    Sony's 2022-23 Native 4K HDR Laser Projector line-up

    I'm at the onset of my "masking" project so who knows what I'll actually end up with. For now, however, I'm thinking I can simplify it by using lens presets to move the 2.35 image up to the top border, thus eliminating one of the black bars without the need for upper masking. That would just...

    Sony's 2022-23 Native 4K HDR Laser Projector line-up

    Right. We're pretty much in agreement there. My question had more to do with why they've decided to retain it in higher cost models. Not true (in my case anyway). I use mine almost daily to eliminate the top black bar when viewing 2.35:1 content on my 1.78:1 screen. It's not as good as a...

    It appears so although I simply cannot understand why.

    It definitely is. The 5000 ES weighs in at 28 lbs. The 6000 and 7000 are 31 lbs. At this point in my life all major purchases I make will need to be the last of their kind as I am essentially retired. This is an important lesson I learned on my speaker journey. Had I just purchased the...

    I also felt the JVC seemed poorly calibrated compared to the Sony but didn't attribute it to any nefarious intent as they repeatedly lauded both projectors as top in class. The weight of the JVC is my main concern. Support would also be a concern for both of these. Honestly, I really wish...

    Here's a great head-to-head of the JVC NZ7 (RS2100) and the new Sony 6000ES. The Sony 5000 is a no-go for me as I absolutely need my motorized lens.

    It would have to in order to beat out the LS12000 in my opinion. Now the wait begins for some sort of shootout between the two but I also suspect JVC is listening.

    Sony's 2022-23 Native 4K HDR Laser Projector line-up

    Well, like @DaveF I'm excited to see this announcement for multiple reasons but somewhat bummed that the base model lacks a motorized lens and appears to also lack 3D support if I'm reading the spec sheet right. I use my motorized lens almost daily for fine adjustments. The 6000 is absolutely...
