What if I designed the riser so that there'd be a lip all the way around to wrap the edge of the carpet around?

What were the four previous projectors? Because the Sony is a hell of a lot sharper than my last one, the JVC RS46.

A friend of mine met a JVC rep recently, he couldn't go into detail, but hinted that while there will be improvements, they will be incremental at best. Better contrast, hopefully brighter, but no...

Dolby is really falling down on advertising the fact that Atmos can work with set ups as small as 5.1 or 7.1. More speakers or the modules to put on top of existing speakers are desirable but not...

Wait a sec, where do you get 800 lumens in 3D mode if it's around 950 calibrated? 3D mode is high lamp with the iris all the way open right? Should be more like 1400 lumens in 3D mode. Game mode...

Well the Sony is a bit sharper than the JVC even without Reality Creation turned on, but almost negligibly so. With RC on, the JVC can't compete. JVCs with eShift probably can, but I haven't gotten...
