Thanks for the review, I'll stick with the iTunes 4K/Dolby Vision digital I purchased over two years ago.
It was shot 2K. So iTunes is also an upconvert - except with streaming you have an anemic 20 mbps bit rate vs. 100 mbps on disc.
With 10 bit Dolby Vision - those missing 60 bits matter....A LOT.
Physical Disc is the only way to go here.

Not for me, I'm happy enough with the 4K digital.

You might as well be watching 1080p with those bit rates.
but, to each their own.:)
That's what you say, but I've compared similar 4K digitals against their 4K discs and I find it very difficult to distinguish any differences on my LG OLED panels. Just stick to what makes you happy and I'll do the same thing.
