  1. Was it the black heaven model? There are other models like black onyx and black diamond which look different. I have very sensitive hearing and have not noticed any shutter buzz whatsoever. Hope it doesn't develop ๐Ÿ˜•
  2. I recently purchased 2 pairs of these Hi-Shock Black Heaven (one first to trial) https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B013R9VTRS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 They work very well with my Sony VW270ES and currently have a very attractive price tag
  3. We watched this today on the new 4K PJ. Loved the film, though I found the presentation a mixed bag. There were some very long, dark and music-less scenes which seemed to jar slightly with the brighter sections involving the mission and flight etc. I am sure that this was intentional to display Armstrong's emotional gravity and isolation. The opening sequence was so intense. All I could do was gape and grip the armrests. The rudimentary tech vibe was brilliantly created. The creaking and rattling of the Gemini 8 was scary. The guts of these people was unreal. That was the key impact for me. When we watch our ISS HD pics with all the fun (somersaulting in zero gravity etc) and super hi-tech equipment, it almost seems trivial in comparison with the early NASA stuff. This will be something to re-watch in a couple of years for me. It may even make more impact when knowing what to expect. Great film that resonated with me. Remember having the TV wheeled in to the Grade 5 classroom (such a treat), to see the broadcast.
  4. Well, decided to put a bit more energy into this issue and have had success. I was running firmware on the 93, one back from the last available. Loaded that up and did a factory reset. Put all my original settings back in, and voila, the audio was there. No 4K upscaling at this stage, so enabled the I/P scaler on the 4300 and now have upscaling and audio. Yey! Still don't know what worked (firmware update or factory reset), but I'm happy. Thanks for all the suggestions.
  5. Thanks Quark, but unfortunately, no go. I've spent so much time on it now, I think I'm over it. Will just use the Panasonic PJ when needing to view Region A material. May upgrade to a more modern Region Free player down the track.
  6. I don't know anything about your speakers, but this company in Port Melbourne have done great work for me in the past. https://www.speakerbits.com
  7. Bringing up an older thread here, but am stuck on what would appear to be a compatibility issue with the 4300, the new Sony 270ES PJ and my Oppo 93. Cannot get audio from the Oppo through the 4300 connected to the Sony PJ. Have tried everything. Running HDMI 1 video only(direct to the display)/ HDMI 2 audio only, HDMI 1 to do both through the 4300 including various combinations of settings on both - all to no avail. Tried different startup sequences (for handshake) also. The Oppo displays the correct BD data on the front panel, but the 4300 sees the input as ANA even thought the HDMI connection is chosen in the menu displaying "unknown" in the input info section. At first, I couldn't get sound from my older Sony BDP790 either, but after reading some info on AVS forums, set the projector HDMI signal format to "standard" instead of "enhanced" and all began to work. Of course this means that the PQ is limited when upscaling from this source. Unfortunately, this method made no difference to the lack of audio from the Oppo. It's not too much of a problem as I have the Sony UBPX800 which plays everything faultlessly. The "no audio" issue from the Oppo is however, an enigma and I would dearly love to have my old Oppo Region A available for all the multitude of discs I own that are region locked. This post must sound like a mess. Much like my head after 3 hours of trying to get it to work ๐Ÿ˜– Any ideas, much appreciated.
  8. Glad to see the discount is reinstated. Thanks Keith. Too late for me though ๐Ÿคจ Must reinstate my "totally non noob" status here by saying I did know what OF was, but unsure of how it worked with HDMI as I have only had experience with OF using Toslink. The Ruipro cable is awesome! We had a quick try of it before pulling soffit star ceiling baffles off - just to make sure all was working OK. Can't believe what sort of images we are seeing with the most rudimentary of setup situations ๐Ÿคฉ. Thanks for all the responses and info re the cable. I am so happy that we lashed out on something that was certain to work, rather than be potentially disappointed with another type of cable
  9. Thanks for all the responses. Will go the ruipro 10m, but unfortunately, the discount code is expired ๐Ÿ™
  10. Thankyou. I have definitely been in a techno vacuum for way too long. Must get up to speed ๐Ÿ™„
  11. Please forgive my ignorance here, but what is OF HDMI cable? Do all HDMI ports relate to it? I am wanting to connect a 10m cable from a Denon 4300H to my new Sony VW270ES 4K PJ and don't want to leave anything to chance. The Ruprio cable seems to be the ultimate "no problems" choice, but I don't understand the technology. Do I just need the cable, or is there other components necessary for the connection? Thanks in advance for any members who can shed some light.
  12. LOL. I guess the cabling will be a "suck it and see" arrangement. So glad that you are pleased with the PJ. I have really hung out for the reduced prices here, but now have so many 4K discs (wanting the Atmos tracks), that I can't wait any longer ๐Ÿ˜‹ Interested to hear any thoughts on the unit/set-up, as your journey continues.
  13. That's great to hear. We are currently looking at our first foray into 4K PJ's with this unit and noticed that the Bravia/headphones offer, has been extended until late February How have you mounted your 270? We use a Pivoting TV wall mount for our Panasonic 8000, but the Sony is another 6kg or so ๐Ÿ˜•. What length and brand of cable are you using? We currently have 3 x 10m HDMI cables (of the cheaper variety) in the HT, but I don't think that they will cut the mustard with 4K. Thanks in advance for any response.
  14. https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Solo-A-Star-Wars-Story-4K-Blu-ray/205706/#Review https://www.avsforum.com/forum/187-official-avs-foruma-blu-ray-disc-reviews/3003246-solo-star-wars-story-ultra-hd-blu-ray-review.html ๐Ÿ˜ Hard to imagine on such a high profile release, but from memory, it was a bit of a dull presentation at the theatre and it would appear that Disney typically "pedal back" with the audio.
  15. Looking very nice indeed! Do you have any photos of the room from start to finish? Always interesting to see the process. Are all the panels on the screen wall AT fabric? Looks very smooth and urbane. The projector platform really fits in nicely. Must be quite strong as the BenQ looks large. You must be thrilled.
