    Is there NO 4K player that doesn’t have freezing issues?!

    When I first went to 4K I purchased the LG UBK90 because it was the only reasonably priced player with Dolby Vision. I had nothing but trouble with them...them meaning 3 of them I kept taking back to Best Buy. The third time I went back I noticed that Sony had come out with the UBP-X800M2 which...

    What's the Best Slim Center Channel Speaker and Best Well Priced Subwoofer?

    Polk makes a center channel speaker number S35 that is only 4" tall...has six drivers and a tweeter...I had one and sent it back because the Klipsch I bought sounded better to my old ears...lol. The Klipsch is about 7" and very large footprint. You might like the Polk...on sale for about $250.00...

    Dolby Atmos Demo

    I have several hundred 4K discs and I know on one of them at least that had a Dolby Atmos Demo on it. It was the demo that has several leaves ( for lack of a better word) that come from all directions to form a shape. I have tried the one on you tube but it is not atmos. If anyone knows of a...

    Win an Onkyo TX-NR1030 9.2 channel Dolby Atmos AV Receiver (Redux)

    My old 7.1 just decided to go to receiver heaven after a long relationship. I had to go back to an old 5.1 receiver I still had so a new 9.1 would bring me "Back To The Future".

    A Blu-ray player [Sony BDP-S550] that will do EVERYTHING! (Verified)

    Congrats Rodney...you will like this player. As with all of them, it does not load fast, but acceptable. Excellent picture and sound !!! If you have to wait until X-Mas, you can at least buy some Blu-Ray movies. Wal-Mart has some for $10.00. JR.com has a lot of Blu-Ray movies on sale right...

    You can just use the RCA cables...the shorter the better... all these cables just add to the already cluttered rear of my componenets...just not using the surround back speaker jacks on the player should work fine for the 5.1 inputs...you should still get the improved sound qualities. JOHN

    Hey Tom...check post #154...I have this unit and it sounds great through my Denon 7.1 analog inputs...it also plays regular DVD's fine that my Toshiba A-35 HD DVD player had trouble playing...load times aren't too bad either. Hope this helps... JOHN

    Chris... Paul Hillenbrand posted the owners manual link on post # 120...go to page 66 and check out the audio output chart and you will see under multi-channel output that Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and DTS-HD Master are all output through the 7.1 channel outputs. That is how I have mine set up and...

    I don't know much about the Dolby True HD or Dts HD MA. I had my Toshiba A35 HD-DVD player hooked up to the Denon receiver through the HDMI input. Now that I have the Sony Blu-Ray hooked up to the 7.1 I believe the sound to me is awesome. It seems so much better to me and all 7 speakers are...

    Thanks for your reply Erik. I did get it working through the 7.1 inputs and the sound is awesome. I wish my Toshiba HD-DVD player sounded as good. Yes, I was one of those that thought HD-DVD would win the HD fight. Guess I was wrong again. At least I got 14 free movies out of the deal which...

    New to the site...good to see so many knowledgeable people!!! I have a question about the Sony s550 and the Pioneer BDP-51FD. These both have 7.1 analog outputs. Does the player decode DTS-HD and Dolby Tru HD and send these decoded signals to the 7.1 analog outputs or only to the HDMI? I have a...
