that's crazy woofer ! is this your 2nd one dead or something ? or is it 2 out of what is it 3 in the country we likely have now ? at what point does JVC realise that they have to do something like testing and verifying each one in the country. use a decent courier service and double boxing and such !

Is it correct to assume the DI on the new models is not as aggressive as the e-shift ones?
I love Auto 1 on my RS440 which gives very deep blacks and no visible pumping, i run my iris at -8 / low lamp for both SDR and HDR tone mapped with MadVr.
If that is correct so the n5 and n7 will have worth dynamic contrast than rs440 /rs540 .

I have a close friend who is considering getting a NX7 or NX5 and he has a very small room 12x12 feet with a 106 screen. What is the minimum distance he would need? In the past this friend had both JVC & Sony projectors and he was able to fill the screen. I have read that the 4K panels require a slightly longer throw and was wondering it the new models would work in his room?
I have checked different projector calculators and get slightly different results.

Check post #2 of this thread for the best out of box picture modes for HDR and SDR, https://www.avsforum.com/forum/24-di...l#post57334704 .

I took quick out of the box measurements on these and they tracked well, I dropped the brightness to -1 or -2 on the SDR one using a brightness pattern. Waiting until I get above 50 hours (may be now actually) before I start to think about calibrating anything.

Nice write up! This mirrors my thoughts too. I saw the nx5 and nx9 in the same room and the differences were too small to justify the price differences of the nx7 or the nx9,Of course the salesmen on here don’t want people to hear that.

“Do not like to say this, but hdr movies look more or less the same on my own nx9, but also have not checked this deep with side by side test. There are some small differences, but perhaps not big enough difference according to the price differences.”

Thanks for the review, curious on your lag test. 38ms at 1080p and 4K. Did you use the new Leo Bodner 4k tester for the 4K measurement? It is weird how the measurements are the same for 4k vs 1080p when there is no scaling involved at 4k. You are the second person I have seen report it, just curious how the 4k test is being done, thanks!

It's not unusual if the scaler is a simple line scaler like you find in something like the HDFury linker. They only delay the video signal by a line or two of pixels, which is negligible.

Only a more advance scaler using more than one frame, or analysing a single entire frame, would need to receive the whole image or several images before starting to output it. That is where the delay comes in.

There have been some comments on the upscaling not being that great, which would be explained by this.

There is an owner's manual available on-line at JVC's website, with throw distances, see page 82. You will have to interpolate for 106" and allow for rear wall clearance and + or - 5% variation between projectors.

As stated you should check the manual but roughly speaking I think you'll need about 11' in front of the lens or about 13' from the screen to the back wall. I don't think you can quite fill a 106" screen in a 12' room, especially with the caveat that the published throw spec is only guaranteed to be close - +/- 5%.

Very good review. I'd like to get your thoughts on how the N5 performed versus your N9 in a bit more depth when you get the time.

Thanks, It will be very close. I will have to speak to him. He could always use an inch of black velvet tape and reduce the screen size by a few inches if projector will not fill 106 inches. I will ask him if he has another option to cut the back wall leaving enough room for airflow to gain a few inches.

Another possibility is if he has a closet on the opposite wall to place the projector in there, that should give him an extra 2'. This is what I am doing in a similar sized room to get a 115" screen.

No luck with a closet but I suggested that he could have the sheet rock could around the projector. The problem it is a rear wall. In the past I know he owned several other JVC projectors with no problem.
Probably the best way would be to reduce the screen size 1 inch on each side if things don't work out. I know someone who did that using black velvet tape.

If you want to be real creative you could add a tray ceiling in the opposite room and put the projector in there

Do I have to? hehe

I just say it like this. The NX9 has a better black floor. So contrast. Also some better corner sharpness, and if very accurate some in the middle.
But for shore not as far from as I hoped.

I got the same number in 4K.

Here how it works.
You connect it to the source.
You hold it up to a square as seen on picture and you see the reading on screen.

Thanks, I was more wondering are you using their newest 4K meter that was released a few months ago?

Smile NX7 Short Review

- This is my first projector.
- My room is 18' X 12' and about 95% light controlled.
- Screen = 135" 2.35:1 Severtson Cinema white micro perf.
- Sitting 9' from screen.
- Sources are Panasonic DP-UB820, Nvidia Shield, Shaw Direct 1081i Satellite, XBOX One X.
- All going through a Denon AVR-X8500H.
- 3D glasses = High-Shock RF Pro High Diamond imported from Germany.

Everything being new I'm finding myself slowly fine tuning both sound and picture. Picture out of the box was already very good. Watched two 4K movies and was blown away by the clarity. Even 1080i satallite looks really good in 16:9. I saw the end of The Green Mile yesterday and when Michael Clarke Duncan is strapped into the electric chair you could see every little drop of sweat and water running down his face. Netflix and youtube via the Shield are great too.

Last night I finally got around to trying the 3D. My glasses are supposed to be specifically designed for JVC projectors however with the polarity changes made to the latest generation of projectors I was worried they would be dark. I'm glad to say that with my setup there is only about a 5-10% difference in brightness when rotating the glasses 90 degrees so I won't be going through the hassle of exchanging and returning them to Germany.

All in all, I could not be happier with the projector. It's picture is very close to my Panasonic VT25 plasma and the 3D is even better. I would recommend it without hesitation.

No the old one I think, borrowed it just for some tests. Don't have it anymore.

It has to be purchased by March 31, but you have until April 30 to send in the rebate form. And my guess would be if they can't meet pre-order demand by then, they'll extend the free bulb offer. They risk losing pre-orders if they don't, including mine.

Let’s talk lens motor noise. Anyone else think the lens motor noise is louder than previous models? 590R to NX5 lens memory etc the new motor is more “grindy/crunchy” than previous. Wondering if it’s something I should worry about or if it’s normal.

Same experience coming from 590R to RS1000. That tells me it’s normal, new mechanism must be noiser. Not a big deal to me as it’s not something happening during movie. DI is quiet and no e-shift noise is what matters.
