The secondary output of the Onkyo is definitely HDCP compliant if it is showing an image at all.

If you start with a HDCP protected source, then all connections to that source must be HDCP...

While you may not think so, Epson has never gone up to compete against Sony/JVC in the past, and has maintained products in the $3,000 and under price class, which have been class leaders, for years....

What do you mean the sub-out is not HDCP?

If you feed a HDCP source into a splitter, then all displays connected must be HDCP compliant.

That certainly is a good plan.

I always recommend conduit to critical locations, and if you are 100% set on using HDBT and the associated expense, then it sounds like you are covered.

I ended...

Panasonic has not updated the AE8000 in a couple of years, and doesn't appear to be on track to do so anytime soon. At this point, both the Sony 40ES and the Epson 5030 outperform the AE8000...

But, it's not a 'little' lens shift you are getting. It's 60% up/down, which is far more than any other model offers outside the 8350.

Also, pricing starts at $1,299 MSRP for the 3000. Not...

Shoot me a PM - I'm in Chantilly and more than happy to show my system.

I am using the W1070 on a 161" screen in an unfinished (very) basement setup.

I also have a Sony 40ES that I need to test...

Plasmas aren't actually bright compared to LED flat panels. What you are missing is the deep blacks which make plasmas really 'pop' when viewing them, and if you don't have a good room, then...

That's a heck of a price tag and a dead on typical move for Epson.

I do wonder if they are all using the same $99 E-Torl lamp which the 2000/2030 models use. It would be a real incentive for...

I am not at all a fan of what a dynamic iris does to the image. So, with the DI turned off, the Sony does a better job natively with contrast levels.

As well, almost all reports of the PS3 IR 3D...

3D adds zero cost.

If you want the best image under $3,000, then the Sony 40ES would be my recommendation. The Epson 5030 has a very good image, but I don't think it rivals the native contrast of...
