I took your advice, though, and I ordered Come And See and 13 other titles including the Bruce Lee box set.

I will likely place a second order before its over.
WB Shop have announced their 4 for $44 sale. Between Criterion and WB, it is going to be a rough month on my wallet as well.

Agreed. I think this round will go to WAC as $11 per disc is hard to pass up. We are in the middle of purchasing a new house so I can't go too crazy with my spending.

All 73 episodes have Atmos sound tracks so that gives you less than four months to get setup for immersive sound. You need to get cracking.

Got a notification today from Dune saying their HD Pro 4K II is shipping. First device that I know of that uses Realtek RTD1619. Hope to see other devices, like the Zappiti players, using the 1619 in the near future.

2nd what Vilya said!

What are your thoughts on using the up firing KEF Q50a's for immersive audio? I have never auditioned this type of immersive audio so have no reference. My 4 Atmos speakers* are mounted in a suspended ceiling.

Believe it or not, I'm still stuck in the 19th century with my seemingly endless viewings of American history documentaries; none of them have Atmos audio.

You will be stuck in a daze once you finish Twin Peaks. It really is something, although very very different to the last two series. The soundtrack is great imo.

Good luck with the new home. Hopefully you have a great space to set up your system.

Nothing has changed except for a temporary, or limited, access to commercial theaters. I believe Octagon put it best in another thread: someone will put seats in a front of a screen. If existing theaters go bankrupt, someone will take their place as soon as it is profitable to do so. Studios make tons of money on their theatrical exhibitions and they are not going to just give that up.

In time, people will forget about this pandemic; hell, too many are paying it no mind now. People will resume doing all that they enjoy, including concerts, cinemas, and monster truck rallies.

In the meantime, I am going to continue to make the best of it. I have thousands of discs to watch as well as streaming access. I am as entertained now as I was before the Great Plague of 2020.

Relax and enjoy the now; there's much fun to still be had.
I think streaming and physical can co-exist. There's no need for one to cancel the other out. It's a stupid debate and always will be.

Don't really have a system yet but I will finally have my own man cave room. Not very big but it will allow me to start crafting a system. I really want to go with a 4K projector but my budget may limit me to a 75" TV instead. We shall see!

They do co-exist and IMHO they will continue to do so.

For most of us that do both we have a problem when posters say streaming quality = disc quality. Objective and subjective data says otherwise.

For anyone with UHD Netflix, watched episode 1 of a new series Warrior Nun in UHD with Atmos sound. The data rate was 11.44 Mbps, so I checked the Netflix servers speed and it was 220 Mbps via a Nvidia Shield Pro. It has been several weeks since I used Netflix and the last check of UHD content 15.1 Mbps.
