The Mod Factory is now open... or nearly open would be a better way to put it.
After much testing and very consistent and stellar image performance, I'm near ready to make this happen.
I've decided to move forward with this latest and very last version of these Marquee mods by offering them two ways. 1- Full set (VIM and Neck Boards). 2 - Neck boards only
The Neck Board only option is for someone wanting to upgrade to get the higher bandwidth performance, and because they already have a certain version of either 02 or 03 VIM that was also modified by me, they would only need to upgrade their neck boards. The dowwnside to this option is that it may require a clean stock version of neck boards to make this happen. Some of the previous versions of the neck board mods may not be situated for the changes.
The cost for the Full Set is: $575.00 - with the cost for the neck boards only being: $300.00 I'm not expecting much interest in these, and because I'll not be able to pump more than a few at a time out because I'm also more devoted to other technical ventures that would limit any time i have to making this happen. So with this limitation, for the few who has been waiting for these, I will only make this happen either by what boards I'll have on hand ready to go out the door, or for anyone who first send me their boards to modify. I'll take payment only when they are ready to ship. A few a month would be fine with me.
The real power of this version of the mods is in the neck board changes. The VIM changes are also an improvement over anything previous, but the difference may not be that discernible. When Steve dropped off his boards, we tested his modified 02 VIM in my projector against my latest modified 02 VIM and the difference was quite noticeable. I'm offering the neck board only option to also help me make this happen at a lower cost while still being able to get the same great bandwidth performance.
The only other person at present that has these mods is William who has the blended Marquees. He only has the neck board done. After we had installed the neck boards on his setup the picture improvement was a Super sharp image and greatly improved black level performance. William complained about black levels not being there and that it was not as bright as he thought it should be. Once we installed the modified neck boards the first thing we noticed was the very sharp image and exceptional image detail. WE also noticed a huge improvement in low level detail and great black level performance. the changes afforded him three very noticeable improvements. And it left me going home not being able to see the same level of sharpness on my setup... but that was until I tried out this Samsung BD-P1600 Blu Ray player i now have connected. I'm now getting the same super sharp 1080P image
