Thank you all for the feedback, i've ordered a 30ft (AV to JVC) and a 10ft (HTPC to AV) cables.
It will be installed inside a 2" conduit, so its easily swapped in the future if needed.
With the expected EOL for the X series, the X7900 at current "bargain" prices, and the "high" prices of the 4K models, i not counting in changing the JVC for the next 5 years at least.
The HD87 still throws an amazing image, even for 4K HDR downscaled and tone mapped by madVR, it only struggles with low APL scenes due to its low native contrast.
I'm really excited and anxious to receive the X7900, with my small 103" 2.35:1 Projecta (Da-Lite) HD progressive 0.9, i should be able to close the iris a good amount, and still have a lot of brightness to spare.
I've also ordered all the Chief gear needed
- Chief RPA281
- Chief SLB281
- Chief CMA101
- Chief CMS003
It will be a pain to mount the support, we will have to go to the roof, so the mounting is installed on concrete, and not on the plasterboard ceiling.
Nevertheless, i'm counting that the Chief mount will last a lifetime, so it will be worth it
