  1. I believe the Australian blu-ray version of Hacksaw Ridge was not an Atmos soundtrack, unless it has been updated (or perhaps UHD). Dunkirk, even though 5.1, sounds pretty amazing, especially the aircraft!
  2. I've owned a Switch for nearly a couple of years now and I reckon it's a pretty good console. I originally played Mario Odyssey and Mario Rabbids Kingdom quite a bit until I finished them, but play the console a lot less nowadays. It can go months without being used - it's more a time restraint for me than anything to do with the console. On flights and trips away it's great, I generally save Zelda for those times. Most recent game purchase was Mario Party, which is great for the kids.
  3. I recently had the house to myself and watched Dunkirk at high volume. It was sensational - the spitfires and explosions.... wow. I was watching the blu-ray though, not sure how much the Netflix audio will affect it it as I believe it is compressed audio unlike using a disc. Some others: 13 Hours The Hurt Locker Fury
  4. I have a mate who is keen @Shane F, I'll send PM to organise the details. Edit: Apologies, I thought it was a 5063, looks to be a 3063.
  5. In a dedicated HT room used primarily for movies, AT all the way. Nothing beats the sound coming through the picture IMHO. There are people who make huge changes/compromises to avoid an AT screen just for the extra cost of the material. In the end it costs them even more and is compromised (such as having two centre speakers above and below, or a much smaller screen) than if they just paid a bit more for the AT material - as others have mentioned above. Videophiles tend to prefer perforated. Audiophiles tend to prefer woven. The Oztheatre woven AT screens take about 0.5 - 1dB off across the whole frequency range. So there's very little to even EQ.
  6. @rotur @raband @davewantsmoore Darren King (Melbourne) is your man: http://kingey1971.wixsite.com/tivorepairs He was an absolute gentleman in keeping my Tivo going after the great "switch off" and upgrading the HDD... it has been working well ever since.
  7. Do you mean the first two photos or the second two?
  8. This must be it although I wasn't aware they did this... the last blu-ray I hired was CA: Civil War and it looked like a normal blu-ray ?‍♂️
  9. Off the top of my head: The original Aus release of Gravity did not have an Atmos soundtrack. It was 5.1 or 7.1. I don't think Atmos had been released yet on domestic AVR's at time of launch. There may be a re-release. The Martian blu-ray has always had a 7.1 soundtrack. The Mad Max blu-ray has always had an Atmos soundtrack. Mission Impossible 4 blu-ray has always had an Atmos soundtrack. Unless the movie received a full "re-release" (with different packaging etc) I don't think there was a change in the soundtracks over time. If you've hired Mad Max or Misison Impossible, are you sure the VideoEzy disc is limited to 5.1/7.1? Are you basing this thought off of the back of the cover, or off the display of your AVR when playing the movie?
  10. While it's been known that some standard blu-rays lose out on the Atmos mix that their UHD counterparts get, I wasn't aware of there being the same title with different soundtracks. Outside from re-releases I assume. Do you have an example or two?
  11. Item: Martini Absorb XHD 50mm Black Acoustic Panels - 2.4m x 1.2m - http://www.csrmartini.com.au/products/acoustic-insulation-products/martini-absorb I have 6 panels (1 pack), will sell all 6 or 2 panels minimum. Location: SA - southern area, pickup only and you will need a trailer/van/whatever is needed. Price: $130 per two (pair) or $350 for all 6. Item Condition: New Reason for selling: Over-ordered Payment Method: Pickup only due to size, cash on pickup.
