Thanks for all the helpful comments. In looking at the specs for the new projectors, I noticed that they are quite large, especially in terms of width. The width of the RS-1000, for example, is about 19 1/2 inches, which is too wide for the cabinet where my RS-1 is currently located. So I'd probably have to move the projector to the top of the cabinet, which raises it up about 17" and will defeat quite a bit of the gain of the High Power screen. So that should alleviate any theoretical possibility that it would be "too much" with a projector putting out 1800 lumens or whatever.
I'm probably going to have to get the projector once they become widely available, and experiment with the height of the projector, possibly replacing the cabinet, etc. I suppose the other option is to get one of last year's JVC models, which are a bit smaller in width and would fit in my cabinet, but I'm not sure they'll still be around when I get around to making a purchase.
Again, thanks for the help. You guys have set my mind at ease. Replacing my current screen would be a PITA.
