    Like the first offering of the series, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets makes for a superior 4k home theatre experience.

    Like Sorcerer's Stone, it finds its roots finished as film, and not 2k data, which gives Warner Bros. a quality source for a data harvest.

    And it shows.

    Although similar to the first film in the series, I found HDR to be a tad heavy, everything else image wise is superb.

    Grain structure, image stability, color, and generally, black levels are superior.

    Audio is represented via DTS:X, which beautifully fills a room.

    A great deal of care has gone into bringing the Potter series to 4k, which overall is a rationale to once again (probably for the fifth time) gift your earlier representations of the film, and upgrade.


    Image - 4.5

    Audio - 5 (DTS:X)

    4k - 5

    Pass / Fail - Pass

    Upgrade from Blu-ray - Yes

    Highly Recommended

    Robert, what exactly do you mean by this? Too dark? Too bright?

    And, in SORCEROR'S STONE at least, blotchy.
