Sometimes you can just say too much.

Couldn't agree more. Somebody (can't remember who) came up with the great phrase; "Why use one word when none will do?".

Worth every penny! It made such a difference. Gordon's been to the Isle of Man too wink
I came across Gordon at Convergent AV after Shaun mentioned him on here a while ago. I contacted him recently re some (black) cinema wall coverings & ended up (yesterday) buying a Lumagen Pro 4242 scaler & I'm looking forward to Gordon visiting us to install / configure it & to calibrate the PJ once we've moved out to France. That's service!

Hmm. Any thoughts on the Samsung QE75Q7F (as the price of this is now sub £4k)? Presumably the same product family as Jon bought originally? Would be a replacement for my projector (82" screen) if I can get it into the basement; and I'd need to feed it from my Lumagen XD.

Another quite serious possibility would be the (considerably cheaper) Samsung UE75MU8000. I know this is an LED TV, but it would be going into a cave. What are the main disadvantages? Obviously blacks won't be as black as on the QLED. I note that this model has a 10 year screen burn warranty.

In terms of picture quality, I'm looking for something comparable to my aging JVC HD-1 projector. The primary reason for a change would be elimination of projector fan noise.

That Vantablack would be ideal but may run over budget!

VK; I'd have thought that pretty much any modern TV would better an old PJ in terms of PQ & if you were "only" running an 82" screen then it would be a win-win. There are quite a few 75" sets out there that would pretty much give you the square-footage that you're used to.

In fact, I've just dug out an old copy of Home Cinema Choice (Sept 2017) where they test 4 premium sets; 3 OLEDs (LG 65" W7, £8,000 / Loewe Bild 7.65, £6,500 / Panasonic TX-65EZ1002, £6,000) against Sony's larger LCD (75" XE9405, £4,900) & they found the Sony to be the winner.

Presumably any still knocking around could be found for less than the prices quoted, too.
