Our Solaria One+ died. We are considering moving the replacement into the auditorium. Does anyone recall dB level of Solaria One+? It seemed very noisy and we would like to compare to what levels the new projectors advertise.

Thank you and Happy Easter, Vassar (MI) Theatre.

If you had one Solaria 1+ die on you why would you trust another? The Solaria 1 and 1+ have not been known as reliable machines.

Dear Sean,

The only way we would stay with that projector is if it made sense (i.e. affordable) to repair. It is not. Thanks to the support of our guests and larger community raising funds, we are investigating other options, both new and used.

In order to get an affordable solution we are moving the projector into the auditorium. There is no information on dB levels on the original Solaraia One+ spec sheets. We are just trying to figure out the fan noise might compare to 48 dB of one of the replacement candidates.

Hoping that makes sense, we thank you and send regards.

I can't tell you how the Solaria One compares to it by numbers, but I can tell you that e.g. a Barco DP2K-6E is very low noise (including the integrated server) and perfectly suited to be operated within an auditorium. As the Solaria One(+) uses xenon bulb and power supply, I think it is quite a bit louder...

I also think if Christie doesn't indicate the Solaria One noise level in their spec sheets, no one will have dependable numbers that can be compared to other machines.

Hallo Herr Kurz, Danke für den Hinweis und Vergleich.

DP2K-6E is listed with 48dB, the same as the NEC projector that we are able to use/afford. So that's very reassuring.

Wenn ich fragen darf: In welchem Kino arbeiten Sie in Köln? MfG, AFu.

Hallo,

nicht direkt in Köln, in Frechen im Linden-Theater. Wir benutzen neben unserem stationären Sony einen DP2K-6E, den wir in besonderen Situationen auch direkt hinter dem Publikum einsetzen. Der ist sehr leise, insbesondere auch in Anbetracht des bereits integrierten Servers, der ja sonst in Form von 19" Servern reichlich eigenen Lärm macht. Auch gibt es keine explizit nervenden hohen Frequenzanteile im Projektorgeräusch.

Ich habe auch Erfahrung mit dem NEC NC900, der ist auch sehr leise, aber doch noch einen Tacken lauter als der Barco. Der NC1000, auf den Sie wohl spekulieren, ist wohl noch ein kleines bißchen leiser und liegt dann wohl etwa auf dem gleichen Level wie der Barco.

Es gibt einen neuen kleinen DCI Sony, der nur 38dB machen soll. Ist aber ein etwas spezielles Gerät und bisher wohl auch nur in Japan verfügbar.

- Carsten

Royal mit Käse...

Random semi-relevant fact: The Quarter Pounder has never been on the German McDonald's menu as "The Quarter Pounder", but there currently is a version with tomatoes and mayonnaise called the Hamburger Royal TS.
