    And you can get an awesome THX certified surround system to go with your $18,000 THX-certified projector.

    That is to ask: does this certification mean anything at all to a discerning buyer?

    Speaking only for myself, THX certification plays no factor into my purchasing choices circa 2019. They made themselves irrelevant a long time ago.

    Does THX certification actually even mean anything any more, other than as a marketing tool?

    I really believe if you put 10 people in a THX theatre auditorium and ran a 10 minute demo snipe then put the same 10 people in a well tuned/EQ'ed (non THX) auditorium running Dolby SRD or DTS and played the same 10 minute snipe, 9,9 of the 10 people could NOT tell the difference. THX is of course nice but it's also a lot of hype. Just buy good amps, good speakers, EQ the room and sit back and enjoy. This of course is just my opinion.

    Save the date, Saturday, March 23, 2019 Value Electronics is partnering with JVC and Panasonic to demonstrate the next generation of moving images advancements in home cinema projection.

    We'll be showcasing JVC's NX7 and NX9 paired with Panasonic UB9000 BD player with the latest exclusive updates from each company, that will deliver image quality never seen before, (that is outside of what colorists and graders in Hollywood Studio Mastering Suites see when they work with the original master files).

    As we get closer to the event date I'll be able to announce more information on this unique partnership.
