We've had a suitable mourning period. This is not to say that some owners may feel differently, but I've tried to look at both pictures as objectively as I can, and aside from what appears to be very correctable color issues, I just find the Elite image deeper and more engaging. This takes nothing away from the Kuro, it's still amazing.
I'd also like to make another shout out to all Elite owners, do you have significant undersaturation issues in THX mode? I found that the shootout's Elite sample had a much lower overall saturation than mine does in the same THX mode, and this was with a lower setting on my color level than theirs. There is a day and night difference.between the saturation levels of green (as evidenced by watching sports) on my unit and theirs. But it's not just green, it's all colors.
I'm trying to get to the bottom of this and looking for a logical explanation. I would think that if most Elite owners had the levels of denaturation I saw in THX mode, we'd have heard about it. IMO this was not like the much more easily missed color of cyan. It's pretty obvious to anyone that when any sport you watch has very very pale greens, you have an undersaturation issue. Again, it wasn't just greens that were affected, it was everything.
Yet I've never heard an Elite owner mention this. So is their sample the oddball, mine or is there something else that I'm just missing?
