So far I’ve been really impressed with my PPM, worth the wait!
I have a Panasonic amp running a Bowers & Wilkins surround sound system; up until now we’ve just been using this for audio. My wife didn’t want a permanent projector as it’s a family room so the PPM is a great compromise for us.
I’ve just bought an Apple TV 4K and am running that through the amp via HDMI and then HDMI to the PPM. The latest version of Apple TV is great, I have a first generation of this in my living room, but there’s no App Store on it. The 4K version allows you to download loads of streaming apps. Dependent on the film, and app, this can also output Dolby Atmos which sounds great.
I did have one question, and I’m not particularly technical! I was having a play with the Apple TV settings, the default output is 1080P SDR (which is crisp and bright) but there is an option for 1080P HDR (which seems worse in quality); I naively assumed that HDR would be better, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, anyone know why?
I think I might invest in a better tripod, the standard one seems a little flimsy, but other than that I think it’s great and for my situation (not wanting a fixed projector) perfect for occasional cinema nights!
It’s really nice to be using this community forum for what it’s intended, instead of being embroiled in the shipping delays (which I was also reading on an almost daily basis!).
