Btw guys has anyone noticed on low lamp mode at reasonable room temps if the front vent fan works ? Ive. noticed last night looking at the projector from the front the air was only coming out from the left vent. I noticed the right fan not moving. The aircon was on comfortable room temp and at low lamp mode. It was whisper quiet.

All good Al. My mistake I was looking at the frame of the fan, I looked closer and it works

I have just noticed that the N series seem to be showing up on sale.  Nx5 $7500 and NX7 $9500.  Is there an update on the way or ?  Is this normal and I just didn’t notice

No new models coming, these will run thru 2020. Just online pricing.

Probably best to buy from reputable dealer, most dealers could almost get to that price and you would have the peace of mind knowing if you have issues you have someone who cares to assist.

100% on this absolutely with a projector no matter the brand very important to buy for a reputable dealer that will stand by you for after sales. there are some turkeys that tend to sell on ebay and online. well worth checking "product review" and take note of the 1,2 and 3 star reviews.

It's actually been cheaper on Klapp before at $9399 from memory.  They run promotions from time to time.

Now some will remember my post a month and half back with some initial thoughts (franin quoted it a day or so ago
)

Looking back on that, I think with some 80 hours clocked up, post the frame adapt HDR update done and having viewed across a range of material from blu-ray to DVD to UHD blu-ray to streaming and FTA TV. Its worth reviewing my initial conclusions,

 

and it really is worth reviewing, as I indicated post the frame adapt HDR update particularly with UHD HDR material across streaming and via UHD blu-ray it literally feels like a whole new projector again... 

 

Firstly the frame adapt HDR update, has very much taken tone mapping to a new level. Infact I cant really believe how good it is. it really has been seamless set and forget on no matter what feed it. I am just using it on frame by frame and on auto and using the Wide colour gamut filter. Watching scenes in "for all mankind" on appleTV+ or the uhd of Casino Royale with  all the very bright sunshine shots to ones shot in darkness these are rendered quite beautifully. Same goes with material regardless of source whether it has meta data or not or whether metadata is screwy and regardless of source be it panasonic UHD player to oppo uhd to apple TV+ all just so seamless like water off a ducks back for the JVC. finally we have dynamic tone mapping that works and works so well and in the projector where i have always believed is where it belongs.

 

Where my conclusions have not wavered infact only further re enforced .... are on a quite a few counts. 

 

firstly if there are any bugs or problems... am sorry but i am yet ot see this. no white stripes or green stripes or yellowing or any sort of funny business...and i have kept my eyes peeled. 

 

secondly contrast. IF there is any loss of contrast on this latest n7 vs the previous gen x7000 that I owned. am sorry but I am not missing it.

 

What I have instead been experiencing movie after movie, watching new stuff and re discovering old title after title, what I can categorically say is that what i am seeing and enjoying in them is the best I have seen to date.

 

On a hifi forum if I were to describe in hifi terms...and i will do my best to do :D

 

vs previous gen JVC if i were to describe contrast in say terms of sub bass the difference quite honestly is between a speaker that can do say down to 30hz vs one that can do down to 20hz and possibly even more subtle than that given not missing it. on other hand where the N7 is literally running well ahead on the field is in pure clarity, dynamic range (due to dynamic tone mapping), and rendering of detail and colour in the image it creates.

 

And its not just stuff thats 4k UHD and with HDR and the very best reference material that only shines. I've been enjoying movie after movie on blu-ray, streaming and even older stuff thats maybe a bit on the rougher side of things. No looking back... and goodness number of hours i have clocked up in stuff ive watched in the last month or so is unheard off for me. Really am enjoying this thing with plenty more lined up to look forward to coming months and christmas break.... happy days !! :)

I have to agree AL Im impressed as well. I haven't clocked as many hours as you have but Ive watched a few films and Im enjoying it. Its great not too have to fiddle with controls when watching a movie. :)

Well finally got the N7 up and running, had the update already, which was pleasing, can I say WOW out of the box. Did a little playing around without my panamorph lens then with it and I think it looks better, or it could just be that I paid so much money for it and it should look better. The wife said she couldn't see any difference, but she didn't pay for it ha ha. The WOW factor of this PJ is fantastic, agree with Al, little less contrast but again its probably in my head, the shadow detail is brilliant. The detail of true 4K is worth the jump. The guy who installed it is a die hard SONY man and he was really impressed. Will be doing some tinkering this evening, can feel a sickie coming along, will need to ring myself in the morning to take a day off.
