I'm hoping someone can tell me if this set up sounds good. This will be a budget theater room- basically instead of spending $1200ish on a TV, we will get a projector and surround sound instead. Here's the projector I'm thinking of getting:
I will mount it upside down from the ceiling- we have a 18 inch drop in the ceiling in our rec room downstairs that covers the large beam that goes across the house. It is about 9 feet from the wall. The couch will be behind there so about 10-11 feet from the screen. We will buy a screen later once I set it up and see what size of a screen might work(or even paint the wall since it's pretty smooth and the only thing on it is an outlet which might be low enough anyway). The surround sound system I'm thinking of getting is this:
So to my understanding... since the system has a blu-ray player and receiver built in, I would connect the HDMI "out" to the projector and my directv genie would go into the HDMI "in"? All I need is the projector, this home theater sound system and some high speed HDMI cables?
Thanks for the help!
