Yes it is really interesting. What seems like a long time ago, there was a very interesting thread when Art had a RS1 over to his place to compare against his super sweet stacked G90 setup. He gave a very favorable review of the RS1 at the time. It was pretty cool that a cheap little RS1 could come somewhat close to the stacked setup.
Art seemed impressed, but at the time it was not good enough to replace the crt system. He now has a really nice sim2 projector and is happy with it. I'm sure he would not be willing to part with that baby for a RS2, but I think that if he took a RS2 into his theater, he would have some good things to say about it (with some other criticism as well). Umm, I would trade my RS2 for his Sim2 also methinks.
Plus if I didn't like it as much, I could sell it and buy much more than the RS2.
I haven't been over to the CRt forum for a while. But I do hold those guys over there in high regard.
The best HD image I have seen to date was a perfectly calibrated G90 some years ago. The screen wasn't huge, but the quality of the image was sooooo awesome. At the time the G90 cost about 50K and the Faroudja processor that was running it was another 50k. I am really happy that the digitals are getting closer to that standard.
I am also really happy about how far the video processing has come in the last few years too. You can spend 3k now and do much much more than the 50k systems could do.
