4K, UHD and the UHD BD spec is used interchangably and is confusing the issue. The changes that are coming with what is commonly referred to as "4K" is also about gamut, increased bit depth and...

I wouldn't say the 350 is true 4k as even though it has the resolution it lacks the expanded gamut and high dynamic range. In a sense the ls1000 is as much "true 4k" as the 350 just that it has...

I cant see how the panels have anything to do with the gamut. The primaries have already been generated before the light hits the panels. Light source spectrum, prism/grating setup, and filters are...

I seem to recall that an on uhp-lamp on-off cycle is equivalent to about 2h of use. I.e. if it is less than a 2h break leave it on.

Just a comment regarding acoustics. Resonances are only relevant for base frequencies and those are not directional. I.e. it doesn't matter if you toe the speakers in or not the base will radiate all...

I would rather have an x700 over a 300es for the same money or a 500es for that matter so I don't see the point. Contrast is much more important than the extra resolution in my opinion. These models...

That's true, but the difference is only apparent with the darkest of dark content. I've got both in my HT right now, a Planar 8150 and a JVC RS4910. The 4910 definitely has a better black level,...

The runco is a 2008 model and is a dlp without any dynamic iris. It's black level and contrast will be very poor compared to current models. As your screen is limited to 120'' diagonal you don't need...

I run an x35 on a 138 inch diagonal 2.35:1 studiotek 130 1.3 gain screen (equivalent in width to a 145 inch 16:9). I run it in high lamp with fully opened iris. To me in 16:9 mode which is about 110...

Mark,
They could put in a more powerful lamp... Of course it probably requires a redesign of the chassis to remove the extra heat.

Depends on the price. I am actually happy with the image quality of my x35, but I would really like to have more lumens for my 138'' scope screen. 1500 calibrated lumens and x500 performance and...

I dont believe reflectiveness has anything to do with it. However, lcd based projectors (including lcos and sxrd) must polarize the light from the lamp before it enters the lcd panels, which cuts the...

I believe rec2020 plus hdr is really, really far off. More than 5 years for sure, maybe never in home projection. Sure the movies from the hockey puck didn't impress more than bd. But I dont think...

I would imagine rec2020 will cover all of it and then some. As others eluded we will probably only see DCI color space in the beginning though.

To me the sharpness differences between the jvc and epson are so small it wouldn't factor in at all for me. However, the color looks way too cold on the epson, but Ekki's last post explains that.

Just a thought. The Epson doesn't use the same light source as the Sony, so it likely doesn't have the same unfiltered spectrum. If it has more saturated natural primaries it doesn't need to filter...
