JVC has been ISF'd, which tends to show these differences more.
How are your findings regarding the two mediaplayers?.
Ah right - my pj has not been ISF'd so may be more forgiving.
I love the Dune - I've got two, one running on a 60" Samsung and the other in the cinema. I use them every day and the Zapitti is more of a test device in the cinema at the moment - particularly since the new Dunes have been announced with the same chipset.
I use the Dune on both SDR & HDR material, switching the awful HDR "conversion" off and the PJ on BT.2020 and a custom Gamma (thanks to all the guys over on the RS600/500 thread - Manni, Arve et al) and to be fair it's pretty good!
In my setup I see some banding and I'm not sure of the source - seemingly it's outputting 4:2:2 12-bit but others don't see it so ymmv.
One of the problems is you can't control or see the colour subsampling settings, so what I like about the Zapitti is I can set it at 4:4:4 10 or 12 bit. I assume because that's in the android settings, the new Dunes will allow this too.
The picture quality of the Zapitti in HDR is pretty damn good - better than the Dune with it's compromises of course, but what I haven't done is a comparison in SDR.
I think overall I'm excited about trying the new Dunes and as I'd said in an earlier post, as long as they hide Android as well as Zapitti do it should be a winner.
One thing I don't like about the Zapitti is the walled garden of the interface - I have a completely changed skin (nice and flat and simple) for the Dune and I run YaDis with my own skin so I'm a bit of a control freak about such things. If the new Dunes don't allow the same flexibility with regards skinning and don't support YaDis, that could be an issue for me.
