Re: Moving to 4K

Thanks for the link. Honestly I've been perfectly happy with most material I've played in the Samsung. My biggest gripe is the build quality as it looks and feels like a $50 player. If the A/V experience can be improved by a higher quality player I wouldn't know because I have nothing to judge it by. When these newer players start hitting the market and the reviews tout them as hands down better than the Samsung well that's when the itch will hit.

Re: Moving to 4K

I agree with your approach 1000%.

It's good to have all the information... I do believe the processors that the more expensive models have probably outperform... the question is: how does that translate into real world, real eye, experience. Right?

Re: Moving to 4K

Remember that a new technology can not survive without software (4K Blu Ray). Considering the fact that there are only about discs on the market right now, and the prices are about $30.00 +. Not much to get excited about. Once OPPO releases their 4K UHD player, it will be a game changer. Otherwise, your option is to just let your player try to upscale it the best it can. There will be no broadcast 4K for quite some time.

Re: Moving to 4K

For me its still to early to go 4K. I want a good 4K projector that is priced right at around $3000 before I will dive into it. Just like the early bluray and HDDVD players were pricy and full of glitches (less in the HDDVD ones) 4K still has some bugs to work out.

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

OPPO has officially announced its 4K player, today (actually happened about 40 min ago). I'm publishing a piece on it in about 20 min. Price is $549...both HDR10 and (eventually Dolby Vision) support. Great audio specs.

Really getting the itch on the Oppo. I'm just not sure I'll see or hear a difference from the Samsung I've already dropped $400 on. I've always wanted an Oppo in my setup though so I'll probably pull the trigger. You only live once right?
