Suspiria is a top 5 all time favourite, so I'm willing to spend a considerable of money on this.
Yeah, I already dropped $120.00 into the German 10 disc set-hoping it has the Synapse version in UHD. Guess I'll drop another $75.00.....

I'll wait until some Japanese tech sites make posts about it. Maybe then they'll go into detail about it.
You are right, and I have edited my post. I had assumed that TLE did an HDR grade, and as i had no desire to own the previous UHD Blu-ray editions, I believed only the Italian release lacked HDR.

As the Happinet UHD Blu-ray will probably be derived from the TLE 4K master, this complicates things a bit. However, one thing I will say is that I would wonder why Happinet would not specify their release would be SDR, when HDR (in one form or another) is virtually standard on UHD Blu-ray at this point. I would also wonder what the point of a UHD Blu-ray without HDR would be at this point in 2019, when a 4K remastered Blu-ray would likely be seen as sufficient for SDR material.

It certainly seems that HDR is no longer specifically advertised or mentioned on the latest releases in Japan, however. There are exceptions, but for example, I had to go find user reviews to learn that Pony Canyon's recent UHD Blu-ray release of Code Blue: The Movie has HDR, because HDR was not mentioned in any press release or news article, except as it relates to the UHD Blu-ray format. Also, I'm not sure there's been any Japanese domestic UHD Blu-ray released without HDR other than GAGA's The Phantom of the Opera, which was a very early release for the domestic Japanese market.

Have you read Torsten's comments on hdr and suspiria?

I wonder if it's possible to take TLEs work and add an hdr grade and legally release it?

There have been quite a few uhd sdr discs released in the last few years, and it will continue. Le Chat Qui Fume's forthcoming Blood Rose, for example.

Hope they do get a UHD for there version.
I wonder what it would take for them to enter the UHD market, starting with Suspiria? I can only speak for myself but I would easily be willing to pay double the amount of what the SE Blu-ray cost (the same goes for Demons). Especially if that will encourage them to release more movies on UHD after that...

the only edition of the classic 1977 film that should be on 4K UHD is the Synapse transfer

wake me when that happens

Do we know what the English 6.1 on this is supposed to be? I assume basically just kinda one of the regular 5.1 tracks in 6.1?

The much-derided (with good reason) Anchor Bay/Blue Underground remix was 6.1, so I assume it's that.
