Ugh. I hear a new buzzing noise as it tries to turn on, to the left of the lens as I face the lens, I think, like a misaligned fan blade whacking against an obstacle, and she won't come to life. This happened about a month ago so I opened her up, made sure the lamp and everything was well seated, put it back together, cleaned the filter, and it seemed fine, but now it seems to be a recurring issue. Anyone?
Is the 8000 the nearest replacement in the current US series? I don't really need 3D but I don't want to compromise anything else and the PTAR100U seems like a lesser series.
P.S. I'm on my 2nd lamp and it still should have hundreds of hours left on it.
P.P.S. Update. Same as before. Dismounted, removed and replaced lamp, and it now works again.
In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass, etc., any more than we pick the ending of a play. High fidelity means an unmodified, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original artist's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..
