    Thanks for sharing this, Robert_Zohn . Any idea on expected availability? Are these next year's models, or further out?

    Sony announces pricing and availability on select 2021 OLED and LED TVs

    Looks good, Robert_Zohn ! Thinking you meant to say 1st allocation of X90J, though :) I would be interested in your initial impressions as to how it compares to the 2020 X900H if/when you get a demo unit set up... Major improvements, or just incremental?

    Sony announces new TV models and ‘Cognitive Processor XR’

    Thanks for that info, Robert. Unfortunately, the A90J is is a bit out of my budget, as much as I would love to go for it. The X90J is probably more in line with what I want to spend for a 65-inch... any initial impressions as to how it will compare to the 2020 X900H? Major improvements, or...

    Sony announces new TV models and ‘Cognitive Processor XR’

    @Robert_Zohn (or anyone else who might know), I'm very interested in Sony's 2021 lineup, but I'm a little concerned about Sony's descriptions about what the XR processor does with all this AI-based image enhancement and how that might affect creator's intent with respect to reproducing what's...

    Sony 2020 TV line-up, with surprise news

    Wow, those are some tempting prices on the 65" A8H and the 75" X900! It seems lots of sites say to go bigger if you can at expense of picture quality (within reason), but is going down to 65" for OLED worth it if choosing between these two? But I do like the future-proofed HDMI and ATSC tuner...

    Avatar: The Way of Water (2022)

    Seems half the people replying to his twitter update about this delay are saying the same thing. Maybe he will finally get the hint!

    Denon announces new 2020 receivers with HDMI 2.1 and 8K 60fps/4K 120fps

    Robert, Are you planning to carry the AVR-S960H model as well? I'm not seeing a link or spec sheet for that one on your Denon 2020 webpage. Thanks.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ It's a Wonderful Life (Corrected)-- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Your pics with HDR (bottom) look better to me than those without (top) as far as grayscale... the top pics have a lot of detail getting lost in the dark areas. So what is your specific complaint about the HDR pics? Do you actually prefer the look without HDR, or are they both bad in your...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ It's a Wonderful Life (Corrected)-- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    Mr. Harris, Your thoughts on this controversy have been interesting and appreciated, and your above post in particular brings the following question to mind: Is the true goal (in your opinion) of any film restoration that starts with the original negative to make the final master look like a...

    Star Trek films on Blu-Ray... what we know so far

    Well I hope they at least do the next-best (or better?) thing and release a box set this year of all the TOS-crew films remastered in 4k UHD. That would be a fitting celebration of the 40th anniversary of TOS crew's debut on the big screen!

    oh why not....THE ABYSS

    Not that we should get our hopes up based on the history of this never-happening release, but I stole this link from a post at the blu-ray forums: https://www.instagram.com/p/Buji4C_gkc_/?utm_source=ig_embed&utm_medium=loading (Skip Kimball is the colorist Lightstorm/Cameron have been using...

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ 2001: a space odyssey -- in 4k UHD Blu-ray

    I don't disagree, Robert, but a known perfectionist like Kubrick would probably object to the error were he still alive. Something for WB and Leon Vitali/Kubrick estate to hash out, I guess.
