Why? Because we do not live in the '50's when you could be lucky to see 16.5 foot-Lamberts on the very best screens. Now, it is clear from comparisons with reality that even my 50+ foot-Lambert recommendation is highly subjective based on ambient lighting conditions!!!

In the end, I'm not at all certain that Merdian hasn't just made a consumer SRX-R projector (from JVC and using JVC technology) with better contrast ratio.

Everyone's thoughts, please? Perhaps Bob Stuart will join us for a commentary on design requirements in the 21st century!
