at this low number its a big differnce.
My calibrator measured much higher ANSI on my E-shifted RS55. Closer to that of the RS20's 300 ANSI number.
Further, I would strenuously disagree that an E-shifted JVC looks flatter than one without. Before I got rid of my RS20 (non-Eshift) I did extensive comparisons and the Eshifted
RS55 looked absolutely more dimensional and gave the subjective impression of even HIGHER ANSI/MFT. Especially when the MPC settings are employed - only available when the image
is E-shifted, the RS20 could not competed with the "pop" and depth of the RS55.
I also extensively compared the E-shift on and off and it never looked flatter with E-shift on. In fact, the image tended to look more solid and believable with E-shift on. Use of the MPC controls on the E-shifted image
brought the perception of image clarity and image contrast/depth even higher...very obviously more dimensional looking than the non-Eshifted version, or my old RS20.
So, my experience comparing E-shfted images vs non Eshifted JVC images does not comport with your statement. If there is a single attribute that has kept my jaw on the floor in moving to my RS55 from my RS20 it's the depth of the E-shifted image!
