I am bringing this thread back to life
because i intend to buy one.
I own a very decent and well maintained Benq W6000 projector and plan to buy the Lumagen XD only for it.
I do not mind the lack of hd audio, because i will put the XD between the A/V receiver (marantz 7011) and the projector only for ISF calibration and "enhancing" the image. Obviously i will not use the XD for a switch as well.
My questions are the following, considering i do not plan to change the projector soon:
1) Is it worth it as far as image quality is concerned? My Benq will also get a new lamp and a cleaning service from a trusty ISF calibrator, so at least in theory i am as good s it gets. I get the XD on a low price so don't take that into account.
2) Aside from the excellent ISF options, are there enough image enhancing settings too? Only interested for playback of Blu-Ray backups. I am aware of its skillset in upscaling applications. I also own a HDFury Vertex. Should it matter?
3) Is it true that the XD model with the latest updates could support 3D framepacking if no sound was processed?
Thanks in advance.
