Funny...I've been experimenting with different house curves myself lately. My subs are DIY ones; a pair of 15" sealed using Fi Q series drivers and an iNuke 6000DSP. The DSP gives me a lot of...

Yes, I will try it for a while. No big rush to sell the lens as I've had a lot of interest already, I'm sure someone will want it even if I wait a month or two before advertising it.

No the Mini 3D only has a single HDMI output, though I will of course set up two memories.

That doesn't sound promising for my plan then. :( If I end up keeping the Isco II then by the time I replace the X500 with a true 4K model then maybe it'll be too late to sell it for any more than...

One of the reasons I justified changing from my black HD350 was that the white X35 looked (slightly) less obvious when you walk into my room.

Actually, for me anyway, the cost of new speakers isn't a minor issue. As well as the points you have made (and that I really don't like the idea of even more AV clutter in my living room) I'm a firm...

It depends on what zoom range the projector is used in when the lens is in place. In my set up I have to put my X35 at minimum zoom when using my A-lens (Isco II) due to the very long throw I have...

A couple of years ago I did some measurements in my room when I had a JVC HD350. I used a standard checkerboard pattern and averaged the results to get a figure of 75:1.

Hi Rich, haven't conversed with you for a while.

I've used an Isco II lens with my old HD350 (RS10) and the last two years with my X35 (RS46). I do prefer using the lens to just zooming, however my next projector is likely to be a 4K or at least...

Probably not a popular view on here, but I saw the VW500 in the same (very good all black room) as a JVC X35 (RS46). While there were many things about the VW500's image and motion I liked, on the...

While I don't have the newer JVC with autocal, I do run a Chromapure Pro/Lumagen set up with my older JVC X35 so I'm familiar with using autocalibration.

What I have found is that you still need a...

Thanks guys. I think I'll just keep my eyes open for another used deal on a 105/105D.

That way it will be price neutral by the time I've sold my 818, BDP93 and Darbee 5000. (In UK prices I'd be...
