I have an JVC RS2 coming with refurb by JVC.

Got a good deal on this so was wondering if an external video processor would be a worthwhile addition.

Looking at
Lumagen radiance 3D ($1500)
DVDO iscan ($1200)

Also considering Chromapure software with "auto calibrate" and xrite i1 (Display 3 Pro) from Curt Palme ($700). Auto calibrate works with Lumagen or DVDO.

So Meter and software with:
Lumagen = $2200
DVDO = $1900

My room will be light controlled and will get a good quality screen.

Think there would be a 'big" difference with the processor and auto cal vs stand alone JVC (Maybe I get the meter and software and cal with JVC controls?)

My goal is best 2D pic possible.

Maybe reuse the processor in future with newer proj.

What do you think?

I have been very happy with my RS1 and Duo processor. I needed the video switching and it allows for 3D pass thru with my Acer H5360 used for 3D on the second Duo display output. VIP 3D Theatre used for 3D viewing on the Acer. The Lumagen can calibrate a 3D projector but the Duo can't. In your case no 3D so not needed.
