Hi all, I have just decided to do my first CIH scope.
A little history, I was running a marquee 9500L/C for that last 4 years and it was damaged during super storm Sandy; now that the insurance company has paid out on it I've decided to go with a digital and do 2.35 scope, which is the lions share of what I watch. Most movies are on Blu-Ray played by a Sony BDP-550 for now, I have used an Oppo in the past and a Lumagen too...was never happy with that combo on the CRT.
I will be getting the Runco LS-5 with the McKinley lens. The screen will be a Stewart 50" x 117.5" wide 2.35, white,1.3 gain screen.
My understanding is that Runco is/was using the Isco III, and may also be using Schneider? Either way ,is there anything to look for when specifying which lens I will be getting?
EDIT: Mea Culpa, The McKinley lens does not work on the LS-5 it uses the Cineglide only. See last post.
