In the middle of a media build and I been waiting to see if there are any updates on any new projectors from JVC/Epson/Sony etc.. I have seen the Sonly 285 in action on a Slate Screen Innovation screen, an it was pretty remarkable on how good it looked. It also just dropped in price significantly, so I might be looking at this unit, just waiting to see if anything else might pop up at CEDIA that looks great.

Dynaudio Confidence C2 Platinums (Mocca), Dynaudio Contour 20's (Grey Oak) KEF LS50 (Black), Magnepan 1.7i, Belles VT-01/MB-200s, NAD M10, Hegel, Musical Fidelity and various other good brands.. HT system: Dynaudio SCX Center, Dynaudio In-Walls for Surrounds and Sony VPL-295ES possibly a new Monitor in the future.

Sounds great Mike, I hope you have a good time and get to see all the new products. I'll be looking to purchase a projector in a few months and my needs are unique as I have different screens that target different types of viewing. OLED for movies(perfect black), QLED for gaming(6MS input delay and FreeSync) and a PJ for sheer size.

@Ruined You seem to really embrace DLP PJs, and I used to own an Infocus 720p PJ years ago. I didn't really have an issue with RBE unless I turned my head really fast. The Optoma UHZ65 has caught my eye and if you are also going to CEDIA, could you tell of us any products that might be able to match that 3000 lumens.

Yes i am resident dlp fan

Under 10k your best options are the uhz65 and the soon to be announced ht9060, with the latter better for dark home theaters with screens 140" and under. The BenQ is only rated 2200 lumens but since it uses high lumen density rod on the green led to focus etendue better on dmd it is typical of much higher brightness than typical LED. When both are calibrated the UHZ65 falls in the 1600-2000 range depending how you calibrate it, while the benq falls in the ~1500 range (~1250 eco w/ dimming). So the lumens difference actually isnt as large as the specs indicate, about 500 less on benq if you want to use dynamic black dimming.

The uhz65 is much cheaper, though with the benq you get a better lens, better chassis, much more lens shift, 98% p3 coverage insteqd of 87%, and less rbe on the ht9060 with its fast cycling leds vs
uhz65's 2x color wheel. Plus ht9060 supports 3d while uhz65 doesn't.

So for dlp camp if you can afford the ht9060 its essentially the only 4k uhd solid state projector under $10k that has all the blu ray 4k (and 3d 1080p) features with a still quite bright output if not as bright as the uhz65. Seems it will be great for a dark home theater room, but we won't have all the details until its released and tested.tested

On the other hand the uhz65 is a proven great value for its price and can get brighter for rooms with ambient light or bigger screens. Still a great picture even if color, lens, build, and features dont match the ht9060.

Ya, CEDIA is here but we have a long wait for product and an even longer wait for reviews......
