OK
So in going from 0.95 gain to 1.3 gain, that should take the 1200 lumens to 1642 equivalent.
Hmm, that's getting closer to the 1900 high lamp setting,

Is there some reason that JVC could not have provided a medium lamp setting on these new units? I seem to recall the RS4500 having high, medium and low but obviously a different source

FYI, Mid laser on RS4500 is about 70% of high laser. Low lamp on JVC is about 72% of high lamp. So it seems adding a low to lamps, JVC would be reducing further for low and calling Mid what its current mid is.

Remember, Sony low lamp is 55% of high. JVC low is 72% of high.

Got my RS2000 set up and just started playing with it.

Here are a couple of initial thoughts.

1) If you haven't heard this thing is big.....I mean BIG
2) Low lamp is real quiet!
3) High lamp is loud
4) You couldn't pry that color filter out of my hands! Played a little Lucy, Greatest Showman, Startrek Beyond Colors are AMAZING
5) Did not have to move convergence at all. Not even a 1/2 pixel out of alignment.
6) Bright! with my StudioTek 130 Stewart screen 120" I am throwing 19' and it is bright. When I get my DCR lens may be too bright. Oh did I mention that is with the filter in place. And yes you can hear it go into place.
7) Being my first JVC it is a little clumsy finding what you want and what you want to adjust. The manual is good but not great
8) Sync times are annoying. I am used to a lot faster lock on time
9) Sharp as a tack and I am coming from a DLP which are sharp. This is even sharper.
10) We almost bought the Sony 695 when we demoed it. But with the first few hours working with it and watching it we believe we made the right choice with the JVC
11) Tomorrow will do some QBF tests and some others.

I still believe I made the right choice getting the RS2000 and the DCR lens vs the RS3000. Will be brighter than the RS3000 alone and I think with the lens maybe even a better picture.

I share the same sentiment with my RS2000 — have put over 40 hours on it so far and it’s very impressive (coming from a rs35). My only gripe is that it’s actually too good at times. ATV 4K Streaming shows compression defects and banding but this is true on my Samsung UHD panel as well — but via Blu-ray and uhd Blu-ray the picture is amazing.

I have noticed with auto 1 or auto 2 iris enabled at certain scenes it adjust down... so i’m keeping it off.

Overall, amazing projector and worth the upgrade.

With a HDR image with white scrolling text on a black background, with little enought text so the DI engages (I tested this with the credits scroll in Venom, but it should show on anything similar) this is with auto tone mapping on, CMD off.



DI OFF: White text

DI ON: Text is brighter and has a yellow tint. Black is no darker



The gamma adjustments applied with DI brightens the image too much to the point that DI is practically useless on HDR.


Completely agree on all points. I think this also results on a blue/purple push for deep blacks while in HDR.

Also, i really noticed the yellowing of whites tonight while playing smash brothers on my switch. A lot of the menus have a lot of whites. Whenever it goes to a loading scene, the iris clamps dowbln quite a bit. Then when loading is done, there is a very noticeable yellow hue until the iris catches back up. I also boticed it affects reds as well.

I’m going to go ahead and call this feature the “yellow pump” :-D

Bang for the Buck

It advertises *double* the native contrast ratio so if you care about better blacks, it seems that is worth the $2k over the RS1000.

The RS3000, lens is going to be better. But as an RS4500 owner, I can tell you that even 7 feet away from the screen you may not notice the difference in the RS2000 to RS3000 lens.

I don't have any buyer's remorse for the RS4500. I love solid state dimming. But I feel the NX7 / RS2000 is probably the best bang for the buck.
Wow, RS4500!!! Congrats, man. Green with envy!!! That isn't even something I could justify to my wife. You must be single.

I agree the NX7 is the best bang for the buck, which is why I ordered it (though if I'm never gonna use the fixed iris, maybe the NX5 might be the better deal if blacks didn't matter). And I'm not an absolute black fanatic, but I'm starting to want the extra lumens of the RS3000 (wish it had 3000 lumens).

