Im just curiois if you think one of those used with a DLP/LCD/Dila would be overkill for something like that? Are they made more for CRT? Or does anyone actually use one for their projector? Im really interested to see what improvements it might produce..

It would be overkill. The NRS (or NRS+) is built specifically for the projector you specifiy and will maximize the picture quality. Unless you have a digital projector that can do 1080P. you would be spending an extra $20 or $21K and getting nothing for it.

The 3000 and 5000 were designed for CRT front projectors--they will work with digital projectors, but as noted, the NR is far and away a better deal for digitals (and I would argue a better picture, given the full component pathway fix in the NR). I owned a 5000 and sold it--I use an HTPC now for DVDs and just watch 1080i/60 as 1080i/60 with my CRT front projector.


HB: there is only one *digital* projector which can "do" 1080p, and that's the JVC QX1G...but it doesn't input 1080p/60, which is what the 5000 outputs (it "only" can handle 1080p/24, 1080sf/24, 1080p/30 and 1080i/60). There are a number of 9" CRT projectors (e.g., G90, 9500, Runco 1200, etc.) that can handle 1080p/60.

For most of what you want to do there is esentially no difference in capabilities between the 3000/5000 and the NRS.


The only expection is if your projector can handle a 1080p input. In which case you could use the 5000 to do 1080i to 1080p conversion which has 3:2 pulldown detection which would give you a true progressive output from your 1080i sources.


To see the difference however your projector would have to be able to make use of the 1080p and have enough vertical resolution for their to be a noticeable difference. A d-ila with an anamorphic lens MIGHT be worth the effort if you have the money for the 5000.


Good luck,
