  1. Stuber On the hand, this movie was quite unnecessary and I felt it was a bit draggy if someone was an eye surgeon I think he would be squirming and I guess only Uber will be happy with this show about a cop who corrals his Uber driver to fetch him around as he hunts down a criminal. He needs the driver who is a lot like the taxi driver from Deadpool, as he just had refractive surgery and can’t see well. 2/5
  2. Been on the road so I haven’t written as many reviews but Spider-Man stuck in my mind as one of the best movies of 2019: https://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2019/10/spiderman-far-from-home-movie-review.html?m=1 highly recommended
  3. I owned that series before and it had a big bass and an equally prominent treble you have to partner them with a warm amp unless high treble notes are your thing..
  4. Thanks, I got a less pleasant experience sharing this finding on AVS. Somehow, they couldn't accept the bit rates and that Apple TV fared worse.. VPN is a useful thing when you wish to lock into the US shows.. it's really quite useful. As always YMMV ... I went to my friend to double and he confirms that he gets 60-80 mps on his Fire Stick... impressive numbers I'll say.
  5. Try hanging the speakers see my signature for what I use ..
  6. Whilst physical media is not bound for the Smithsonian yet, streaming has taken off in a big way and you can have your ice cream in many different flavours now.. The current main players in this world of movie streaming are 1 - Apple TV and the iTunes ecosystem 2- Google 3- Amazon Video So, the million dollar question is are they all the same? Well a friend and I decided to do an informal comparison. He had access to VPN and we could use all three apps on my Sony, which can do very good HDR and Dolby Vision playback. It’s a light canon and you can read about my review below. https://peteswrite.blogspot.com/2019/09/apple-tv-vs-movie-anywhere-vs-amazon.html Also when we were comparing HDR vs DV, there was a difference... What about you? Do you feel the same?
  7. I've never met anyone who didn't feel he could do with a larger set.. size matters I guess...
  8. That would be a good choice.. I'm happy with my Z9D but I've always pined for a few extra inches...

  10. I’ve just calibrated my Sony Z9D And it’s amazing Excellent before but now it’s way better. You can definitely tell the difference especially if you can get close to 1000 nits.
  11. Nice, but there's no Apple TV app right?
  12. The Monitor Audio FX bipoles will be a slim, low profile speaker that mounts directly onto your wall. I use the Silver FX, which can fit in a narrow corridor.