And before HDR I wasn't planning on an anamorphic lens, but to even attempt to display proper bright highlights I realize they're a MUST for my scope movies. With your CIW screen you probably only need a vertical compression anamorphic lens if you want maximum HDR effect. Do you have one or are you planning on one?

Edit: Whoo Who just found out it is sitting at UPS for me to pick up today....Now do people really need their tax returns done? I mean the government has enough money right? Full day but I will find a way to sneak out to get it. Good thing we own this place.
Congrats, man! I say play hooky!!!

At this point I'm getting an anamorphic lens no matter which PJ I buy, so I'm just trying to see if I need the extra lumens and blacks of the RS3000.

For me it came down to the incremental cost vs promised features. At preorder pricing the difference between them was a fair bit less than the $2k difference in MSRP. For that I looked forward to:

Higher contrast
This is the main factor for me and why I'm going with JVC to begin with. There are cheaper, brighter options out there if I didn't care about contrast or black level.

Lamp iris
In my room I'll be at minimum throw with a scope screen in a black/dark gray room and when I zoom out for 100" diagonal 16:9 SDR content like TV shows and video games I don't want to sear my retinas. I'd rather bring the brightness down to ~15fl and have great contrast/blacks.

Slightly higher lumens spec
This may end up being marketing only and not a true spec difference. As pointed out earlier, lamp-to-lamp differences can exceed 100 lumens easily so I'm not counting on it being much brighter but I do expect that at any point in the process where there *might* be a brightness difference the benefit will go to the RS2000 (see "binning" below)

Color filter
With the brightness hit there's a good chance I'll never actually use this for content but I do want to have a better sense of what perceptible difference wider gamut coverage provides so that I can make an informed decision on future purchases where this may be a factor. And there's a chance there will be a point where the tradeoff in brightness might be worth it - such as *after* I have obtained a DCR lens.

Binning(?)
There's the chance that the components shared between the RS1000/RS2000 will be binned. This is complete speculation on my part and I don't think there's any way we can ever know if it's happening, but *if* it happens, I wanted to be on the side of the spec that benefits from it.

So it came down to a handful of features that seemed potentially beneficial for an incremental increase in cost. It was higher than my original budget but not so high that I couldn't manage it and I felt I would regret not getting as much as I could possibly afford in a projector that I expect to use for years. I did not go with an RS3000 because it would have been twice again as much for few significant improvements. I do plan to get a DCR at some point down the road.
Thanks for the well reasoned response! I used to be of the opinion black blacks and super bright images weren't necessary, and I still don't, but seeing some HDR films with shadow detail AND sunlight streaming in simulating a real scene was enough to convince me a little brightness headroom is good. Your setup should be fine with an RS2000; my 156" scope ratio 1.0 gain might be too dark even WITH the RS3000!

Blacks on RS1000 are not as impressive as the RS500 I am flipping, but they aren't bad either. (I think am not as nutty for deeps blacks as most who frequent this forum). I use MadVR for movies and I am a happy camper. Not sure I could spot the difference in color gamut unless someone pointed it out in a side-by-side scenario.

Between buyers remorse and confirmation bias buying a projector sight unseen is a crap shoot anyway.
You're so right re: buyers remorse and confirmation bias (I think the latter wins out most of the time), I think there isn't a loser in the bunch assuming you can comfortably afford it.

Good point, RS2000 + anamorphic is WAY more nits than an RS3000 zoomed. But I've decided I need an A-lens with any PJ I buy based on the size of my screen, unless I find some unicorn 5000 lumen light cannon with native UHD and awesome blacks for under $20K, and even if I find one, I will have too much light spill in the letterbox portions and will need an A-lens to avoid that.

All you need is a 3d scan of the front, right?

Absolutely not. The whole premise that you can 3d scan something then just print it is a joke if you've ever tried it That tech is just nowhere near there. Instead it takes a lot of 3d modeling in something like sketchup, printing, testing, and adjusting. This assumes whatever you want to adjust can be adjusted and not have to be created again from scratch. It really requires having a unit.

Newbie question. What does an A-Lens give you? I’m getting a 130” scope screen and an N7.

Btw there’s a good review of the N7 on stereo.net

“Overall I'm blown away by this projector and my dealer and installer were too. My installer previously wanted to get a large OLED TV for his theatre, but after seeing the DLA-N7 in operation he has changed his mind”

On the yellowing, I saw the opposite effect tonight. After watching Rogone One on Friday, the family wanted to watch A New Hope tonight. As the text started scrolling up the screen it was white until the DI opened when a couple of lines got on screen and it returned to the expected yellow. I need to try it again and record it if it is repeatable.

One project at a time I still have 33 panels to make to finish my room, but have access to multiple 3d printers at work that they encourage us to use after hours for personal projects. Growth mindset etc. Would be a nice learning experience, but happy to throw $50 at it right now

@woofer do the Z1 angled fan vents fit into the grill on the NX9 you have?
Edit: nevermind I see a photo of the NX9 grills on another thread and they're not similar at all.

Video: JVC RS4500 135" screen in pure black room no light, htpc nvidia 1080ti.
Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, 2 sub arrays both infinite baffle: 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 4x12 fi audio running on 2nd ep4000.

@markmon1 SORRY!!!! Misread your question..... NO they do not fit the NX9. The Vents on the NX9 are angled and MUCH smaller..

@woofer thanks!

I'm about 4' from the RS3000 lens, though get to sit left of center as my wife takes the center spot (it's still a great spot, and I actually prefer having the left arm rest of the love seat over the right), and so the angled vent points toward me! If angling further lowered the noise of high lamp, it would be a worthy mod.

That's a completely unrelated phenomenon... when the DI is changing it does not make the needed adjustments well enough so you see a reduction in saturation until it finishes opening up. I noticed this on day one and thought it was just lag, but I now see that its not doing what it needs to at all until the DI has finished moving. This is really noticeable on text or animation.

The other issue is once the DI is in place the new adjustments have a push to yellow.

What I also see is that in HDR the adjustments are also too bright. You can easily see this my pausing and toggling DI on or off in a image with a small amount of white text on a black background

So I asked for one RS2000 to ship and if it tested ok, then they could ship another and so on. But I don’t want to be sitting on $50k worth of bad projectors, waiting for exchanges.

So good news, the first RS2000 I received seems to be in great condition. Convergence seems to be spot on out of the box. I don’t have any weird color issue along the bottom and I don’t hear any noise from the DI.

I only got to spend about an hour playing with it this evening but it seems to be a perfect sample. The image is really fantastic. I bought this as a replacement for my aging RS600 in my master bedroom which is paired with a 120” diagonal 16:9 screen.

My main theater has a Sony 5000ES on a 17’ wide screen. I setup the RS2000 temporarily in my theater to test the unit, but so far it looks to be a keeper.

The big question will be if the RS3000 is significantly better than the RS2000 for the price difference. Looking forward to comparing the 2 units.

I’m currently more inclined to keep the RS2000 as a replacement for my RS600 since it’s not my main theater, but I find myself actually watching my bedroom projector more on a daily basis than I do my theater projector. I don’t want to feel like I’m stepping down in quality from my RS600, but just from the quick viewing tonight, the RS2000 didn’t disappoint.

Spoiler!

I wonder if I could ask for some opinions....I have an RS6710 and was super excited when the 4k JVC's were announced and thought I would pick up an N7.
I've read every page of the anticipation thread and the owners thread (learnt a lot about wine and cars in the process) and cant help shake the feeling that this may not be a wise move for me.

I have almost 1500 blurays and no more than ten 4K discs - that's what I watch - i'm in the UK and while I have an amazon prime subscription, I get posterisation/banding on web content so confine myself to blurays in my cinema these days. I suspect with the price of 4K discs and probably 500+ unwatched blurays, that will be what I consume for quite sometime.

So my 6710 supposedly does 1300 lumens in high (I watch in low) and 150k:1 native. I also use a darbee darblet and love it, with judicious use it appreciably sharpens and appears to enhance contrast quite profoundly for me. The front 2/3rds of my room is black fabric (its 'fleece like' material so not velvet perfect but pretty good). My couch is black and my rug is black but the rear third or so of the room is cream coloured).

