Well, here's my $0.02 again. The NX-5 (returned due to Blue lines) is no slouch, however, the NX-7 (upgrade from NX-5) is next level up, DTM is a champion. I run the projector on low lamp (w/ DCR), based on my short throw of 1.4.1, which works out well for me. I got a great deal because of the NX-5 return and the inconvenience, on the NX-7/DCR lens. This was one of the best combos in my ~25 yr history with HT. Did I want to spend that much $$$? No sir, but I have no regrets, as sometimes I may, because of financial compromise.
Next, the Stewart 130 G4 2:40, but I need to complete a Home project, therefore, I may have to delay this purchase, unfortunately. If you can afford the JVC NX-7, go for it, IMHO, the diminishing returns are with the JVC NX-9, which is twice the cost of the NX-7. Don't get it twisted, if I could have afforded the NX-9, I probably would have done it, but I've heard that upgrade is incremental. Hope this helps someone in their quest.
Peace and blessings,
