So this happened last night.
Stopped by the local BB Magnolia store where they have a $250K (so they said) theater room. Sony 675 4K projector, Panamorph A lens, Stewart electric curved screen, McIntosh amps, etc.
I purchased at the store 4K UHD BluRay John Wick 2 and asked the guy for a demo, which he gladly obliged. So I sat there and watched the demo and was underwhelmed by the picture, it actually looked soft and not very bright. I even asked the guy to make sure he put in the 4K disc, and he said yes he did. I mean it looked OK but not what I was expecting.
When I got home I played the same movie on my HK2288 for a comparison. Honestly it did look better on my screen, much sharper, resolution looked higher, colors popped more, shadow detail looked great. HK2288 is a lot brighter than the Sony 675 also its not close.
I know that sounds crazy but that was my impression. I would not pay 10 times more for the Sony, don't know how much the Sony 675 goes for, maybe it was near end of it's bulb life or something, this is a discontinued model I think. The sales guy did say they had the new 285 and 385 models in, but they would not look as good as this one !
