I think the Bogan speakers differ from the NEAR in that they are voiced for non-critical background music and PA, whereas the NEAR are aimed more toward the audiophile.

So how does the HD91+ relate to the HD92/93?. And is the claimed 1500 Lumens before or after taking into consideration the H-K effect? In other words is it "the equivelant of 1500ANSI from a...

I'd go with a brighter projector engine than rely on big screen gain to achieve adequate FL. The BD screen in particular suffers from color shift issues. They're OK for board rooms and exhibition...

NEAR makes outdoor speakers that sound really good and that are impervious to year-round weather conditions. I recently heard their LB8 and was blown away. It's bigger than most outdoor bracket-type...

I suspect the industry will try to move towards a business model built around "recurring revenue"...toll booths...like cheap copiers needing frequent (and costly) replacement ink cartridges.

HDR should evolve into a 'must have' feature soon enough. It will probably command a premium at first and soon thereafter become part of the basic fabric of most display devices. For me, HDR is far...

I seem to recall attending a CEDIA six or seven years ago and seeing a 47" HDR flat panel being displayed in the SIM2 booth. Why did it take so long for the mainstream players to jump on it?

Steve, if SIM2 introduces the 3-laser projector at CEDIA, and if it is in the $50K ball park (not $90K)...that may be the time to upgrade.

Not that much cheaper...$1K less msrp. But the SIM appears to be brighter. On a 110" screen (96" image width) the M.120ST would be a bit over 5' away from the screen. I think Christie may have a...
