  1. Yeah, I love this album, but I love all of Mastodon's albums. Seen 'em live about five times
  2. Good to see more units arriving in Australia! Congrats to all the new owners
  3. Agree, another great one from Amon. Listened to it a few times yesterday.
  4. +1 to what Al said. I started off using only 5 channels of a 7 Channel Elektra Theatre amp. Stereo performance was great with decent power. I recently changed over to an atmos setup in my home theatre adding in a 2 Channel Elektra Reference amp for the mains and using the remaining seven channels on the seven channel amp for the center/surrounds/heights. The 2 Channel Elektra amp can be bridged to mono giving 1000w RMS into 8 Ohms, so my next step is to get another 2 Channel Elektra Reference amp, bridge them both to give 1000w for the front left and right channels 😁

  7. Couldn't be bothered building a HTPC, I'll wait for the Envy. Madshi stated on AVS it will be released this year. I want a plug and play solution.
  8. I definitely haven't had anything like the stripe issue, and haven't noticed clipping of highlights with the DI on. And I agree with Kris Deering's comments regarding the yellowing issue being rarely noticeable in normal viewing. There's an interesting post by Nigel/Arrow AV on the AVS forum regarding the yellowing issue on his NX9 (with some red/green push between 8% and 17% dE). I still think it's something that JVC can fix with a firmware update. TBH if it was something that was bothering me I'd turn off the DI. The native contrast is so good compared to my old DLP projector that I wouldn't worry about losing the increased dynamic contrast from the DI. I have about 130 hours on the DLA-N7 now and have loved every moment I've done a bit more pixel peeping. What I thought might have been chromatic aberration was actually my red panel approx being 1 pixel out of alignment, easily fixed with whole panel pixel adjust. There is a tiny bit of vertical streaking which I wonder might be related to the lens shift I need to use, but it's not noticeable when viewing normal content and normal viewing positions. Looking at the QBF pattern it is sharp and resolves well. I'll agree it is not as sharp as a single chip DLP, but again I don't think it matters that much a normal viewing positions with normal content, and I'll say it again RBE is a deal breaker for me when it comes to projectors. Also, given I have foot-lamberts to spare in HDR when using high lamp I've started to use the DCI-P3 filter as I find it gives a nice improvement to colour saturation on HDR/WCG content. Personally I'm very happy with my DLA-N7 and don't have any regrets buying it! I'm still debating whether I get a Panasonic DP-UB9000 4K Blu-ray player for the tone mapping synergy it has with the new JVC native 4K projectors, or whether I wait for the MadVR Envy to be released so I can use it to dynamically tone map (probably the latter). I'm aware of another StereoNet forum member getting their DLA-N7 soon (if they haven't picked it up already), hopefully they'll be able to chime in with their experiences soon!
  9. When I watch single chip DLPs I see RBE all the time. Doesn't matter what brand or model. It drives me bonkers...
  10. This has been subsequently posted on the AVS forum. I don't think it's the right time to panic just yet
  11. Yeah, my unit has the yellowing. It's only apparent in specific circumstances, and for the most part unless it's specifically pointed out it can be hard to see. Interesting explanation regarding what's causing it. If the RGB gain controls are hard coded onto a logic board it would be impossible to fix with a firmware update. TBH I would rather have a slight yellow tinge in content on isolated occasions than constant RBE from a single chip DLP any day of the week, and three chip DLPs are incredibly expensive!
  12. Yeah I quite liked the Tribulation album, took me a bit to warm to it, but it is a good album. It's a bit more goth, raw and garage than a lot of recent metal releases from other bands.
  13. More Australian if it was 'Ken Oath 😝
  14. I do! About 100hrs now, no issues😊
