I have been happy with my Samsung SP-A800B projecting on a 120" wide 2.35 AT screen for several years now. The last projector prior to the Samsung was a Sony G70 crt calibrated by the best in the business, Ken Whitcomb.
I am considering purchasing a b-stock JVC RS40 from AVS to replace the Samsung in the main theater and moving the SP-A800B to the 'barn theater' which has a 144" wide 16:9 AT screen. AVS discouraged me from purchasing the RS40 for the 12' wide screen but sometimes I miss the deep blacks that the crt produced, and if it produces a nicer picture than the SP-A800B I would be game for that.
I know they are two different techs/looks. Just wondered if anyone else has gone this route and what their advice may be. I haven't been a huge fan of 3D in the past but Spiderman at the IMAX looked pretty cool last week.
What do you guys think?
