Moving up to premium single chip DLP projector provides higher build quality for the projector combined with better optics and a higher end version of the DMD chip being used. There are a few manufacturers of such premium DLP projectors and these models generally carry a price of $10,000 to $25,000. This includes models from SIM2, such as the Nero series (pictured – starting at $19,900 MSRP).
Finally at the top of the performance and price scale for DLP projectors are those premium models that use three DMD chips. Generally such 3 chip DLP projectors offer relatively high light output and are suitable for use with larger screens than would appropriate with most single chip home theater class projectors. SIM2 offers several series of such 3-chip DLP projectors within their well regarded Lumis C3x series with the Lumis 3D - Solo model (pictured below) being the least expensive model at near $39,000.
