Here's a video comparison between the Panasonic 820 Vs the Panasonic 9000. They should be the very same video side but i see a huge difference. I tend to beleive that the 820 was somehow "pumped" in contrast (player side or tv side), they look like two different players. The 820 has more "pop" in colours and contrast but hide shadow detail and is not always natural looking on the flesh tones. The 9000 has excellent shadow detail but pale colours in comparison. What do you think?
Here's the video: If the video does not play from this window copy and paste address in a new window.
I recently got a new Samsung Q80R and have been thinking of updating my UHD player. I have the original Samsung 8500 player.
My question is, will a newer player provide any "visual" enhancements over my current one or do they all pretty much provide the same picture?
I'm.not interested in the audio upgrade only visual. Any guidance/thoughts would be appreciated.
The K8500 had some noise-reduction that was non-defeatable... since you don't need tone-mapping (more important for HDR on projectors) and Samsung doesn't support Dolby Vision, something like the original Sony X800 would probably be a solid value for you with PQ as good as anything else.
