We watch clips way into the night and had our fill of red. Really enjoyed the night. Ken's a pro and did a great job! I can't believe how good this projection looks... And he did my OLED after breakfast. All good!

I'm at 80% on my 1.0 gain Microperf... But ignorance is bliss and it looks fabulous and so much dynamic range. Sharp as a tack too! I had no idea how sharp that anamorphic lens could be on my 14.5 wide screen! Yes, it will too dim for Art, but I expect him to be inebriated enough to not tell the difference !

So, to the calibration night menu .... Sous vide filets, big reds (though we upgraded the Stag's Leap). Only sous vide will give that tenderness from top to bottom. But, the Silver Oak ('02) was pure silk! Just a good night!




Love the theatre colours, congrats on a stunning setup. Good looking steak too! My 02 Silver Oak was a bit flat, probably too many temperature changes when we did the whole house reno. Ah well, almost any red is better than an empty cellar.

Hey, thanks so much! It feels really good to be done... (for now)!!

Steak was great! But the wine really shined - oooh, I've opened up a number of flat or yellow-tinged bottles in my time. This one we lucked out on. I have 2 left... better hurry!

Much appreciate the complements. Means a lot here as so many on this particular forum have incredible theaters. I gleaned info from many here and applied to mine. Group effort!

Jeff, your theatre is totally GORGEOUS. Maybe you should change your AVS moniker from "The Bland" to "Gorgeous"!

Very much appreciated! Thanks, Steve! I know you’re doing a mega redo as well. Looks sweet! Can’t wait for your pics! Next time you come up to see Mark, let’s try again!

Question for the group: has anyone measured the running dB noise for the Sony? I’m working on sound isolation for my pj room. Currently all of my equipment is in the pj room but moving it to more isolated area- and I can’t measure the Sony by itself right now. Thanks

I'll have to dig up my SPL meter.

But I can tell you that as my equipment room is on the other side of the rear wall of the theater (behind the theater), I cannot hear a thing. I have port glass and the walls are double drywall (Green Glue) and clip / channel design. The Isolation Transformer hums at a louder volume than the PJ and I don't hear that either. Follow a similar design and there won't be any issue.

If they do something like that, I’d like to see a tiered approach - 5000, 7500, and 10000 lumen models all with newer sxrd panels that improve black floor and uniformity

They need to have a light engine separate from the projector/lens assembly in another room connected with fiber optics, I think others have done this already . By doing it this way you can run the appropriate cooling , including the necessary fan noise in another area, only bring the light to the projector with fiber optics, then size is not an impediment . Of course, I'm only referring to these large projectors of 5000 lumens and up , that said more cooling for the lower tier would not hurt either . Sony projectors run really hot compared to JVC, at least those I tested with a professional IR camera, so being more quiet is not necessarily a good thing unless running low laser settings. That said I have friends who have clocked nearly 3000 hours on laser light engines without issue , they are running on average about 60-70%, that could be why there are no visible issues . I don't think running any electronic components to the max is a good idea , excessive heat is not good, if it didn't matter, we wouldn't hear those fans screaming as they do on all electronic components.

So I had Ken calibrate my 5000 about a year ago. Can I upgrade flash firmware to the new one or should I without losing anything?

Thank you

I’m nearly certain you can update firmware without any impact on prior calibration etc. Even if Ken worked his magic in the Sony Service menu rather than in the Lumagen (I’m assuming you have a Radiance Pro in line), that should be a sticky setting that isn’t overwritten.

I’d email him just to be sure, however.
