I found in my set up that I got 1% more (measured) light output at the screen when using my Isco II lens compared to just zooming with my old JVC X35 and my newer X500. When using the lens I have to...

I'm 11' back from a 48" high 2.35:1 screen currently using eshift (aka 'faux 4k') on a JVC X500 projector, so I voted 'under 3 x HD'. That works out 2.75 of screen height. When I first installed the...

That is exactly my plan for next year's living room remodel. By then I'll be 50 :eek: and I don't want a living room that looks like an AV dealer's stock room, nor like a Goth's paradise. I want a...

The non A version won't be HDCP 2.2 and DTS:X capable though if that matters, so you'd need to pay the extra for the 'A' model for that for it to be a fair comparison. The other issue is if you have...

I reckon it will work fine: You should be able to set up the JVC amp to use the 'CD' input on the back panel. Set that input to stereo on the JVC and connect the pre outs of the SR7010 to this input...

I saw this when I had a Nakamichi AV processor briefly installed in my system. However, since it went I've not suffered this issue.

Since I only got my X500 earlier this year, my plan was to keep it at least 2 years if not longer (it'll probably take me that long to improve my room to a similar level to yours Rich). Extra...

You should bare in mind that when you check the levels with your SPL meter using the amp test tones that the tones aren't corrected by Audyssey. Therefore you may well be measuring any peaks/dips of...

I use the Lumagen for calibration purposes (729 point CMS/21 point greyscale/gamma) and the AR switching is only a convenience: I don't stretch the image in any way while watching a film. I either...
