    I am in the process of setting up a "Theater-Type" viewing area in my finished basement. I have absolute light control and a 14'x20' area. I will have an awesome audio system including Klipsch Forte II's and KG4's. I also have a SVS 1646 PCi sub, all equalized by Behringer. I will run Outlaw Audio 950 pre/pro and a 5-7 Ch amp (yet to be determined).

    The 14' wall will be the front. Seating will be approx.11'-14' from the screen. I am considering a DLP rear projector (since my ceiling is 7') and have noticed some of the same things I have read. Like,the glare on the new Mitsu tv's. On the JVC D-ILA, the one I saw was unclear and fuzzy around images. Not sure if there wasw a set-up or focus adjustment needed, just my observation. The ones that looked the best to me were an LG RU-52SZ51D (52") or a Samsung HL-5063W (50"). My budget for this tv is well under $3k.

    What a mouthful! I would appreciate any comments; including size of screen, brands, suggestions of other items I might consider, etc.

    Glad I was sent to this site, everyone seems positive, enthusiastic, and dedicated to help.

    I've spoken lately about my parents new Mitsu 525725 and there is little glare problems, even in a room full of table lamps. It is an amazing DLP with a BEAUTIFUL picture, and it can be purchased for under $3K if you play your cards right.

    If you want to go a bit cheaper you can get the Mitsu 52525 and just take off the protective screen. It's screen if far worse than the upper end Mitsubishi's.

    Good luck in your search!

    What you're describing would be the perfect place for a front projector. You can get a 6'-10' screen, and lower-end projectors start at about $1K.

    I'm with Alf S. I just bought a Mits 62725. I love it. My viewing space isn't very big, so I have a lot of areas where you are looking from an odd angle, and I only notice a slight raise in darkness.

    I have zero complaints.[​IMG]

    I have a 52" JVC D-ILA and I think it has the best picture i've seen in a digital display but it doesn't forgive a bad signal. HD on the JVC is incredible and DVD's looks great also but SD looks pretty crappy.
