Bought a JVC RS10 refurb a 3 years ago and really have enjoyed it thanks to great input/reviews on this forum!!!

Wondering what the current market offerings/advances are today in getting something newer and selling the RS10. Are the new offerings in the 1,000-2,000 range now eqivalent or better then the RS10? Kind of wondering where the improvements are, and at what price points? Also wondering about 3D adding capability.

I have a light controlled man cave with a 133" hi power dalite screen. watch blueray 50% and HDTV 50%.

Thanks!


Also looking for a projector for master bedroom that would have some ambient light that would include daytime viewing (it's a loft bedroom) so probably a brighter than average projector. prob same 50/50 HDTV/blueray, probably around 90" diag range screen.

On your 1st part, I had the RS10 so the RS45 would be a nice upgrade, assuming AVS still had the B-stock; it would fit your budget. It's better in terms of sharpness, contrast, brightness and lower noise level. I did not use the 3D feature so I cannot comment. About the only down sides are the cheap remote and the chassis built quality, sort of cheaper looking.

thanks, saw they had an RS48 i believe. Were the 3D issues corrected in that model?

How about the darby device? would that be an option to add in lieu of an upgrade?

trying to get the most bang for the buck.

Ahem!

I also had the Darbee but sold it after the RS45, figuring that I do not need it but several people told me that I should have kept it, so YMMV. When I had the Rs10 and the Sony VW85, the Darbee did help though.

The RS48 would be another step up, of course.

Is there a better deal out there than a bstock jvc rs4800 for 2300? I'm hoping to get around 1000 for my RS10.

We're not suppose to talk about prices other than used stuff. No idea what the RS4800 might run but you can always call Mike at AVS.

However, if you can get the RS4800 at that price, that is darn good.
