Can someone please post the physical specs on the RS57 – i.e. weight, length, width, height? JVC’s site doesn’t appear to have this detail (yet). Trying to figure out if I could build a shelf for it at the back of the room (~19’ back from the screen) instead of a ceiling install, and if so how deep it will need to be and how much weight it has to handle. Thanks.

Also keep in mind, assuming it's the same as the 2013 models, it needs 200mm clearance in rear for ventilation.

That's what I'm planning to do with the X500R I have ordered. My Mits HC400 is ceiling mounted, but it has to be with it's huge offset and it only weighs something like 8 lbs.

So I’d need a shelf at least 26” deep? That’s pretty substantial.

Anyone have real world experience with shelf vs. ceiling mount? Seems like my optimal throw position will be the back of the room whether I ceiling or shelf mount.

There is no need for a 200mm clearance at the back if you shelf mount on an open shelf (ie with good ventilation on the sides and up). I have an rs45 (same chassis) mounted almost flush to the back wall (about 30-40mmn gap due to plugs/cables, I used a right angle adapter for the power and HDMI cables to put it as far back as possible) and there is no ventilation/overheating issue, even in high lamp. I had it installed that way for about two years. I checked with JVC UK before doing this, and they had no issue with that installation.

You might want to do the same with JVC USA just to make sure your warranty won't be voided, but from a practical point of view it works absolutely fine shelf-mounted with a 30-40mm clearance with the back wall if you use right angled adaptors like I do for power/HDMI. You might need 70-80mm with standard cables, possibly up to 10mm with extra-thick cables.

My shelf is 18" deep (back wall to front of shelf) and the front feet of the PJ rest fully on the shelf. The next shelf is 11" above (but isn't wider than the PJ) and there is nothing to the left/right of the shelves.




Of course there might be some minor variations with this year models as they are more silent, so the fans might spin a bit slower, but the back vents are from air intake only (not exhaust, which is through the front vents) and they are angled, so there shouldn't be any issue really.

I'm upgrading from an old JVC RS-1 to the 4910 and couldn't be more excited. Do you think it would be worthwhile for me to run a network cable to the projector? I am not interested in using a phone or tablet to control it, and I can temporarily connect a network cable if I need to perform a firmware update every now and then. Are there any other reasons for running a network cable to it? Thanks.

No other benefit of running the RJ45 if you don't use IP cmds and can hook one up temporarily for any updates needed. wink.gif

I curentally Have a Panasonic PT-AE7000 projector that i will be replacing with the JVC-X700/RS57, the back of my projector is flush mounted to the wall, with the drywall cut out on both sides and 2 120MM pc fans installed on the back side to help pull in air to the projector does anyone think this will be a problem with the JVC i've used this setup on a few different panasonic projectors with no problem but i know the JVC is longer and taller so i'll need to modify the box anyway i cant really make the box any longer so more of the projector might stick out of the front and also stick out the back side in-between the wall. anyone think this will cause an issue with the JVC?

Good to see a bunch of respondents to the "Which JVC Projector Have You Ordered?" roll call.

Looks like we'll have some reports rolling in soon.

BTW, I nominate lpnaz480 and jollyguy23 as most likely to be the first to receive and post about the new JVC projectors. wink.gif

Looks like I may have the projector before the full room setup, including the audio. If I wanted to preview the projector on a white all, will a typical sound bar be adequate for audio (not quality I get it, but technically), or will I likely have audio sync issues that I’d need an AVR to correct?

So you've waited about 4 generations and will be getting double the contrast at a great price. Nice.

I see there are two top end models this year:

DLA-RS6710 ($12,499 suggested retail), DLA-RS67 ($11,999),

Out of curiosity, does anyone know what makes the RS6710 more expensive?

5 year warranty instead of 3, plus an extra bulb. Factory QC as well I think.

I'm fairly certain it has an additional quality control check and it has an extended warranty over the RS67.

Earlier someone posted a link to the PDF manual for all the 2014 JVC projectors. It has detailed drawings with dimensions and info about clearance under the specifications section. But I don't remember the link.

Im Switching to the RS57/X700 from a panasonic pt-ae7000, before that i had the pt-ae5000,4000,3000. so this is my first jump from Panasonic to JVC, has anyone else here made the switch at some point from the panasonic's to the JVC's, i've swapped projectors almost every year for the past 5, i only ever seem to run up 200-300 hours per, i figured this time making the switch to a way better model might keep me on the same unit for a few years... worked out well tho because every unit i've purchased in the past came with extra bulb so wasn't too hard to re-sell, my x700 also came with 2 pairs of glasses, the RF glasses adapter and a spare bulb.

Not sure how relevant it is but I started with an older Panasonic AE900 projector and moved to the JVC RS20 (50,000:1 contrast) 4 years ago. It was of course a huge upgrade in every way.
When I bought my RS55 projector 2 years ago I sold my RS20 to my friend who also replaced his Panasonic projector and, again, he was just giddy at the increase in contrast and over all
picture quality.

You are going for an absolute killer projector (in all likelihood) with almost matchless contrast at this point, so it should be a keeper and quite an upgrade.
