I posted a while back that my Strato didn't come with movie store credit. That was incorrect. Shortly after I got it hooked up, I had 5 movie credits in my store account, although I couldn't use them...

I spoke with Kaleidescape and they have informed me they have HDR content for their demo loops, but I don't know if the full films in the store are HDR. I have a request in to them to let me know...

My Stratos did not come with store credits, but the UHD content on the store just came online and players didn't start shipping until yesterday. I don't think they are going to announce anything...

The Strato player does not do audio at all. In fact, then entire Encore line (Strato and Alto players and Terra Server) do not play audio or store audio files. The premier line does, but the premier...

You are unlikely to find anybody who has these on the floor in inventory - especially for the Strato, which was taking pre-orders with cash down months ago. Mine shipped on Friday so I should have...

Well, as for the pricing, they are not the most expensive components in a lot of systems. If you have best in class gear, then the Kaleidescape is not out of line compared to that level of gear. It...

It wasn't rocket science when they first started out 13 years ago. I built one before I purchased a Kaleidescape.

As for looking for other servers, why would I? My Kaleidescape works flawlessly...

I guess by your definition, there is no such thing as a high end amp, just a cheap amp with an expensive name plate on it.

You are pricing Kaleidescape as just hardware. Kaleidescape is software...

Hmm, I suppose if I were single, I would get to try and coin a new phase, "Kaleidescape and chill". Same concept, just a little more high end, right?

UHD 4K content will consume just 50% more bandwidth than Blu-ray, based on content storage requirements I have seen.

Let's just suppose you are right and they start broadcasting in 4k. Let's...

I don't think I will need to be reminded as it isn't a blanket statement for all time, like 640k is all the memory anybody will ever need.

I do recall the old modem days, including 300 baud. I do...

I used to post on here 5-15 times per day. Then my theater was finished. Now I have a much more rewarding use of my time.

I would love to get my parents old 40" Mitsubishi CRT and retrofit/modify it into an exposed tube set like the old Philco Predicta TV sets.

This isn't my personal screen, but it is the same size and style. Unfortunately, there are no people next to it to give it a sense of scale.
