Re: 4K Movie Discussion

for me its about the practicality of 4k, I sit 18ft back from my 50" plasma in the living room and cant see any benefit to upgrading it and my theater system will need a new receiver, 4k player and a new 4k projector and Im not ready to fork out the kind of cash that will be required at this time. Its still too early in the game for me.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

I'm starting to see this all over the place. It's going to take a lot to get Plasma/Oppo users to upgrade. Most guys that care (too much) about Video quality or are TV calibrators will recommend "4K" LCD TV's to customers but never ask them what TV they have at home. Most of the time it will be a Plasma. Plus, I know my next player will be an Oppo so no UHD player for me until Oppo makes one (couple years out). I also plan to get a used Oppo 103/105 to replace my DVD-audio/SACD player that I have had for years.
So you think there are more plasmas out there than LCD/LED displays? I'd say it's the other way around and not even close. As far as waiting for Oppo to release a 4K player I'm right there with you. I just need to decide between that and the PS4K.

AVR, player, and projector would be a tough pill to swallow.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion

the only upgrade that may happen in a year will be a new receiver. My 805 is still going strong but Atmos is calling me.

Hahaha, THAT'S exactly how it starts Tony! You know how this game works. My AVR fizzled out and here I am. That's the path that lead me here. When they started putting the Atmos tracks on the 4K discs I figured might as well. That was a pretty savvy move because I know I'm not the only one out there that fell for it.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion

LOL, we just bought a new 2015 Buick Enclave so my disposable income took a big hit so not much "upgrade" cash available.

I understand just pointing out that's how it all begins.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion

The saving grace here is that I have enough external amplification that I wont need to buy a receiver that has a strong amp section like the 805 has. It will just have to have pre outs.
Ive got 3, 2 channel amps at my disposal now.

That's a nice luxury to have and only increases the options when you do start shopping.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion


Fine Pioneer plasma aside, I’m with Tony – it’s too early in the game for me. I’m hoping my Pioneer holds out long enough for OLED to become plentiful and reasonably priced. And for the hardware manufacturers to get all the HDMI issues ironed out – I’m still in “component video land.”

Regards,
Wayne
