Exactly! Thanks for the info guys! I knew I brought this up in the right place - no need for a separate thread. Plus, I had sent them an email, and nobody at Wolf bothered to even respond. Moving...

Has anyone had any experience with the Wolf Cinema SDC-6? Looks interesting at 3500 lumens (2200 calibrated). Comes with an outboard processor too. I'm thinking, if it's decent, it would be nice...

I'm definitely interested! I have samples of both the Darkstar .9 and 1.4, and I saw them both in person at the Elite Screens facility. I also have a sample of the DNP 08-85 material. To me, the...

I guess we're not sure yet if that's all it has going for it. How's the black levels, motion, contrast, color, greyscale, etc? How good is the fald? Hopefully, a review and/or folks reporting on...

Exactly my dilemma. I've been eying the 85HU8550, but just not sure about the motion issues. Although, someone just mentioned on the 8550 thread that the last two updates have improved both motion...

I'm guessing "expensive" is a relative term, considering that I think you mentioned 9K. I agree with you completely about the rapidly changing technology and waiting 2 years to get a nice one.

Did you have a particular brand/model of TV in mind yet? I'm curious because I'm debating between TV and projector.

Unfortunately, there's not 5 modular slots, as the previous Dreadnaughts have had. If there were, then for a 7 channel configuration, one could do three of the double 225WPC cards (bridged to...

Thanks for sharing your thought on this! For me, I would use an external processor to do the upscaling, instead of depending upon the 85hu8550 to do it.

Hi Ken (or anyone else who wants to jump on this one),

I have long considered the Samsung UN85HU8550, since it's a big size for a decent price (compared to the 84 or 85" sony 950 series). It's...
