Brightest FullHD 3D DLP projector under $3,000 USD?

"Calibrated" meaning we would want to be at least close to rec.709 for color. There are some bright DLP units with yellow, cyan, white or clear segments in their color wheels which can produce those lumen number while on full lamp (new lamp)... But no (subjectively) decent color with those units. Unless you go with Sim2 3D projectors (>> $10000+) there are no options as a single PJ solution as of today, I believe.
Yeah, right now there's still nothing that gets close to this brightness whilst remaining particularly color-accurate.
I think for driving larger screens, the best way forward might be an already-color-bright projector (like the BenQ W7000 discussed here, or the W1070/HT1075/Optoma HD50) mated to a screen with a bit of gain. Kind of like what AV_Integrated uses to drive his 161" screen (in Eco mode!)

BenQ HT2050 Projector; Kodi (on Ubuntu, OpenELEC & S802) via Sony STR-DH540 AVR with Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS SE 5.1 Audio + Jamo 210 Sub. Emby for Mobile Streaming.
