guys, I remember you saying a while back you'd be producing more videos, this doesnt seem to be happening and I cant help feeling this is reflected in your relatively low you tube subscriptions, are you going to step this up at all, maybe get someone in just to do videos for youtube?

Just into the section of actors lost - and then reading Doris Day has sadly died - all be it at age 97 :)

Yes, this is happening, but it requires a lot of work behind the scenes to get up and running. I have around 10 review videos all in various stages of production as we speak and almost at the stage where the workflow means there will be a steady stream of videos appearing. It's also a team of one.

spot on with Wandering earth, sets and effects were top notch, just let down with editing and acting. A decent 6.5/10 scifi

They're worth waiting for, don't worry.

If I literally had any skills to offer, I would....

@Steve Withers - "Silence Mode" on the BenQ projectors just switches of the pixel shift, so the trade-off is that you only get a 1080p image.

From the W2700 manual:

"Minimizes the acoustic noise. It is suitable for the need of watching movies that requires an ultra-quiet environment so that you won't be disturbed by the noise of the projector. When this mode is used, the following menu functions will be automatically changed to the designated settings and grayed out. • Off: To turn on XPR (The display resolution will be 3840 x 2160.) • On: To turn off XPR (The display resolution will be 1920 x 1080.)"

You seem to be forgetting that in post #5 Mr Hinton had said:

Considering that we are getting steady stream of AV and film reviews on this site with no effort on our part (not to mention absolutely FREE), I think that we should be damned grateful. I'm sure that Mr Hinton will do the Samsung review when he can. Give the man a break!

I had to check out the new Apple app and airplay, which appeared just as I was finishing the video review, to see if it is worth talking about or if it causes any issues. The review will be up tomorrow now.

Thanks, that was ultimately the conclusion I came to, although it would have been quicker and easier if I'd just looked in the manual!

@Ed Selley after god knows how many years you have saved my sanity.
I had seen the Jag pootling along Skimpot Road in Luton years ago, but could I find anyone else that had seen it , nope !

Although the Nuraphone headphone is not quite for me due to unusual base effect, i do compliment them for challenging traditional design.

Maybe next iteration will be more widely accepted.

The so called custom profiles are based on preset that best fits, so it is not truly custom. That technology is still in infancy. Not developed by Nuraphone but another Company/s who supply it to many headphone manufacturers = Sony, Beyerdynamic, etc.

I tried it out on a £600 Beyerdynamic Bluetooth headphone at Canjam London and it was not a good experience. Sounded better turned off.
