I guess I'll take the liberty and say that you've sort of already talked about this when commenting on the X500 vs RS46, in that, you didn't particularly like how the DI works now that brightness fluctuations stick out more in your totally blacked out room. You've also said you don't find that the DI gives a subjectively better image with most content (only with extremely dark content). So that leaves native vs native between the two. Can you see the difference in native contrast when we're already in the high twenty-thousands to one (full brightness difference) in real world scenarios? If you don't feel the DI helps then I don't see how such an insignificant difference, by comparison to what the DI brings to the table, in native contrast would make the 6710's image better. The lens is the same between the two so there shouldn't be a difference in subjective sharpness and I would imagine the 6710 to be just about as bright as the RS46 due to the the second fixed iris in front of the lamp on the 6710. I don't mean to take such a "the more expensive JVCs are mostly a waste of money" attitude but I think JVC really shot themselves in the foot due to how close the bottom end unit each year for the past 3-4 years has performed by comparison.

There is always the fact that as design become more and more perfected it leaves less room for improvement.
