A simple question for an advice: which is better a JVC RS56 or 57?

Hi everyone I take the liberty to post this message because I was looking for an advice about which projector is better between the two JVC RS56/X75 and RS57/X700. Every opinion is more than welcome, thank you

RS57 has more contrast, DI, and 4k inputs and an upgraded version.

The 57/700 in 2013 was the first year with the autoiris. As the years go by certain other elements are refined, bulb life, brightness while maintaining contrast, CMS, convergence correction, and auto cal.

I like the first gen DI on the RS57, it clamps way down in very low APL scenes. The DI can go several clicks past the lowest manual setting for a very convincing black floor in dark scenes.

Thank you everyone. I was looking for a 56 but I may have found a 57. I am negotiating the price. Which would it be a reasonable price according to your opinions? Just to have an idea about how much I should relate to. Thank you very much!

Maybe $700-800. I wouldn't go over because you can find some rs400 or rs500 for $1200-1500 which are much better.

Exactly, are the RS400/500 so much better and better deals for $1200-1500? The 57 I am negotiating would be $900 shipped or a little more, new bulb included.

Autocal was improved, DI was better, much brighter, much better 3D, handles HDR and 4k significantly better. It basically upgraded everything. The rs500 is a great projector and for many is all needed for an uhd projector.

Awesome thanks. From there you would look for the top tier models, rs600/x950, for handpicked panels correct? Also, the x750/rs500 has dual irises? where with the x550 you can only choose manual or auto and it's the single iris at the lens. With the x750 you could use manual -8 and reduce the light hitting the panels, then the auto iris reduces light through the lens?

Curious have you seen 1% adl measurements with the auto iris? I can't seem to find any(except for the nx9), maybe they're buried in the forums here somewhere. 1% native is usually around 10k. Maybe 50% boost so around 15k at 1%?

The rs6x0 series are the best to get but the rs5x0 are great as well. You can reduce the aperture from 0 to -15 then apply the DI to all JVC models that has the DI. When I had the RS4910 and rs400 I used them the same even though they had the single iris.

You can probably find more measurements in the autocal section. Manni did a phenomenal job with that thread and measurements.

There a few forum members who still own the eshift series because of the amazing contrast. They choose them over the native 4k models. I went from a RS520 to a RS2000/N7. The eshift models are great and I'm looking for an RS5x0 or rs6x0 series to add to my setup. I have a RS2000/N7, Runco Q750, and DPI 260HB currently. Looking to replace my DPI 260HB with the eshift model when I find a steal of a price 😁

the RS600's are still some of the best native contrast JVC's today. full HDMI bandwidth + P3 support, excellent combo with MadVR !!

The RS500 is really where JVC took off IMO. From the previous model it added another 500-600 lumens and the bulbs started lasting considerably longer. They added the lumens without losing any contrast or black floor. It was a monumental increase in picture quality. If you can find an RS500 for $1200-1500 I'd snatch that sucker up. You won't be sorry.

Video: JVC RS4500 135" ST130 G4 screen in batcave, htpc nvidia 1080ti madVR.
Audio: Anthem mrx720 running 7.1.4, McIntosh MC-303, MC-152, B&W 802d3 LR, B&W HTM1D3 center, B&W 805d3 surround, B&W 702S2 rear, B&W 706s2 x 4 shelf mounted for atmos, Infinite Baffle Subs 4x15 fi audio running on behringer ep4000 + 2x12 fi audio mounted in main chair firing into back.

I seen some go for that price a few times. I was too slow to act on them.

I may be faster but I promise you I have never seen a 600 for less than $2000! Thank you all. The message is clear. Now if you see something and you feel generous then let me know!
