Don't be shy about sending it back again and again until you get one that works the way you expect. I had the revolving door of Epson projectors at my place for quite some time.

I think I'm misremembering a comparison between Epson and JVC, not Epson and Sony. It's besides the point, as he's not looking at projectors in the Sony price range. The Epson 5040 will accept a 4k...

Does your laptop have HDMI or DisplayPort? If so, use that. You'll be able to test up to 8 channels, including subwoofer that way.

Pixel shifting works just fine at resolving 4k detail. Most reports have the 5040 sharper than the Sony's native 4k projectors (until you get into the stupid expensive territory). The 5040 and...

15' is a good distance. You should get a pretty bright picture. A projector will never be as bright as a TV in a room with ambient lighting, but it's not unwatchable. In fact, it can cast a pretty...

I'm not exactly sure what you mean. To generate a test signal from REW, you'd generally connect your laptop directly to the XMC-1 using HDMI or DisplayPort.

It seems odd that there would be an option for negative perceptual sharpening. Even though the default is 5, I'd have to think 0 is Off, 5 is half way up, and 10 is aliasing city. One way to test...

Aside from cost and a black chassis, I don't think the HW45ES has any advantages over the 5040 projector. Worse contrast, no 4k, no WCG, no HDR (although this takes some trickery to get working...
