    2019 projector releases ?

    Those are the prices that have been set in the USA.. our dollar is 72 cents so I would not be expecting those sort of prices...

    I have asked for you. Along with the 2 interested parties in ex demo Z1's. Will be in touch.
  3. Hi mate, well not really.. I guess they are used by some.. but keep in mind the projector when not in use will be in a box in the roof where it's pretty hot and dusty most of the time. I would simply use a projector mount and hang it from the ceiling, unless it absoltely has to vanish when not being used? Nah nothing on the new series at this point, they're tight lipped until all the old stock is sold off... Makes it harder than other years as we're going from 2K e-shift machines to native 4K, nobody's going to want the 'old ones' unless they know better like many of us on here do.. with the right price point.

    Well that would be interesting, particularly if contrast was more important to the user than pixels. So the N5 will be higher priced than X7900 but will have about a third of the native contrast, but native 4K, same sort of brightness, new glass optics which wont mean much if the quality of the glass is ordinary.

    The yanks might keep 2 of the 3 models, Australia might only do 1 of them, the 7900 at this stage.. Things change so let's wait and see.

    Ahh you're right I missed a model there. So now it's all relative to the dollar pretty much, why should we get them at the same price anyway? So the yanks dropped the 9900 down 2 grand and the 7900/540 down 2K also. Buying power plus dollar value = lower retail pricing.

    The X7900 will continue alongside these new models fyi. The new models will not be released, same for pricing until all current stock is sold which is about 60 units across all models. It might be a few months before we see them... The 9900/RS620 in the US is $9999... in Australia it's $10,598.. that would mean our dollar is 94 cents US.. Hardly gouged at all. If they were relative to dollar values the 9900 should be $13999 but its not. The 7900/RS520 was $7999 in the US but is now $6999US and $8499 RRP here..

    Yes same for those darbee units, too much it looks ridiculous, tame it down it works well.

    Both Sony and JVC pricing in Australia have been spectacularly good in comparison to the USD. Even the Sony 760 is about 4K cheaper than American pricing.. unhead of. Hopefully the new JVCs will be in line with current prices, we'll get 'group buy' thing going when I know more. Should be a good year 2019 for PJ's as sounds like Sony has improved also. Be interesting to see what Epson end up doing, more of the same for the 9400 with some tweaks but any native 4K to replace the LS series?
  11. ah you beat me to it, I was about to message you about this sub!
  12. You could also call Peter at JVC head office and let him know how crap the service centre is since they haven't even looked at it. They've had a tough time with some of them, some of them rarely see these machines so they have no idea, others see them and the techs know what's what.

    2019 projector releases ?

    Yes but it would likely cost more in the end than a stand alone calibration anyway so don't see it happening nor do I see the problem. JVC's for example are spectacular out of the box anyway, need bugger all tweaking.

    The lens assembly in the Z1 would be big $$ to produce. There are literally a handful of manufacturers in the world that can do large optics like this, at those high tolerances.. so they have a monopoly on that niche market. And yeah I wonder about the CR too if they go native 4K. If it effects contrast, JVC's holy grail, then that's bad news.
