(December 13, 2023) It's back! On the latest episode of Bass Hunters brought to you by Kaleidescape, Sutherland AV Marketing, and Ascendo, we harness the power of Kaleidescape's library to evaluate the smash-hit release of Oppenheimer in true 4K HDR. What we find is a dynamic bass expose that extends far beyond the moment the first atomic bomb is tested.

To read Michael Scott's official review Oppenheimer 4K on disc, go to: https://www.avnirvana.com/threads/oppenheimer-4k-blu-ray-review.12832/

If you'd like to support AV NIRVANA by purchasing a copy of Oppenheimer to experience its LFE in your own home, use the following links. We may receive a small commission from each sale, so thank you for supporting the forum!

Awesome... now I really can't wait to see this and how the MK3 with DLART handles the bass.

Can't wait to hear how well the Ascendo integrates with the SVS subs, if even needed.

@Todd Anderson I was able to watch it Saturday. I enjoyed it, really great story and plan to watch it again as I do with all Nolan films. Hahaha Some great bass moments as you pointed out in your video. My favorite scene was the testing with that moment of silence after detonation. Great cinematography throughout the film, In my opinion it's not the ultimate surround sound film given lack of Atmos however great track overall as far as the dialog and use of background music/ audio throughout as the film builds up.

One bit of advice to others on audio playback for this one, make sure you are playing back in DTS-HD or Dolby and not a virtual format like DTS Virtual-X. It's not your friend here, stick with the basics and enjoy!

I started watching this Saturday night and had to stop about 20 minutes in, as it was violently shaking the entire house according to my wife (she sent me a text). To save face with her, I told her I'd watch it one day this week while she is not here at the house. The bass is absolutely incredible. This has to be the new demo if you want to show off your subs. These six JTR 2400 Caps were pounding like nobody's business. I might have had the volume a little too loud to start with and I thought the house was going to crumble. Gives true meaning our house shaken down emoticon. :hsd:

I just watched this again after seeing your mention of just playing in DTS-HD. That’s great advice.

Hopefully its success encourages more like it. We need a bit of a creative revival to pull Hollywood out of its current trajectory

I agree with you Todd. It’s nice to see some new original content as opposed to remakes, and sequels.