I sit about 13 feet back from a 10ft (120inch) screen (measured diagonally in scope). In 16:9 I need to measure the spread bc i have my own masking which is neither CIH, CIW - probably close to CIA and appreciate there are differing views (read them all) re whether 4k will be perceptible over eshift version 3 from there. I have less than perfect corrected vision but as I say, I can see the impact of the darbee from my seat.

I'm thinking the additional lumens of the n7 (even if i shave a bit off for 17:9) will allow me to close the aperture down on the N7 for comparable brightness to my 6710 so it wont be 150k:1 vs 80k:1 if brightness matched...but then why upgrade if I'm going to dull the image down just to match contrast? From my seating distance and with my 1080p content usage and with my darbee, and my room as it is, I have to wonder if i'm a bad candidate for an N7. Then again i think to myself, it could be years before JVC moves contrast up, afterall in 3 generations the top eshift line only moved from 150k:1 to 160k:1 (20LTD aside). Note I also have the panasonic UB9000 and a device to strip HDCP 2.2 so I can watch 4k content on my 6710 and can have tone mapping without the JVC doing it - but I have little 4k content and was hard pressed to see a difference between 4k and darbee aided 1080p on my 6710. Oh and my eshift is silent.

And thus I have been for the last 4 mths. Any thoughts would be appreciated

I feel like 13 feet from 120" is too far back to benefit from native 4K over eshifted 4K. If you feel your RS6710 is bright enough for you, I'd hold out and keep it. If you upgrade, you're going to have to basically ditch your darbee, and if you like that effect, you will miss it.

Perhaps you'd be better suited to pick up a used RS600, 620, 640 as everyone else upgrades. The brightness boost from your generation to the next one while still maintaining its contrast was really a nice upgrade.

Thx Markmon - appreciate the response. I was thinking the same thing (even if it feels less exciting). Slightly concerned I might introduce things I don't suffer from presently (eshift noise, gamma droop, whatever) and since its hard to find a 640, I wondered if I might get a 540 and be disappointed in dropping CR or poorer binned lens etc (unlikely I know). I guess one of the key questions is whether at ANY distance, a diet of 1080p blurays woud look any better on the n7 than shifters especially with darbee.

Here are a couple of initial thoughts.

1) If you haven't heard this thing is big.....I mean BIG
2) Low lamp is real quiet!
3) High lamp is loud
4) You couldn't pry that color filter out of my hands! Played a little Lucy, Greatest Showman, Startrek Beyond Colors are AMAZING
5) Did not have to move convergence at all. Not even a 1/2 pixel out of alignment.
6) Bright! with my StudioTek 130 Stewart screen 120" I am throwing 19' and it is bright. When I get my DCR lens may be too bright. Oh did I mention that is with the filter in place. And yes you can hear it go into place.
7) Being my first JVC it is a little clumsy finding what you want and what you want to adjust. The manual is good but not great
8) Sync times are annoying. I am used to a lot faster lock on time
9) Sharp as a tack and I am coming from a DLP which are sharp. This is even sharper.
10) We almost bought the Sony 695 when we demoed it. But with the first few hours working with it and watching it we believe we made the right choice with the JVC
11) Tomorrow will do some QBF tests and some others.

I still believe I made the right choice getting the RS2000 and the DCR lens vs the RS3000. Will be brighter than the RS3000 alone and I think with the lens maybe even a better picture.
What do you mean by "sync times are annoying"? Also, I was between the 695 and the NX7, so it's cool to hear what you think about the difference between the two!

Depending on setup, you can get around 30 to 35% increase in brightness on scope movies. Not all A-lens can give you this much increase.

Why would you think contrast on a 620 would be less than your 6710? The 620 is spec'd at 160,000:1 and the 6710 is 150,000:1. But what will make a bigger difference is the extra light output of the 620. That means to get the on screen brightness the same as your 6710, you will have to close down the manual iris a lot more. Each click of the iris with be an increase in native contrast. I would not be surprised if you got double the native in actual use for BD content.

Expecting my NX7 to be delivered today - it is -45 degrees outside, any precautions I should take prior to turning it on and how long should I wait before doing so?
