It is with great pleasure I begin an official Owner’s thread of madVR’s new video processor the Envy. From unboxing to installing the entire set up was a breeze. My main goal was to improve football and also have a great solution for minimizing black bars when we watch movies. I had been using the Oppo 203 1.2 Zoom mode to accomplish it when along came the Envy which automatically does it on its own. And of course I wanted to consider DTM since I have been using the various tweaks of my Sony projectors to get the best out of the image. Dynamic Tone Mapping has been an amazing experience with the Envy. Darker movies suddenly come alive in the shadows. We watch a lot of horror movies and the Envy effortlessly made our movie experiences next level. The best about the Envy I can say was for the most part this was all plug and play. Oh and football became quite the experience at home. Many here who know me remember I have always been an “eye candy extremist“ who loves the pop with sports. Uniforms, grass/turf and helmets have never looked better. Clear, vivid and very detailed.
Currently I am working on my Sony 915ES with Envy report and had a little delay when our son Dallas was born last week. I will add more to this thread but look forward to Owner’s sharing settings and experiences. I will post some of mine very soon...
Also congratulations to madVR for winning Cedia’s best new hardware product award. Well deserved!
