Why replace the tiles at all? Is there a reason not to just wrap the panels you currently have in velvet?

Based on the manual, it looks like you can override HDR and put the projector into SDR mode using the Dynamic Range menu.

I'm coming to a similar conclusion as you. I can't decide if I want Epson to surprise me and pull a rabbit out of it's hat, or if I'd rather the 5040 turn out to be the incremental update it looks...

Since Dirac is a room correction, I don't think there's any reason upgrading an amp would change the calibration. That said, I haven't changed amps, so I can't say for sure. The measurements...

It is a quibble because it distracts from the main point. He mentioned purchasing a mic from Amazon or Dayton Audio. He should not do that, as it's a waste of money. Either stick with the mic that...

We can quibble over the build quality of the included Emo mic, but I stand by the assertion that buying another batch calibrated mic is a waste of money. That was the main point - do you disagree?

I'm pretty sure the comparison pictures come from pre-packaged sales collateral from Epson. Those weren't screen captures.
