This is what I don't get about hi res music. I can't tell the difference on a pretty good setup, so how are most people supposed to on the sort of stuff that most people have? No wonder the platforms seem to offer different mixes for some music so users feel they are getting something for the extra cost.Seems most people, who enjoy watching films, are happy to stream and, many probably don't care about the best image and sound quality, as long as it is acceptable, just as most people don't care about HiFi.
I fully understand that streaming 4k from Disney+ or Netflix
The Sony UBPX800M2 is £300:
What Hi-Fi 5* review:
Why would you need to spend any more on a UHD player?
Yeah I've not really look in them properly. I always buy Sony TVs and naturally a Sony player follows. Will have to look into it when I buy my new TV.Usability? From what I read some Sony players need you to manually switch on Dolby Atmos and/or Vision when playing such encoded discs. That would be a dealbreaker for me right away no matter how cheap. 300 quid is still quite a chunk, and I'd save up a bit more for one the the lower Panasonics.
That's the point though isn't it? If the quality is good enough then why pay extra? I've watched movies on Sky Q and have watched 4K movies on Sony Bravia Core, as well as having a small number of 4K Blu-Ray discs and I honestly can't tell the difference to any worthwhile degree.Seems most people, who enjoy watching films, are happy to stream and, many probably don't care about the best image and sound quality, as long as it is acceptable, just as most people don't care about HiFi.
