I keep seeing second hand JVC's about the place for sale and wonder about upgrading my HC5
The JVC 3D and e-shift seem interesting, particularly the later models. From above i'm guessing that the JVC X7000 (RS500) or JVC DLA-X7500 (RS-520) series are a yes, but below, perhaps not??? JVC X5000 (RS400) less so ???
I've now got my room mostly coated in black velvet walls and ceiling with big black rugs, light controlled which made a huge difference.
The 120" acoustic screen with 4" velvet borders made a bit of an improvement over an old home made one, though I may need to back it with speaker cloth as my old one didn't pass light the way this one does and i may be getting bounce back
I'm also using a eecolour 3D Lut box as I found the CMS a pig and made a big difference too! (1080p max due HDMI 1.3)
I guess i'm still surprised that a "cheap" old projector is still doing pretty well at keeping up with high end new tech....4K would be nice, but e-shift faux-K i don't know and the low end 4K UHD compatible seem worth avoiding.....And until laser (for enough light to do HDR BT2020) or REAL 4K drops to reasonable levels i'll keep twiddling my thumbs and waiting!
Is it wrong that half the temptation with UHD is Atmos as sneaky licencing means that new releases on Bluray usually don't have it, despite being able to and UHD's do
Semi tempted with a cheap 3D DLP to add to the ceiling to augment!
