Since I have my rear bipolar surrounds mounted about 5.75ft off ground on back wall, rear height seems redundant.

And while not discrete DPL IIz which I use already supports my front height...

Honestly, again, in my home theater I don't think either of the new formats are necessary or frankly even desirable. I think I am pretty much maxed out at 9.2 (L/R mains, center, L/R heights, L/R...

Great point, Craig. Atmos' required speaker setup is too inflexible for my multi-row home theater that has HVAC ducting running through the ceiling near the seating areas. I am sure Atmos' strict...

I just saw someone justify their bright corners as "okay" because they are masked off projecting in 2.35:1 in the RS500 thread.

And it is not the first time someone has said that; I am sure many...

Meaning, unlike upscaling SD to HD, upscaling HD to UHD is extremely easy in terms of...

LS10000 has sealed light path unlike their LCDs. Probably economics of scale why they use same filter.

I think the Epson LS10000 has been the best value under $15k since it came out, and remains the best value when looked at as a total package.

If I wasn't so picky about 3D I'd own one by now....

Note that "extreme H/V shift" means that when extreme shift is *not* used the picture will likely be extremely sharp across the whole frame.

JVC RS400
JVC RS600

So if you need more lumens or...

I believe Philips has a special partnership with Optoma only.

Thus this will likely be lamp/wheel.
