There's a guy in the top threads posting.. who was IP banned..

Having a legendary breakdown...

A/V have guys going insane.
TVs are srs business :rolleyes:

Al, you were right about the warriors. If Sony wants oled to fly off the shelves they should just play the first five minutes of that movie on loop next to any LCD. Total torture test and a great movie!

Your 940E can make SDR BD look extremely better with its X1e chip.. don't rule them out..
I get what you're saying, and I utilize enhancement features...

But what this guy is getting at, as many other diehards here are, is the accurate preservation of SDR content at 100 nit rec 709 color space and recreating the SDR content pixel for pixel as intended by the content grader - which to be quite frank, looks ugly and awful by modern standards.

Modern TVs should always be improving algorithms to make old stuff look better, but that in turn ruins the accuracy and intent of the original content, which is typically not what someone who sits in a dark room watching at a calibrated 100 nit peak brightness is looking for anyways. But, to me personally, paying $6,000 on a 2017 tv to watch SDR content in the dark at 100 nit rec 709 seems like a total waste of money.

I get why people do it, but most people aren't going to spend thousands on a plane to see that perfectly smooth roll on the runway.

I keep hearing about people complaining about a $6k TV. Well if your paying$6k your getting ripped off. But let's think about the price of an a1e compared to a kuro with inflation....I bet they match up, and you are gaining 5 inches. You wanna play, you gotta pay!

Preferred HDMI cable?

For my home theater upgrade, I obviously have the A1E 65". Along with that, I purchased a Yamaha RX-3060 and the Sony UBP-X800. Naturally, I used the Yamaha for source switching and am having a minor issue when watching from the X800 through the Yamaha, whether it's on UHD Blu-ray or Netflix or Amazon on the X800. The image disappears for a second. Audio continues.

The cable I have from the Yamaha to the Sony TV is a: Aurum Ultra Series - High Speed HDMI Cable (25 feet) With Ethernet - CL3 Certified - Supports 3D and Audio Return Channel
From the X800 to the Yamaha I purchased: SecurOMax HDMI Cable 6ft - HDMI 2.0 (4K) Ready - 28AWG Braided Cord - High Speed 18Gbps - Gold Plated Connectors - Ethernet, Audio Return - Video 4K 2160p, HD 1080p, 3D - Xbox PlayStation PS3 PS4 PC Apple TV

I'm not sure of the quality of these cables. Furthermore there could be a problem with the Yamaha. I will try to run a cable directly from the X800 to the TV to see if that's an issue.

But just in case it turns out to be the cables, what is your choice of HDMI cable?

I would highly recommend using the X800 with both HDMI ports, 1 directly to the A1E and the 2nd for audio only to your Yamaha.

Video quality on OLED is very dependent on the most direct signal possible.
Yes. That is a good point. For now the X800 will be the central point of 4K, other than the apps built into the TV. But, I also have an Intel NUC Skull Canyon and am looking at switching to 4K on it provided Iris Pro 580 can support 4K.

Am now reading up on HDMI Q&A test reports thread on HDMI cables. Very good read here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/168-hdmi-q-one-connector-world/2834097-test-reports-hdmi-cables-properly-reliably-support-18gbps-hdmi-2-0b.html

If Rec.709 (SDR) alone is capable of a maximum of 16.78 million colors, why do you feel 1 of them (the color gray) affect the ability to display the other 16,779,999?

Is there just too extreme of expectations here?
Pink was a problem on oleds a few years back from whst i seen on the owners pictures theres a serious problem with the A1. Pink tint Wont go away or is possible to calibrate away.

Thats why checking with slides is so important before a return Window is over.

No one with an A1 has complained about any tinting in their viewing.

In fact we were complimenting Sony for having a great QC system as all of our gray slides in the owners thread are identical.

There's no issue so far from satisfied owners with any pink tints.
Well then they should look closer :rolleyes: its all over they pictures.

In fact we were complimenting Sony for having a great QC system as all of our gray slides in the owners thread are within an identical ratio. Perhaps what you see in the pictures are a result of this identical ratio.

There's no issue so far from satisfied owners with any pink tints being visible when in viewing content.
Perfect test for tint/white contamination is at the 2minute mark in Casino Royale. The entire scene has a slight sepia tone, but if you have any tinting problems you'll see shifts in the color in this scene, and in particular this frame. I had to send back a bunch of LG EF9500 because of yellow stripe and/or bad tinting.



Another good one is basically the entire snow scene in Inception, especially when they are running from the guys on snowmobiles.

Preferred HDMI cable?...
Do check that other thread out you have found here for longer-length cable testing (shorter lengths are promised next) and more discussion.

FWIW, I am using Monoprice 6' high-speed certified premium cables from each component to my Denon AVR, and have a single BJC Series 1 premium 25' cable running through the wall/ceiling from my AVR to A1E. The only issue I had was ensuring the thicker Monoprice cables themselves did not have any undo twist, so each was properly pressure seated into the female connection point on each component. After that learning experience, I have had zero HDCP 2.2 or visual quality issues pushing anything I have at my A1E.

Maybe your computer monitor needs calibration which you're viewing the photos on?

How do I know the device you're using to view the pics doesn't have a pink tint issue?
When you had a few pink oleds you se it instant.
Well the EU ones looks better on avf forum maybe you USA A1 owners should contact Sony USA and notify them of this issue.
