I'm sure its a wondrful projector, but they should have used a slightly larger case... makes no sense to me since several things are blamed on the small case... sheeze. No logic in trying to make it small as possible.... makes no sense.
Which is why if you were running the company they would be out of business
. You also have 8' tall subwoofers IIRC, so size may not matter to you, but it very much matters to the market place. Sim's ability to pull this off is in a chassis of this small size is HUGE and a Coup d'état
in the projection industry. It was perhaps above all the size issue that caused CRT to be destroyed by digital projection long before the image from digital projection compared to it, if this unit were twice the size sales would be 1/10 of what they will be with this unit.
Jason's contrast numbers seem low compared (i.e. not as good) to what I have experienced, but I am not going to report any numbers yet as final adjustments have not taken place. Though I did take issue earlier with coldmachines comment that you don't see hand puppets
. I'm surprised the brightness numbers Jason quoted for the T2 lens were omitted above. 862 lumens. Flame away
I will say those who are bothered by his numbers will not be bothered when they plug the unit in, unless they expect to light up a 14' screen with it. The image is to die for. The RS1 is incredible for the money but this is in a different league altogether.
