I will try to do a side by side comparison between these two projectors to check it out
I'm not sure I have understood your last sentence, but if it is a compliment, thanks
Oh yes, it was definitely a compliment. I mean, you have that single chip design. Add to that 8.3 million pixels. Add to that the great glass lens and the content will still pop. I'm actively posting on this because I have this projector on my radar.
I had the predecessor, the HT9050, but it didn't have HDR and didn't look as good as your pictures are showing. But if your HT9060 can generate blacks as convincing as the LS-5, I'm sold!
So those images you posted are off of a negative gain screen/gray screen?

Usually screen shots make the black level appear much better than it really is?
Good point. I measured around 2,300:1 native on my LS-5 and around 8,000:1 dynamic. The LS-5 is spec'd at 3,000:1 native and 15,000:1 dynamic contrast, but it's not a light cannon, putting out around 1050 lumens.
Anyway, I've been very interested in the HT9060 for its wide native color abilities and its much lower risk of exhibiting RBE. I'm wondering if the HT9060, with its brighter top end, can generate convincing blacks. While native contrast is similar to the HT9050, the HT9060 is now supposed to have between 4,000 and 5,000:1 dynamic contrast to help with lower APL material.
