The JVC DLA-X7900 was launched last December and is still our reference point when it comes to comparison reviews.
The DLA-X7900 offers stunning SDR performance with superb black levels, shadow detail and accuracy.
There is a genuine cinematic feel to the JVC’s projected images that no other projector currently on the market can compete against. Images have superb depth thanks to strong black levels and highly detailed shadows that create the perfect depth to dark or murky scenes, like our favourite Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Blu-ray. The opening scene is a dank and wet affair with thunder overhead, rain falling all around and the choir starting to build within the sound mix. As this happens, we pull back on Caesar, his fur is wet and with the DLA-X7900 there is depth to that coat and we can make out strands of hair in the darkest areas. There
Overall, there are no projectors at this price point or below which can provide such a superb cinematic image with SDR and HDR content. This is the perfect partner for a bat-cave dedicated cinema room where the dynamic range and contrast can really shine.
