  1. Its a Gem...... ☺️ as i previously stated.... a real treat cosidering its 1977 origins...☺️ Reaaly great job with the transition to 4k/ UHD..
  2. Yep, all a figment of your imagination... See attached pic..
  3. Frank... eventually in this case it would occur when any content was input.. A reboot /restart would cure it, then it would just appear without warning...sometimes after a HDMI failed sink??? JVC were in denial....😖
  4. One variant of the "Green Lines" .....can also have ' Red "and "multicolour"....😖
  5. Yeah the "original" Star Wars "A New Hope" 4K transfer shocked me!!! For such an old film it really has come up a treat on UHD! There is so much detail that you CAN see the limitations of what was available back in 1977..BUT its still very very impressive . The opening scenes with C3PO and R2D2 its hard not to be distracted by the sheer detail shown on there metal exteriors...☺️
  6. Had a look at the 3 original films.....A new Hope. Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.... Awesome !!!! is all i can say, image quality is superb! Increadible detail and depth . I actually think the original 3 shame the last current 3 that have been done..
  7. Thats what mates are for ☺️...make sure you have 2 extra plus yourself...
  8. Thats an interesting one! I never initially intended for the Watt Puppies to be the focus of 2 channel music, BUT they surprised me in many area,s. The Bass ........ extreamly fast and very very tight while still going quite low. Very different than the Soverigns, the Sov,s had great bass but could be a little "Slow" Midrange........Very good ....... but i think very few speakers present the midrage as well as the Sov,s Top End........... , i had heard many times on Wilson being "Bright" or even "Harsh" ..... Well not for me!! They are very very detailed and reveal a hell of alot from the source. There are many tracks i am so familiar with that i am hearing new things. VERY VERY impressive. Imaging.......... This was my biggest surprise!! The imaging of the Sov,s when setup correctley is superb........i thought the Wilson would fall down dramatically in this regard...... but their imaging / 3D effect is staggeringly good......very very surprised. All in all The Wilson Watt Puppies are a very impressive speaker , especially considering their "petite" size.........mind you they are bloody weighty little buggers......☺️ One of my close friends liked the Watt Puppies so much he wants to purchase them if i decide to move the Sasha,s in to take their place...☺️ From reading i see it seems to be a LOVE/HATE thing with WIlson,s..........i am definatley in the Love catagory..
  9. Purchased a pair of Wilson Watt Puppy 7,s and a pair of Wilson Sasha 1,s. I am re designing my theatre room so i needed a far smaller speaker footprint than the Duntech Soverigns, thus the change to the Wilson,s. I ended up placing the Wilson Watt Puppy 7,s into my theatre room ....... they are a very small speaker ( after having the Soverigns) but they are a stunningly capable speaker!! ☺️ Paired with an Esoteric Grandioso S1 the bass is very fast and articulate, and the top end detail is very impressive..... I get why some people love the Wilsons, and i get why some dislike the Wilson,s.....ME......absolutley love them...☺️ The reason for utilising the Watt Puppy,s over the Sasha,s...... the Watt Puppy,s had some small cosmetic blemishes. because of this and the fact they had to go intio a "Black Pit" theatre enviroment i had the Watt Puppy,s professsionly covered in BLACK Velvet... They actually look fantastic with this finish. The Sasha,a are unmarked "Titanium" finish.......not exactly ideal for a theatre enviroment with their super high gloss automotive finish......these are now stored for a "Rainy Day" .. The recent Bushfires have setback my theatre upgrade , but in the meantime some pics of the Wilson Watt Puppy 7,s in their new enviroment..
  10. Yeah , but Sasha,s are to good to hide in the dark.. 😁

  12. It should NOT be making any "ginding" nosie on a regular basis.....if it is , id be very concerned!. The iris gear mech is binding because it has lost its register.......if it continues contact JVC..be warned..
  13. I had this happen on an N5 that i had here ........ Seems JVC still have issues with the "Auto Iris" mech... 😖 From AVS this morning.... I don’t think this has been covered in this thread, although I haven’t read every single post, but I did post my problem some months ago and didn’t get a response so I assume this is not widely known Problem Major bug with Auto Iris function that can lower your peak output by 30 nits or potentially more. Auto Iris gets stuck at some lower value and reduces max output even if you switch to manual and completely open iris Fix On manual iris mode completely close and then open iris (may take a couple of repeats) After doing this max output returns to normal. Background I purchased an NX7 in August 2019, unfortunately it developed the Blue Line issue and needed to be replaced. Replacement arrived 10/15/19 and seemed to have similar measured output but within weeks was obviously dimmer and measured that way. I complained to JVC and they required the unit be shipped in for testing. JVC tested for a month and eventually sent me another unit, but said they couldn’t find anything wrong, but it must have measured low to them too, otherwise they wouldn’t have sent me another unit. Replacement arrived 12/16/19 - this unit had major lens shift issues and JVC immediately sent me a replacement Replacement arrived 12/23/19 this unit had similar initial output levels to the other two projectors It initially measured the following through my DCR HDR (BT2020) - High lamp/P3 = 106 nits Within a few weeks it was at HDR (BT2020) - High lamp/P3 = 90 nits Then a few weeks later @200 hours it was HDR (BT2020) - High lamp/P3 = 74 nits I was tearing my hair out. Did I have a bad bulb? Did I have another bad projector? Was everyone dealing with this light loss? I reloaded my init file and did a factory reset to no effect. Finally a few days ago in talking to Kris Deering he asked if I had tried closing and opening the iris. Wow that was it. Now HDR (BT2020) - High lamp/P3 was back to ~100+ nits Yay!!!! Kris mentioned he had seen this on two units and the only way to be sure it doesn’t happen is to leave iris on manual. Once again thanks to @Kris Deering Cheers Stephen
