I'll be getting mine tomorrow. The unit arrived in Chicago Christmas eve per UPS. The worst part of this season living in a cold climate, is not being able to power it on until the internal temp. equalizes to the house (~4-6 hours).

you beat me by a day... I have to wait until friday. curious to hear what you guys think.... the original RS55 club members should all be reporting in...

You gonna have all those projectors? You have to start a new 4K shoot out thread, so we won't be asking you about different comparisons every hour.

what I might do is clear the 1st & 2 post of the current thread that has the older info and start with new info on the current models. so the first page would have all the info on the comparisons, etc.


I didn't think I would still have my RS55 by now, but glad I still have it. it will be interesting to have a 55 / 57 mini-shootout. I have a brand new lamp I'll use on the 55 so we have an even baseline.


I know what e-shift 2 looks like, so i'm curious to see 1 vs. 3.

I'm glad you are going to do all that; I feel less pressure to do so now



(I have a new lamp that I could put in my RS55 as well, but I'm giving it to my friend with my RS55 once I'm done some comparisons with the RS57).

I'm supposed to have mine Friday too.

I guess it will be. That's gonna be one extra long thread if everything gets updated every year. This forum is lucky to have your contributions throughout the year

hehe…



So I haven't been following the shootout threads Jas… what do you own now and will be using for comparison (RS55, 57 & Sony 1K… or do you own more)?



Rich - Could I be your BFF??
What a nice "gift" for your buddy!!


My 57 is out for delivery so if all holds with my UPS driver schedule I expect the box about 2-3pm CST.

kevin, I have the 55, Planar 8130, Sharp 30K and Sony 1000. The 600 belongs to Mike @ AVS and the 57 is not mine, but will get a chance to check it out for a few days.


you know the 55 so well so i'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the 57. my main interest would be to find an excellent OOTB baseline (D65/2.2/R709 + good sat tracking) and see how e-shift 3 looks vs 1.


There's a few scenes in oblivion that should give the new iris a workout. I was told to check out the original spiderman movie around the 29:00 mark for iris activity.



edit: @ cischico - wow looks like a fun weekend!!!

Jason also has my VW600ES, so he has a whole smorgasbord of projectors to compare. I think Jason may have to add onto the house just for projector storage purposes.

Come to papa!


And this one too for comparisons sake


That's awesome.


Except that what we want on an RS57's owner thread is "wow my JVC looks amazing..."


...we don't need no "JVC looks good, not as good as the Sony" on this thread!



(Which is what I'd expect from such a comparison).

Wow… I'm jealous (but also genuinely happy for you especially based on our long history!). I will definitely be doing that tomorrow and will report back the best CP's although everything I hear and based on past let downs, I'm not expecting anything but undersaturation… But… maybe we'll get a 2nd Xmas gift this year!



To 2nd Blee's sentiments… I'm very much looking forward to your opinions as well (especially hoping 3D has improved to acceptable levels)!


Merry Xmas bud!




Update…. Doorbell (per wife)… it's HERE!! SaWEET!!

Maybe not the first AVSr this time but close enough (Japan doesn't count since Cischico drove down the street to pick his up!
)


Time to crack it open and start the necessary warming process!!





Beat ya Rich!

Well maybe this bodes well for me actually getting my projector by tomorrow.


( LOL who am I kidding? I have easily the most notoriously bad luck with electronics. Something will go wrong with this purchase is just a question of what.)
