Thanks guys. Hopefully some day biggrin.gif. But now it's more of a kick ass audio system with a really good looking 42in TV. The pic does look really stellar BTW.

A good audio system can make any size pic look grand, whilst a big screen with a not so good audio can take the life out of a movie.

This happened to me with the latter, i was invited ( actually all there clients ) to see batman TDK ( First time watching it ) by our accountants and they picked this theatre that was dated back from the 70's. The screen was big, but the audio was horrible. The bass was muddy, the centre was low and the surrounds crackled. I hated that movie as did everyone else.
But when i rented it played it at home i loved it, i ended up buying it.

I agree. I watched Iron Man 2 today. Even though it is small, the picture did look really good. But the sound really put it over the top. I knew I would be in a small room for awhile so I knew I had to really make the audio top notch. Almost there but I just have a few things to do. That is unless I make a major change like different amps at some point. But I am happy, as I sure you am as well. You ordered that video thing right? I am looking forward to reading you thoughts on that.

No, its coming out the same time as the rest of them dr darbee told me, Im happy the way things are at the moment I just dont want be adjusting the darbee for every film. Not every film on blu ray is perfect and I'm sure adjustments have to be made.

I agree Frank. I still have a more regular DVD's then BR's at this point, and not all of them look the same or look really good. Dialing in settings for different movies would be a pain. I am sure your projector looks fantastic as is. I know you have it calibrated and you have that great screen. The picture probably looks awesome as is. It's great that you hit the non-upgrade phase. Now, it may not last forever tongue.gif. but at least it will last for a while.

I just have a few small things I want to do and then I will be done. If I make any other changes they would have to be major like new speakers or amps. But at this point I am not there yet. I am just sitting back and enjoying the system. I do think that adding the Crowson was a nice indulgence though biggrin.gif. I did not need it but it sure makes movies more fun and it makes me forget that I am looking at a 42in TV. So keep on enjoying that system. I guess the only think you could do is maybe a newer projector that is 4k like the JVC RS55. But like I said, I am sure your picture looks out of this world.

Well that's the thing mike, im sure the darbee does a great job but i question some movies out there that are not released the way many of us like to watch them, how does it fix that without touching the settings? Also even some of the good quality ones have scenes that are not up to scratch, can ruin your whole movie experience. I was told with dvd it does an excellent job but with blu ray just a slight improvement. Im taking a step back and just wait it out for 4k.

One day i would love to get 4K native, could be awhile bu im happy to wait. I know of Sony but that is 15K but also does it upscale to 4k? I have 600+ blu rays and im not going to replace them with 4k blu rays. So i will definitely require a good upscaler smile.gif

JVC has a 4K native projector, but it's $8,000 U.S. It also up converts to 4K as well.

Just a thought for the future, If you look at the specs and features, it does look like it has a lot of features. Even if I did not use the 3D part, and I wanted a projector, I would probably try and save up for something like that.

Thanks for that mike i didnt even know jvc released one, I wouldn't want the 3d part but the 4k upscale interests me. Going to read some more.

No problem. Just because I can't get one doesn't mean I can't help other people get one.

I hear what you're saying. In my old age, I'm more of a set it and forget it type too. I will play with the Darblet when I first get it. But I anticipate I will end up leaving it on one setting, then putting my feet up and enjoying my crystal clear and sharp picture.wink.gif

Also, as far as 4k projectors go. Gary Reber from Widescreen Review uses the JVC RS65 and several members here use the Sony 1000ES. Both of which are their companies flagship 4k projectors, and both of which get used with the Darblet to fantastic results.

Hi Frank,

I'm going to check out Audioguy's system on Thursday. He owns the JVC RS55 which also has the capability of upconverting to 4K. I will be happy to report back my findings.

Well I will be waiting for you guys to give me a review. I just hope that is the case, but im still questioning how does it work with certain scenes that are grainy/noise?

Please do Al, im curious to read your thoughts on the 4K plus with the Darblet and how it handles the grain/noise esp in dark scenes.

Time to trade in your VHS tapes. What movies are you watching that are so grainy and noisy?

Not every blu ray is perfect. Some of the old released are not 100% restored the way we all like them. Not only that most current releases are perfect. Like I said im happy to wait for most reviews, if blu ray is a big day and night difference I'll get one. I don't watch SD material nor do I watch TV in my room so if it benefits are for that than its no good for me.

For me I jumped in pretty quick without getting more info from people I know. If you tell me waboman and the people I know on this forum that it's night and day difference on blu ray I'll reorder one without hesitation. For know I'm happy to wait.

You know you can switch the Darblet off with the touch of a button.wink.gif But I get what you're saying. I do watch a lot of tv on my projector. Especially sports. I ordered my HDMI cable today and hopefully I will have my Darbee by the weekend and can give you a full report shortly thereafter.

Bugger it!! I saw some nice shots from a member on the Darbee thread and looked quite good. Pre-ordered again. Im just going to have to see this for myself. If I dont like it I will sell it.
post #689 of 1228
Awe man. Can't wait to read your thoughts on it. To be honest, I had a feeling that you would re order it biggrin.gif.

I went to the darbee thread and saw some screenshots that impressed me by avs member so i thought bugger it i will try it myself. If i don't like it i could re sell it quite easy. Im hoping that i have to set it once and that's it. I posted that question on that thread so Im hoping to get an answer soon.
