Joe,


I know that you're preaching plenty of lumens for plenty of punch, and I tend to agree. This is also my main concern with these dim first-generation 16:9 DLPs, especially on a Grayhawk.


What is the 21N replacement called? When? Rez? MLA? ANSI? Contrast? HDCP? Scaler? Price?

Hi NiToNi,


I assume, that the new DWIN 16:9 dlp could be the ideal solution for you. There are two different bulbs resulting in ~ 800 Lumens vs. 1500 L. .

The lack of HDCP or 5C is a concern. I thought the projector looked somewhat better on a DaLite than on a Grayhawk, so Grant's idea isn't a bad one. http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/wink.gif

Yowza! Sometimes when going from a dark scene to a bright screen, my plv60 will make me squint. With the lumens those things are putting out, you may wanna keep a welders mask handy. The black levels would be awesome!

no DVI/HDCP- Looks like you won't be getting a projector soon. If the Greyhawk is so dark at that size why not go as someone else suggested for a Da-Lite. And lastly if you find the Sharp dark then that also rules out the Seleco HT300 and the US version of the Marantz. This leaves the DWIN as a possible solution but again as DWIN, Seleco, and Marantz haven't announced a DVI/HDCP connection looks like as I said you will be waiting for a while http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/frown.gif Maybe next year after the trade shows?


Thankfully both of these issues don't effect me.

In a light-controlled room, the Sharp is never too dim for me and very pleasant to my eyes (in fact I haven't turn up the brightness on both the DVD and NRS yet). But with some ambient light, the image will degrade from OK to unwatchable depends on the amount of light. I simply try to make my curtains to block everything during daytime so that it gives same viewing pleasure all the time.


BTW, the bluish images we saw on those posted images are really from the DC, the projector is very accurate in colour. So far, all my guests comments are "film-liked", "fine and smooth details", and "wonderful colours".

Cam- My room is fully light controllable so I doubt I am going to have a problem with the light level from the Sharp when I get it. I have been using my Sony 400Q for a long time and I expect the Sharp's output to look like the Sun compared to the Sony http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

That's exactly what I was afraid of. Will only accept "degrade from fabulous to OK.

Not the point. The 400Q isn't my reference by far.

Keeping my 100" Grayhawk 16:9. Want brightness AND good black level and no hotspotting.

Yepp, I agree.

Well, there is talk about new PJs w/HDCP being announced at CES 2002 in January.

So you noticed Joe what time it was here when I posted. Well, I took your advice and went to bed after all.


The Sanyo looks fine but is not 16:9 and the PLV-60, that I have seen several times, is IMHO not good enough. Saw the DPX-1 last weekend- nice with OK blacks, but too dim and terrible rainbows. Almost had nausea after watching it for 1h.

I'll look into that one Walter http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif

Never said it was. Just explaining my position. Best of luck in your search.

Jeff,


You're right, we won't see HDTV in Europe in the foreseeable future. However, recored HD content is another matter. As far as I understand, as soon as the new D-VHS tape decks will become available and the HDCP standard is in place, Hollywood movies in HD will go on sale. This could be as early as beginning of next year. Thus, import a D-VHS player and the HD tapes, just like we are importing R1 DVDs today, and you'd be able too see HD even here in Europe http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif . I would not want to pass up on this opportunity if I were to invest in a HDTV rez PJ today, which could be the case if it lacks a HDCP interface.


Spero, have you been able to see the Sharp for yourself yet?
