    NEWS: Executive Changes at Kaleidescape

    I spoke with Cheena at length about this almost two weeks ago, and had the opportunity to speak with both Tayloe and Norma last night. To echo Jim, this in no way indicates a negative for the company, but rather looking to put people in the right place to help the company succeed and move...

    Spartacus 4K HDR

    This new 55th Anniversary 4K HDR transfer looks amazing! Regardless of how many times you've watched this epic, you have never seen it looking like this, with a new 4K digital intermediate taken from a 6K scan of the original 35 mm Super 70 Technirama prints. And if you've never seen it -- as...

    Strato with 2020 D&M receiver?

    Yeah, I personally have an 8805 with 0 issues, but those are all last gen boards... Trying to determine if I just have a singleton bad 7015 OR if the whole line has some glitch...

    Strato with 2020 D&M receiver?

    I haven't tried the non-ARC (the primary Monitor) output; It does have a Monitor2 and a Zone2 (not sure Zone2 supports 4K HDR, but probably...) I could check that. I've tried different inputs on the Sony TV, including HDMI 1, 2, and 3(eARC).

    Strato with 2020 D&M receiver?

    Thanks for the suggest! On the 7015, the closest connection to the monitor outputs is HDMI 7 (8K IN). I've tried both it and HDMI 6 and get the same issues. I should have added earlier that I've traded numerous emails with Rusty and also sent K engineering multiple EDID logs and files and they...

    Strato with 2020 D&M receiver?

    Hi. I've got an install with a Strato connected to a new Marantz SR7015 and Sony 950H TV. Running through the Marantz I get flashing white screen periodically when watching 4K HDR content. Might not happen until 5-10 minutes into a movie, but then once it happens, it regularly happens every 10...

    Kaleidescape in a 2 Channel and/or Flat Panel Setup

    I have a Strato/M500 (CoStar) in my media room which has both a 65-inch Sony flat panel and JVC NX7 projector (day/night use) and then an M300 in my bedroom to a LG OLED. Having the option/ability to watch my Premiere content in the bedroom is great; we'll send the kids in there if we're having...

    I thought that maybe they knew it was going to be watched at home by a majority of people using TV and soundbar speakers and just "dumbed down" the mix for that lowest common denominator. I also wonder if the issue couldn't be AppleTV; I watched Taylor Swift's Reputation (Netflix) on ATV and it...

    Star Wars Movie Sale

    I watched Empire last night and....WOW! Picture and sound quality are both amazing! Stunning what they were able to do with this 40 year old title! It's like seeing it for the first time; except better, since my home theater is way better than the first theater I saw it in back in 1980! :-)

    US BR & 4K Releases for March & April 2020

    If you missed seeing the new Kristen Stewart underwater horror/thriller when it zipped in-and-out of theaters, it might not be on your radar. And even though it doesn't bring much new to the genre, it is 95-minutes of fun that will give your home theater a real workout! The movie features some...
