If they spif up the enclosure, put all the connectors on the back , upgrade the chezzy power adapter, and add Ethernet for software updates, it will be worth it!

It will be the same unit.

Agreed. It would be nice if they made the case design more cabinet/rack friendly.

It's an old picture so I would also be interested in thoughts you had on the audio. It got a 100 for both from Ralph's review. So I would also be interested on your thoughts on the audio side. It is a 7.1 mix.

The pq wasn't bad at all Mike for a movie of that age it looked very good. The audio wasn't bad either. The audio is not compareable to today's current standards but it's actually not too bad. You will be suprised.

Thanks Frank. I would guess someone buys this because they want the classic in the best possible way. Not to really demonstrate the full capabilities of a system. I saw that documentary that was linked to earlier in the thread and that looked interesting.

Hi Al I got a call from my MIL last night if I could take him at 5am so by the time I start the movie ( which is late and the movie goes for 3 hours ) I won't be getting much sleep. But he's all good. Thank btw Al.

Nice score on The Avengers blu. You guys get all the good stuff first.wink.gif Looking forward to your thoughts on it. The AQ should be stellar. Sorry to hear about your FIL. I hope he's ok.

I know you were thinking about buying that Marvel 10-disc Tesseract cube briefcase set. Bad news, amigo. It's been canceled. Marvel is being sued by the company that makes the actual briefcase. So Marvel has pulled the set.frown.gif

Quote:
According to the complaint, "Images of the replica briefcase on Marvel's advertising materials, and fan video from Marvel's product display at this year's Comic-Con convention, show the plastic 'replica case' to be a close copy of Rimowa's Topas attaché case in every respect but quality -- from the proportions and coloring, to the style of the handle and latches, and, of course, in the use of the trademarked parallel ridges around the body of the case."

Rimowa is alleging trademark infringement, trademark dilution and unfair competition and is seeking to enjoin Marvel from further infringement. The plaintiff is demanding a jury trial, all profits from allegedly unlawful conduct and an award of three times plaintiff's actual damages to be proved. The company's lawyer is Anjani Mandavia.

Marvel has yet to respond to a request for comment.

Full story here.

I hope the U.S version is as good as what you got. I am really looking forward to the bass and dynamics on this one. They had better not applied a filter to it. Glad it was a great buy for you though.

I'm sure the quality will be very similar. You will enjoy this more watching it at home than at the movies.

I am not nervous about it smile.gif. Although it is not released here in the U.S until 9/25 frown.gif. I only have a 5.1 system but is this a 7.1 or 5.1 audio mix. Just wondering.
