With my RS45/X30 I can also achieve minimal crosstalk by simply reducing the contrast setting in the menu. Maybe this is something that JVC is aware of and they simply made a firmware for the RS46/X35 where this reduced contrast is built-in. It definitely impacts brightness and pop negatively but reduces ghosting to almost nothing. If that were to be the case here, then JVC have not 'really' done anything to improve the situation.
Although, seeing as the native contrast of the JVC is much higher than that of the Sony or Epson, it would be fair of them to do so imho, but obviously judging from the screenshots they are nowhere near the brightness of the Sony, which (assuming levels of crosstalk are equal between the two) still puts the Sony on top in that respect.
Zombie, may I ask at what CT setting the X35 in the A/B-stack setup was when you took the screenshot?
Was the level of crosstalk at that time equal/better/worse than the HW50?
