The things is the sequential contrast ratio isn't affected. The peak white and the lowest black have the same relationship as with a single projector but the total light output is doubled. To see any advantage to HDR one needs to be able to lower the overall APL then allow the specular highlights to have a ton of light. With one projector the APL was way too low generally leaving it just looking flat for much of the presentation...not any more.

But I guess if you have the $$$ to afford such a setup, then it was not your problem to solve either...
It is a lot of work aligning the two ,no doubt, and I was intimately involved in the process. I think you are misguided if you think just because I have money that I can't or won't do things for myself. Of course, there are things which I choose to delegate to others (I don't do my own plumbing work for example)

I've had a theater in my home since 1999 using CRTs. I've upgraded the room and projection many time but it's my hobby and a passion.

The room is a place to recharge and watch movies an escape to be sure.

I never get tired of the room.

In my home theater, I used Optoma GT750ST, I found it a well balanced overall, light, wireless, awesome contrast ratio, excellent bright, light-weight, tons of cons and suitable as for watching and for gaming too, 2 in 1 purposes, I'm very pleased to use it!

I don't partake, but I'd imagine 3D viewings would benefit greatly as well.

LG OLED55C7P (professionally ISF calibrated by Kevin Miller). It's not much but does the job for me.

Using 2 Epsons ,had the older 2d Model until I upgraded for 3D, still use it for casual viewing just to keep the thing exercised , still has a great picture. Mid height on the wall so it projects on center of screen , easier to clean and adjust too. When viewing 2.35 content I drop lens to the bottom of screen and also drop a mask to eliminate gray bars. can see it in pics of my setup.

-Heh, I like how the site doesn't accept the model in all caps and automatically makes everything lower case.
