The HD1 is also 50% brighter so instead of an 8 fl image on my 400 lumen/12000 CR 11S2 plus .8 gain screen it was probably around 600 lumen/15000 CR on a 1.4 gain screen. Using math, I was looking at 50% brighter image on a 75% more gain screen.
Using math, I was looking at 15k to 1 CR at 24 fl on the HD1 versus 12k to 1 CR at 8 fl on my 11S2 at 12k to 1. With an ND4 the HD1 + 1.4 gain screen would have had an approx 15k to 1 CR at 6 fl. 8) Very similar to the 11S2. + .8 gain screen.
As you can see black level performance on the 11S2 is similar to that of the HD1 plus ND4 <- which is AMAZING. But even more amazing is that the 11S2 simultaneously has the high ANSI CR, Marantz/DLP look of the 15S1. 8)
I would think that I could probably even go to the Carada BW on my 11S2 and it will have acceptable blacks to me, at 16 fl at 12k to 1 CR. 8)
It looks pretty damn good in iris 3 at 16 fl, with approx 5k CR, too 8) If I switched to my Carada BW I could actually attain 5k to 1 CR at 27 foot lamberts if I wanted to, but of course the blacks would absolutely suck to me at that point.
My setup, still in progress:
