There are a number of other differences between the two products as well that I can't recall off hand, but they also meant I'm better off staying with my Pro. However, it's no bad thing having some competition in the market.
Opinions are quite useless, some hardcore testing and documentation would be golden. show of what it do, find the right test patterns for the purpose and show us with and without Envy.The Envy Pro is £7800 inc VAT.
The Envy Extreme is £13200 inc VAT.
There is an awful lot of incorrect conjecture on the US threads and many people that haven’t touched either device talking boldly about what they heard. An Envy is not the same as a MadVR. The algorithms are not exactly the same. The user experience is not remotely the same.
We will try to get the unit in some trusted hands over here who can give their opinion as they see fit.
Well... i have the NX9/RS3000 and Paladin DCR with the MadVR Envy and i can say it is amazing.
When i see the picture quality of the NX9 with FA stand alone and compare it to the NX9 and DCR that is a big step and then including the Envy makes it hudge.
Hdr become so much better and you must see it to believe it because i can't find words to explain that upgrade to be honest, the only word that comes to mind is 'hudge'.
Yes it's big , yes it's expensive but man what am i glad i bought that piece of kit and i also must add that it is very user friendly with a really good menu set up.
You can let it calibrate in 3d lut and set it in the 'permanent' menu and what ever you touch or change in the settings just to compare or trying to improve the picture it will always start up in the 'permanent' calibrated settings after it's boots up so you can't mess up or change things you didnt wanted to.
Very very happy with it, and as it is still in beta it can only being better in the future.
It is really plug and play as it automatic takes the right settings and calibration and you don't have to look at it if you don't want to, just put the disc in and press play and enjoy your movie.
