JVC DLA-NZ9 8K laser projector review

It’s difficult to imagine that anything much better than this projector exists for home cinema right now. Doubtless, when 8K content becomes more accessible, we’ll find new ways to enjoy the performance of this machine. Even now, though, this is home projection at its very best.

Audiovision (German text)

“The JVC DLA-NZ9 delivers a home theater experience at the highest level and storms to the top of our projector charts.”

The 4K laser light projector with 8K e-Shift technology gets the most out of current beamer technology with its impressive HDR performance, excellent sharpness, high brightness and rich black.

LowBeats (German text)

“In my opinion, the new generation of JVC projectors has become surprisingly expensive. And yet the price increase is justified - as the top model JVC DLA-NZ9 can impressively demonstrate.”

"They conjure up a plasticity on the canvas that was previously almost impossible to achieve. This is especially true for HDR images, which I have only known with such a realistic radiance in the combination of high-end projectors plus a separate image processor.”"

“The overall performance is superb, with gorgeously detailed 4K images, jaw-dropping HDR, and that all-important film-like quality.”

The JVC DLA-NZ8 is an exceptional 4K HDR projector that delivers on its promise of taking the company's existing strengths and adding a host of new cutting-edge features. The BLU-Escent laser light source brings a longer life, greater consistency and brighter images without compromising the black levels or increasing the fan noise. With a perfect score '10 out of 10' it's clear  there is no direct competitor, the JVC NZ8 is clearly the best choice.

Tech Radar (English text)

“The JVC DLA-NZ8 isn’t cheap, but if you’re serious about home cinema you won’t find a better specified or more feature-packed 4K projector.”

The picture quality benefits from class-leading blacks, state-of-the-art HDR tone mapping, and cutting-edge 8K/e-shiftX processing. There’s also a laser light source with a very long lifespan, and HDMI 2.1 inputs for added future proofing.

JVC's DLA-NZ8 Wins Home Cinema Choice's - Reference Status

"It wasn't a huge surprise when JVC announced its new NZ series of laser-powered projectors last autumn, but what did surprise was the full extent of the upgrade. These new beamers include all the features found on the previous generation, but add HDMI 2.1 inputs capable of handling 8K/60p and 4K/120p, an upgraded iteration of its 8K e-Shift technology (dubbed e-ShiftX), and support for HDR10+." Steve Withers from Home Cinema Choice.”




LowBeats (German text)

“If you want to have everything on board that is technically possible at the moment and in the near future, you can hardly get around the JVC DLA-NZ7”

And for the increased price compared to its direct predecessor, the DLA-N7, you get an extra package of capabilities and features that is quite impressive.




HDTV (German text)

“The JVC DLA-NP5 storms into our reference class with outstanding HDR performance, excellent color reproduction and an extensive equipment package.”

"Compared to the much more expensive 8K laser light models, the differences in image quality are much smaller than the price range would suggest.”

LowBeats (German text)

“The JVC developers have really worked in the right places. Compared to the predecessor DLA-N5, the JVC DLA-NP5 has gained significantly in all important areas (and in almost all points of criticism)”

The message of the NP5 is: It doesn't necessarily have to be a laser. Honest, clear images are required, technically prepared for all sources. This is how home cinema is fun.

Cine Science / Ekki Schmidt (Cine4Home) (German spoken)

"Based on picture quality, it’s the best in it’s price range. No laser, but provides definitely much which offsets. If you’re looking for picture quality, it’s the absolute top.”

"Definitely thumbs up. Two thumbs up. It’s not just an N5 redone. It’s a real update. HDM1 2.1, HDR10+, New Hardware. Better contrast. It’s not a direct successor to the N5, it’s an upgrade. In principle a new model If you need a laser, it does not have that. Very hard to find right now”
