Sell it on craigslist.

Why are you getting rid of it? What are you replacing it with?

In fact, that is a GREAT question for me to ask....black level measurements?

I see that the RS400/500/600 have Lumens levels of 1700/1800/1900.

Has anyone set 2 of these projectors together...

Perhaps I meant black level. When the image is 100% black on the RS400 its brighter than 100% black on the RS46. The RS400 is also much brighter, so perhaps that had something to do with it too.

I'm sure your right. Price is almost never at the top of my checklist. After all, it's much cheaper to buy the right thing the first time.

I was just sharing my thoughts.

You also have to factor what your coming from and how long your likely to keep the new projector.

$1600 is a lot extra if it's going to be replaced "soon" (real 4K on the way).

Is it cutting/fading out the same as your Panasonic you mentioned earlier?

Is it cutting (immediate) or fading (gradual)?

Sony S1500/ S3500 / S4500 / S5500 / S6500 Blu-ray players

That's correct, what slimoli is saying is that the S6500 must be set to BITSTREAM (which is not the default setting) to send the ATMOS signal to the receiver. (Whats actually happening is BITSTREAM...

Another benefit of the RS500 is the extension to 3-year warranty.

Oh that may be. I haven't seen it in person. I just want things I can wipe down with a clean damp cloth and not worry about scratching.

I'll be sure to avoid seeing it. :p

Yuck.

I'd pay extra to get the RS400 chassis with RS500 internals. Glossy scratches/swirl marks by looking at it funny. I hate anything glossy.

I ended up with the RS400 coming from a RS46 and...

Best in ceiling speakers for Atmos?

Even still. Unbeatable at double that price.

I don't know anything about them, but Yammy makes decent stuff.

$10 each is easily no brainer territory.

Are they new, can you get more? ;)

Short: Zoomed out, image big.
Long: Zoomed in, image small.

That's why sometimes a long distance between the lens and screen is called a 'long throw'.

Just remember, the Xbox One or One S does not bitstream. Also, do not chose a X1 over X1S.

Unless you can wait it out for a 'possible' bitstream update, I'd strongly recommend the Sony S6500.
