With Sony offering a native 4k model under $9999.00(Sony VPL- VW320ES) currently, JVC should have a competitor to this unit by Dec 2017 if not earlier.

I mean't the VS4500 as replacement for their existing phosphor wheeled sim units. But they may offer this in addition to the phosphor wheeled VS2500 as you say.

This appears to be their simulation replacement, not intended for HT. High refresh rate, possibly low input lag may dictate the low CR. I have heard that the JVC high CR comes at a cost of needing to...
