ABSOLUTE ULTIMATE AV
You're right, however that does not apply here because the people involved are not incompetant amateurs. And the fact they are not incompetant amateurs is the very reason why all parties concerned have been provided with a madVR Envy during the beta development phase.@ARROW-AV
Like I wrote I have seen very significant differences depending what player was used to feed the Envy. So this may already be the reason to explain this
Imagine a person who just uses for the Envy a player that prepares the signal the wrong way and compares this then to a HTPC - this person might jump easily to wrong conclusions.
With respect to our comparisons source devices include the flagship $2,449 Pioneer UDP-LX800, OPPO 205, OPPO 203, and Kaleidescape Strato, all set to the optimum settings for outputting to the madVR Envy.
Nobody is jumping to the wrong conclusions. But if you want to believe that they are, then please by all means go right ahead. I am done here.
