    Pre-Order Amazon Women On The Moon (1987) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    It's a really funny movie. I got so tired of waiting for this release that I bought a Wee-jun B copy a few months back.

    Region Free Multi Format DVD/Blu ray player

    ....and I had a Sony 9000ES DVD-SACD player early in this century....always a 9000 forever!

    Region Free Multi Format DVD/Blu ray player

    I have one of those and that thought had crossed my mind. I think there's some kind of love for the number 9000 in japan...??? Maybe they think all people love the number 9000? I had a Marantz 9000 too....

    Region Free Multi Format DVD/Blu ray player

    I have my model numbers scrambled and so does Sony. Mine is a UBS-X1100ES. It does UHD-BD. Sony gets stuck on loving certain numbers that I presume they deem lucky, appealing, or something else too....??? Having multiple 1100 models is confusing. Sony loves 9000. They're always looking for a new...

    Region Free Multi Format DVD/Blu ray player

    I got the same one but from 220 Electronics. I've only had mine about 6 weeks. It's done everything right except it kept freezing towards the end of Spartacus 4K a few days ago. It must need new Firmware but I have the latest. I had to finish the show with one of my Panasonic players. I really...

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    I've had a change of opinion about up-firing Atmos speakers. I'm getting much better results since I switched processors. I was using an Onkyo 1030 receiver for processing. I became disgruntled with it for a variety of reasons. It's video processing/pass-through was dragging down the quality of...

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    I've only ever had separates. Any receiver I've ever had was used as a pre. My first surround system, from the late 80's, was a Pioneer VSX-5000 receiver, two S.A.E. 2x100 power amps, Pioneer Laserdisc player, and 4 Sony tower speakers. That was before Pro-Logic. It's all just evolved from...

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    In the long run, separates will be cheaper. They'll last much longer on average. Upgrades will be easier once you go separate. All you have to change is the processor unless the channel count goes up. My main amp, a Rotel 990, 3 x 200 watt unit has been in continuous use since 1994. My Sony ES...

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    Josh Zyber over at High Def Digest made his system with 6 Atmos speakers before a processor supported more than four. You could ask him how he did it. You really don't need more than four channels in my estimation. I'd put some accent lights that dim in the two extra holes. 4 ceiling speakers...

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    You don't need 6 ceiling speakers unless your room is very large.

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    I watched the Saving Private Ryan UHD-BD last night on my big Atmos system, impressive!

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    You gave me an excuse to practice some more with my new camera. The main amps are a Rotel 993, 3 x 200 WPC and a Sony ES 55 that's rated at 110 WPC but behaves like a much bigger beast, more like 200 WPC. I keep adding stereo amps every time the channel count goes up. I think the amp race is...

    Dolby Atmos: Determined At All Costs

    I've been considering that. I think there's at least 4 speaker options for me to pick off the 1030's menu. The words Top-Middle might have been one of the options....? .....or, something like that. I'm using Dolby Enabled Speakers since the little Atmos speakers are sitting atop my mains. I made...
