I had a Sony model 800 4K player. Connected with ALL BlueJeansCable.com series FE Premium certified HDMI cables to at the time Mitz DLP model 73740 1080P TV. I enjoyed this setup for the past couple of years. Played many 4K UHD HDR disc that also contained Atmos audio as well.
The Mitz DLP TV having a maximum resolution of 1080P. Isn’t going to magically achieve any higher resolution than it’s capable off. But IMHO, with a 4K UHD player connected by a Premium certified HDMI cable. Playing a 4K UHD HDR media disc. This will provide a VERY high quality 1080P video signal to the TV. From my experience you will notice the picture quality on some newer bluray disc.
Technology seems to repeat this cycle with every new increase in resolution. When 1080P TV’s 1st became available at a price most consumer could afford. VERY high quality 1080P disc availability was not like what is available today. The technology, available scanning resolution of films and cost of scanning films at that time has greatly increased with the availability of films today that are scanned in 4K and in some cases 6K. Then down converted to a newer 1080P disc.
The same cycle was repeated when at the time 4K TV’s reached a price level available to most consumers , then later with 4K HDR TV’s. It seems to take longer for the technology and the costs for films to be able to be scanned at a higher resolution than the price of TV’s available at a price point where most consumers would be willing to purchase.
The same cycle for now available 8K TV’s. I haven’t seen any 8K disc availability yet. Or even a 8K player.
IMHO, I believe you will benefit from the newer technology. For ME, I have been purchasing 4K UHD HDR and Dolby Vision disc for a couple years now. I patiently wait for the disc to reach a price point I am comfortable with. I now have over 100 4K disc in my collection. I realized that one day I would purchase a new 4K UHD HDR and Dolby Vision TV. That day has come. I have been enjoying the newer technology. The Sony 85X850G TV and Sony 800M2 player I bought a month ago. The picture quality has been jaw dropping and just stunning. So much so that I plan to rewatch all the 4K disc. I have already enjoyed with my previous Mitz 1080P TV. With the added bonus of 7.2.4 Atmos audio. It is truly an experience for both the eyes and ears.
