There are some good deals in that area. Was thinking of picking up a 540U for a different setup......However a LG HU85L 4K Ultra Short Throw would work even better, choices......

From what I've read, with a totally blacked out room (which I plan to do), I thought a gain closer to 1.0 was more adequate? Am I wrong on that? Why do you have 1.25 gain instead of something closer to 1.0? Is it because you leave some of the theater ambient lights on sometimes?

Great question! No, I have a blacked out room and no light of any kind. I previously had a 1.0 gain screen and I thought it was good / adequate as well. However, once I had over 500 hours on my projector lamp, things started to get a bit dim and HDR effects weren't as impressive anymore. The Cima changed that and really brought back the pop in HDR again!

Need to know more info? If projector is mounted on short side of throw range and screen is small, then ST100 could be the right screen to use. If screen is larger, then ST100 might not be the screen to use. Need to know:

Room fully blacked out?
Throw distance available?
Screen size?
Screen aspect ratio?
AT or solid?
Fixed or electric?
And of course budget?

I'm building a new house, so nothing is completed yet, but it has a dedicated media room with no windows. Blueprints say 16ft 9.5in x 12ft 8in are the specs. I'm eyeing the DLA-RS1000, but I don't have anything yet. House won't be done till probably Aug or Sept this year. Maybe JVC will announce something new by then?!?

Room fully blacked out? Yes, no windows, and I plan to paint all walls and ceiling black. The carpet is medium-light grey, but I plan to get a big dark gray or black throw rug or something for the large front area of the room by the screen.

Throw distance available? I'm new at this, but I think you're wondering if the projector is capable of zooming out wide-angle for 2.35:1 or something? I put in some measurements on the calculators, and it looks like the JVC DLA-RS1000 will be ok.

Screen size? I'm looking at 125" screen, 2.35:1 ratio, sitting around 11 or 12 feet from screen.

Screen aspect ratio? 2.35:1

AT or solid? Solid screen

Fixed or electric? Fixed

And of course budget? I'm into bang for buck, because I've gotta buy a lot of stuff, like receiver, speakers, subwoofer, screen, Blu-Ray player (I'm eyeing the panasonic ub820), and projector, etc.... so it's a lot of $$$ up front. If there's some reason to upgrade to something high end, I'll consider it if it's a major benefit. I've read Jeff's (UMR) screens report, and also chatted with him a bit about it, and he thought it made sense in his opinion for me to go with the CineWhite screen from Elite (1.1 gain), and use the extra savings to upgrade from what I was eyeing before (Epson 5050UB or 6050UB) and go with something nicer like the JVC DLA-RS1000.

You want to be toward the short end of the throw range, when zoomed for the scope image on your screen. While your setup will work with a cheaper 1.0 gain screen, you would be better off with a 1.3 gain screen. Though there are not many true 1.3 gain screens out there.

Hi, I have my 695ES connected to Marantz SR 6014 via a Binary balun (B-660-series-4k-hdr-hdbaset-extender-with-ir---rs-232-b-660-ext-444). My primary source is Apple TV 4K.

My installer uses Elan to automate the recessed screen and projector lift, and switch sources (Apple TV, local HDMI input and Sonos). When he connected the IR input to Sony 695ES, the projector stopped recognizing the remote commands. To change settings, I have to disconnect the IR in and then the projector stars recognizing remote commands.

Has anyone had this issue and knows a solution? Thanks!

If you are using the IR input, all signals have to go through the IR input. You can't use the Sony remote and IR receiver on the projector. If you are wanting to use the Sony remote on the IR receiver, then rather than use IR input, use an IR emitter on the back of the projector.
