  1. 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..
  2. 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..
  3. Yeah , but Sasha,s are to good to hide in the dark.. 😁

  5. 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..
  6. 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
  7. Manley 250 Neo Classic Mono,s are the best amps i have owned and used......would still have them if i had a 2-channel only setup!!! I used these with many speakers, the last being the Duntech Soverigns .... never had any complaints paticularly when i installed the Gold Lion KT77,s . Absolutley loved them.....☺️

Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk The Sony VW5000 laser projector, it was like looking at two different projectors, and i can tell you that this was exactly how it looked, Envy on, Envy off. No Kaleidescape, the source was a media player with UHD files.
  9. Dont get me wrong....going from the OLD static curve based HDR to the JVC DTM is a revelation......BUT going from the JVC DTM to either madVR,s HSTM or the DTM from the Lumagen is again a BIG revelation.. If you are impressed with JVC,s DTM ... you would be awed if you see what your current PJ is capable of with madVR or Lumagen...... No exaggeration!!
  10. Just some comments from an AVS member on the JVC DTM versus Lumagen versus madVR... My RS3000 is properly calibrated as my buddies NX7. The German shootout was also properly calibrated, and from what everyone said about ISE 2020, those sets ups were properly calibrated. In all three cases (and I will dismiss mine due to any personal equipment bias) there was a difference noted by pretty much everyone in attendance who expressed an opinion. My buddy who pretty much predicted that our findings were going to be dismissed, said that he was shocked. He loves his Lumagen and I also thought it looked awesome compared to the JVC DTM, which BTW, were were laughing at some scenes that just failed compared to both the Lumagen and MadVR. Again, sorry but JVCs DTM has a lot of work to catch up. So before I bow I will list the scenes we tested. And we picked these for several reasons including the lack of HDR metadata to allow to see what DTM could do without any internal guidance. The Last Jedi (first 19-20 minutes for the explosions and first view of red room) Lucy several scenes including OR room close-up, opening mixed scenes, the back lit halo around Morgan Freeman' head, the final Lucy scene against the all white room. Interstellar several space scenes and the black hole. Ready Player One, the first leg race. Mad Max Fury Road - storm and fireworks. Passengers - First 10-minutes and various other scenes such as halo room and window scene. Logan Lucky - various scenes that had cars for color saturations. John Wick 3 - Ballet scene. Atomic Blonde - neon club scene Brightburn - counselor office and kitchen scene (we both agreed that Lumagen actually beat MadVR on this one without mercy). As far as the side-by-side, I had a borrowed Lumagen Pro (4224 I believe) installed on my RS3000 to test against my PC with a RTX 2070 and MadVR. The difference between the two were quite different and obvious. I will say that the upscaling on MadVR is just, in my opinion, mind blowing. The Lumagen did not stand a chance. Sorry. When it came to DTM, MadVR came ahead in several areas as far better 3D looking image and much better HDR look. I wanted to make sure I was not biased in what I saw and I asked the owner of the Lumagen if he was happy with the look of the image that the Lumagen was throwing before I tested the MadVR and he said that he liked the image on my RS3000 better than his NX7 (granted I have an A-lens, he does not). So after it was done he also commented that the MadVR threw a better image but we both agreed that the initial set up on the Lumagen is a lot easier than the MadVR PC (not sure how easy the Envy will be and I hope it's better than a W10 PC). I am always tinkering with my MadVR settings while he has not touched his, other than to update firmwares.
  11. We will see....😁 I have just recentley upgraded my HTPC with an RTX 2080TI and can "Almost" max out every option available!!! The result is just Stunning!!!! From what i understand, the PC version of madVR ..."High End HTPC with a 2080TI" will differ very little IMAGE QUALITY wise to the Envy... This is my HTPC as of today.....not cheap either as it cost approx $6.5K to build...
  12. From Nigel ( ArrowAV) ISE2020 Old Today, 10:48 AM ARROW-AV We're Nuts About AV Join Date: Jul 2016 Posts: 4,597 Mentioned: 267 Post(s) Tagged: 0 Thread(s) Quoted: 4204 Post(s) Liked: 6850 Greeting to all from ISE 2020! So I just finished an in depth demonstration of the MadVR Envy at ISE 2020, and yes this is indeed situated within the Alcons Pro-Ribbon booth In short, the MadVR Envy is absolutely incredible. The demo was utterly mind-blowing. And this is despite the fact that the room was not perfectly blacked out (it's a trade show after all). A massive congratulations and thank you to both @lovingdvd and @madshi for all their hard work and Mathias' creative genius in developing and bringing these products to market. The improvements that MadVR Envy makes with respect to the video performance is way, way above and beyond 'just' dynamic tone-mapping with respect to HDR. The difference in video performance is not slight or subtle. It's literally as if everything is better. Furthermore, the resultant image that is produced looks practically 3D and the vanillla baseline in comparison extremely 2D. The image looks more real. The colors are better. The luminance dynamic range is very considerably increased. And this is merely the tip of the iceberg. I have to admit that I was somewhat dubious regarding how effective the claimed artificial intelligence bright highlight and shadow detail recovery and optimisation would actuall be in reality. Furthermore, when I heard that the maximum setting is labelled 'Insane' I took this to be hyperbole... but it's not. Seriously, it really IS completely INSANE! I don't know how @madshi has done it but I am convinced that voodoo is involved! One particular video clip in this regard was as shocking as being hit in the face with a baseball bat. It was a shot of clouds in the sky on a bright day, wherein with the vanilla a lot of the image is blown out to white, and seriously we are talking about 1/4 of the screen here; and yet the MadVR Envy fixed the image 100% to perfection. There were literally gasps from everyone in the room, myself included. @lovingdvd and @madshi congratulations again. You have one hell of a product here. And I hope that I am not going to upset the apple cart by saying this, but I consider it to be important. There has been very understandably a lot of comparison versus the Lumagen PRO and questioning regards which is better. Well I am going to answer that question for you. It's the MadVR Envy, pure and simple. And it's not even close. Seriously, as compared with the Lumagen PRO it's on a totally different level. Which I have to say I was somewhat expecting given the difference in raw processing power for starters, let alone @madshi genius programming and algorithms etc. Don't get me wrong. The MadVR Envy does not make Lumagen PRO any less or worse of a product that it is; wherein it really is a fantastic product. It's simply that the MadVR Envy is way, way, better. Personally, I consider the pricing to be absolutely worth it and suffice to say I ordered one immediately on the spot. I very much look forward to spending some considerable handson time with the MadVR Envy ASAP. Hands down winner of BEST NEW PRODUCT at ISE 2020!!! Very, very, well done!!!
  13. If the funds permit you to do so, then its 'definately" the way to go! ☺️ The Z1 really is a very refined and reliable package and throws an awesome image..
