Unfortunately the review is on Widescreen Reviews subscriber website. But the figures are now floating around the american AVS forum : With lamp in high mode, auto iris on and contrast adjustment maxed the new Sony delivers a contrast ratio of 5834:1 with light output of 658 lumens. After calibration to D65 CR measured 4000:1 and 400 lumens output. It'll be interesting to see what Cine4home.de can achieve with a filter and calibration. There was some concern with regards SDE on an 8' screen but that CR measurement has me hooked ! Cheers, Rob. Oh, And no VB on the review sample !
