I choked up a little of my coffee when I read this. Right now I have a Marantz VP-15S1 and a JVC DLA-X500. The Marantz has a custom made Konica Minolta lens designed specifically for the light engine...

Most of the time manufacturers do not give out this information in its entirety. Sometimes nothing but throw is given. My point here is that most of the time all the information isn't given so it's...

The names are generally good, but we'll never know the quality of the lens. Just because it's a Zeiss, Leica, or Nikon lens does not mean it's always going to be better than a lens from another...

Ignorance is bliss, that's for sure. :)

The unit you have is still good in terms of picture quality. What you really get when moving to a newer unit is a lot more light output, higher contrast,...

Take out your bulb and clean the port glass with some lint free wipes. It's really as simple as that. Just make sure the cleaning solution you use is meant for optics. 99% Isopropyl Alcohol is good...

You're right. Temperamental is a poor choice of words. Though I don't believe either of us referred to the ST100 or ST130 as an "ambient light rejecting screen". We just said the ST130 would do...

Check my edited post. The ST130 is a good option. Or even the new Firehawk G4 looks promising. Compared to what they charge for a BD screen I don't think there's a huge difference in pricing....

Let's put it this way. If you didn't have to deal with any ambient light and your room was treated well for reflections, placing something like a Stewart ST100 screen next to the Black Diamond would...

You could look into a high power screen from Da-lite. It has decent light rejecting properties from ambient light and won't have visible hotspotting from that mounting location because the screen...

Do you already have the BD screen? It's really not needed at this screen size and there are several PQ decreasing qualities to this screen. They have a pretty big sheen and the optical coating they...

If HDMI port 2 works with the same exact signal it most likely means there's a physical issue with the port, aka it's broken.

Like I said, there's no right or wrong just recommendations built around normal human visual acuity. In the end it comes down to personal preference. The recommended distances are to get you started.

Projection lenses are a bit tricky to talk about. Depending on price range, one expects certain things from a lens. Ironically, it's the under $10000 crowd that expects the most out of a lens in...

For TVs this is usually the case, but for projectors this is never true. The cost of high quality lenses prevents this.

There is no right or wrong, only recommended seating distances. It all has to do with visual acuity. The 1.5x screen widths is one that's very commonly used if you're presenting 1080p content. Sony...

I think it's naive to think we can expect a revolutionary product for less than $10000. Like the LS10000 shows us, we can expect one thing at a time. We'll get what we want eventually, but each of...

I misunderstood you. I thought you were trying to say that both things were necessary. I think your approach is the right one to take. I'd rather sit farther back and use that as my low pass filter.

The one thing the JVC has is economies of scale. This affords it a much better lens and than its price would indicate. It has one of the nicest lenses in the sub $15000 price market for projectors....
