I haven't seen it, but I'd be willing to give it a try.
I remember making a derogatory comment about the movie Rogue a few months ago, which after the fact made me wondering how many things I buy that may be questioned. I know I commented on Unhinged where I preferred Falling Down more, but don’t think that was derogatory having remembered the Rogue incident.

[Show spoiler]Thanks Cevolution for your open attitude and the way you view the Future of Home Entertainment! I use to play a lot of tennis in my younger days, and right now the Australian Open is being played down there in your warm sunny climate.....What a Joy!
Most of us do use multiple formats: various legacy formats, DVD, Blu-ray, 3D blu-ray, 4K disc, EST, VOD, and SVOD. Very few of us use physical media or digital distribution exclusively. My digital collection is now comparable to yours; did you ever imagine that would happen?

Now . . . what would you like me to compare that to, staying in home entertainment as that is where the goal posts are fixed.
profits revenue is OK and it keeps the cashflow rolling, but losses mean money needs to be taken away from other divisions.

Alchav is a veteran of the U.S. military; he served in the Vietnam War. He is fully capable of standing up for himself.

No matter how often I have disagreed with him here at blu-ray.com, he will always have my respect for his service record alone.

Away from our passion for HT, I feel that way too. Alchav can be a wind up merchant, do doubt about it and some of his posts are just plain wrong but he is always amongst the first members to offer his best wishes if any of us are going through a bad time.

Me too. On both counts. Did you hear that Zack Snyder is also remastering Batman Vs Superman Ultimate Cut for an eventual release? I'm curious about that one, because I don't own the 4K disc of BvS ultimate cut.

Will be glad to post in terms of general use, do not have enough test equipment to do a definitive electrical test.

Here is hopping some of these preform extensive test on this unit: Stacey Spears, Kris Deering, Geoff D, Sledgehamma and the folks at Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity and Widescreen Review. Because this unit is intended for commercial use there may not be much interest.

Have that one but not watched in recent times. From my notes:
Quote:
Lots of handheld camera work. Gritty, dark picture. Very good sound track and LFE.
Will give it another spin soon.

Will add Justice League to my HBO Max list.

Building a new business takes time. And of course money - it's an investment in the future. The payoff isn't immediate. But once it comes, it's a tidal wave of profit, as long as the business plan is sound. And we do know that it is - no question.

Losses can be dealt with in two ways: "rob Peter to pay Paul" or borrow the money to cover the losses, knowing that it's short term only.

I just rent things digitally through Vudu or iTunes apps on my Roku now. If I really enjoy something to where I think I will watch it again more than a few times, I'll pick up the Blu-ray. I'm just starting to find less and less new content I really want to watch, much less watch again.

We may all have different opinions and interests and may even loathe each other in the thread but posts like this will bring us together. We are only human after all.

Intended for commercial use notwithstanding, I think many people will be happy to see a new 4K disc player at the mid tier price point of $599.99.

It can be directly ordered from Tascam with estimated delivery on March 12th.

Ditto. The 4:3 aspect ratio is odd to me though.

Same here. Was that initially for opening up the full IMAX image at the cinema?

You have to remember this Teac product is unsupportive of HDR10+ or DV. Its OK for projector that support HDR10 I assume.

specs


Its doesn't even say it supports HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 on anything.
