The RS-2’s inaccurate color is my biggest complaint. I don’t know why JVC and other manufacturers continue to give us primary color points that are way beyond what our system can deliver. It certainly doesn’t help in the quest for accurately reproducing a director’s film (read: artwork).
JVC could also improve on the internal video processing, specifically how it handles film-based material. Lastly, I would ask for more light output by way of a larger lamp, so the unit can light up somewhat larger screen sizes without being overdriven.
At this level of investment in a projector, I expect at least reasonably accurate color, if not dead-on to the system specifications, and the JVC’s reds and greens are simply too far away from our system references to be taken seriously. If I had my druthers, I would have JVC give us accurate primary color points, which would further reduce light output, and increase the size of the lamp to make up for the loss of light output. Compare this to the awesome Sony VPL-VW200, although considerably more expensive, that has an option in the menu to select a color setting that is exceptionally accurate, and you will see the world of difference accurate primary colors make in a home theater. Blacks and consequently contrast ratio on the RS-2 are exceptional, and the projector delivers on its 1080p-resolution promise, at least with video material. If JVC were to improve on the color accuracy of the RS-2, it would have a compelling product at an attractive and relatively uninhabited price point.
