I don’t know. But I assume JVC is using same criteria from NX to NZ lines. Still, projector life isn’t solely about native contrast, so I’m looking forward to real reviews. But it makes me a bit anxious that it’s not a simple like to like upgrade from 5/7/9 to 5z/7z/9z. They seem to be playing naming games to intentionally confuse the customer by shifting naming from 5/7/9 to 7/8/9. TBD, pending reviews.
It’s been a “year or so of patience” for the past five years. It looks like it’s going to be another 3 to 5 years to get this quality projector for $5,000 MSRP.I'm one of those people but I'm also capping what I'm willing to pay at about 5K. Maybe I'm being unrealistic but this announcement suggests a year or so of patience might allow that to happen due to typical tech trickle down.
