OK but why not integrate your two killer Sansui speakers?

I do feel that for a decent 4K BD HT it's going to cost more than a 4K Digital.For 5K you can get a real good 4K UHD Display and Sound System.
Not sure what you mean with that since it does not make any sense. are you saying

1) if we use my example a 10k$ projector system or your 5k$ TV system they will cost less igf used with digital instead of UHD BD?

2) That UHD BD will only work with a 10k$ projector based system and digital a 5k$ TV system

3) digital 4k looks and sounds so bad that you would only want to watch it on cheap 5k$ system built around a small TV so that it mitigates the quality issues while while that is too small and UHD BD looks and sounds so good that you would feel it requires a large projector and fancy audio system to take full advantage of it?

Quote:
Let alone the cost of the 4K Discs that will keep going up.
they are more expensive then 1080p disks?do you mean inflation? or something other insane reason? Because I know your experience not buying a UHD BD player or movies counts more but in my experience the prices have not been going up if anything they are going down (easier to find sales). On the other hand every few months Netflix here in Canada keeps on increasing the price.

Well, according to the person who never buys 4K discs, or any discs at all, they are going up steadily. Those of us that actually buy them somehow never noticed.

Thankfully, streaming services and internet service providers NEVER raise their prices.

LOL! My Netflix in Canada is now $17 from the original $12, internet from $80 to $120. Prime went up by a lot too. All the while the movie selections of Netflix and Prime in Canada gets suckier.

The only 4Kís that seem to be increasing in price are store exclusives and thatís more to limited units release. Everything else you just have to be a smart shopper and find the deals. Vilya proves theyíre out there with the amount of physical purchases he makes

You guys are right, I don't buy Discs anymore because the price for new releases don't come down like they use to. Like Avengers: Endgame and Shazam 4K can go up to $80, but they start around $30.

https://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Aveng...lu-ray/241718/

I use to buy the Disc for the Digital Copy, but it's not worth it anymore.

I bought my Endgame for about US$25. I bought Shazam for about US$15. I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Do you just wholesale make this sh*t up? Shazam! 4K was just $19.99 on sale a couple of days ago and Avengers Endgame 4K was $29.96 on release day, August 13th. Neither are anywhere near $80 even when combined.

As I have told you before, STOP lecturing those of us that actually buy discs about what they cost; you just make a complete fool out of yourself every time that you do so. Talk about the ever increasing costs of streaming and internet service instead; a topic that you always turn a blind eye towards.

That poor poster obviously has NO shopping skills. He just doesn't get that some collectors will pay big dollars for certain titles, packaged in a certain way and only available from certain outlets.

I remember paying big bucks for a few LaserDisc titles that were released in CAV. It was so neat to play frame by frame, slow-mo, etc. and do it forwards or backwards.

Many of todays folks would faint if a title was $113 ($50, 1987 dolars).

The thing is that you forgot to mention alchav21 that the link for the release you mentioned has a small lenticular book about the MCU series included with the UHD of the movie which in theory raises the price of it even more in comparison to the other 4K copies on sale without the book. It's a good point when Vilya raised that point when he says you or other people who are into the movie can buy a copy of it for up to $30.

There is also a Target logo displayed in the top left hand corner of that 4K slipcover which means that if you live in places like America or probably in Canada & you want to buy that 4K copy of Avengers Endgame; it is specifically offered as a Target exclusive. Its generally more expensive to buy an in-store UHD Blu-ray release when it's offered as an in-store exclusive to any of their customers.

I see this happen when I frequent the HMV website all the time when they offer HMV Exclusive UHD/1080p Blu-rays released for sale.

This really is nothing new to deter people who purchase physical media on a regular basis. There are so many different versions of disc titles available for sale to movie fans like us & the general public to buy which either include extra things with the disc titles or without them. It is up to ourselves to know what we want to buy with our own money because it is primarily our own choice to make it.

Yep, Vilya and sapiendut are correct on prices. I could have bought Shazam for next to nothing last week if I didnít want a digibook to match my other DCEU. Same with the Target exclusive Avengers Endgame. So not sure where you are getting your prices? Do yourself a favor and donít use this site as a basis for pricing. They are strictly Amazon here. Which is why I have more than a few retailer apps on my iPhone to insure I get the best price.

Buying an in-store exclusive, such as the Target one that alchav linked to, from a third party seller on Amazon is going to be ridiculously expensive. If someone wanted that Target exclusive, they would buy it from Target, not Amazon.

Alchav posts garbage like this in an attempt to make discs look like they are very expensive. The Target 4K exclusive costs $34.99, not $80:

https://www.target.com/p/avengers-en...l/-/A-54622698

The current $80.40 Target exclusive edition being offered on Amazon is from a third party seller by the name of "Bat Country Books." His famous lack of reading comprehension strikes again or he is deliberately being a troll by posting prices that he knows are NOT representative of the norm.

If I buy this title, as of now it would be purchased at Best Buy for 29.95. A cool savings of $50.45 compared to the place in question.

You're so shrewd; guess you gotta be when you're shopping for $18,000 projectors.

With the savings, you can then import the 3D edition from Amazon.uk and still have about $30 leftover. You could also buy Shazam! 3D while you're at it and still have about $10 remaining.

Yep, paid $34.99 + tax -Target red card discount for our Endgame exclusive. Which probably brought it down to $35ish? Well worth it for me. As are most of my physical purchases. It is one of the reasons why I like to use streaming to decide if something is a buy or pass.

Settle down guys don't get all excited, I did say that Endgame could be bought for $30. Now the Digital Version for the UHD 4K at FN or Vudu cost $25, but you can find MA Codes for $8. With UV out of the picture MA are the Codes, and you can shop for some real good prices. I just think that Disc prices will keep going up, while Digital will be priced better.

Where do you think those MA codes come from? They come from physical combo packs. The existence of combo packs is what keeps everything's prices down. The Blu-ray disc, 4K disc, and digital copy code are all pretty easy to find for under $10 each because people buy the combos and split them up.

If physical media were to die (as you keep predicting) then digital prices would skyrocket because everything would have to be bought directly from the studios, they'd have full control over all prices. If you think Disney would ever sell their digital movies for $8 each near launch you're crazy.
