I've compared fully calibrated, matched peak white output X35 with Isco II lens against an X500 without lens, using e-shift. The pixel structure isn't visible on the X500 at all even close to the...

It's just something that I have been recommended to do in the past by more experienced Professional calibrators. It makes sense to me since 75% more likely to be close to what you see on screen...

What level did you calibrate the colour gamut at? If you used 100% then sure the charts may look good, but you aren't likely to get much video content with 100% saturation. Therefore it might be...

Out of interest; you guys that are running 'hot' do you also run a house curve? Do you measure 'hot' based on the AVR test tones and SPL meter or just where your AVR set up leaves the levels (and...

Not sure about this 'wash' term (I'm UK based) but I'm just pointing out that if you have a long throw set up then you may not gain any extra light when using a lens. I've seen too many posts which...

IMHO get the JVC rather than the lens, however at this late stage I'd wait to see what the new JVCs bring (X5000, X7000 & X9000). Budget projector with a budget lens isn't going to compete with a mid...

It isn't linear with JVCs: I've posted before, but with my old lens I was at minimum zoom with my X35. If I removed the lens and zoomed I got 100 Lux at the screen, with the lens in place I got a...

True...in the past you've reported gains in brightness that I didn't get trying similar adjustments on my own X500.

Adding an A-lens will not in itself improve the panning/bluring issue. It is more a function of the projector itself (though some settings can make it worse I've found such as ramping up the...

I think you got the wrong quote Ankurjohriddsmd. :confused: Unless you're saying you're interested in something that reduces image quality, but at least it's cheap.

Can't help with the OP's question, but can I ask what 'ID' stands for? I know it means a commercially available product, but can't come up with what the I & D might stand for. :o

mini DSP 2 x 4 seems to do much, if not all that the DSP in iNuke does? Get one of those then combine with any other amp without having to worry about it having DSP built in.

Indeed, no harm in experimenting...I don't know if you've tried fully matching LCR but if you haven't then maybe give it a go at some point.

It's all about balancing compromises in HT since very...
