As a friend, I seriously doubt there will ever be a projector that you would be happy owning for the long haul. Projectors are like the getting married. With a marriage, the odds are high that unhappiness will arise with a 50 percent chance of a divorce happening.


Being married to AV science projector forums pretty much guarantees that one after just a few years (in your case a month or so) will become unhappy. At least you don't get hitched to any projector. you just say it was nice, you really do some things really well, but I want something different. I know my next one will do some things better that you do better, but not everything and perhaps many things not as well. But I will go on searching for perfection. I know it doesn't exist but getting fresh meat every month or so is so much fun.

It would appear that the Sony DIs make based on the content of the frame certain delta adjustments to the gamma curve you select or create. The deltas are the same regardless of what you select as the base gamma curve. So the base curve could affect whether the high end will clip or not depending on your curve at the high end. Now what is the difference between auto limited or full. it has been reported that the iris closes down to the same extent at the dark end. What does it do for the high end. does it open up the same or more? I think it opens up more. What happens to the deltas? Do they remain the same at all points or do the high end deltas increase. Is more engine boost applied by lowering the high end gamma?

Thanks. I new not to calibrate whilst Auto iris is on. I didn't realise there was no way to set the Auto iris fl.

There's definitely some truth in this. The good thing is that there are only so many projectors out there and I've already seen 99% of the ones I wanted to see. The only one I'm waiting to see is JVCs rebuttal to Sony's 4K projectors. Hopefully they will show it off at CEDIA 2015.

the projector journey is not complete until after you've bought and sold the wolf cinema DCX-500i in the classified section.

it's only 30k, has no warranty, no 3D capability, and has an extremely expensive lamp. I'll be waiting for the report.
