By that time or shortly thereafter, the 500/600 will be replaced with a new model. And its smply not a question of picking the gain needed for whatever projector and whatever screen size you desire. Screens have a tremendous impact on the ultimate image quality. There are many factors to consider. Be sure to start working with Mike early in the process.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to try to wait as long as possible to buy the equipment that will likely be changing drastically such as projector, AVR etc. I don't have a good real world grasp on the pros and cons of the different screens yet. I do want an acoustically transparent screen. At a high level, I'm guessing that is a negative for picture quality.

One thing you can do, is make friends with AVS forum members that would be willing to have you over, so you can see different screens in real theater settings. AT screens can look great. It's all about trade offs.

matrix adjustment

how often do you guys make a matrix adjustment ? Each time I'm using the VP, I have to go through a manual readjust, this instability is rather boring so I'm wondering if I'm the only one in this situation.
thanks

You can't if you want to catch up to the boys in the 20K posts club. I lost multiple thousands of posts when posting under AV Science sales for two years. Its OK. I deducted my lost posts count as an ordinary business expense deduction

When the time comes to buy, make sure you give Mike at AV Science (who responded to you) a call and get a quote. You will be happy you did.

Call him before, way before quote time. Do not try and design yourself based on what may be popular by others. Most people think whatever they have is great and they nailed the cost benefit and spending one cent more would be a foolish waste of money. Not all. There is lots of good info on the forum and you will quickly figure out who has knowledge and who rather blindly says do as I did. This happens with screens because it is almost impossible to view multiple screens under the same conditions and the inadequacy of tests with small samples. People tend to chose the brightest piece of paper size sample.

I'm using a 120" 16:9 Seymour Center Stage XD AT with my 600ES. No regrets.

Question

The default settings for sharpness and RC are really high, do the purists set both sharpness, RC resolution and smoothness to zero?

No. The sharpness should be set so that it is set one click below visible ringing on a sharpness pattern. You can use any of a variety of patterns that have verticle black lines. If the line starts to thicken or exhibit a halo on one side, go back.

On the 1000/1000ES Most but not all find that putting RC on is is best with resolution set to minimum and any way from min to ablout 3 or 4 on noise filtering.

On the 500/600ES the lens is not as good as on the 1000/1100es and a little more RC can help this. something like 8 on the resolution and maybe around 6 on the noise filtering. I am, sure 500/600ES owners will offer there settings.

Can anyone out there recommend a firm in Houston that can help me set up and calibrate my 600ES? I'd like them to be able to calibrate the audio s well. Not sure who has the equipment and know-how to do this.
