Happy Friday to all!!!
I did have those projectors in a light controlled room and now have the HT9060, but here, it depends on what is most important to Solarium. Just know that the 9060 will have about five times the contrast of the older HT9050, with the former's dynamic dimming, and mine does not have that greenish cast the 9050 I had h
ad. The HT9060's lens is truly excellent. That lens, native wide color for HDR, a calm, stable picture, especially by DLP standards, and the LED light source did it for me. It's also very quiet when putting out about 1700 calibrated lumens. However, if you're not after the convenience of LED and have a greater focus on contrast, especially black levels in lower ADL/very dark scenes, nothing in this price range will do it like JVC does.
The lens on the HT9060 is excellent, but going by my older X750, the lens on the X790 should be no slouch either. And sometimes you can even get a crazy good lens! I mean, I've had a few JVCs, including the X750, which is the middle model in two series before the 790 was released. That one's lens was good, but so-so compared to a lens in an RS4910 I've seen that blew me away its lens was so good even compared to my older X990 which was a very nice lens sample, although not as good as the crazy good lens in the RS4910. The point is they're good but it seems to me that sometimes one gets thrown in there that is shockingly good! Go figure. The X790 will have wide color for HDR with its filter also and should be able to light up a 140 inch 1 gain screen pretty well.
In all, it depends on what you want. If high contrast and deep blacks, especially down low aren't your priority, demo the 9060. Otherwise demo the X790. I would recommend you demo both if you can.
The choice is always yours and good luck!
