Marantz VP-11 S1 review

 

A paid-up member of the full HD club, but at a price

Excellent picture clarity and quality ; Well built ; Standard-def material looks good too

Very expensive

You're paying top dollar with no discounts for this top of the top-end model. If you have the money to spare, however, it's a safe investment

Marantz VP-11S1H DLP Projector

 

We were enthralled by Marantz's VP-15S1 projector, so can its more expensive VP-11S1H win us over again?

On paper I wasn't sure the 11S1H had quite enough in its locker to justify costing a grand more than Marantz's already stunning 15S1. But in the end I suspect that to the 11S1H's target market, spending a grand to pretty much remove DLP's rainbow...

Marantz VP-11S1 review

 

It might well be the best 1080p one-chip projector on the market, but does that justify that mammoth price tag?

We searched through our bag of superlatives, and couldn’t find an adjective that would do this projector justice. Although “expensive” springs to mind.

Marantz VP11S1

 

The Marantz VP11S1 is currently the best 1080p one-chip DLP projector on the market, but it does come at a premium price point.

Produces an extremely sharp and well-defined picture ; Accurate colour decoding ; Very flexible in setup ; Excellent feature package including blanking

Extremely expensive ; Primary colours are not accurate and not adjustable ; Light output is relatively low, which means it won't drive large screen sizes

There is no question that Marantz's VP11S1 is one of the best 1080p resolution digital projectors money can buy. Perhaps the best direct comparison would be with the aforementioned Sony VPL-VW100 "Ruby" SXRD three-panel LCoS projector. Image clarity...

Welcome back, Marantz, you've been missed. The VP-11S1 is a deadly rival for the established high-end projector specialists

Marantz VP-11S1 Front Projector: Coming Attraction

 

Marantz jumped out of the 1080p DLP gate first with the VP-11S1, and if the accolades this projector has received from our sister publication Ultimate AV are an indication, it's the cat's pajamas. Marantz's 720p DLPs have been universally acclaimed,...

Marantz VP-11S1 Single-chip DLP Projector

 

We saw static displays of single-chip 1080p DLPs at CES '06, and we've been expecting to see the first working native 1080p DLP front projectors at CEDIA. But Marantz blew all that away in May when it had their video guru Dan Miller contact me and ask...

Marantz VP-11S1 Single-chip DLP Projector

 

1080p display devices have been proliferating rapidly, and it's been bit of a surprise that DLP front projection, which has led the charge of digital displays for years, has been late to the party. Not anymore.

Marantz VP-11S1 DLP Video Projector

 

Introduction These are exciting days as the Marantz VP-11S1 is the first consumer 1920 x 1080 DLP front projector on the market. Retailing for $19,999, the VP-11S1 certainly isn't inexpensive, but if it keeps pace with the precedent set by the VP-12...
