I've actually had mine for what, 3 weeks now, and I am dying to fire this thing up and completely test it out.

I am still building the theater and I made a solemn promise that I would not install the screen or the projector till I was finished. I did take it out of the box and test it to make sure it was not DOA and everything seems to check out.

I threw up a quick 120" image and it was incredible. I spent a couple of hours setting all the settings to where I knew I wanted everything...no e-shift, CMD off, DI to manual for now, and I tested high/low lamp.

The fan is a tad bit loud on high lamp but not worried about it since I will hush box it.

Tested it with "Lucy" UHD and the colors were just incredible. Also did a few tests with Pacific Rim, Oblivion, and The Matrix (all UHD) and I was happy with what I saw. The Nvidia Shield seems to send out all the needed HDR info so the tone mapping seemed to be working.

So back in the box it went...cried a little. Ok, a lot!!! Until I finish this damn theater room. Doing it all by myself so it is a very slow process.

I've got mine with the Paladin DCR and its the most beautiful image I've ever seen projected and is a huge upgrade from my RS500. It blows my local cinema away. I've found myself putting in discs to demo for a few minutes and ended up watching the entire movie I'm just so mesmerized by the image being thrown, whether it be a blu-ray, 4k blu-ray or streaming.

I had some weird syncing issues with my OPPO 203 at first but i changed my cable from a Monoprice copper cable to one of the RUIpro cables and it seems to have cleared up. I'm also really happy that DI pumping on end credits seems to be a thing of the past as well. I haven't noticed any pumping on the dozen or so that I've watched. In general the DI doesn't seem to be as aggressive as my RS500 but black levels still look pretty good to me, at least comparable to my RS500 which I was a little worried about.

Also this thing is an absolute beast... getting it up to the mount, even with assistance was challenging haha.

Good news regarding the D.I.  I prefer a less aggressive iris with less / no artifacts myself.

It would be great if you could confirm my theory about why the filter numbers vary so much between low lamp and high lamp, and see if you also get a 10% cut with the filter in high lamp and 20% in low lamp.


Dylan has confirm the 10% cut in high lamp, but I don't think he has confirmed yet the 20% cut in low lamp (or I missed it).


If you can come up with an explanation, given that no additional filter seems to slide in when low lamp is enabled, it would also be welcome, because frankly I have no idea :)

Been a busy week with work. Haven't had much time to spend with the projector. I'm hoping to do a full calibration tomorrow or Monday. I will check low lamp to see if my unit measures like yours. I'm guessing it will because I measured the same 10% loss with high lamp.

Great, looking forward to your results, and sorry, I didn’t mean this as a “hurry up!” :)

I’m done with calibration for now (just ran a Lightning LUT in Calman for my SDR rec-709 calibration with excellent results). Tomorrow is for the family (they haven’t seen me most of the week between work and the rs2000!) and I’ll have a couple of days early next week when I hope to be able to watch a few films in full work permitting after putting the rs2000 on its permanent (upper) shelf and setting all the installation modes for my various aspect ratios.

What I find interesting, and is something I want to measure for myself, is that you found that enabling the P3 filter boosts native contrast to about 30,000:1. Unless I misread your posts. I measured ~23000:1 native without the filter. A 30% increase in contrast with just a 10% loss of light seems like a great trade off.


Edit: I just re-read your post and it's the other way around. The filter decreases contrast.

Maybe I got it wrong somewhere, please can you let me know where you read what you mention in your edit?

It's the opposite, as in the main part of your post: 24,000:1 without the filter, 30,000:1 with the filter, so using the filter brings 20% on/off here, this is one of the reasons why I recommend using it especially in high lamp if you can afford the 10% brightness cut.

All my contrast measurements are in the contrast measurements (advanced section of the calibration thread). I've added three zips, one for BT2020 (filter), one for HDR (no filter), one for High Bright (max measurements).

I have measured BT2020 and HDR in high lamp iris open: with the filter, without the filter, with and without the DI.

I am excited to get my 3000 also. Probably two to three weeks away. The image of the 3000 at CEDIA reminded me of my RS4500 I sold, so really looking forward to getting it.
