This Friday I'll be facing off my LP350 with another projector. This time it's the Sanyo XP21N.


Look for my report after the weekend.

Arrow, just out of curiousity, 1)what are your plans for the XP21N if by some fluke it doesn't blow the LP-350 out of the water? and 2)what other projectors have you shot out against the LP-350 and what became of them after they didn't measure up?

If possible, check it with a DTC100 with the appropriate timing using an RGB input and see if it is Panamorphable in that mode.

Dan:


I have heard some good things about line conditioners (and some bad things as well). Thus, I'll be interested to hear more about your findings!

I will be getting my Sanyo XP21N hopefully on Monday. I still have my LP350 for a few more days before the RMA runs out so I will try and submit a comparison between the two.

Les,


I forgot to ask if you have or plan to get a deinterlacer/scaler since all the posts comparing the XP21N and the LP350 indicated that the Sanyo had an inferior scaler.


I am considering the Quadscan but will need some time for the wife to get over the upgrade from the LP350 to the XP21N.

Berway,


The Sanyo is a rental. So I own it for 3 days and then it goes back.


The only other projector I've faced off with so far is the LT150.

Sounds great!

I compared the same two units, unforunately a week apart.

I would be really interested to hear of the Sanyo does not DESTROY the Infocus in your opinion, as it did in my comparison.

I think you will really like it.


Incidentally I have begun experimenting with some power regeneration/conditioning devices I have found that were used in lab applications. They put out a clean sine wave 115V, 60Hz, and holy [email protected])#$%* if it doesn;t really improve the picture!


Blacks, colors are better, images are smoother, screen door is less noticable (how the heck is this going on????), the image is generally about 10% brighter too!


Neat stuff. I am trying to do more extensive testing before I realase info on the name ofthe product, etc.

I am also trying to buy a surplus quantity in bulk, but these things weigh 70 lbs each and are about the size of a big amp.

Peter, I'll be using my HTPC (same one as in the LT150 trials).


Ken, I don't have access to a DTC-100 but own the Dish6000 and will be checking to see if it's panamorphable through RGB.


Dan, lookin forward to it. Will also have a friend's pair of eyes to keep me honest.

Les,


If its Panamorphable with the Dish 6000, that's close enough. I don't know enough about the 6000, I don't know if it has RGB or component out or both.

phussary, I thought I'd pass this on. I tried the QuadScan Pro with my XP21N and I didn't notice any improvement. I ended up returning it. That said, my comments should be taken in context. I bought the QuadScan with the specific intention/hope that it would improve the Satellite TV signal on sports broadcasts. I'm using S-Video outputs from my receiver; it doesn't have component outs...there's limited HD in Canada. There is a review, elsewhere on the net, of the QuadScan which says that the improvements the scalar provides are most noticeable via a component input.

Maybe that should not come as a surprise.
