Resolution, since he views for nearly one screen width (138" wide from 144")
Possibly in contrast due to the dynamic iris. I am assuming Robert had the iris open on his 50.
Sitting that close the differences with be amplified yes and to a great deal too. It will be a great improvement. But, when I hear smoked as in some of the above posts, I think the product that got smoked... would suck... and if I went to someones Home Theater and saw an RS50, I would not think their theater sucks because of it.
I've calibrated a local members Home Theater with an RS50, and though the outcome was one hell of an amazing picture. He sits farther away from his screen then I would, but from his distance and setup, aka screen size, the RS50 produced a top notch pic.
If I told him by upgrading to a RS57 it would SMOKE his current setup, that would be an exaggeration.
Again, I guess I just don't use words like SMOKE to describe even decent image enhancements.
I'm sure my Sony VPL-VW600ES will be a great improvement over my JVC, because of the lumen output, but I am sure I wont be using a word like SMOKED.
That's not fair to the JVC. I think my RS4810 JVC throws an amazing image, and regardless of how much better I feel the Sony will be, It won't SMOKE it with native 1080P sources.Edited by SOWK - 12/23/13 at 12:49pm
