Guess that will be a main concern.
When you stop and think about the issue, black level has been the limiting issue since CRT pj's have gone off to join the dead tech.
DI is here to stay and done well should be welcome.
I am pretty excited that Art was able to measure 1K Lumens in best mode. My ancient, in practical terms, PE-7700 Probably is doing about 400 with 2200 hours on the lamp. Rather dim even in the cave. Screen is 133". A Da-Llite HP. With the placement of the 7700 the gain is perhaps 1.4. Enough for the set-up to work, with a new lamp.
When the wife, catches on last evening as we switch, due to a technical issue to the lowly 50", but new, plasma screen she comments: "This is so much brighter, sharper and better" , "Well, yes it is 1080P and all that jazz".
