Frankely this one is the best choice all around in my opinion.

Thanks for the feedback on Runco, that is good to know. I will take them off my short list.

As far as the Marantz prejector, I am trying to find a professional review b/w it and the RS1 and/or the RS2. It seems like they are very compariable projectors for a similar price.

There are many to consider, of course, but from everything I have read, the new JVC models, the DLA-RS2, and the DLA-HD100 (basically the same projector), are among the best in the $5K to $10K range. I would also look at the Sony VPL-VW60, the Mitsubishi HC6000, and the Panasonic PT-AE2000U, which all have street prices under $5K, but are highly rated nonetheless. But I think if you can afford $7,995, or whatever the street price of the JVC is, it is probably the best in that price range, and I do think the improvements over the RS1 and HD1 are worth the extra bucks.

Here is a quote from the review: (for the complete review, go to
http://www.projectorcentral.com/jvc_dla_rs2_home_theater_projector.htm)

"In the final analysis, the JVC RS2 surpasses not only the RS1, but all of the 1080p competition anywhere near or below its price range when its natural, filmlike characteristics are taken into consideration. This has always been the latent strength of JVC's D-ILA technology, and it shows itself in impressive fashion on the RS1 and RS2 series of projectors. For our taste, JVC has achieved an ideal balance between image sharpness and a natural, lifelike quality.

Last spring it was an easy decision to give the JVC DLA-RS1 our Editor's Choice Award. The RS2 is a step up in performance, clearly surpassing the RS1 in contrast, black level, and color saturation. In our view it is certainly worth the extra money just for the incremental improvements in picture quality alone. The new features of powered lens, HDMI 1.3, and anamorphic lens compatibility are just icing on the cake. Thus, it is an equally easy decision to give the JVC DLA-RS2 our Editor's Choice Award as well."
