Streaming vs Buying BR

Hi guys, I've been long gone from "AV Life" some years now, and came back to build rebuild my HT and get updated.

The thing is, as always want the best quality possible in sound and image, also would like to not have to fill a cabinet with movies.

So question is, I see a lot of you guys buying the movies digitaly in itunes with 4k versions etc, but how does it compare with the blurays? What do you guys prefer?

The physical discs usually have higher bitrates for their respective resolution compared to streaming. Whether you see the difference or not depends on your screen size and viewing distance (for the most part). Audio is another thing. I don't believe any streaming services offer uncompressed movie audio - more network bandwith needed.

Make me grow brainiac fingers, but with more hair!
