4K UHD Blu-rays / Re: 4K Movies you own or must have.
« Last post by AVSCraig on Yesterday at 09:01:45 AM »
Late to the 4K party, so virtually all of my shiny's so far are Blu-Ray, but I previously bought 4 Blu-Rays that included 4K discs in the package, so those will be first up:  Battleship, Bladerunner 2049, Guardians of the Galaxy 2,  and Passengers.  Happy to see that two of them are on Craig's short list.   👍

Is 4K movie streaming a decent approximation of the disc experience, and are any of the 4K streaming services clearly better than others?

I really like all three of those. Haven't seen Battleship.  Can't say regarding streaming.

SV Sound had their 7.1 Prime speaker system being demo'd, with the new SB3000 subwoofer. I am always impressed with the sound of these speakers. I think they are a good value for the money too.

And most of those photos are over-exposed to show the effect .

From memory, I recall taking the photos of the Sony 1100ES trying to show what I saw in person up against the screen. For that to work I had to overexpose the shot a bit, but the other photo of the Epson/JVC it is highly overexposed, which is why the Oppo logo looks so out out focus.
