Just out of curiosity, it seems like the CR-1, as it was unveiled, is now listed on the Triad Website as the LCR2? Why the numeric shift from 1 to 2? Is it no longer the flagship of the Cinema Reference line?
Thanks for the response, Paul. Well, purchasing those will be overcome by competing priorities shortly, as I only have a couple months to secure my gear, so ill stick with the Cinema Plus and invest the additional funds elsewhere. BTW, Bi-weekly is twice a month; semi-weekly is twice a week. its quite confusing, because our minds wants to accept bi-weekly as twice a week. lol...I strugge with this at the office.
Oblivion was omitted from this list because it wasn't nomited in the Best Visual Effects category. Now, if there was a cetegory for Best Visual Quality, then Oblivion would lead the pack. Every second of that movie is reference video quality.
Does anyone know whether the Cinema Reference CR-1 models have been released yet? They were unveiled in 2012 and seem to be at every trade show, but I haven't seen anything on them since then. I was considering the Cinema Plus package, but now I'm leaning toward the CR-1's instead. I shot the question to a couple dealers, but haven't heard anything yet.
As a former RS56 owner, I'm mulling the Sony 600ES v. RS-57 right now. The JVC-level contrast that I've grown accustomed to with the RS-56 v.s. the resolution and brighness of the 600ES. Screen will be between 11 and 12 feet wide. I'm really torn about this right now.
The Lumagen Radiance processors may be the single greatest investment someone can make in their ante-projector video chain. CMS, NLS, and a plethora of additional features make it one of the most versatile devices ive ever come across.
