I saw a big improvement overall going from my RS600 to my RS4500. So, with the same lens in the RS3000 / NX9, there will be a visible improvement over an RS400 in my opinion. 4K / HDR especially.

I'm hoping to see a (partially) similar jump from my RS600 to the RS3000 as you did to the RS4500. I had the opportunity to demo the Sony 995 at Kris' house today, and given the difference he has seen between the 885 and 995 image he thought the better lens was some part of the "image solidity" increase. If my RS3000 had arrived this week, we would have done a mini shootout. Now, hopefully soon.

With the new firmware update, things are looking really good. :)

I had some friends over tonight for a movie. For two of them it was their first real home theater experience. We ended up watching A Quiet Place on UHD Bluray. I was almost more impressed with the audio than I was with the video. The 7.1 mix was excellent. I had hoped to watch this on my new RS2000, but my "slummin' it" X500 eshift3 unit still looked very, very good. The two first-timers were so impressed they wanted to know when they could come over again, haha!

I was just reading a glowing summary of someone's subjective impressions of his new N7 (RS2000), which replaced an X750 (RS500) by BruceJK on the other forum:

Quote
I originally decided to upgrade from the X750 to the NX7 for the 4K HDR benefits alone. This was due to the major headline changes of native 4K resolution and the auto tone mapping for HDR. I used custom curves on the X750 (3 curves for Dolby Cinema emulation) but felt that this could be better. Because the Apple TV 4K is my primary source the Panasonic 820 doesn't help me.

I assumed that the best I could do for 1080P SDR on the NX7 was to equal the X750 and I actually expected the NX7 to lag behind a bit because of the lower rated on/off contrast.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The NX7 improves on the X750 in every way and the difference is clearly visible in everyday viewing. I'm not talking about pixel peeping at close distances but actually using it like a normal customer would. The new chassis must contain a lot of internal improvements over the previous lineup. Some of these may be small, subtle improvements but they all add up and the end result makes for amazing viewing.

Basically the image looks like a giant 110 inch 21:9 OLED all the time. I haven't seen a single flaw to mar the picture when viewing from 2X screen height which is really close. Nothing distracts you from the viewing experience.

1. The image is calm, crisp, and incredibly detailed.
2. No lamp flicker or video noise.
3. There is no streaking or ghosting visible on real world content from a normal viewing distance. Much better than my X750.
4. Overall contrast performance matches the X750.
5. Superb convergence even at 4K resolution.
6. No stuck pixels detected (out of 24 million!).
7. Motion is much better. I don't use CMD but even straight 24p telecine motion is noticeably cleaner.
8. The auto tone mapping for HDR is excellent. It's just plug and play assuming the metadata is decent and easy to adjust manually if its not.
9. The HDMI handshake is nearly twice as fast as the X750 and rock solid. I haven't had a single glitch or dropout on any source.
10. Build quality is high. Fit and finish is excellent though I do miss the high gloss black.

Very promising post. I'm hoping to see the same benefits when JVC USA finally starts releasing these projectors to dealers/buyers. I'm excited to take a look and provide information about the RS2000 when it finally arrives. I hope we see these projectors start to ship out this week, but I suppose only JVC knows when.  :-\

They will take a while to ship all of the pre-orders, once they start shipping. Hopefully starting in another week or so.

To me that post might be a little honeymoonish, I have seen the NX9 (good sample) and it is a very good projector, but not such a big improvement over the later 1080p e-shift models as BruceJK describes... 8)

I don't necessarily agree. But, when it comes to video improvements in my theater, I'm pretty much a " money is no object " type of person. The JVC native 4k projectors look sharper and with less video noise to me, vs my previous RS600.

The RS4500 I had was a nice step up over my RS600 and the RS3000 look at CEDIA reminded me a lot of the look of my 4500, so really looking forward to the RS3000. :)

That is ok with me, but the NX9 did not give me a WOW feeling compared to my Cineversum. It probably is quite a bit better, but we need to do a side by side to be able to see the differences. When watching the NX9 in one room and then watching my own in my room the next day I am not able to see any difference. 8)

That is the difference in having no kids vs two kids, especially when both are in college. :)

The largest difference will be with 4K material mastered in 4K. That's the money shot, baby !

29 years old, no kids here! Though I did just buy a new home 6 months ago, so I've been a little more conscientious about my spending lately.

Tested all kinds of material and will do the same when doing the side by side. ;)

Congrats on the new home. I remember what that was like. I built my first home when I was 28.
