  1. New Pre-Pro, or Blu-ray player? Or both?

    AV Home Theater
    I have a reference level bluray player, the DMP-UB900. But it does not do the latest in audio processing. My Integra DHC-80.3 is great, but is a 2012 vintage. To get the latest in HDR, Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, HDR-10, etc., can I get by with upgrading just one of these? Or to get the entire...

  5. Japan, Europe ready to deliver Blu-ray 3D discs

    Testing
    The U.S. may have been first with a Blu-ray 3D capable authoring facility, but Europe and Asia are on the case, with Imagion AG delivering the EU's first 3D disc (ironically, if we're not Alanis Morrisette-ing the meaning, Grand Canyon Adventure) and Panasonic replicating its US facility in...

    Testing
    The world no longer has to wait, two of Toshiba's second generation Blu-ray players are now on sale. The BDX2500 and BDX2700 are differentiated by the former's lack of integrated WiFi and a few external design cues, but both are packing VUDU, Netflix and Blockbuster On Demand for those who...

  9. Poll: Do you think Avatar will ship on Blu-ray 3D this year?

    Testing
    Fox's flat denial appeared to squelch the possibility of a 2010 release of Avatar on Blu-ray 3D disc, but HollywoodinHiDef is suggesting Panasonic has secured an exclusive and will pack it in with HDTVs and Blu-ray players in November. Of course, that matches the original information mentioned...

  12. The Spy Next Door - Blu-ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio :3stars: This is where I would love to say that the DTS-HD-MA really shined however, the sound design for the movie doesn’t lend itself to being anything spectacular. There isn’t really any gunplay, explosions, natural disasters or any other surround encompassing/LFE friendly sound so it...

    Testing
    For tightfisted HD fans, Woot.com has a treat. Just a few minutes ago it posted two daily deals on Blu-ray, with the Magnavox NB500 player that we thought was a value at $128 two years ago on sale as a refurb for $59.99, and four "HD Over:" scenic Blu-ray discs for $9.99, plus $5 shipping on...

  15. 24P and 1080P the same? Bluray Playback

    Blu-ray | DVD | Disc Media Players
    Ok, When I was playing a BluRay, "The Terminator", all I saw on the Time-Warner HD DVR front panel, the format was set to 1080i, (there is no 1080p setting) and on the Sony BluRay player, the 24P was displayed, and I waited until the main movie started to see if I could see somehow, somewhere...
  16. War Of The Worlds - Blu-ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio :5stars: This is one of the movies that most of us have all been waiting for since Bluray hit the market. So how does the 5.1 DTS-HD-MA sound? ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! From the moment the movie starts and our narrator (Morgan Freeman) begins speaking, I knew that this was going to be a...
  17. Repo Men Blu-ray disc gets the premium treatment

    Testing
    With a 22% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and no Emilio Estevez we're not sure Repo Men deserves a top of the line Blu-ray release, but it appears to be geting one. Universal's stuffed the disc full of of extras, including pocket BLU functionality, letting uses control the action from their...
  18. Saving Private Ryan Blu-ray discs recalled due to audio glitch

    Testing
    So nice, they'll have to release it twice. Apparently a problem with the audio synchronization in at least one of the chapters of Saving Private Ryan slipped past Technicolor and Paramount, causing the whole lot to be recalled. If you own it, you've got a bad disc, so check the press release...
  19. Psycho gets 5.1 surround for the first time on Blu-ray

    Testing
    Even if you've seen Albert Hitchcock's Psycho before (and seriously, you should have) the Blu-ray edition arriving for its 50th Anniversary October 19 has a new trick up its sleeve in the form of a remastered 5.1 surround sound audio track. The original mono soundtrack is included for...
  20. Tooth Fairy - Blu-ray Review

    Official DVD and Blu-ray Reviews
    Audio :2.5stars: As with the video, the audio is very lacking in across the board. The 5.1 DTS-HD-MA is less than what we have come to expect by today’s high definition standards. Surround activity is limited and feels like an afterthought when it is implemented. LFE is basically non-existent...
