    Thank you, Robert! I just bought the UB820 to pair with my NX-7.

    In the market for a 4k projector

    I was looking into whether I should pair the JVC NX-7 with a Panasonic 4k player. I read somewhere that newer firmware updates to the NX-7 mean that the Panasonic 4k player optimizer is no longer used?

    Need help with a large bonus room

    UHD Review A Few Words About A few words about...™ Pirates of the Caribbean - The Curse of the Black Pearl -- in 4k UHD

    Wow. I'm really disappointed to hear this. Back in the early days of Blu-Ray, I used to use the Black Pearl Blu-Ray to demo the improvements over DVD. Thank you for your review, Robert!

    In the market for a 4k projector

    Gregg convinced me that I needed a JVC RS-2000 aka DLA-NX7. I know it is going to be awesome. Thank you to everyone for the information you shared in here.

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    Sam, I'm halfway through your podcast and the information has been very helpful. Gregg already sold me on a nice 2:35 screen, but now I definitely want some manual masking panels. Gregg also convinced me to just block the middle window and not bother with a motorized screen.

    B&W Speaker upgrade questions

    Thanks everyone for your input. Gregg Loewen talked me off the ledge and recommended just looking for some used B&W DM-601's to make 7 speakers. My wife got on facebook marketplace and found me a guy locally who sold me two B&W DM-603 towers for $350. The seller was very friendly and had...

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    I really appreciate all of the advice and recommendations that everyone has given me in here. Gregg Loewen graciously spent a lot of time on the phone with me on Tuesday and helped me focus on what I needed to start with. I am getting the Denon AVR-X6700H. I definitely have an eye on those...

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    Sam, I look forward to hearing the podcast. Gregg, If I don't go motorized, I think I have to block the two windows along the 20' wall. Should I look into a different layout?

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    Thank you for all of the suggestions. If I go with the XPA-DR2 for the mains, what would you recommend that I use for my center channel?

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    Thanks. That's what I figured. While I'm upgrading my equipment, I've gotten the bug to upgrade my 20+ year old speakers too. If I splurge on something crazy like the B&W 702 S2 or 702 Signature, will the Emotiva amplifiers work alright with them? Emotiva's 20% off sale ends soon. It is...

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    I really appreciate the advice given here. I need to look at the differences between the various Denon receivers. Should I be at all concerned about the fact that Denon uses Audyssey room correction when others like Dirac are supposed to be better?

    B&W Speaker upgrade questions

    Hi everyone! I currently have a 5.1 setup that consists of the following: Mains: B&W CDM 7SE Center: B&W CDM CSE Rear: B&W DM601 Sub: SVS 16-46PC with upgraded (ultra?) driver I am going to be building a home theater room and want to upgrade to 7.1.4. I know I should get a second subwoofer...

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    I really appreciate the recommendations. I will check out Stewart, Draper, and Elite Screens. The majority of my viewing will be movies. 2.35.1 is intriguing, but 16:9 seems like a less complicated screen size - especially if I get a motorized screen.

    Looking for 120" screen recommendations

    Hi everyone! Our new house has a large bonus room approximately 20'x27' over the garage. I'm going to turn it into a dedicated home theater room with a pinball machine in the back. I am thinking about getting a motorized screen that will come down in front of some windows on the 20' wall. We...

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    John, I think I hear you saying that this would be a good choice for amplifiers: Emotiva XPA-3 $1,300 - amplifier for front 3 speakers Emotiva BasX A4 - $550 - amplifier for 4 surround speakers So this leaves a lot of room for an atmos speaker amplifier and should I be looking at a...

    I had not even thought about the options that you guys are suggesting. Thank you for the ideas. Our new house has a large bonus room approximately 20'x27' over the garage. I'm going to turn it into a dedicated home theater room with a pinball machine in the back. I am going to get a...

    Does anybody have an opinion on the JVC LX-NZ3B?

    Looking for advice on Atmos receiver or separates?

    I am looking to set up a nice home theater room and upgrade my 5.1 system to a 7.1.4 system. The Denon AVR-X6700H looks like it could get the job done. Moving into the world of separates is intimidating and the costs seem like they can get out of control really quickly, but I'd love to hear...

    Need help with a large bonus room

    I got overwhelmed so things are proceeding rather slowly on my bonus room home theater room project. Has it really been over a year and a half since my initial post??? :) Some ideas are becoming more concrete, though. Here's what I'm thinking at the moment. I think I'm going to get a...

    In the market for a 4k projector

    Hi everyone! Covid put a hold on my plans for turning my bonus room into a Home Theater room, but my plans are starting up again. I'd say that my projector budget is capped at $6k, but $5k is more appealing to my wife. :) Have your projector recommendations changed in the past year? Should...

    Pre-Order The Masque of the Red Death (1964) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    I own the Vincent Price 1 set, but it is cool that they're re-releasing the Out of Print set in a different form. Masque of the Red Death has a longer cut of the film, and Shout has said they'll be adding supplements to the other titles, too. It is a real shame that they've lost the rights to...

    Pre-Order Event Horizon Collector's Edition (1997) (Blu-ray) Available for Preorder

    The current Blu-Ray is a pretty nice special edition, which includes a commentary and feature length documentary among other things, so the bar is already set pretty high. Of course the Director's Cut, or even just the stand-alone cut footage, would be a grail release for me. Paul WS Anderson...

    Wild Palms...Finally on 10/05 (MERGED)

    I just have to say that I'm overjoyed that Kino Lorber is releasing Wild Palms on Blu-Ray with a new 2k transfer and audio commentaries! I've loved this show ever since it first aired and I'd always assumed that the DVD, which seemed to share the same video transfer as the laserdisc, was the...

    In the market for a 4k projector

    I was thinking the exact same thing. I've been a member of this forum for a long time and have been on some of the amazing trips but tend to only post when I'm working on upgrades. The JVC projector looks amazing, but at this point I'm feeling like the Epson is closer to what I actually want...

    In the market for a 4k projector

    Thank you for the recommendations. Both of those projectors sound very nice. Why don't projectors support Dolby Vision? Is this something that will be coming soon? It pains me to think about not being able to extract the maximum amount of information off my discs.

    In the market for a 4k projector

    Hi! I'm setting up a proper Home Theater room and looking to replace my current HD projector and go 4k. In a perfect world, I'd get something that supported all of the HDR formats, but I don't think such a thing exists. I don't even see a lot that support Dolby Vision. My budget is...
