Here, we will compare two home theater projectors: the JVC DLA-RS600U and the Sony VPL-VW365ES.
These two higher end home theater projectors are very different from each other, which will either drive you crazy trying to choose, or make it simple. It also makes for a fairly short comparison.
This comparison is one of several, between projectors that won awards in our latest (2016) Best Home Theater Projector Report, which is going live in sections, the same day I published this and another comparison - Epson Home Cinema 5040UB vs JVC RS400U. Other comparisons will follow, and then they will be integrated into the full report as it is completed. Enjoy. -art
