Discuss High Definition Technology & Releases
I just had a brief scary experience. I just put a CD on and the sound was all weird and tinny, I was thinking, 'great, knew it was too good to be true, it's fucked already', took the CD out and put another one in and it was the same. So I turned it off and reinserted the leads and then turned it back on again, and now it's fine. Phew.bradavon wrote:Better DACs more likely.
Do you know what's interesting? That was the only time that I had turned my receiver on after starting a CD in the player, so it may well have been to do with the DACs you mentioned. But if the receiver's already on beforehand, it sounds fooking awesome
Nope absolutely nothing to do with my receiver needing to warm up, as I say it was doing the tinny sound even when I changed the CD, and this has never happened before, it's got to be to do with this Limit player. Still, I think it was simply due to my starting the CD before turning the receiver on (which I never do usually).
The original PS3 supported SACD, which must mean it was 192Khz/24-Bit. I don't know about existing ones, either the same or 96KHz/24-bit. I'm not aware of any BDs that go higher than 96KHz/24-bit. Maybe stereo tracks.
Turns out it's to do with a firmware update:

I've noticed that this player oversharpens the image, just been comparing discs on this and my PS3 and my suspicions were correct. By turning my TV's sharpness down to its minimum of -50 it's improved the matter slightly, but ringing still persists unfortunately.
I don't think that code actually makes it permanent from what people have said. Someone theorised that it makes it region free until you put in a disc, and then whatever region that disc is, the player becomes said region from then on.
