Got a friend who is in the market for a projector, have now crossed the NX9 OFF the list ....the LK990 sounds very interesting.
very curious myself to see how it performs..
Make sure to try to load my settings for HDR. I highly doubt, like other brands of projectors, that the stock HDR mode will be any good at all really. I hope my settings translate well to the LK990, but you never know. They didn’t from the Epson LS10000 to the LS10500. It required an entire rework.
There’s also some color filter options I’ve discovered now and am in the process of testing. Initial impressions are very good!

I'm not sure what you actually mean when you say "full BT2020/DCI-P3 color gamut" when it doesn't even reach P3. Can you explain a bit more?
The green 50% primary you're showing there is around half the luminance it should be given the white luminance, making it around 13dE2000 out compared to the reference white level. Even discounting the lack of colour luminance it is still over 3 dE2000 out, well over any visibility thresholds.
If you looked at this in 3D rather than through the Calman haze you'd see what was actually going on here and I think realise it is pretty far from "full".
As I said, this was a really quick test and rough calibration I did the other night. I haven’t even spent any real time at all with it. I didn’t even adjust the individual color brightnesses. I wanted to just see how far the saturation could go. It was a simple test of some filters I acquired.
I spent no time whatsoever getting all the ducks in a row yet. I have a Lumagen Radiance Pro here now and intent to do more in depth tweaking when I finally get the chance.
What I mean is “P3 in a BT2020 container “, as it is on UHD Blu-rays.
I also said when I put in a 100% amplitude, 100% saturation BT2020 color patterns they reached the full P3 gamut points.
THIS is exactly why I didn’t want to say anything yet. I just love all the “experts” here with this model, who’ve never even seen one yet. If you haven’t, you don’t have a clue. Ask
I guess I’ll just keep it all to myself from now on and enjoy it all for myself. It’s time to retire and enjoy Hawaii. Have fun with your drooping and degrading, misaligned, dim, long warmup DiLA, SXRD, LCoS, LCD based projectors.
