One gets the opinion that the Redray projector is around a year away. Just a gut.

Oh just great, so we get no motion blur, great 3D, and blacks that look like fog....we already get that from DLP, albeit not 4K yet, and for many the LCOS advantage was the black levels over the DLP...so now, at least in this early iteration of 4K, we lose one of the attractive parameters of LCOS relative to DLP
I still think that high o/f contrast is an important aspect for a home theater, if not a commercial one. I.e., that's about the only thing about my Sony1000ES that I would like to see improved, i.e., a native o/f CR that is up to the JVC's. The ~ 1200 fully calibrated lumens that it produces is really enough for most HT setups (though it would be nice to have a lamp source that doesn't dim so rapidly). JVC would just about be there if they went to a 330 watt lamp like Sony, and also delivered a true 4K product.
So I think 'having it all' for </= $15K should be in reach, at least for screen sizes </= ~12 ft or so. Probably the greatest drag on this coming about is that the market for such is so small.
If you don't want the best, for the least, and want it yesterday...then you're on the wrong forum
