Would the NX5 be too bright for my room?

Hi all. I am upgrading from an old Sony VPL-HW10, and I was planning on getting an NX5, but I have seen some posts that make it sound like it would be too bright in my room.

My setup is a fully light controlled room, with dark dark red walls and ceiling, but a not very dark carpet. I have a 100in diagonal Da-Lite Cinema screen, 1.3 gain. Projecting from a ceiling mount from about 14 feet, we sit at about 12 feet from the screen.

So what do people think, will I be able to lower the light output enough and still have a great image?

Thanks!

Yes, I wouldn't be worried about this at all. Also, that 1.3 gain screen is probably really only about 1.1 gain, if that. But its sort of sparkly right?

Yes, it is a bit sparkly. I am not adverse to changing the screen, but probably not for a while.
Thanks!

Good morning!

I’m using the RS2000 (NX7) sitting 10.5’ back from a Stewart StudioTek 130 (1.3 gain) screen and throwing 15’ in a very dark room. The projector is calibrated now, but I didn’t think it was overly bright before that and I didn’t have any artifacts/sparkles/hot spots. The NX5 will be a little less bright than the NX7 and I think its light output would suit your configuration well.

Best of luck with your decision.
