Is that scope or 16:9?

If scope and using a lens, you could probably get it going, using 1.36 of the 2.02 zoom.

16:9 :blink:

projector central calculations seems to suggest it would do it ok....

Oz ... I am looking to set up a combined TV (using my 60" Kuro) and home theatre room. I want to set up a 110-120 inch 2:35:1 (motorised scope) screen using a throw distance of around 4-5 metres. I am not interested in projectors with 3D capability, so not sure whether I should wait for the new JVC X3 or X7. I have read the many positive reviews of the 550.

Do you think the 550 would fit the bill or would the X3 offer better picture for plain vanilla 2D material ?

110 to 120 will work with the mk3 lens or zooming. I cannot say much on the X3 at present as it's not here but it seems like a great machine also.

It would be around 1500 more than the 550 I have on offer though.

Would be ok as long as you're seated back far enough... 3.8metres closest, 5.23 recommended..

Current financial woes preclude it but it is oh so tempting.

Got to finish the house first.

I have been reading about the MK4 anamorphic lens ... is it correct that the 550 will deliver a full scope picture uisng the MK4 or can the 550 deliver CIH by itself. Let me know if I have this right ....

If I had a large enough lounge-room which allows me to be 5 or so metres away from the screen, I would have snapped this up!

The 550 will deliver CIH by zooming, as will most projectors. Dont think any projectors can deliver native 21.9 at this stage.

With all due respect Dan what does that mean? Just fit a screen (whether scope or 16.9) that will give the optimum picture from whatever distance you sit at.

Ok got that ... now some more basic questions:

Would this need for zooming be detected automatically or would you have to re-set the zoom for 2.35:1 material ?

What would the benefit of attaching the MK4 in front of the 550 lens ?

I don't know much about Projectors, unfortunately. However, with my seating position only approximately 4 metres away from where a Projector Screen would be, I assume the screen size would be too overkill for a set-up like mine.

You assume wrong grasshopper, very wrong. 4M from a 130-140 inch scope screen IS mint, awesome, knock your socks off immersion!

4 metres (or thereabouts) is where 80% of people sit using a projector... I sit at 4 metres, sometimes closer to my 135 scope screen... no issues at all.

Some projectors can automatically detect it but dont think the 550 does, you would need to set it each time you switch between the formats.

The mk4 allows for a shorter throw ratio and gives the benefit of a brighter picture and full use of all availiable pixels as none are wasted on producing black bars.

Think i have this info right, Mark Techer or Richard Ward from OZTS are the gurus on this stuff and better able to explain the pros and cons of each method than me, hopefully they will chime in once they see this.

With a 550 here are the options:

1. 16:9 screen, set and forget, black bars top and bottom for all cinemascope movies (2.35 and 2.40:1) Image width stays the same for all movie aspect ratios.

2. Scope screen and zoom. The JVC does not have a memory but instead you would use the motorised zoom (550 has motorised focus, zoom and lens shift)

3. Scope screen and lens. 4.5 metres is where the projectors lens needs to be for a 120 inch cinemascope screen (or further back if possible).

OPTIONS FOR SCOPE with LENS;

3.1: Leave lens in place if ceiling mounted and scale with projector. Upside, set and forget. Downside, lose 25% of your resolution for all 16:9 footage.

3.2: If tower mounting and you can get to the lens easy enough, I would recommend moving it in and out as required, takes all of 30 seconds to re align.

3.3: Use something motorised like a cineslide to move lens in and out of the lightpath. Downside, price. Upside, utilize all the projectors resolution as apposed to leaving lens in place.

Hope that helps.

I'm about 3.8 metres from a 130" 16:9 screen, and it's bloody awesome.

      Extra Info: 
       
      Pure Class A  2x35 Watt PSET (Parallel Set) which is used in the very high end tube
      amplifiers like Aries Cerat $30K USD. This gives you uncompromising power to run in pure class A almost any 89+ db speakers.  Lack of power is Achilles weak spot of most tube amplifiers and I believe PSET is the best solution used by the very high end manufacturers. Legendary Mastersound brand - makes PF100 tube amplifier $50K USD. Fabulous musical EL34 tubes. To my knowledge, this model is absolutely the best value for integrated tube amplifier in that price range; made in Italy but priced similarly to comparable Chinese models. Includes very good phono pre-amplifier - same as in the flagship models.  This is Box R version with remote control (cost $330 AUD extra).

      Item Condition: Excellent, Used
      Reason for selling: New Project/Custom Build
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.
       
      Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth. 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best) IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle) IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold. Full VTA Adjustment - no VTA adjuster.  All original weights and headshell weights/spacers included to adjust to any cart. Custom Acrylic Dust Cover to accomodate arm height No cart included, but I did have an Ortofon MC25e on it and it was stunning.  
      *I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the external motor PSU and controller with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed "The Samurai"
       
      For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance included.
       
      For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.
