View Full Version : deep color

One of the reason I wanted to upgrade my AVR was to see if there was a significant bonus to have full support for "deep color" Most BDP's made within the last 5-6 years tout this feature. But like I was, my AVR did not support it as my AVR only supported HDMI 1.2. HDMI 1.3 is the starting point of deep color support.

I have not had any issues with the past PQ of my system, but mentally felt I could be missing something. I wonder if that was the reason in the early days of HDMI that it was recommended to connect from the BDP directly to the display? Most AVR's made after 2010 do support this extra feature "HDMI 1.3", but not much is said on the benefits or if there is any real difference. Now I say on my system the colors do look more rich, but that could be in the process of the Blu ray itself. Movies with computer generated content always look better concerning color depth. One reason why I never use animation as a test/reference disk.

All you smart guys chime in!
