The resolution and the color saturations are incredible. It's as big a leap as going from my old rear-projection 50" Pioneer TV to my first projector, a Sony VPL HS-20, 720p "HiDef" projector back in 2003.
BTW, a while back we talked about PLEX and sharing some files. Is that still a possibility? I now have a Roku Ultra with PLEX installed, but I haven't used it. Should I? Do I need a PC for file storage?
Great choice, Craig! Yeah, when the Mrs. recognizes any difference, it’s a monumental achievement! Are you looking at a Lumagen or MadVR Envy to take your 4k HDR to the next level? If not, you will soon!
Sure—I have a library of at least 50 or 60 demo scenes I’ve created (twelve of which you experienced at last year’s G2G) that are great for gauging audio and 4k/HDR performance. Once you sign up, email/PM/text me the email address you use to sign up and I’ll give you access to that library. I’d definitely recommend a NAS instead of a PC (I know the old Baetis used onboard storage but these days, the standalone NAS is the best way to take advantage of digital files if you plan to import your 4k discs). I’ve tried a 2013-era Synology and a Western Digital “user friendly” media NAS—neither were powerful enough for 4k. The only one that works well for full uncompressed 4k HDR and Atmos/DTS-x is the Western Digital PR4100. I know there are some newer Synologies (Audioguy has one) that also work.
