Granted I haven't used the Sony's scaler, but you can't just make statements like that when you've never even tried MadVR or a Lumagen. How do you know you might actually prefer another scaler? My...

There are better scalers out there, but the Sony's internal scaling is actually pretty decent. I think there are only 2 or 3 better options out there. One involves buying an expensive Lumagen scaler...

Considering these are single chip DLP and we have 144hz that means this has to be a .65" DMD. From what I know a single larger (older) .95" DMD can't do 144hz.

I've just never had a bad experience using a PC for media playback so personally I only have great things to say. Then again I don't use TMT.

These projectors aren't modular so the resolution will remain 1080p. Everything would have to replaced to support 4K. Processing, light path, micro-display device, optics, ect.

It's actually been shown graded .65" DMD's can give you about the same contrast performance the larger .95" DMD can. For instance, my old Runco LS-10i had three .65" DMDs and we saw native contrast...
