Anybody seen if these are anywhere in NZ I cannot see anything here and would be interested in one, they carry a pretty hefty price though. Since I have all the lighting already in place for the TV and throughout the house could be worth getting

There's an official Windows app does something similar if you use a Windows as a player. Lightning is great. Similar for Android I believe.

I’m also looking for one of these, was reading it received a fairly big update yesterday and now includes support for Dolby Vision which was missing when it launched.

I think its only 60hz so not made for NZ/AU market but I think if you are using a streaming box (Apple TV) and a modern TV you can just run at 60hz anyway. I'm looking to get one from the US but Amazon is sold out so might have to do some more digging.

 

The latest update has added Dolby Vision, HDR10+ and voice controls which is a pretty substantial update for sure and makes it a much better, although still expensive, proposition.

I don't use windows, I do have a hue lighting app on my macbook that you can airplay to my apple 4k box but would be nice to have a dedicated box for it. I would say you would be looking around a good $600 + for one.
