Default Re: Criterion Collection uses PS3 as reference Blu-ray player

No problem, we just have a difference of opinion. I was fully aware of the reviews, did a ton of research before pulling the trigger. The unit was set-up properly. I spent a good deal of time on my own with it (which may be worth a whole lotta nothing), and then a professional calibrator came over and spent some time with it. From what I understand, the biggest difference can be seen on with a front projector and a large screen (e.g., 100" and greater). If you're getting a benefit commensurate with the cost of the unit, more power to you. BTW, I hope you didn't pay $3,500 for the DVDO.

Happy viewing.
