I think I'm ok too, loss is probably minimal, hardly perceptible , I think I would have noticed . My original S.I. Solar 4K 1.3 gain never seemed to be bright enough in
3D but somewhere along the journey I learned to appreciate a darker calibrated picture. I'm less likely to think a given picture is too dim now, instead I appreciate the blacks, shadow
detail, contrast and sharpness. I picked up a little light and sharpness with my Panamorph DC1 and a new 136" 2.35:1 @ 1.8 gain curved Draper TecVision . The original Solar was
125" 2.35:1 @ 1.3 gain and flat.
Well, guess I will continue to appreciate the quality until I start to perceive a problem. Unless others can confirm I have lost a substantial amount of lumens I will leave well enough
alone. 2D as always is perfect, 3D is on the edge of appearing to be a little dim , mostly when the movie itself has a dark setting.
