  1. Wow, I'm still running my JVC HD350.......
  2. Still got mine*, was one of the first in the country, it still gets a run on occasion when I decide there's a particular movie I want to watch and discover it's in the 'other format' on the shelf, I mean why bother replacing it if it's already HD?...... A shame you're not in Sydney, you could have given it whirl to see if it was any different! * Also still got an EP-10 & an unopened X-Box drive.....
  3. Do you still have your old Toshi HD-DVD EX1? That was one of the best upscalers ever made.......
  4. With everything you have said so far; - difficult lighting conditions - non-premium (ie. not 4K/UHD) content - seating distance - let's be honest a very modest offset (the edge of the screen at ~4m is almost directly in front in real terms) A 75" LCD is the best solution, particularly a quality unit like the Sony X95. (you could compare the Samsung Q series for a more expensive option if you want) IMHO you are unlikely to see enough benefit from the significant extra cost of going OLED in that size range unless you plan on making changes to the light control of the environment and dramatically increasing the amount of 4K/UHD you watch that you still won't be able to resolve at that distance anyway......
  5. Who cares?! That's a 65" OLED for $2400!! I thought I did well when I got mine for just under $3K....... I wonder where they got the stock from?
  6. If you have already purchased it, why are you looking back? Just enjoy the new screen!
  7. I'm hoping it gets a Bluray release at some stage as I think it has real potential from the trailer.....
  8. Read the book, you will understand.
  9. Yep, can't leave the HD-DVD player stranded! Thanks for the suggestions so far, I was thinking something along the lines of a Denon X2500H or Yamaha RVX1085 might be the go.......
  10. Hi All, I'm in the process of doing a little updating of the secondary (Lounge room) setup and among other things the AVR is past it's usefulness. I already have some new bits; - Panasonic OLED - Panasonic BP-UD420 4K player I will also be replacing the PVR (Beyonwiz) with a Fetch TV once the NBN is connected (soon). The speakers are a 5.0 setup of Paradigm Monitors so fairly efficient and easily driven. Unfortunately the Current Pioneer SC-LX71 AVR, while still working great, is just too far out of date, it doesn't even have ARC, let alone HDMI 2.X required for 4K...... All up I will require 4 HDMI inputs, 1 HDMI output, not particularly powerful or high quality, to be used primarily for TV, streaming and occasional background music. Basically I need a hub/switch between the screen and various devices that handles the audio. The lounge room is fairly acoustically compromised anyway and high quality viewing and music is reserved for the dedicated media room! I'm in no hurry and will just play musical remotes/cables/inputs in the interim until I decide (still hurting from the OLED purchase anyway). Just looking for suggestions on what's out there as I've been out of the loop for a while....... Budget? The further below $2K it is the happier I'll be! PS> I'm reasonably brand agnostic but do want decent room correction if possible. PPS> I can make what I have work, it's just, well, ya know......new stuff........
  11. This would go really well with the PRE32 I just got....... I mean the old CA 640 phono pre is quite dead and needs to be replaced.........
  12. I'm just running mine on Professional 2 while building up some hours. I found Pro1 too bright...... I have been unable to find any settings online so far.
  13. Good, I'm pretty juvenile and want to be entertained!
