Thanks gents. I will regard this podcast as my " pre-read " as I have place at next week's event at Abbey Road Studios.

Thanks for a great podcast guys. Thanks Phil Hinton, also for answering my question re the OLED+936 in comparison to the Sony A90J and Panasonic JZ2000!
Looking forward to the outcomes from the Phillips event on 16th!

Also... re Coppola's 'THE OUTSIDERS'... I agree with Steve Withers review... a great GREAT set. Is there a more beautiful actress than Diane Lane in 'The Outsiders'... gorgeous then and gorgeous now. :)

Thanks gents. I've found these dedicated home cinema guides remarkably useful. I have a hybrid media room with a projector and TV (I can literally sense Steve shuddering). However - the TV is going! I now have flexibility to turn this into a dedicated room. But before I begin to modify / upgrade equipment, I'm going to sort out the room first. I was thinking black paint but an contemplating light absorbing fabric. Maybe a little audio treatment (but I need to research this first).

Regarding the Disney+ IMAX - I guess you guys will be glad to hear that Disney offers an option so owners of scope screens rejoice!
