010, but some more might come back. Or there are refurb units out there.

Looks great, but keep in mind there is no affordable way to do 9.1.4 so at first I'd say forget the rears. And AVRs are dropping wide support. So the best choices would be a Marantz 7010 or Denon...

It looks like your back surrounds are too close to the seating to work well, especially at ear height. I would consider using wides instead, right where you have your side surround on the diagram....

Some players do let you force 3d to be played like the Oppo 103. Seems silly to not let the user decide. I mean the worst thing that could happen is a blank screen if you really didn't have a 3d...

I would ask yourself if you're happy with the TR from your low bass, say 40hz and under. The MBMs blend/integrate best if there is plenty of low bass TR to go with them. So depending on the setup,...
