I'm also only using the glasses recommended for the projector, which do deliver a brighter, clearer image overall. Sony TDG-BT500A 3D Glasses
. The picture is plenty Bright even at the default settings. And the 3D pic appears to be upscaled to 4K for each eye. So with a clearer picture and upping the Reality Creation a little bit, you've more than likely never experienced 3D like what the 675 can put out. Unless you go with their higher end models of course.
I'm throwing at right around 13' to a 120" diagonal screen. The make/model is in my sig. The gain is 1.1, special coated, fiberglass backed. Excellent luminescence. I've also been considering upgrading to a Da-Lite motorized screen but can't visually see any reason on why I should. The picture is phenomenal and I have a hard time believing that the Da-Lite will improve the picture. If I'm wrong, someone tell me why the upgrade would be worthwhile.
Standard Sony lens. Regarding the 4K BR player, I'm using the Philips for now. I was about to go with the Panasonic but decided to wait for the Oppo, so I can compare the two and get the better of the two. I let the Sony do all of the image processing and disabled that functionality in my Denon X7200WA. No other image processing takes place at this point.
I can see the 675 being the projector to beat moving forward for quite a while. And with HLG already being in place for 4K UHD broadcasts, with no other 4K projector even having HLG yet, the 675 is creating quite a bit of space between it and the closest competitor IMO. I'm thoroughly satisfied and content enough to not be able to justify another projector purchase for years. There would have to be major very noticeable enhancements to make me upgrade. Even my wife has been blown away at the performance of this projector and feels that this was money well spent and a worthwhile upgrade/investment. She thought I was nuts to spend $15K on a "projector". She doesn't feel that way anymore at all because now she knows that the money was spent on a "visual experience" not just a projector.
Thanks a million, saw your next post as well, after I already responded, so you can ignore. When you do figure it out for sure please do let me know. I do think it is not available for 4K based on what I have read and that is disappointing. I'm sure the motion is descent on 4K anyway, I didn't use motion flow on my Sony like I use FI on the RS600, I just didn't seem to need it.
12' throw is really short and I assume the 120" screen you have is 2.35:1. If it was 16:9 120" I don't think you could fill that size with only 12' of throw. Great throw distance and screen size for 3D and HDR, you will have the most light available with that set up. HLG is not a feature I will probably use personally as I do not watch TV , stream any programing on my projector , nor do I game. Movies only and the odd bit of sports I suppose but that is it .
Without a HDFury Integral in the chain you cannot change UHD 4K HDR to SDR, I assume you are satisfied with the HDR results. The new Oppo is also not able to deny the HDR at this point, unless you have a Lumagen Pro then you are running UHD HDR as is to the Sony. How's that working out over all? I personally find it too dark, so I prefer to change the HDR to SDR BT2020 which allows the DI to work again on the RS600. The VW675 can still use the DI while displaying HDR I believe, maybe this is why you are OK with it.
Great projector, happy you and your family are enjoying it . It's certainly future proof enough to get by the next couple of years with current movie specs, unless that changes you are set.
