Yes. The JVC still lacks that slight naturalness to the image that the Sony possesses.

This is my guess as well. Or possibly some kind of issue with the panel driver not being able to provide sufficient color information to the panels. Like on the 1000/1100ES, the issue is present...

The issue I have with the asking price is that it offers nothing new" or innovative. UST projectors have been around for a while and, yes, even 1080p ones. So why then is it okay to think Sim2 can...

Sure, why wouldn't I be? :) I have a 665ES here now. It's got an excellent image. Native contrast is somewhere between the RS400 and RS500. Going off of my eyes for this. I haven't measured yet. The...

Supposedly the newest firmware fixes the issues. We'll have to see if there are any contrast or brightness changes to this new model compared to the 665ES.

I wholeheartedly agree. For $15000 you can buy one hell of a TV that's going to be competitive in size to what the Sim2 can do AND offer a better image. I also think a wall mounted TV can look pretty...

I remember Andreas telling me that if the 1100ES didn't have it's issue with contrast loss he most likely would have kept it and preferred it over the JVCs. But because his unit, along with basically...

This might be a silly question, but does that firmware have English menus? Also, are you using the Samsung or Panasonic UHD BD player?

It has to do with something in his settings. Straight up NNEDI3 up-scaling does not "overcook" the image.

Here is the reference 1080p frame:

Brighter, but it greatly reduces the amount of contrast compared to other methods of sync. Considering how low DLP already is with on/off contrast we wouldn't want to lower it even more.

I don't have that, but I'll see if I can get my hands on it. What I'll say is that video is not "pixel" based, it's more reminiscent of random dithered noise that happens to form an image. The reason...
