  1. not sure, I tried same one loeweTV website out of curiosity and it seemed to work see below ? - you didnt go for the Loewe handbag site did you
  2. do you know what its called HW ?
  3. great to hear ! with panasonic leaving it still leaves a quality OLED option with loewe
  4. obviously no one any wiser apparently a good F1 series on netflix... will have to check out when get some time
  5. @Marc thats good news with good old fashioned television marketing ! how much more appropriate can it get marketing TVs on TVS ps do you know if they will continue on with the OLED models in their Bild series ?
  6. melody's are good in the bedroom 🥰 speaking from personal experience
  7. hmm seems no longer 4K uhd.. due to throttling to protect bandwidth.... .... really wondering why i pre paid for this thing till end of the year... should have gone for month to month option and dumped it !
  8. ah good stuff ! I thought were upto something else ah i see ! because be no chance with 10m on that one ! I can imagine not in any hurry to upgrade. but no cant future proof on hdmi at this stage the ultra high speed cable spec means being certified is mandated. And they come in about 3m length longest I have seen so far but am sure in time we will have it, though in mean time for anything we need premium certified covers that length easy. but as you said no hurry to change so might as well wait it out.
  9. yeah cant believe this either ! for $1200 including the matching centre also being sold can have a full active meridian front stage.... just add AV processor goodness ! what the heck is this still doing here
  10. wow this is one serious cetane speaker for $400. active even ! no meridian fans out there that would just grab this I would have thought !
  11. have you tried paradigms importer ? audio active ? its probably just a straight swap over of xover ? in anycase am sure could advise on the local repairer especially given they are located in melb themselves. https://www.stereo.net.au/brands/paradigm
  12. couple of reviews of n5 in the uk... from avforums, https://www.avforums.com/reviews/jvc-dla-n5-rs1000-native-4k-projector-review.17398 "JVC DLA-N5 (RS1000) Native 4K Projector Review While the JVC DLA-N5 may well be the entry-level when it comes to native 4K, the performance on offer is excellent. It might not have the WCG filter of the N7 and NX9 but it still manages to produce some of the best HDR10 images we have seen from a projector at the price point. The only small negative being an overall lack of absolute colour saturation, but it is not something you would notice in isolation and as such is probably not going to any issue for the vast majority of users. The Frame Adapt dynamic tone mapping is a game-changer for JVC and elevates their machines above the competition for balanced, nuanced and effective HDR image quality. That alone is worth the entry price. SDR as you would expect looks sublime with stunning image accuracy, detail and black levels. Yes, the black floor is ever so slightly raised compared to the outgoing X-series, but you would only notice this moving from one to the other, as we did. In all other respects, the JVC still has the best black levels of any currently available native 4K projector. Video processing is also very good with no issues when it comes to upscaling content to 4K and motion is also very good with 24fps material. There is a frame interpolation system available if you want to watch big-screen sports and this works fairly well but does add in artefacts at the highest settings. It shouldn’t be used with film or drama content. 3D playback is also very good indeed with no issues with obvious crosstalk of ghosting within images. Alita: Battle Angel looked stunning in 3D on the big screen and it is nice to see manufacturers continuing to add this to projectors like the N5. If you want to add in the wide colour gamut filter to that excellent HDR then you will need to step up to the JVC DLA-N7 which Steve reviewed for the site, but be prepared for the jump in price point. You could also consider the Sony VPL-VW570ES that remains as a current model even though we reviewed it back in 2018. It has many of the features the DLA-N5 has but I certainly feel the HDR on the JVC would sway me if I had to make the choice. Obviously, at the time of this review, it is difficult to demo any equipment, but I would recommend a demo at a specialist dealer of both before spending this much on the projector. Overall, the DLA-N5 is an excellent entry point to native 4K projection from JVC and it offers superb SDR and very good HDR picture quality. The lack of a WCG filter is not a major factor as the image quality with HDR is still some of the best we have yet seen from a projector. We are struggling to find any real negatives with the N5 and as such it comes highly recommended." Verdict. The Good Excellent SDR picture quality Excellent HDR picture quality Frame Adapt dynamic tone mapping Good calibration controls Excellent black levels and shadow details Very good 3D playback Motorised lens shift, zoom, focus The Bad No motorised lens cover Slightly lacking absolute colour saturation for HDR Auto Calibration needs to feature all high-end meters"Slightly lacking absolute colour saturation for HDR" giving it the highly recommended award. and also from uk hifi choice where given "best buy" https://uk.jvc.com/news/awards/dlan5-hcc/?_ga=2.171353184.1580654380.1586087898-248399598.1586087898
  13. interesting stuff with the treatments ! audibly any gains ? not surprised on gemini man... its pretty dividing in appeal are you still using the original kordz prs active cable ? as that is not specd to do anything beyond 4k24 surprised got it to work at all with 4k 60 ! ive for some years been running office works passive cable and it seems to pass 4k/60 no probs with pana/marantz/jvc combo ... without any hitch. if can get away with shorter than 10m ie 30ft then mono price premium certified works and certified to work. and only $56 and free delivery with amazon prime . but unlikely anything bar gemini man to push limits of what you have ... so if happy with as is ... and hated gemini man then id just keep enjoying
