Is the quality really better though?

The comparisons to Iíve seen say/show that itís more authentic to the 70s theatrical print, but not necessarily higher quality than the Despecialized Edition.

It might be a matter of taste. The 4k77 is taken almost completely from a single print, with the point of making it resemble as closely as possible the theatrical presentation. So there's film grain and softness, just like with film, as well as differences in color timing. Whereas the despecialized is taken from many sources with the goal of creating something as close as possible to what a home release would look like.

I really liked the look and feel of the 4k77.

Seems as though word on Jedi is that the new 4k83 version beats the despecialized hands down. Going to check that one out soon.

Last night I watched the Project D+80 Empire. Very nice. Though not as beautiful as the 4k77 Star Wars. But a 4k Empire is on the horizon...

Just saw that they're running Empire in theaters on 9/25.
Guess they haven't heard about the deadly virus??

downloading - this is way better than the de-specialized editions, which i've been happiest with so far.

quality looks INSANE

Yes. Through a circuitous route, I've acquired a blu-ray of it (and of Jedi (they're still working on Empire)), and it's just beautiful.
Actually puts one back in the '70s watching it, which is great. It's such a '70s movie, with such great '70s special effects, while at the same time being so different from anything else of its era.

The special editions are an incomprehensible muddle in comparison, especially in terms of look and feel.

Like buy on Discogs..?
Like selling on Discogs???

Things are changing and sellers are PISSED.
https://blog.discogs.com/en/shipping-policy-editor-changes/

The complexity of the new, required, selling policies are driving small sellers right off the platform.
Guess I'll have to go back to eBay. I fucking hate ebay.

Well, at least it's still a good tool for keeping track of your collection.  :|
