Well, best of luck. You're going to miss out on A LOT of information if you're going to rely on the AVS Blu-ray thread. For example, there's a ton of horror titles (some remastered) which have been...

Based on the projectors you've viewed and measured in your room, what is the minimum native contrast requirement to get rid of that grey or muddy look in low APL scenes?

A good unity gain screen (such as the Stewart ST100) pretty much solves that screen texture issue while watching content. I find some plasmas can have a hint of dirty screen effect (I could see it...

I find the contrast (and thus, blacks) terrible in commercial theaters which happen to use DLPs. I don't believe this is the way filmmakers intended their movies to look, but it's just the...

The new Sonys do sound pretty interesting for someone looking for a flat panel. I wonder how it will compare to OLED with both properly calibrated.

However, just speaking for myself I prefer...

It sounds like they will need to improve the e-shift too to keep it on par with the newer JVCs.

If you haven't done so already, I HIGHLY recommend Chad's audio calibration. It completely destroys the Audyssey auto cal on my Denon X3000 receiver.
