I would also love to hear your thoughts on moving up to the RS2000.
I've been enjoying an RS500 for years. Seating is 15ft from a 133", 16:9, 1.0 gain screen. My second lamp has about 500 hours on low, iris at -6, Auto 2.
No calibration, but I'm pleased with the "generic" settings from Projector Reviews' suggestions for their particular RS600.
The star field in Gravity
is stunning when Sandra spins off into space, and so are the sun's highlights reflecting off earth.
Blade Runner 2049
via the Panasonic UB820 was a revelation in terms of detail, shadows, highlights, and colors (and I don't even have the BT.2020 update from a few years back!).
The $1 million question is whether the RS2000 is a "big enough" upgrade. I'm on the fence now that two fellow RS500/600 owners and projector Jedis diverge: Manni says yes, but Zombie10k says no (for their particular situations).
Going from the RS55 to the RS500 was huge, but it might be time to wait out this round.
