You know the drill... Prices will be high and then rapidly fall. So waiting probably isn't a bad idea.

I think your Blu-Rays will continue to look and sound incredible on 4K gear. The definition is already excellent and future gear will have chips to upconvert and fill in the gaps. The good news is that your BD collection looks killer on 1080p projector, so no rush there!
Agreed. 1080p looks nice and sharp already...and I'm in no rush. Upscaling of BDs will look better, especially when it comes to projecters. Of course, I have to see an actual 4k pj demo and then I'll see if it's mind blowing enough where I can't wait...doubtful.

I don't know about "mind blowing" but it's noticeable. I can see the difference and it's what I'd go with if upgrading the video side of things.

I am quite happy with 1080p but always on the lookout for something better. I will sit back a few years just to see what unfolds.

I agree 100%. So far, this transition to 4K is looking pretty good. Although, the hiccup in gear alignment is a bit of a pain. Not sure how you're feeling, but this rollout is looking like a multi-year process to me.

Give it a couple years. The UHD/4K gear (and content) as well as 3D/immersive audio gear (and content) should be readily available and less expensive. By then we'll have another round of new tech and media formats to lust after

Wow, I get busy for a while and get behind on my HT reading and I miss a whole new format! Looks like I have some reading to do. For some reason I'm a little apprehensive about this one, but maybe I'm just getting old (and cheap!)
