**I would love the higher CR of the present JVC's, but they are really not viable for a large screen, e.g., 12ft wide or so.
I'm guessing the next major change for Sony is LED light engine, wider color gamut, HDR...maybe they have a next gen SXRD panel coming as well that achieves higher contrast, but I'm continually floored by the 1100 to this day.

Listening: Constantinople from "Modern Cool" by Patricia Barber (Rating 8/10) • Watching: "Captain America: The First Avenger" (Blu Ray ISO) (Rating 9/10)

I agree and love my 1100! However there are times that I miss the ueber contrast of a JVC.

A led light engine, or a phosphor laser light source would be nice, but if they don't produce any better performance than the present lamp source, I can't get excited.

Great game Do you really mean LED with 3 chip LCOS each fed by a bank of Red, Green and Blues respectively or do you mean a laser pumped phosphor wheel?
