In the Podcast there is also some discussion about just how good projectors are now and I totally agree (especially after having spent some time with the JVC RS-400, RS-500 and Epson's LS10000). They also mention that the only thing CRT could do better than present day projectors was fade to black. They're simply wrong! The LS10000 does a fade to black every bit as good as my gamma corrected Sony CRT G90 projector did and I had to do back flips across the room to be able to get it to do this. They forget that total fades with a CRT crushed shadow detail and therefore required some fine tuning of gamma. These guys are so biased against DIs that I don't believe they gave the Epson's laser modulation a fair shake -- it's probably one of the best, if not the best, implementation of a DI type device currently in production.
Edit: they also talk about the JVC's light corners and yes they saw them but they claim they don't affect actual content. Yes, they do! At least the light corners of my RS-500 do. Albeit it's only in the darkest scenes and fades but I can definitely see the corners occasionally and it does annoy me -- so close yet so far. These guys should qualify their statements -- they may not see light corners with content but that does not mean that every person won't see light corners with content.
A big thanks to you, I have got the new X5000 RS400 everything you have said is spot on incredible picture quality and the 3D is stunning.
