At IFA today Epson announced following models:
eh-tw5500 (replacement for 7500UB) - 200000:1 CR, 1600lm, FI, at 3300euro (available in November)
eh-tw4400 (replacement for 6500UB) - 130000:1 CR, 1600lm, FI, at 2800euro (available in November)
eh-tw3500 (replacement for 7100) - 36000:1 CR, 1800lm, at 1800 euro (available in September)
eh-tw2900 (replacement for 6100) - 18000:1 CR, 1600lm, at 1600 euro (available in September)
new US model numbers are unknown, replacement info I've prepared myself based on last year EU range
as for the price I believe it will be the same but nominated in USD
What interesting is that Epson has changed marketing approach and there is broader distance between models then before.
Last year there were not so much reasons to buy 7500UB instead of 6500UB. 7500UB looked like black painted 6500UB for extra $1K.
Now expensive models have clear advantages...
